Hotel Phillips Kansas City, Curio Collection by Hilton
Ranked #29 of 109 Hotels in Kansas City
Reviewed 15 September 2017

Stayed there in early July 2017 for 1 night. Great location within the "power & light district" of downtown Kansas City. Hotel has a basement speakeasy with secret access. Valet only parking for $26 a night is the only downside BUT there didn't appear to be any nearby overnight self park garages. Checkout the next morning was an exercise in patience due to the wait for valet to retrieve vehicles. Room was very spacious and the building architecture was period specific. Room was clean and bed was very comfortable. Hotel is located within walking distance to dozens of eateries and nightclubs. Minor negative for me was no onsight snacks after the bar closed BUT the Marriott next door had snacks for sale all night. No complaints at all.

The hotel is in a great location you can pretty much walk to any bar or restaurant in power and light. The hotel itself if very neat. Our room was not the cleanest : used k cup in coffee maker, pubic hair in the bath tub, hair in the corner of the bathroom. Also the most uncomfortable bed!!!! So broken down it needed replaced so badly. We had a horrible night sleep both nights and left with stiff backs. The lock on the door also fell off during out stay.

For 48 hours, I felt as if I was in New York City....the style and decor of the hotel are breath-taking. The Staff is professional and extremely courteous. The rooms were a dream! Not another Dr's waiting room style guest room, but Suite like space with very comfortable beds.

I've been wanting to try this hotel since I first visited KC a couple of months ago and even though there were some minor irritants, I did enjoy my stay. Here are few things to highlight:
1. Get a room on a high floor, but don't get the corner room like I did. The room itself was large, but it was right next to the emergency exit and the Service Elevator. Whenever I walked past the Service Elevator, there was always either piles of towels, or dirty items stored there. There was also plenty of noise in the mornings as the cleaning crew got ready to start the day.
2. The Diamond members do get free breakfast but please not that only gets you a continental breakfast, and a very minimal one at that. This is a stark difference to the Hilton President that had an amazing breakfast fully cooked to order for Diamond members. Also staff were not the friendliest so you have to track them down if you need extra coffee.
3. The downstairs Speakeasy is pretty cool so check that out at the end of the day and have one of the bar staff make you a drink.

I'm sure I'll be back again in KC and this may be the place I will come back to again.

This was a really unique place to stay. Very old style hotel but has been completely redone inside. Really nice accommodations with the speak easy bar in the basement? The excellent coffee shop, and the restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner.
