The 816 is our preferred hotel for one night getaways in KC. Great Westport location, just down the street from many bars and restaurants, and across the parking lot from the Westport Flea Market Bar and Grill. We've been staying here 2-4 times a year for some time now, and are always welcomed as repeat guests. We got to the...

Hi there! Sorry we weren't able to get you in early, if we are fully booked up the night before, we try to get rooms turned around quickly but also want to make sure we are thorough! We're glad to hear you like the new showers and I agree, the color scheme is nice! It seems you hit the bar...

Recently stayed at the 816 Hotel. Was pleased that they are going through a total updating of the hotel. Stayed there a year ago and it was a great value, but was dated. This time, was excited that my room didn't have the old wallpaper all over and it even had an eliptical rider in the room. Whats nice about...

Clean, family run hotel in the midst of being renovated in the Westport section of Kansas City, MO, ~ 10 minute drive from downtown Kansas City. Free breakfast wasn't so great as the homemade omelet was very dry while the fruit was sliced so frugally that much of the rind from the cantaloupe and the honeydew melons was included! There...

What a fantastic detailed review! Thanks! The barn doors are very chic but do pose a bit of a privacy issue and we are working on a remedy for that! Safe Travels and we hope to see you again!

I stayed at 816 hotel with my daughter for her sweet 16 birthday weekend getaway, the hotel was under remodel and there was construction dust in places along with loud banging and drilling early in the morning. One of the employees there said it's been going on now close to a year. The bathroom was beautifully remodeled, beds were comfortable,...

We do apologize for the noise and dust. Our remodel started 6 months ago, and all our TV's are flat screen with cable television. I am glad to hear you enjoyed our new bathrooms, they are a vast improvement from the old ones. We are a local, independently owned hotel, doing our best to update and compete with the corporate...

When we arrived to check in, the desk clerk automatically upgraded our room, we didn't even ask for an upgrade to a themed room. While we were waiting for her to do so, she asked what brought us to the area, my husband mentioned it was my birthday. 2 days later when we were checking out she asked how my...

The hospitality of Amanda, Nakita, and Jonnell made our overnight stay so enjoyable. They were so proficient in helping us navigate the city on uber, on our own, and with the services provided by the hotel. There is nothing like friendly humor, playful service, and a free drink at happy hour. The room was very clean. We stayed in the...

First things first..Yes. This hotel is being renovated. If you are annoyed by this sort of thing, construction workers in the elevator, dust, noise, just go somewhere else! I am writing this review as someone who got an extremely low nightly rate on Priceline (express deals) I paid under $60 a night and stayed for 4 nights. For that price,...

Thank you for such a detailed review of your stay! We will take the good and the bad to heart! You certainly should have had a hair-dryer in your room and during our remodel we are working to make sure all rooms come standard with a mini-fridge. You certainly did get a great rate, but make sure to call us...

The rooms are nicely cleaned, the nightly rates are appropriate,the location is central the where much of Kansas City's action is. The room was quiet at night not letting in any of the nightlife around.

Neutrals: In spite of supposed remodel of bathroom, missing some things that would have made it more comfortable, such as larger counter space, more hooks. Wallpaper coming off.

We do apologize with the confusion about our complimentary shuttle. We have taken this to heart and are working to avoid conflicts in the future; By making it a point at time of booking to let guests know the shuttle is not a guaranteed availability. Again, I'm sorry if you felt misled. We hope you enjoyed your time in KC...
