    Hilton President is the best venue in KC!

    If I had to get married again, there is nowhere in KC I would rather do it than the Hilton President, time and time again! My husband and I knew we wanted a classic, elegant, and timeless wedding and the President and their Congress Ballroom were exactly what we were looking for. The ballroom was the perfect size for our 125 guests, the room (and hotel) is absolutely beautiful, and Keyli and her team made sure everything was executed perfectly. Planning from out of state, we also loved the fact that food, bar, chairs, tables, linens, dining ware, etc. are all provided in house. It made those logistics so much easier on us and we were able to relax knowing the President team is a well oiled machine in knowing exactly what to do on their home turf! Guests also commented on how great the food was and the signature drink we were able to add was a complete hit! Keyli was amazing to plan with and truly handled every detail in making sure our reception stayed on track. She answered all of my (many) emails and questions, worked with our planner behind the scenes, and was in constant communication with us in the weeks leading up to our wedding. She even made sure to keep us on track with hitting our minimums, taking that stress off us and allowing us to simply make choices to enhance our night. We loved every minute of our reception and had absolutely no anxiety going into the night knowing that Keyli and team had it covered. In our opinion, this is the best reception space in all of downtown KC and I would book here a million times over!

    Magnificent Wedding at The President

    Our daughter got married in September of 2022 and the reception was at The President. The staff, especially Keyli, was wonderful to work with and they were committed to making sure this special day met all of our expectations . The hotel takes care of so many of the details and they were wonderful partners! The evening was magical, the food and service was outstanding and the night exceeded our expectations!

    Best Bang for your Buck

    The Hilton President is a FABULOUS wedding location. We had our reception here and it was so convenient to have everything under one roof--from the food to servers, bartenders, linens, candles, getting-ready rooms, separate cocktail hour location, and a room block so guests can go right downstairs to their rooms at the end of the night. Not to mention the beautiful hotel made for the best backdrop for wedding photos.

    I was pleasantly surprised at how far each dollar went. The pricing here is comparable to other empty, industrial-style venues. Because the hotel is so fabulous already (huge chandeliers, gilded columns, stunning dance floor) I did not have to spend much money AT ALL on additional decorations, dance floor, lighting, or flowers. The beauty of the hotel speaks for itself!

    The ballroom comfortably fit 200 guests with plenty of room for a band and dance floor. The room is not too big so the band acoustics were still great. It had the feeling of intimacy.

    The wedding coordinator, Keyli, was very responsive, helpful, and proactive. She was kind and worked within my budget. The entire staff was professional and easy to work with. Dinner service was a breeze and the bartenders made it so there was hardly ever a line. A true five-star experience!

The Hilton President is a fabulous facility with a wonderful staff. A beautiful room with no need for decorations. It's all grace and class. Working with the President over the years has been a treat. They GET what the bride and groom wants. Make an effort to visit especially if you like the convenience of having close parking and a hotel room on premise. Time to party!
