Kansas City 816 Hotel Celebration



Worthwhile recent media blitz this week for a new Kansas City Westport contender . . .

The latest mainstream media write-ups:

816 Hotel ‘born and raised in Kansas City’ opens its doors

816 Hotel, KC-themed lodging, now open in Westport

It's a good location and so far the reviews and response have been excellent which is important given that this local biz represent a bit more hope in this town than Mayor Sly's upcoming taxpayer subsidized Downtown Convention hotel.

"...Mayor Sly's upcoming taxpayer subsidized Downtown Convention hotel."

Speaking of taxes and hotels in KC...the hotel taxes in general for this city are INSANE. Many business travelers avoid KC proper like the plague because of it.

this was such a grody ass hotel when it was "The Q".

This is probably another case where the land underneath the hotel is worth more than the 40 year old decaying ode to 70s modernism.

No, this is the old Comfort Inn, Holiday Inn Express so it adds to the odd design theme of The Q.

Something tells me that Diana Kander has some money in it, so of course Tony will cum all over himself posting about it?

It's a KC themed hotel so I'm surprised there wasn't more coverage on this blog. Make sense.

And that fact that you're trying to guess TKC's motives means that he probably has a pretty good share of mind with you. Like I said, if he really cared I think there would have been more coverage on this blog.

But then again Beecher, you are not very bright and you repeat yourself.

Dickhead, repetition works, dickhead.

Keep thinking about me. I'm more important than YOU.

You're on a blog. Neither one of you are important.

More boobs please!

Real classy looking joint the way they just slapped the new signage over the old one's sun-faded silhouette.

Looks almost as bad as the shitty Chuy's Mexican signage on the plaza.

A city of rubes.
