4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

My stay started badly. I arrived late, about 0200 in the morning. It was very had to find the entrance to hotel parking. The gate was black and no lights. Once I was in the gloomy, badly lit parking lot there were no signs telling how to find the door to the hotel. Eventually I found the unsigned, unlit gate.... More

We had an amazing stay at the Ambassador a few weeks ago for a friends wedding. The hotel overall was superb, the rooms were spacious and the food and drink was excellent but the staff was what stood out the most. In particular a front desk woman named Stacie. There was a man in front of my girlfriend and I... More

I stayed for 3 nights recently and chose this property in part because of the location to Crown Center (without actually being in Crown Center) allowed for a quick (free) shuttle ride within a 5 mile radius. This was a great service and allowed me extreme flexibility for the conference I was attending and related dinners etc. All of the... More

This hotel is very historic and unique. The building and all of the furnishings are absolutely beautiful. The service was impeccable; from the moment we walked in the door, there were friendly faces ready to help with anything we needed. The car service was convenient and useful when we went to dinner.

This hotel is top notch. The bellman was a little slow at first, but the atmosphere and front desk attendants made up for it! The decor is so cool and a great compliment to the historical architecture. Our room had plenty of space and the amenities were to our liking. As a couple, we will be back. Side note....this hotel...

We stayed at the Ambassador Hotel for our daughter's wedding. Our party had 11 rooms total. The building is a 1920s era bank that has been rehabbed into a hotel. They were able to maintain the architectural details. One of the rooms actually has a fireplace in it as it was the former bank president's office! It is a boutique... More
