We stayed here for the first time in 2014 so we got a great repeat visitor rate, which is worth the phone call! The location is walking distance to Westport and The Country Club Plaza. What we loved the last time was the evening happy hour and the breakfast, but this time that was a little disappointing. We were there... More

The 816 Hotel is in a great location in Westport. You can walk to numerous restaurants and bars. It is also close to the Country Club Plaza and Crown Center Area. The staff was courteous and professional and the evening happy hour is a nice feature. The room was spacious and clean but could use some updating. For example the... More

I stayed at the 816 hotel last weekend and could not have been more delighted. The front desk people were ridiculously helpful, the location was unbeatable and the price was so reasonable. Rooms were lovely and clean.

Lovely place, great location! We went to a concert in the area, they were very helpful with parking info and directions. Driving at night is difficult , but we found it easily! Our stay was great and will go back.

I enjoyed nearly everything about this hotel and will most definitely stay there again on my next visit. It may be just a wee bit pricey for no more amenities than you receive, but, then again, it is within walking distance of the night life so I guess that'd make it worth it were I a partier.

The hotel was very nice. I really enjoyed the wallpaper of Kansas City and the artwork of Kansas City in the rooms. The location is right in the heart of Westport, so while convenient, is definately noisey at night. The continental breakfast with omlette bar was very good! There is no microwave or small fridge in the room. However, I... More

We got a great deal on the 816 and it was in a prime location. It is within biking distance of country club center, and it is within walking distance of multiple restaurants and shops. Also they have a shuttle that will take you within a certain limit of the city so if it's cold or rainy you can always... More

I'll start with great: breakfast was fantastic--seriously, give the cook a raise!--and the cocktails were a nice touch. The hotel manager, with a little prompting, fixed an issue with pricing, though I had to do some of the leg work to get us there. The hotel's shuttle service was a nice touch as well, and the guy who drove us... More

Very nice hotel. No complaints other than shower head and toilet being really low! Husband is 6' 3" so showering was difficult for him. The shuttle was much appreciated and the driver was very friendly and informative. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

Hello, Tbergma! Thank you so much for the kind words and taking time to do a review. My only advice is that your next husband be shorter (just kidding!!!!). ;-) We are planning a renovation of all rooms and all will get brand-new bathrooms, which should help your husband. We do appreciate your feedback on things like that! Be sure... More

We stayed June 5 to celebrate our anniversary. Stan was very helpful and went out of his to get us a themed room. We stayed in the American Royal room which was very clean and comfortable. We will definitely be back. Thanks again for a pleasant night Kevin Uhlmann
