I cannot say enough wonderful things about The Ambassador Hotel Kansas City! I will start by saying that I openly admit to being a "high maintenance" guest with extremely high expectations for service, style, cleanliness, and attention to detail. The Ambassador Hotel and their entire team exceeded my expectations. Their eagerness to ensure that your stay is impeccable is out... More

I couldn't ask for more from this hotel. For around $240 a night including self-parking, I think I got a good value out of the hotel. I think the rate helps keep some noisy guests away. If I had to describe this hotel with three words, they would be: Clean, Comfortable and Soft. The hotel is located within couple blocks... More

Everything at the Ambassador was great! Accommodating front desk staff were very friendly. My husband asked the parking valet to park our new truck where it wouldn't get a door ding, and later from our room, we could see it parked clear off to one end of the parking area. Thanks guys! The building is beautiful and the rooms are... More

Lovely and Modern hotel. I stayed here for work and was upgraded to a Loft suite. I had 1.5 bathrooms, two TVs, large windows, separate living room, and a very comfortable king bed.

We recently stayed in this hotel and it was in need of repair. Our room had a roof leak, smelled like mold or mildew. The bathroom dressing area, but the actual commode and shower/tub was tiny. Not built for larger people. Good Location. Close to restaurants, just time to do some repair to the physical structure. Linens, etc were very... More

I recently stayed at The Ambassador when I was traveling for work. I don't do much business travel, so this felt like a rare treat to me, and I was glad to spend it at The Ambassador. The hotel is within walking distance of Power & Light, which is not at all my favorite place to party but has plenty... More

I have been staying at the hotel since summer of 2015. I tend to visit the city monthly and call the Ambassador my home away from home. From the driver to the people behind the desk and those serving me a meal, I love that the staff remembers me and treats me as family. I can't sing the praises enough... More

I was very impressed by the Ambassador Hotel in KC. The hotel is was built over a hundred years ago, but the historic charm is complete with updated modern amenities. I'm not sure about every room, but my accommodations included a full suite, with separate living area complete with desk, couch, coffee table and TV. I did not have to... More

Stayed for two days in KC at the Ambassador Hotel, which is a Marriott property. Nice spacious room with nice furnishings and in the center of downtown. Had a small but sufficient fitness room with one treadmill, one climber, one bicycle and adjustable dumbbells...just like being at home...great meal in the restaurant, Reserve.
