Here's some interesting history on the famed hotel:
The Hotel President was constructed during the same construction boom that brought Kansas City many other great structures, including the nearby Mainstreet Theater, Midland Theatre, and Kansas City Power and Light Building. The hotel was completed in 1926. In 1928, it served as the headquarters for the 1928 Republican National Convention, which nominated Herbert Hoover for president. The hotel's Drum Room lounge attracted entertainers from across the country, including Frank Sinatra, Benny Goodman, and Marilyn Maye. The Hotel President was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1983. The hotel closed its doors in 1980, and it eventually underwent a massive restoration/renovation led by developers H. Drake Leddy and Ron Jury, reopening in 2005 as the Hilton President Hotel. The Hilton President Hotel is managed by Presidian Destinations of San Antonio, Texas. The Hilton President was awarded the AAA Four Diamond award in June 2009. The hotel General Manager is Philip Strnad.
