This was by far the best hotel experience I've ever had. One pleasant surprise after another. We were in town for a concert at the Uptown Theatre. We stayed in the Uptown Theater themed room which was really cool. The package not only included 2 tickets to the show but also gave us access through the VIP entrance so we didn't even have to wait in line. Thanks to this access we were easily able to get to the front row of this General Admission event and were front and center for the entire concert.
The staff at the hotel was beyond excellent. From the girl I spoke to on the phone to make arrangements to the receptionist to the bartender who served us our free drink during cocktail hour and both of the gentlemen who drove the free shuttle for. Everyone was incredibly helpful and friendly.
You can't ask for a better location. Right in the heart of Wesport (the place to be for nightlife and music scene) and within shuttle distance to all the cool stuff KC has to offer. The Power & Light District, the Fountain District, Crown Plaza are all just a free shuttle ride away
Overall my trip to Kansas City was one of the most enjoyable vacations I have ever taken. The city itself was amazing and the concert and venue we were there to see were both everything we could have hoped for, but the whole experience was tied together and made so much more enjoyable by the folks at the 816 Hotel and I can assure you that anytime I visit KC in the future this will be the only place I stay.
