This was our second stay at The Hilton President KC. We are locals but find that it's nice to just get away from everything for an evening occasionally.
Booking was easy. We asked for a corner room facing the P&L district and did get it. Room 402. Check in was easy and went smoothly.
We had 2 complaints of the room, which we addressed to the front desk at check out. The room thermostat was set at 65 but it never was completely cooled off in the room. It was set to 65 when we arrived to the room and that was the lowest that it would go but it felt 75-80 at best. It made for a not so comfortable sleeping night. The other complaint was the carpet. It was terribly sticky everywhere. Not a humid sticky....just a yuck sticky. When I let the front desk know, the girl replied with "sorry". I hope that they do look into it.
We did intend to have Starbucks on the way out (it was almost noon on Sunday) but Starbucks was not open. That was disappointing as well. Not sure why they wouldn't be open on a Sunday afternoon.
Overall, we love Hilton properties and love the President and will stay again, more than likely. However, I do hope that they fix the things that were addressed. It's such a great property.
