Learn our story courtesy of the KC Star

816 Hotel #KCexperience is Kansas City's only hotel dedicated to the past and present of the “Paris of the Plains.” The history of KC is rich, and our hotel lends itself to both - telling the story of Kansas City while offering a memorable experience through exemplary customer service.

Our Select Service hotel offers spacious rooms decorated with archival photos of Kansas City's history, along with top-of-the-line bedding and bath towels and Tommy Bahama bath-products. Yet our specialty feature are the variety of uniquely themed rooms, each decorated and furnished by various Kansas City iconic institutions. Themed rooms share the story of Kansas City - everything from the KC Zoo to Boulevard Brewery, to the KC Mob past, to TWA and everything in between.

Location, Location, Location

816 Hotel puts you in the heart of the best amenities Kansas City has to offer. Located in Old Westport, the oldest part of the city, the area around the hotel is home to more than 150 shops, restaurants and bars. Within 90 steps of our front door are restaurants Bluestem (highest Zagat rated restaurant in KC); Pot Pie (a moderately priced local gem); and the Westport Flea Market (often voted the best cheeseburger in KC).

Five blocks to our south is the world famous Country Club Plaza, and the 816 is within 1 mile of the Uptown Theater, the Nelson Atkins Museum, the Plaza Tennis Center, the National World War 1 Museum, UMKC and Rockhurst University. Within 2 miles is the American Jazz Museum, the Negro League Baseball Museum, Crown Center and the Kauffman Center for Performing Arts. Finally, within 3 miles are the Sprint Center and the Power & Light Entertainment District.

And the best part? We offer free shuttle service to all of these attractions and everything in between. Once you check in, you can hide your car keys because you won't need them!
