We really enjoyed the stay at the Ambassador and do not understand other comments about an unhelpful staff. We found everyone very helpful and friendly. The corner king room was immaculate and very spacious. The bed and linens were comfortable, and the shuttle service a plus. Would highly recommend to anyone visiting Kansas City.

I recently stayed at the Ambassador for a business trip and I was really blown away. The hotel is well-designed yet extremely comfortable (the beds are way more comfortable than the Westin Heavenly beds). The food at Reserve is fantastic (try the KC sliders and the cheesecake for sure). The service across the board was impeccable. Every member of the... More

We stayed here for two nights recently during a business conference. The staff was very friendly and helpful and the room we stayed in was gorgeous. It was a quiet property and very clean. We stayed in the Executive Room which was nicely appointed and had a lot of room in it.

I travel over 100 days a year on the road and stay in a lot of hotels, albeit mostly in Canada. My wife was with me on our trip March 29 and 30, 2014 and we stayed at the Ambassador overnight.

We stayed at this location because close to Midland theater and thought it would be a unique experience. More costly than other nearby hotels. Self parking is very close, easy check in, room very clean but not exceptional considering the price. Tried to eat breakfast in the restaurant on site but waited 10 minutes and saw no one working but... More

Large room, very cool ambience, this relatively new boutique hotel in downtown is awesome. The staff is really friendly and engaging. Burt, who drove me to The Plaza district in the hotel van was awesome. Took me by points of interest, drove me around to see multi-sided views of cool buildings. His knowledge of, and enthusiasm for, Kansas City was... More

We stayed for two nights. Didn't sleep either night. The hotel itself is beautiful. Very high end decor inside and gives the appearance of a high end hotel. However they failed to pay attention to a very important detail. The exterior noise while in your room was ridiculous. Being downtown the sirens of cops and fire trucks was non stop.... More
