KANSAS CITY, MISSOURI PROPERTY EST. 1926 • NATIONAL REGISTER OF HISTORIC PLACES The stunning Hilton President hotel was built as one of the finest hotels in the country. Over the years, the Kansas City population left downtown as well as the economic engine keeping downtown operational. The President sat empty and abandoned for nearly 35 years, until visionary developer Ron Jury purchased the hotel and spent $45 million to renovate the hotel. The President has been restored to its original look and feel reminiscent of a 1930s and 1940s era grand hotel. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places, a tour around the hotel immerses guests in the sights and sounds of a bygone era. The hotel served as the headquarters for the 1928 Republican National Convention, which nominated Herbert Hoover for president.
