We have a wonderful time. Very comfy and keep us close to the elevator for pur older family members comfort. Very helpful and friendly staff from the front desk to the buffet staff. Yummy food and gorgeous decor. Wish I lived closer to come back for the spa. Will stop again if I am nearby.

The garden alone is a reason to stay at this little hotel. A beautiful oasis of glorious flowers and birdsong.
So peaceful and quiet, one hesitates to stay inside.
The surrounding area is a historic residential district, the Harry S.Truman home just across the street, perfect for morning and evening walks. The houses are worth photographing and the shaded walks keep you walking "just a little farther". If you love to walk it is not too far to the Truman Museum. A great way to spend the day.
Rooms are clean and spacious and lounges are comfortable. The breakfast is perfect, enough variety for everyone. And the hosts are lovely, friendly people.
We loved it! As former Independence residents we had not had the opportunity to visit The Higher Ground until now. It was so good to be "home"! And...we will be back.

WE really enjoyed our stay at this lovely hotel in KC, MO. IT's new and clean and perfectly decorated in modern designs. The wait staff (Sharon) in the restaurant on top of the hotel and Cinthia, Juaniz and Cesar at the European breakfast were fantastic.
We loved it and can't wait to go back for another stay.

Our first visit to KC and we had a wonderful time. Most of it due to the location and staff of 816. Our room was a little rough around the edges (toilet paper holder fell off the wall, our last day/night there our room was not cleaned etc...) but for the most part because of all the other great things about this hotel, we were able to overlook the small inconveniences.
