Was in Kansas City for the first time for a concert at the sprint center. We wanted a no hassle place to stay within walking distance to the center, which this place was....3 blocks! For this fact it made the price of the room a little more tolerable, when you have to consider parking, driving and traffic. It was an...

Thanks for sharing your thoughts about your visit to our hotel. It sounds as if we did not live up to your expectations in a few areas. I am terribly sorry there were a couple of issues.

Our two night stay was shortly after the Big 12 tournament crowd left town. The hotel was fairly quiet and we were offered an upgrade to a corner room with view because the room we selected during mobile check-in wasn't yet ready. Lovely room, great view. The hotel (and room) was clean. The staff was friendly and responded quickly to...

The historic hotel is walking distance to the Power and Light District. The room was comfortable, however, our room faced the P&L and the music was easily heard thru the night which was annoying. The breakfast buffet was good. We hadn't received a voucher for breakfast, but our server gave us one. We ate in the downstairs restaurant for dinner...

My husband and I recently stayed at the Hilton President in the Power and Light District of Kansas City. We were there for the Big 12 Tournament. This is a very nice hotel and close to the Excel Center where the tournament was held. The hotel was very busy this weekend. Our room was nice, not real big but worked...

I have stayed at this hotel 5 times now and this is the worst stay by far. For the price charged for a room you would think hot water would be available.

I would have expected a lot more from a Hilton in downtown KC/Power and Light. For the priced we paid, would have expected a very pleasant experience... not the case. Overall -- way overpriced for the quality that we received. Check in went well, valet met us in the street to get our car. Front desk had our reservation ready...

I had a wonderful Girls' Weekend with some friends and my cousin. The double bed room was very comfortable. Although, the price was a bit more than what I usually spend for a hotel, the the convenience of location was worth spending a little extra. We will visit this place again.
