My family and I stayed at the Ambassador Hotel in Kansas City over Memorial Day 2015. This is our second time at the property and the hotel is by far the best in Kansas City. Five star quality and service!

The property is beautiful, historic and very well maintained, but what made this an excellent stay was the staff. From the front desk to the bartenders to the valet driver, everyone was professional, friendly and very helpful.

I am a very picky traveler and I was extremely comfortable at this hotel. Room was clean, staff was top notch and dinner tasted awesome. Only complaint that I would have is that the grout in the bathroom was very dirty and there were a few signs that the carpet was not vacuumed with great detail. But again, I am... More

This hotel is really nice. All staff seemed genuinely eager to make my stay the best it could be - from housekeeper Lisa to shuttle driver Donna Marie. When Donna Marie had a couple of days off, the General Manager drove me to work. I found out from someone else that he was the GM - he never told me.... More

This hotel was fantastic! The service was outstanding! I would absolutely stay here again. Each time we needed something, the staff was attentive. The food and drinks were great. Very conveniently located by the Power & Lights district.

Booked this hotel for the Billy Joel concert weekend. Had the most wonderful time. The hotel is in the perfect location downtown to attend functions at the Sprint Center and to walk to anything. The hotel staff is amazing, the hotel spotless, the loft suites so comfortable. Had drinks and breakfast in the Reserve and were delighted with service, food... More

This place was great, comfortable and so close to home. My wife and daughter celebrated our 6 year anniversary here. Shuk made sure everything was taken care of, from the surprise in room massage for my wife, to the baby crib in the room. The shuttle service is great as well. I automatically thought of a huge bus, or 15... More

Ambassador is a great small hotel (43 rooms) in Downtown KC. Two blocks from Sprint Center for concerts and sports. Great service including complimentary car service. Rooms are large and well appointed. Staff was very attentive, especially Shuk and Patrick. All in all an excellent boutique experience including a very comfy bar.
