“Charm and luxury”
Reviewed 28 April 2014

In the heart of downtown, and right next to the Poer and Light District, this hotel is a wonderfully charming destination. Rooms were impeccable, views over the city are outstanding. It's like a time-warp back to a different age, but with all the modern luxury of today. Great location, one of the best stays in a downtown hotel anywhere.

What a spectacular review. Thank you for taking the time to share your thoughts about your visit. The hotel is just in a perfect location for nearly any reason to travel to Kansas City. Entertainment, arts, shopping is right outside the door. Thanks again for your time and your kind words about our historic hotel.

What a great property and location! We stayed 2 nights and the service and rooms were top notch! We were within walking distance of everything we needed and loved going to the Power & Light District for lunch and dinner. The rooms were spacious and efficient and the house keeping service was on top of everything (we left for an hour to grab lunch and came back and our room was cleaned). I am already planning a trip back to Kansas City for a romantic getaway and my trip will be planned around getting a room at the Hilton President!

The parking garage is not attached to the building. There is a non-functional elevator in a very dark corner of the parking garage. Be very careful. There is a strong vanilla order in the hotel that seems to be trying to mask some other odor. If you are sensitive to smells you should be aware of this. I had difficulty with telephone support. When calling with a simple question/request, I was met with indifference and waited on hold for it to boot.

Thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts. I am terribly sorry you did not find the parking situation to your satisfaction. As a downtown hotel parking is at a premium. The parking garage is not attached to the building, but is a safe 25-30 foot walk to the hotel. Valet parking is always an option as well. Again, my sincere apologies for your issues. We do hope to see you again in the future.

Correct yet efficient service at this Hotel. If you desire the little extras that make a business trip tolerable, choose the Hilton President. Also, for dining options you do not have to stray far, not even out the door. The Providence Restaurant is a great choice for dinner whether you are alone or with colleagues. Top Notch menu selection and internet access are a great combo when preparing for tomorrow's meeting!

Stayed a night for a business visit. Great location, very clean, professional staff, and great dining options. I highly recommend this hotel! Also, the parking garage is very well maintained and right behind the hotel.

Stayed at this hotel for a wedding weekend where most events took place at the hotel. The hotel provided shuttle service to rehearsal dinner location, great space for bridal party to get ready in, phenomenal service, etc. Basically the crew here made sure all needs were met by everyone involved with the wedding and provided a beautiful venue for the event. I would highly recommend this venue for any event! Also--Sammy the event coordinator is wonderful :)

This place is unique and beautiful. Love staying here and both weddings I've attended here have been lovely. The banquet room is absolutely breathtaking. The rooms are clean and the location is perfect for Power & Light district.
