It is really hard to decide where to start when writing about our FANTASTIC experience at the Ambassador Hotel Kansas City. My husband booked an Executive King for the weekend and called in the reservation. He noted that this stay was a weekend getaway for my Birthday and must have said something along the lines of “we haven’t been away... More

Traveled for business, the hotel staff, quality on-site dining, car service, room size and amenities made it feel like pleasure. Fifth floor room, peaceful and as quiet as a bank vault. Within this city, the location is fine - it is Kansas City after all.

It was my birthday, and while I am from the Kansas City area, I do not live particularly close to downtown and I wanted to indulge a bit. So, I decided that reserving a hotel room was the best option. When I did a search, the Ambassador really stood out. Everything looked high end and luxurious and they were offering... More

My boyfriend and I decided to do a staycation and get a room at the ambassador for one evening. What a great choice! Not only was it very well taken care of, the staff went above and beyond. I want to say a special thanks to Donna Marie and Ellen for being particularly fantastic. They made us feel so welcome,... More

Definitely the best hotel in KC, best I have stayed at within the US as well. There were a couple of NFL players staying there too. It definitely makes the cut! Gorgeous lobby, amazing rooms, soft robes, in-room massage, wonderful dining available. This is definitely going to be where we stay for special nights out on the town.

We were not traveling to family this christmas and decided at the last minute to head to Kansas City to have a long weekend. We arrived Christmas Eve, and the hotel was beautiful, decorated, warm and inviting. We were treated like king/queens and our dog jolly was received like a royal guest. Every aspect of how we were treated, how... More

We arrived midnight and was given a red carper service. Heathar helped and consistently asked us if we needed help - from finding food to helping us with our pets. Kudos to the management team! Your hotel is not just fancy outside. It also has a heart!

The hotel itself is a well appointed boutique... and that makes it special. The main experience is the staff and the service. Both are impeccable and I could run on with the superlatives. There are many places to eat within 5 miles of the hotel and in our opinion the food at the Reserve is one of the best. Breakfast... More

Can't say enough great things about this hotel and staff. We had dined at the Ambassador hotel restaurant (The Reserve) in the past, but always wondered what it would be like to stay at the hotel. Needless to say, we were not disappointed. The room was much larger than expected. Very clean. The location is perfect for attending events at... More
