Love this hotel! We stayed at the Ambassador for a last minute get away to celebrate our anniversary, and we couldn't have been more thrilled with our selection! Upon learning it was our anniversary, the hotel staff proceeded to spoil us rotten. Thank you Ellen and Michael! A big thanks also to the Concierge who made a great dinner suggestion... More

The Ambassador is an absolute gem of a hotel. I was positively impressed by the nightly rate (includes free wifi), furnishings, size of the room, quality of the bathroom fixtures, and the service that I received during my brief stay. Also, I have NEVER seen a hotel room so clean. The furniture is lacquered black wood, and there was not... More

This cozy boutique hotel was just perfect. It was really quiet and elegant. I love historic Kansas City architecture, and this building has been restored beautifully. I don't know what else to say that hasn't been said in other reviews- every aspect of our stay was wonderful.

We were looking for an upscale hotel that was modern and fairly new. The Ambassador check all the boxes on our wish list. The staff was highly professional, very accommodating, and understood the meaning of giving great service. Our check-in experience was quick and easy. We were a little confused as to where we were supposed to park to check... More

Everyone was super friendly and professional. The hotel was beautiful and clean as a whistle. We only had 2 issues. The first issue was the parking, you had to park in the back and walk all the way around to the front, and then they charged us $18 a night to park there! I would have parked in the garage... More

The GREAT staff at the Ambassador (Linda, Paul, and Chef Shawn) -- helped my then-fiance and I put together an intimate (30-ish guests) wedding the weekend of October 4, 2014. We took over the restaurant area for the wedding/reception, and put our out-of-townerss up in this stellar hotel. The staff did a great job planning for what could be anticipated,... More

HAHA, well I will first admit just how picky we are when it comes to hotels... The Ambassador did not disappoint! Our room was beautiful, clean, and had an oversized fire place (not functional but really pretty! I lit a candle inside!) The hotel is a great location, loved lobby bar and the driver Bert is just over the top... More

I booked his hotel primarily due to the excellent Tripadvisor reviews. We stayed three nights in late September and were highly pleased with this boutique hotel. The room was spacious, nicely decorated and clean. All hotel staff we encountered were very pleasant and customer service oriented. We had two meals at the restaurant and both were excellent. Great location too... More

The Ambassador is a gorgeous hotel centrally located in downtown Kansas City, MO, within walking distance of the Power & Light District. The rooms were extremely spacious and immaculate. There were two vanities in the bathroom which was a big plus. Shuk, the hotel manager, was extremely accommodating and showed the utmost professionalism at all times. Everyone working there was...
