We, along with our assocaition Members, attended an executive fly in. Of course, this is like herding snakes. Fortuantely we had the brilliance and ingenuity of Health Elevier of Courtyard by Marriot on Midland Avenue to the rescue. She went way above board and was a huge assist for our Business partners, members and our staff. She even brought her... More

Our usual downtown KC hotel was booked, so we tried this property. We hadn't noticed it before, it's much smaller and oh-so-charming. Old classic KC building, the architecture was reflected in our room, but updated with a modern, hip feel. The dining room was closed the night we wanted to dine there due to a private event. The chef took... More

I'm jet lagged... I am grateful for grateful services! Your driver Donna (Italian last name) is an awesome driver! The whole service here at the Ambassador is awesome. The place is luxuriously relaxing just looking at everything. Excellent attire and many smiles. If you ever need a ride, just call for one and the SUV black Cadillac will be available.... More

The Ambassador Hotel is a small boutique hotel in the Autograph Collection of Marriott. The rooms are similar to what you would find in a W and there is a lot of form over function, for example the bedside table are about a foot away from the bed so turning off the light actually requires you to get out of...

We just returned from yet another heavenly stay at the Ambassador. We loved the comfort of our roomy Corner King, and enjoyed the excellent attention of all the staff. Especially worthy of big Thank Yous are Shuk, Angelique, Donna Maria, and Mary Kate. Thanks again for another perfect trip. We look forward to seeing you again in June.

We love the Reserve!! We go there often. This restaurant is wonderful! Beautifully decorated and the food is delicious! They have the BEST scones! I have enjoyed breakfast, brunch, lunch, happy hour, and dinners there. Never disappointed! If you are fortunate enough to meet the chef you will love his Irish accent.

A boutique hotel, very unassuming from the outside. Ocne you walk through the doors you will be amazed and not one bit disappointed. The lobby area, bar and restaurant are very comfortable and retro. You feel like you are in the VIP lounge. Best for more intimate gatherings. Our room was huge and beautifyully appointed. Could not have asked for... More

A lovely hotel in downtown Kansas City. Beautiful rooms. Lovely beds. Very helpful staff. Free, really nice,cookies at the front desk (I know this isn't the biggest thing in the world, but they were good!). A really nice bar/ restaurant area. I'd certainly head back here.

Great location with friendly staffing! Once you arrive you know you have picked a great location to stay. Trendy bar and very relaxing lounge area to unwind. Cadillac car service to take you around the inner city of Kansas City. Rooms are very clean, modern, and very spacious. Highly recommend this hotel!
