Quick stay in Kansas City really. We got here late because we spent most of the day in Saint Louis.
We made a quick stop at the Ameristar Casino and of course lost a few more dollars but not too much, I actually made up most of it at the Black Jack table. We then headed to the Hotel Phillips. For being considered a four star hotel, this …
... dinner. Our server, was efficient but definitely not on the warm and fuzzy side. I asked for a house cabernet (all four choices ranged from $11-14) and she ended up bringing me one that was not on the list and cost $17. I didn't think that was very nice.
But I don't want to dwell on that because we loved the ...
... distance so he suggested their buffet. It was $14 pp and included everything you could imagine. All was great experience except the attitude of the omelet maker who was sure to tell Bryan and I both that he couldn't wait to be done work at 1:00 p.m. oh well.
After breakfast, we rode over to the Union Station, which is the train station in town and has a grandiose feel and architecture similar to our own(smaller ...
... We ended up getting "standing room only tickets". It was fun to walk around the stadium and check it out. The Hall of Fame area was interesting. We learned that the Athletics went there after they left Philly for a stint before heading out to California. THe Royals are a young organization in the world of baseball..only being around since 1969.
Tomorrow we will be touring Kansas City. Good night. ...
... She is buried next to her daughter, Jeff's Aunt Maxine. It was bittersweet. The rest of the day was uneventful except that Jeff had a "first" today. We listened to an audio book all the way from Salina, Missouri to Denver, Colorado (about 7 hours) where we are spending the night. And he didn't complain once, but I can't be sure ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Hotel Phillips Kansas City
Friends of mine had their wedding reception there, so many of us booked rooms there. Beautiful and elegant Hotel. I booked my room on EZTrip, very easy to use.
We had a lovely weekend stay at the Hotel Phillips. The staff was wonderful, as was the room. The hotel has been beautifully restored. Keep in mind that we were without a car (but enjoy walking) when reading this review.
We stayed at the Hotel Phillips two years ago (I would have posted a review sooner had I known it was available). We loved the looks of the hotel and the rooms and got really good rates off of Travelocity. We stayed there with a group consisting of five couples. We make annual spring trips together but will NEVER stay at this hotel again!! On the Saturday morning of our stay, someone got into 2 of our 5 rooms and stole a purse and a total of $400 from two of the couples.
First-Rate Hotel, Absolutely Outstanding
I stayed at the Hotel Phillips for two nights for business, and the hotel was beautiful. Like others have said, the beds are amazingly comfortable, and the room service was very good - some of the best carrot cake I've ever had! The staff and service were excellent. I would stay here again without a doubt if I return to KC.
Hotel Phillips Was First Class!
I had my first stay at Hotel Phillips this past weekend, and it won't be my last! This hotel was first class all the way! There was valet service when I pulled up out front, top of the line toiletry products in the bathroom, and one of the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever slept in. All of their staff was extremely helpful and friendly. I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, as it was charming, clean, and classy!
Great downtown hotel
Outstanding if you get the bigger rooms. Very comfortable beds, beautifully appointed with old hotel charm. Good food in the 12th & Baltimore restaurant. A great alternative to the other downtown hotels, but not close to the Crown Center.
Phillips hotel is a stand out business. I have stayed at many over night business and not one has even matched the Phillips. I absolutely love the architectural features in the building. Every room I have stayed in is crowned with thick, detailed molding. The bathroom faucets, shampoo brands, lotion....everything is just perfect. I am not a high rater on much unless it is out of this world. Right down to the fresh flowers on the room service try, the Phillips just can't be beat.
They will not fail. Oh...best beds ever.
What a beautiful old hotel. It has been restored magnificently. We sateye don the 15th floor and the view is amazing.
Over-rated, noisy, in a dangerous area, narrow rooms.
I booked this hotel to be close to the Crown Center area. If was futher out more than I thought, can not park your car in the street becuase the area is unsafe. You have to use vallet parking $13 a night, it takes the attendent minimum 10-15 minutes to get your car. Wiered noises during the night!. Air-conditioner/heater shutoff by itself in the middle of the night. Water pressure was not good to clean my razor!. They have a shuttle to the Crown Center but it is $10 per person. If you ask for a pull-out couch, will cost you $15 more per night. Positive: nice entrance, free newpaper. Cheap, , paid $50/ night. compfertable bed. You get what you pay for. Would never go back there again!
