This was our first time to the Ambassador even though we have made many and frequent trips to KC. Don't know how we missed this! Fantastic staff everyone smiled! The valet parking was fast and seamless. The rooms were exquisite and the view of DT KC was beautiful. Surprisingly the food was excellent, not what I was expecting. The bartenders...

My wife and traveled to Kansas City for a quick get away for the daily grind. Having never been to KC before we really enjoyed the proximity to the Power and Light District. We also took full advantage of the hotel shuttle. It will take you anywhere within 5 miles (at check-in they told us pretty much anywhere we wanted...

Our stay was a date night surprise. We were greeted at the front door by a friendly gentleman ready to help us with luggage and parking information. The front desk immediately made us feel at home. We were met with cookies and a cold drink. The hotel is a former bank,beautifully restored with a contemporary feel. We had the executive...

Friends, What's it really all about when your staying away for business? I'll tell you "Service". That's what this hotel is ALL about! Weather it's the fresh baked cookies when you return from work, the Pleasent smiles and "how may we help you" it was such a refreshing experience. Let me continue... the hotel basically has no gym, so they...

Stayed at the Ambassador during the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. The executive king room offered around 400 sq ft and felt even larger. The lobby and restaurant area were chic and service was excellent. My only (small) complaint is the lack of obvious signage out front: the hotel is very easy to miss at night. Otherwise a fabulous stay.

Our stay was excellent. Our two biggest concerns were cleanliness and pet-friendliness. We are *very* picky about our hotel rooms being clean, we even look under and behind the beds, inspecting mattresses. We were so impressed by how clean this room was!!! We are truly thankful for that. Also, our dog was welcomed and treated well. The only issue we...

My girlfriends and I stayed at this property for my birthday weekend. We booked the Loft Suite and it was incredible. The property itself is really stunning. The staff was helpful and friendly. Our room was beyond top notch. Boasting two stories, this suite is the place to stay. Wonderful living space and separate loft sleeping area upstairs with full...

Just came back from a great visit & will plan on staying here during future visits to KC! Very friendly & helpful staff. Beautiful entrance! But the rooms were what made our stay! Spacious, clean, modern & VERY comfortable. Great beds! Only suggestion for future improvements would be to put a door between the shower/toilet area & the sink area....

This hotel is in an older building with nice modern decorated rooms. Our bathroom was huge and the room was quite spacious. The hotel has a great location near the Sprint Center and the Power and Light district. You can walk to many cool bars, restaurants, the World War I museum and the arena.

Our room was well done in a modern way. With many renovations of older buildings, you have some drawbacks with plumbing or noise or something but this was not the case here. It was like a brand new place with old building charm. The hotel is small with just a few rooms. It has a great restaurant and bar. The...
