Stayed in the Boulevard Room recently, room was very nicely decorated. Bathroom however needed some upgrading. Mold around the bathtub and what appeared to be water damage on walls. Otherwise this was a great place to enjoy a weekend. Staff was wonderful to deal with and immediately responded to any issues. Happy Hour drinks were a great touch and Breakfast... More

A group I belong to held a weekend long event at the hotel. Since I'm a local, I knew the hotel was new and didn't know what to expect. The hotel was awesome. Westport is the pulse of the city and has things to do both young and old. The hotel has special rooms that showcase some of the amazing... More

I stayed solo at the hotel for one night during the summer and was blown away by the customer service (thanks especially to Sophia, Claudette, and Donald!). This stay is all about experiencing Kansas City at a great price. Located in Westport, you're steps away from the thriving nightclub and restaurant scene in Kansas City. It's almost impossible to find... More

I had the pleasure of working with Donald Ray and his incredible team this past weekend at the 816 Hotel. Over the past few months the staff of the 816 Hotel were consummate professionals during the planning stages of the event. The weekend of the event proved that customer service was an essential element to what the 816 Hotel is... More

I had a great time staying here this past weekend. I was very fortunate to get one of the themed rooms. OMG . Unlike any room I have ever stayed in anywhere! And the staff were very friendly and helpful as well. I had Danielle as my housekeeper. She had us all laughing! They have breakfast every morning, including made... More

This hotel was great! It was my first time in KC, but all the staff was phenomenal! Next time I visit this hotel is my top choice, the help was very descriptive of the shuttle services offered, and very respectful.

This is a very nice hotel. From the front desk staff to the cleaning staff, everyone was super nice. Danelle went out if her way to help us. We stayed in the TWA theme room which was very cool, but all the rooms are great size and very clean. I will be back

I wish there could be more stars for service than 5! The staff from the front desk to the shuttle service driver were beyond nice. Forget about $59-$99 dollar hotels to save a buck and the $200 and up a night ritzy rooms this place is triple your dollar value. You have to get an omlet in the morning! The... More

My boyfriend and I stayed in this highly rated KC hotel for 1 night in late June. We were reasonably comfortable, but probably wouldn't stay again. Positives: Staff was friendly and efficient. Free drinks after a long drive was a nice bonus. Free parking. Bed was comfortable. Negatives: I walked approximately 3/4 mile to the nearest Starbucks on the morning... More

This hotel has ruined all future experiences for me. The customer service was so phenomenal, that I doubt I will see anything else like it in my life time (until I go back there). I wish I could remember everyone's name, but the entire staff was excellent. Steven was awesome keeping us comfortable (and fed) throughout the week of class.... More
