I called on a Wednesday and explained to them that my wife and I are driving 8 hours to get to Kansas City because we haven't been there and would like to experience the city. Told them we were going to stay 4 nights and the guy instantly offered me a $110 room a night. I explained that I see... More

Location cannot be beat if you want restaurants and shops in walking distance. Plaza is close by, many fun pubs along Westport. Friendly staff, continental breakfast and happy hour provided in the hotel lounge. Rooms are average, though, with the beds being overly soft and the bathroom could use better lighting. Free parking is a bonus! Overall, a great value... More

We snagged a grand opening special rate and it was a bargain. The staff is excellent, rooms are nice and comfortable. In fact we wished we would have sprung for two nights instead of moving on in our travel plans the next day. There was more we wanted to see in the area also. Now there were a few things... More

Stayed at the 816 originally because of a recommendation. I've been there twice now and it's the only hotel I'll stay at! Love the happy hour and breakfast! The room was clean and comfortable, and the bartender during happy hour was very friendly and always knows what's happening around the city and gave me a few good suggestions of what... More

The 816 was again accommodating, clean, and lovely. It's my go to in Kansas City! It's with walking distance of great food and shopping. Everyone's always friendly and flexible. If we get in exceptionally late, they're always great at keeping the check in process short and sweet so we can get to sleep.

I had a chance to stay at the 816 again while traveling through KC. I made it a point to book there after staying a few months ago. The hotel was not quite finished last time...now it seems to be in full force. The lobby bar is awesome (especially with the free cocktails) and the rooms are unlike any other... More

We purchased our room through a "Travelzoo" offer. We had to then make the reservation through the hotel. The reservation and check-in process was not well coordinated and we didn't receive all that was promised in the offer we purchased. The hotel also charged us again for the room and I had to make a couple of trips to the... More

This was a unique hotel with themed rooms. We stayed in the mob room. The staff is amazingly friendly. Each guest receives two free drinks at the hotel bar after 5pm. Only two blocks from Westport which has great food, drinks and shopping. We even got a discount at the piano bar with our hotel room key sleeve. I am... More

The staff was courteous and efficient. The location in Westport was perfect to walk to restaurants and shops. The complimentary happy hour was great. The bed was very comfy and clean. Did not request housekeeping every day - when they did clean, it could have been more thorough in the bathroom. All in all, would recommend this hotel to anyone... More

An inexpensive and interesting alternative in Westport to the chain hotels in the Country Club Plaza area of Kansas City. The non-theme rooms are basic but comfortable. The hotel offers a good free breakfast as well as two complimentary drinks at happy hour. The staff is very helpful and there is a van to take you to places in the... More
