KANSAS CITY, Mo. – Hotels, if you’ve seen one seen 'em all, right? One that’s breaking the mold in Kansas City may change your mind.

816 Hotel opened its doors for the first time on Thursday night and is already sold out for a specific reason: History.

816 Hotel takes you through what Kansas City is known for through 20 themed rooms. From Boulevard beer to KC barbecue, the Negro Leagues Museum and the Mutual Musicians Foundation, each room represents a piece of history.

The hotel's owners got help from volunteers to help create each room, giving guests from all over the country and chance to truly experience Kansas City.

“Kansas City has really rallied behind it. Let's face it, when we see our friends on the coast, we say we're from Kansas City and they're like why do you live there? That's a conversation that takes forever to have. This is way to see this is why we live here. This is fun, people have rallied behind it and it's been great,” said owner Doug Gamble.

The hotel has 108 rooms and is already sold out tonight and through the weekend. People are calling it the hotel born and raised in Kansas City.
