Why We Love This Hotel

- A three-minute walk from the Convention Center and five minutes from the Sprint Center
- Home to a legendary lounge with a solid happy hour, two tasty restaurants and a Starbucks
- It's listed on the National Register of Historic Places but expect modern amenities like free in-room Wi-Fi
The Hilton President Kansas City is a 1920s-era hotel, listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It's located in the city's bustling Power and Light District, an area loaded with bars and restaurants, just a five-minute walk from the Convention Center and Sprint Center.
It would be difficult for guest rooms here to live up to the grandeur of the building itself, so unfortunately they're a bit of a letdown, but the beds are comfortable, the walls are thick and there's free Wi-Fi. The fitness center is also pretty basic, and there's no pool.
On-site dining includes two tasty restaurants and a lounge with a solid happy hour. The lounge has quite a history as well, having served as a venue for performers such as Frank Sinatra and Patsy Cline.
