Beautiful historic hotel in a great location in downtown Kansas City. While their gym is small, they provided access to an awesome gym a couple blocks away. They also provided a complimentary shuttle to take you around the city. Everything else was really nicely done, service was great, etc. The only small issue I had was in relation to their...

I cannot say enough wonderful things about The Ambassador Hotel Kansas City! I will start by saying that I openly admit to being a "high maintenance" guest with extremely high expectations for service, style, cleanliness, and attention to detail. The Ambassador Hotel and their entire team exceeded my expectations. Their eagerness to ensure that your stay is impeccable is out...

I couldn't ask for more from this hotel. For around $240 a night including self-parking, I think I got a good value out of the hotel. I think the rate helps keep some noisy guests away. If I had to describe this hotel with three words, they would be: Clean, Comfortable and Soft. The hotel is located within couple blocks...

Everything at the Ambassador was great! Accommodating front desk staff were very friendly. My husband asked the parking valet to park our new truck where it wouldn't get a door ding, and later from our room, we could see it parked clear off to one end of the parking area. Thanks guys! The building is beautiful and the rooms are...

We recently stayed in this hotel and it was in need of repair. Our room had a roof leak, smelled like mold or mildew. The bathroom dressing area, but the actual commode and shower/tub was tiny. Not built for larger people. Good Location. Close to restaurants, just time to do some repair to the physical structure. Linens, etc were very...

I recently stayed at The Ambassador when I was traveling for work. I don't do much business travel, so this felt like a rare treat to me, and I was glad to spend it at The Ambassador.
