We stayed in The Metro Room. It was really neat with all the bus decor. Our son had fun trying to put money in the bus fare machine. It was very clean and the entire staff was very friendly. The omelets were awesome and we enjoyed our free drinks at happy hour. I only had 2 problems. #1: when I... More

We stayed here for a KC wedding and was hesitant due to some of the Google reviews and also because I'm picky about hotels. This was a great hotel for the price. It was clean, well maintained in a great location with various restaurants and stores within walking distance and very friendly staff. We had one small issue with one... More

Whether you book the TWA Airlines room or the World War 1 room, you can learn even more. Just ask for the repeat guest rate when... More

We had an unexpected stay in KC and were near the Plaza area. Donald did an amazing job getting us a great room at an affordable rate. It is a true Kansas City hotel with themed rooms and decor through the building. It is very different from the chain hotels we stay at in other cities. We loved the complementary... More

Westport is my favorite area of Kansas City and 816 puts you in the middle of it! It's an eclectic space to stay. The room are fun and the lobby is friendly. Cocktail hour introduces you to a fun array of people and the location is perfectly next to Westport Flee Market boasting the best burgers in town. The continental... More

I wrote a bad review a couple of things I was not happy with when I arrived. The parking can be bad at times it shares the spots with a popular restaurant. The double beds are not comfortable but there are other choices. The rooms are very clean and spacious. The employees friendly. The complimentary breakfast with omelette bar very... More

Had to be in KC for a volleyball tournament and this hotel was on the approved list to stay at. It was a little ways to the venue, but they provided free shuttle service which was a huge perk!
