Facts

  • This building has both state and federal historic landmark status.
  • The registration desk used now is in the new structure at the Wyandotte Street entrance. The original Muehlebach Hotel registration desk with "pigeon hole" mail boxes, "sit-down" phone booths and period lamps, was restored to meet historic preservation standards.
  • Known as "Kansas City's Hotel of Presidents", every president from Woodrow Wilson through Richard Nixon stayed in the Presidential Suite -- with heaviest activity occuring during Independence, Mo., native Harry Truman's administration between 1945-1953.
  • When the Marriott Corporation assumed control of the "original" Muehlebach in 1996, it spent two years and millions of dollars restoring it in accordance with guidelines for historic structures.
