We incurred a 350 dollar smoking charge and we're evicted from both our rooms, I personally do not smoke but one of the members of our party decided to make a stupid choice and set off the alarm on the room. For you reading this, I'm okay with everything up to this point, I believe in accountability and my name...

Chris I am terribly sorry your stay with us ended the way it did. We take the cleanliness and condition of our hotel very seriously and we do all we can to deter guests from smoking in the room. You are correct, at the end of the day, the guest who has registered to the room is indeed responsible for...

Very professional staff and lovely lobby and rooms in this historic hotel. Check out the Drum Room, the hotel's bar. Historic, and the bar staff are really skilled at making drinks. Our room had a nice view of the Power & Light District, and the location of the hotel was perfect for parking the car and walking to dining and...

Just stayed at the Hilton President for two nights while in town for a Royals game. I had read that the Hilton had spent millions renovating the old hotel and they did this masterfully by making modern upgrades while keeping the charming 1930s feel. Pros: 1) Location is key - which is usually the driving factor we use for booking...

Thanks for sharing some candid thoughts about your visit to the President. It sounds like you had a great visit, but there were a couple of little nuisance issues. We do appreciate your time and thoughts. We would love to see you again if your travels bring you to Kansas City. Philip

Loved this hotel. It's in a great location, with bars and restaurants nearby but it's just far enough away to still be quiet. It's an old building but has been well renovated, and my room was great with a comfy bed and good corner view. Check in staff were great, the gym was fine and the restaurant and bar downstairs...

Absolutely fabulous! The staff and facilities are great. When you walk in you just feel the history...the hotel was built in 1926 and the architecture is amazing. The front desk staff was very friendly as well as helpful. The rooms were clean and mine did have an updated bathroom. Most importantly beds and pillows were comfortable. Breakfast was to our...

The first annoyance occurred upon arrival, learning this hotel is located in Missouri and not Kansas as the Hilton app represented. Once I got over that I marveled at the beauty around me. This 1920's property has been completely renovated and is charming. What it isn't is a fancy feeling Hilton...more like a tall Hampton Inn. The staff was friendly...

Incredibly rude waitstaff at breakfast, very mediocre food, and no fresh towels. The place was clean enough, but the neighborhood is noisy. Can't beat the location if you can get past that!! Such a disappointment from Hilton.

I thought this would be a neat old hotel for a visit to KC recently. I will say, the lobby is neat but if you can't get a room facing the city then pass on this place. The "interior" rooms will remind you of a scene from Shawshank redemption. And they will be unaccommodating once you discover this and unlikely...

We are locals but we choose to do a "staycation" at least once a year. We love to stay at the Hilton President. The location is absolutely perfect as it sits inside of the Power and Light District, making it easy to walk to several destinations. Our room was great (as expected). We had great views of P&L. We really...
