Good hotelPosted Apr 22, 2015
Pros: The staff is friendly and helpful. Their 816 coffee is wonderfully robust without being bitter. And its free all day.
Cons: For the money, I thought it was a good value. I can't think of anything I didn't like.
Location: It's in Westport, and there are lots of restuarants and bars within walking distance. Its also an easy drive to Crown Center.
I stayed at this hotel for five days, and liked the character of old Kansas City it brings to a modern hotel. The staff is friendly and accommodating, the free breakfast is great, with fresh fruit and an omelet made to your order. The evening managers cocktail hour is nice as well. I walked a block to a great restuarant down the street. There are many others within walking distance as well. I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a different experience than your typical mid-priced chain hotel.

Very cool KC experiencePosted Apr 1, 2015
Pros: Staff and decorations!
Cons: Make sure every room has a minifridge!
Location: Westport is within walking distance; close to anything in downtown KC
Themed room really give you the KC experience. Regular rooms were very nice, with great amenities and very clean. The hotel is walking distance from westport, so worth the extra couple bucks you'd spend on a taxi staying anywhere else. My only complaint was the the lack of mini-fridge in my room-- I'm sure I would have been provided one if I asked, though! The staff was very friendly, helpful, and professional!

Nice stop for girls weekendPosted Mar 25, 2015
Pros: Pleasant staff when checking in
Cons: Bathroom lighting
First time staying at 816 hotel, nice and clean and the hotel staff when checking in was wonderful. Very pleasant and helpful! The room was great outside of the horrible lighting in the bathroom:( We did take the Hotel shuttle which was great but they never came back to pick us up to take us back to the hotel at the end of the night- and then when we called, argued with us about whether or not the driver showed up. That wasn't fun:( Other than that would totally stay there again!

Tired facility but good valuePosted Mar 10, 2015
Pros: Treadmill in room. Location and price good.
Cons: update carpet, bathrooms ,etc.
Location: Many bars, restaurants within blocks and within walking distance of the Plaza with more restaurants and stores.
I had a "business king" which surprisingly enough came with a treadmill in the room. I was surprised but it sure came in handy. Place is definitely old and needs updating but given price and location I was happy. I thought, contrary to some other reviewers, that the breakfast was fine: cereal, bread products,omlette stand. They had a reception on Thursday night with appetizers that were good and could have been dinner. I used "Orderin" for order out one night (menu is in room). Pizza was good although I'd recommend Minsky's instead (they also deliver). I did not have trouble parking but I was in by 7 every night. If you want to rent a car I recommend Enterpise on Main street. They will pick you up and take you back. Price way better than renting at airport.

Great weekend getawayPosted Mar 2, 2015
Pros: Shuttle and happy hour
Location: Boulevard Brewery tour Julep's
My husband and I stayed here with another couple for a weekend getaway. We had a great time! We started with happy hour at the bar (5-7 p.m.), then took the hotel shuttle, which is essentially a free cab service, to the Plaza for dinner. No worries about drinking and driving! The next morning we tried the complimentary breakfast bar...it left a lot to be desired, but there was a fantastic French bakery across the street that we tried the next morning. Afterward the hotel shuttle dropped us off at Boulevard Brewery facility for a tour, but we got stranded there, as the hotel cancelled shuttle service owing to snow. That was a tad annoying, but we took a cab back for less than $10. Overall we had a great stay. Would definitely recommend it!
