The hotel offers full-service dining and room service, and is considered one of the premier hotels in Kansas City.

Hotel Phillips’ commitment to the local arts and culture scene is longstanding. In addition to three free weekly performances from local jazz musicians, the hotel also hosts an artist-in-residence program. The chosen artist has the chance to display his or her works in the hotel studio, restaurant and throughout the hotel. The concierge and staff are also happy to give recommendations on local art galleries within walking distance from the hotel.

Renovations of the hotel will include a repositioning of the historic property as the go-to lifestyle and locally-driven hotel in the market. New food and beverage options as well as creative programming will be revealed in the coming months.
