this is the 3rd time we have stayed here so we get a repeat guest rate. It is so close to being the perfect little boutique hotel: great location, happy hour, hot breakfast, free shuttle service which is great - even had the same driver this time as a few months ago. But they are in a very long remodel...

Thank you so much for choosing us again! Yes, by next August all should be done! The room you were in did have the new shower, and the hotel as a whole is waiting on the delivery of the new bathroom vanities and lighting! We just didn't want guests to miss out on those new showers! And you are right,...

We love staying at the 816 hotel! The location is great and the staff is incredibly kind and helpful! Kenny was our driver and he did a great job and was very accommodating. Amanda at the front-desk and fill-in bartender did everything she could to make our stay wonderful. The staff, location, shuttle, breakfast and drinks make this hotel a...

They were in the process of renovating rooms - we stayed September 2016 and attended concert at Crossroads. The hotel is different than "normal hotels". They have themed rooms. We stayed in a reg room with king bed and couch. Good sized room, small bathroom with very little counter space, bad lighting, great water pressure in shower/tub combo. The renovated...

Room and service were great. Very cool rustic bar stools and table in room. Old school Kelly's signage was nice too. The history in the halls and lobby are fun to look at and learn a bit of KC history.

So great to read about your stay! Kelly's Westport Inn resides in the oldest building in Kansas City, Missouri! The Kelly's themed room that you stayed in has a piece of the original bar in it!

A clean and comfortable room with super friendly staff. While the hotel was filled to the max, all the staff still managed to greet us with a smile and a friendly hello. We took the free shuttle to enjoy the Plaza lighting celebration and the young man driving couldn't have been nicer. The breakfast area was spotless and well stocked,...

Thank you so much for all your kind words! We love KC at Christmas time and the Plaza lights are so pretty and fun. Westport, where the hotel is, is Kansas City's oldest district, nothing plastic about it! We are currently under renovations, so things like new clocks and more coat hangers are on their way!

Hotel is in a very cool area of KC. Lots of restaurants and shops. Hotel is clean and the staff was very friendly. They are really trying to give you a good experience here.
