I called to book for a wedding and they wanted me to pay more than what it cost to book their room online. They told me to book their room online which I did despite the "Book By Phone: We Will Beat Any Internet Rate You Can Find! 816-931-1000" Apparently they can't match their own internet rate! When I spoke... More

We have stayed at this hotel when it was a holiday inn express many times. We were sad to see it go. That is, until we stayed there this weekend with the updated surroundings and staff. The location is excellent. The manager's reception was great - bartenders willing to help you select fun new drinks! Rooms very quiet. We missed... More

If you are looking for a fun themed-room, learning more about KC history, and can tolerate an older hotel, then 816 is for you. There are 20 KC-themed hotel rooms, decorated by an association, society or museum (like the TWA room or the WWI museum room). Other rooms are regular hotel rooms with KC murals for wallpaper. The toiletries are... More

Stayed here for a few nights to attend the Kansas film festival. Can't praise this hotel enough. Amazingly friendly and funny staff, great breakfast, comfortable room etc. If I ever come back to Kansas heading here. Thanks for a fantastic stay and hope to be back one day.

Ok hotel, but I had 2 issues that has caused me not to re-book again. First, they do a hard up-sell when you call them. All over the web, they say to "call in and you will get a better rate than online", however they are really just trying to hard up-sell you to the more expensive rooms. Second, I... More

We definitely won't stay here again, however, the front desk staff were very nice. The happy hour was so crowded that we had to wait in line for 15 minutes or so to get a drink and the snacks were gone when we got there. The fan in our room was very noisy and the room was very hot and... More

We stay in KC every couple of months. For our last visit, 11/7/14, most of the hotels in the areas I wanted to be were priced quite high. My son had pointed out the 816 last time we were down and said he had heard good things. Although it did not have the corporate rate we were looking for, the... More

We stayed at the 816 for 10 days during October and it was a good experience. Location is a plus - within walking distance of lots of food and nightlife and within a quick drive to the plaza, Kemper arena and downtown KC so we loved the convenience. Hotel was clean, staff was friendly and breakfast was good. Parking was... More
