The 816 has a lot going for it. They've turned a drab Holiday Inn Express into a pretty stylish place with groovy lobby furnishings and wall murals. The 816 is currently the only hotel in Westport proper, and by far the most reasonably priced hotel within walking distance of the Plaza. Their happy hour is great, as are the made-to-order omelets in the morning. The staff is top notch (especially Sophia at the front desk, who totally rocks) and the prepaid online rate for our room with two beds was only $111. However, I agree with the previous reviewers that the "updating" has a long way to go. We had a standard room without a theme, and although the beds were comfortable, the carpeting and bathroom were a little dingy. Also, Holiday Inn Express rooms have refrigerators so why didn't they just leave them in? Oh well, we will definitely stay here again anyway because the location, value, and service can't be beat!
