Verified Reviews of 816 Hotel #kc Experience

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Hidden Jewel In Westport."
Overall Score4.0/ 5
Completely remodeled. Nestled in the middle of Westport community, walking distance from dozens of shops and restaurants. Short distance from Crown Plaza. Clean. Cool deco with old time photos of Kansas City. Staff is excellent and fun. We come here regularly now.

"Not so good, overall!"
Overall Score3.0/ 5
The staff was friendly, but almost all were new and not very well informed. The room was clean, but with lots of quirks: sliding door of bathroom kept coming off bottom hinge which meant the door wouldn't close; the hot/cold water was reversed in shower and sink, which would have been fine if someone told me ahead of time instead I waited for it to 'warm up', panicked thinking there was no hot water for a shower, had to call the front desk and ended up running very late as a result; a family member had their smoke alarm go off in the middle of the night because the heater in their room started smoking. All in all, I wouldn't go there again, I regret having my friends/family stay there especially given how much it cost.
