overall hotel very dark. lobby area and elevators very dark poorly lit. dining area also very dark. service for breakfast poor. very slow and took a long time to get coffee and never returned to see if any more coffee was requested. all that went into refurbishment service was not part of it.

Stayed here 1 night on business. Great location in downtown Kansas City between Marriott and Power & Light. Tons of restaurants within walking distance. Staff was very friendly. Completely renovated from top to bottom. Like a brand new property. WiFi was fast and free. Only downside would be the shower head/water pressure was ok but not great. Would definitely stay...

The rooms were clean and comfortable, the beds were comfy, the bathroom was lovely and the location was great for us. It was easy to get around and lots within walking distance. The internet didn't work in the rooms - we didn't...

Not worth the money nor using your Hilton honor points. Location is good and very close to bars and places to eat. However, the quality of service and the hotel food is below of what you would expect at a Hilton hotel.

Very clean hotel. Staff was friendly and helpful. The speak-easy was unique and a good environment for our group to gather and share thoughts and cocktails. Location made it easy to do business in the KC area. Hotel Shuttle was timely and reliable.

Very nice and comfortable rooms. Amazing drinks in the "secret" bar in the basement! Very fun! Most professional and pleasant staff from valet to restaurant. Tell the valet you are dining there and valet parking is free.

Last weekend I stayed at the Hotel Phillips with 4 other friends and I would recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Kansas City. First of all location of the hotel was fantastic: it was within a few minutes walking to get to the Sprint Center, Power & Light District, and also the KC Streetcar which can take you throughout downtown....

New renovations are wonderful. Quaint, historic hotel with updated rooms. Staff is extremely helpful. Walking distance to Sprint Center, restaurants, shopping, and free metro street car. Free shuttle was really nice too.

Arriving on a this past Sunday and after reviewing the reviews on this hotel previously I elected to request an upgrade to a corner room. Which I received upon arrival. The food has been good as has been the staff. The room is clean and in fact very nice. The only two complaints I have are:1. having survived a near-fatal...

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. Your experience starts with our breathtaking Art Deco lobby that made us Kansas City's most celebrated hotel in 1931. ... more   less
