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. 

From the press:
  • "Recent renovations have restored the Hilton President to the splendor of the building's original 1940s elegance. Just across from the city's new Power & Light District, the President it situated in one of downtown Kansas City's most up-and-coming areas" -- Fodor's
