We have stayed at this hotel a couple of times this month for different reasons and have found the staff very accommodating and friendly. They are getting ready for a major renovation to upgrade this hotel as it shows some wear. Rooms clean and the murals and pictures on the walls are historical Kansas City. This property is close to... More

The room was pretty nice. Wasn't able to catch a shuttle because we didn't know about the sign-up sheet. Breakfast was fruit and an omelet bar. Wasn't the best but not the worse. Would def stay again.

The first time I stayed here they had just had their pipes repaired so when we turned the tub on sediment was coming out. Someone from the front desk came up right away and fixed the issue. The second stay included a shuttle to the Starlight Theater. We boarded quickly and easily and got back safely. This is a huge... More

It's been nicely remodeled, so the fact that it's an older hotel is not a stand out. It is clean & the staff was very nice. We very much enjoyed our stay. The parking is a little strange in the fact that they share their parking lot with the restaurant next door, so it's hard to find a spot when... More

My wife and I have stayed at other hotels near UMKC, but the Country Club Plaza area can be rather expensive. The 816 Hotel is within 2.5 miles of the school and offers some nice perks (2 free drinks during the Manager's reception from 5:00 - 7:00 PM, omelettes made to order during the free breakfast, packages that give you...

Hello, Donald! Thank you so much for the wonderful review -- you just hit all our high points. Please come back and let us shuttle you around town.

My wife and I stayed here for a 4 night stay, with our Kansas City visit being a mix of business and a get-away. The hotel rooms are undergoing a progressive upgrade which will definitely give them a fresher look. The exterior is also currently getting a facelift as well. Pre-upgrade rooms are certainly adequate, but the make-over will no... More

Hello, Sean! Well, that lovely review just made my day! I appreciate so much your compliments to our staff, whom I also adore.

My mother and I stayed here the night before I had surgery at KU Medical Center. It was super quiet and clean. Molly made sure we had a quiet room to relax before surgery.

I was trying to find a hotel that was close to the downtown area without having to pay the high prices of hotels in the city. I found this one, I was unsure of staying here due to some of the reviews. I actually liked the hotel, it was close to shopping and the downtown/site seeing areas. I liked the... More

I wanted to surprise my husband with a getaway weekend for our anniversary. I made my reservation 4 weeks prior to my visit, but my room was double-booked.

I'm sorry you had that experience, Katherine. Because our themed rooms are all one-of-a-kind, occasionally we get two requests for the same date, but can accommodate only one. You definitely should have been contacted about that in advance, though. More

I was so impressed the moment I walked in! The lobby was clean and decorated nicely. Turns out our room had been taken, so the amazing Amanda at the front desk helped us pick out our themed room (which we had not planned on staying in an room without a theme).
