Clean and Classy HotelWe got upgraded for free when we told the staff that we'd just been married. We got a very nice corner room and hand a fantastic view of Kansas City. The hotel is very jazzy and clean, but welcoming. Thank you Hotel Phillips for kicking off our honeymoon.

The hotel is near several restaurants. We had a good visit to Hotel 816, we stayed in the Kansas Star room. It had a king size bed, a fridge and a microwave. They had a reception that included a free drink that was nice. They serve breakfast, they make omelets. My omelet was good. The dining area was crowded and it was difficult to maneuver ...

Unique hotel close to the Truman HomeThe hotel is a repurposed building, more like a B&B, with nicely furnished rooms. It is right across the street from the Truman Home, in the middle of the Historic Truman District, an easy walk or drive to the Truman Library and other sites in the area. There are newer, fancier hotels out on the ...

Great Plaza location.We had a problem with getting our room the first night and they more than made up for it. They went the extra mile to make sure we were satisfied.
