I stayed at Hotel Phillips while traveling to KC for work meeting. The hotel is beautiful and rooms are lovely and spacious. Hotel has valet parking and free shuttle to anywhere within 3 miles. Very convenient. My co-workers (all women) loved this hotel.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 25 March 2017 via mobile

I travel to KC a lot for work. This hotel is an amazing historic gym in downtown Kansas City. Check out this hotel on Wikipedia for some pretty amazing details about its history and architectural style. The hotel offers great customer service, amazing art deco and Edwardian style architecture around every corner. The rooms are very comfortable --comfy beds. The...

Had a king deluxe room, which was roomy, clean, and comfortable. An older hotel recently renovated, it is very convenient to the Convention Center and the Power and Light entertainment district. The room had plenty of outlets including bedside to keep all the electronics charged up. A Keurig machine was another nice amenity. The only complaints are (1) the in...

Location: Perfectly situated in downtown KC. Walking distance to sprint center, power and light and Bartle hall. Hotel: Newly renovated without losing historic charm. Our room had crown molding, subway tile and period correct mirrors. Bed was comfortable and room was very clean. Very little traffic noise for a downtown location. Only opportunity was the amount of light in the...

This hotel is a place I'd love to go back and spend more time. There are a few really significant perks. 1. it's a Hilton hotel, so you can get your HIlton points, and you can check in on the HIlton app and use it as your room key. You can even choose your room before you check in in...

Overall, decent hotel from the room perspective. We arrived a few minutes before 3:00, and had to wait as the room was not ready yet. Luckily we rechecked at the front desk around 3:30, as the room was available by that time. Someone should have let us know rather than us check. Having stayed in hotels of this caliber before,...

The recent renovations were beautiful and our room was extremely nice and affordable. We loved the old fashioned elevators and the way they incorporated the vintage elements of the hotel. The hotel has a complimentary shuttle which we used instead of an uber on several occasions to get around KC, which we really loved and had not anticipated. The doors...

Overall, I think it was an average hotel - there were some pros, some cons. Pros: They've clearly done a ton of renovation, but kept the old school charm (personally, I love the decor). The staff was very friendly, especially the front desk. Room was clean and efficiently designed for a small-ish room. Elevators were fast (not always the case...

Upon arrival the first thing I noticed is that the room had barely been serviced. In fact, the crew had a sticky note (I guess for themselves) on the wall that said "King sheets - holes" which caught my attention. I looked at the sheets on the bed and there was no fitted sheet on the bed, only a flat...

I apologize for your experience, from what it sounds like your room was not ready for a guest, and you shouldn't have been given that room in the first place.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
A Boutique Hotel that's Both Historic and hip. Listed on the National Register of Historic Places and Kansas City’s most historic hotel, completed a $20 million gut renovation at the end of 2016. The transformation included every aspect of the building to bring the hotel back to its original 1930's elegance, with modern amenities while elevating the food and beverage offerings, comfort, amenities, and modern details. Dine in Tavernonna Italian Kitchen, get coffee at Kilo Charlie, and come in for drinks at our speakeasy, P.S. Can a hotel feel grand and yet intimate at the same time? Hip but never stuffy? That's the allure of Hotel Phillips, a historic gem in the heart of Kansas City's business, entertainment and arts district.
