Tried a few hotels in Kansas City as I travel there on business regularly. Happy to have found the Ambassador. Friendly, helpful staff, clean and quiet rooms, convenient location, quick check in/out, fair price and a decent restaurant. What more can you ask?

Truly great hotel. Really appreciated the car service and the driver, I think his name was Bert, was phenomenal - nothing was too much trouble and he gave me some great pointers. Very clean and it's clear that a lot of attention went into this place when it opened.

Lovely hotel from the beginning to the end! The interior design is impeccable, there were fresh, warm chocolate-chip cookies & punch at check-in, the service from all of the staff is immaculate, & we were set up to enjoy ourselves, no worries!! Staying here for our 10th anniversary, we purchased the romance package--best.deal.hotel.deal.ever. We were upgraded to an executive king... More

The Ambassador hotel is a wonderful place to stay. The rooms are beautifully decorated as is the rest of the hotel. Parking for the hotel ($18/night) is conveniently located immediately adjacent to the hotel. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Also, there isn't too much noise coming from Power and Light. I only have two complaints -- The hallway... More

Our overnight stay at the Ambassador Hotel exceeded our expectations. We loved the sophisticated, modern style of the hotel. We appreciated the intimate boutique size as opposed to large, impersonal hotel chains. The doorman and front desk staff were friendly and professional. We were upgraded to a corner suite in the back of the hotel (we'd requested a quiet room)... More

I stay at the Ambassador on business, and have always enjoyed the experience. Service is excellent, and the complimentary car service for short distances is very helpful. Complimentary water in immaculate guest rooms is something I always appreciate. The food and bar area are well designed, and offer great choices.
