A bit more critical in this review due to relative value, I am pushing down my rating due to price vs value. This Marriott affiliate (though aptly not a mention of Marriott which is good) offers a refreshing alternative to the more stale corporate brands littered around Kansas City. The location is downtown, but I am not sure if it... More

I live in metro Kansas City, and this hotel is a vacation in my hometown. The most wonderful place to stay if I am spending an evening in the city, and a beautiful place to wake up in the morning. I you are planning some time in KC book the Ambassador early, as the rooms fill quickly!

The gate to the parking lot of hotel is always closed. You must use your room key, or buzz the front desk to let you in. The hotel staff was very nice and accommodating. Parking was $18 per night. There is public parking a block a way for $5 a day. Hotel offers complimentary driver to take you anywhere within... More

The Ambassador and staff are just consistently great. On this particular trip I needed to check in early and the staff was VERY welcoming and accommodating. The location is very convenient and the hotel is beautiful, but the difference here is the staff. Every time I return to the Ambassador I'm immediately reminded why I came back. This is priced...

My husband & I stayed here recently while in town for a concert and everything was lovely. Parking was far more convenient than I anticipated (gated lot next door) and service was excellent. We were able to arrange for the hotel shuttle to drop us off at our event and the driver was very personable and professional. Location is convenient... More

Stayed the weekend of the Rolling Stones concert. Friendly staff. Great vibe of upscale plushy yet comfortable. Loved the decor and building's character. Great self-parking location. Conducive to downtown walking. Requested a higher floor and front view; was not disappointed. Couldn't determine if there was a way to get the mini-fridge temp set a little colder, but that was a...

If you have stayed at an Ambassador hotel before the rooms are pretty much the same, but the rest of the hotel is unique from one another. We particularly enjoyed the bar/dining area. The only issue I had were the tiny parking stalls, not SUV friendly at all once the place fills up with guests.

What a great hotel! We recently spent two nights at the Ambassador and I wish we could have stayed longer. The location is perfect--two blocks from Power & Light and the Sprint Center. The hotel itself is perfectly renovated and full of charm. The lobby bar/restaurant has a great boutique vibe with good food and even better drinks. The overall... More

I was upgraded to a loft suite and it was amazing! What a stunning room. The decor was really nice, the space was huge, and the check in process was great (Jacqueline). Despite arriving during a tornado, Jacqueline was super friendly and accommodating. I wish I could have stayed for more than one night in that spectacular room.

We have stayed at the Ambassador in Tulsa so decided to try this one in KC when we had a party to attend in the Power and Light district. We were not disappointed! Set in an old bank, our room actually was the owner of the banks office we were told by the front desk staff. Very cool layout and... More
