The Ambassador Hotel is a minimalist statement of style yet luxury. The decor is a combination of sleek art deco and appreciation for the '20s opulence. This boutique hotel salutes midwestern values but provides a cosmopolitan setting. The Ambassador should satisfy the weary business traveler or couples seeking escape from the mundane. Midwestern values are exemplified by a staff that... More

Great hotel. Great location. Great service. That sums it up really. The staff was always super courteous and friendly from the valet to the desk to guest services to the waiters in the lounge. Check-in was easy. Valet was always quick without a wait. We needed a rollaway bed for a friend for one night, it was delivered and set... More

Reading the reviews of this hotel here on Tripadvisor made me think that this hotel would be somewhat comparable to other luxury properties I've stayed at such as The Ritz Carlton, Mokara Hotel & Spa, Trump International NYC, or The St. Regis, but IT IS NOT. This hotel is a poorly and messily renovated old building. They are open in... More

We're in Kansas City ,the next stop on our road trip. We're staying at the Ambassador Hotel on Grand Blvd. It's part of the autograph collection of hotels managed by Marriott. It only has 43 rooms and is very welcoming. The lobby is warm and comfortable and the staff is very accommodating. This is our second autograph collection hotel and... More

We did not stay at the hotel, but ate at the restaurant there, The Reserve. For some reason the website would not allow me to add the restaurant by itself. We did look at some of the rooms out of curiosity and they were very nice. Now back to The Reserve. The Coq a Vin was TO- DIE- FOR. We... More

This is a beautiful hotel in a renovated bank building. My room was large and very nice, with a big bathroom. The restaurant is quite good, and the service throughout the hotel was truly first rate. I would certainly return. An added bonus: my room was priced quite well at $235 per night, an excellent value.

I have been staying at the Ambassador the past two weeks on business and am having a near perfect stay. First, the hotel is absolutely gorgeous. I am currently staying in room with a decorative fireplace. The lobby is spectacularly decorated. The rooms itself are spacious with very nice amenities. Plenty of pillows, clean linens, bath robes, free water (you... More

I'm a single woman who traveled to KC alone for the first time ever - and the staff at the Ambassador made my birthday weekend one of the best ever!! They went above and beyond to ensure my stay was both enjoyable and (unknown to them) made safe. Every staff member I encountered was the quintessential perfect employee. My hotel... More
