This is an outstanding hotel. I live in the KC area and when we go on vacation, we like to start it by staying the night at the Ambassador before heading to the airport the next day.

From arrival to departure our stay was spectacular. The restutant/ bar service was great and the atmosphere was very unique. Being a smaller hotel they are able to focus on the guests. Unlike many large chains. The valet and "shuttle" drivers were very nice and made you feel at home. I say "shuttle" because it was more like a personal... More

This was our first trip to Kansas City; we were invited to a wedding that was held in the Power and Light District. Once we viewed the on-line photos of the hotel, we decided to stay an extra night! The photos do not lie--the rooms are gorgeous. Our room was TWICE the size of a standard hotel room. The large... More

I decided to set up a romantic surprise overnight with the hubbie. I couldn't think of a more romantic setting to have our "affair" meet up than the lovely RESERVE in the Ambassador Hotel.

The Ambassador is an absolute gem of a hotel. I was positively impressed by the nightly rate (includes free wifi), furnishings, size of the room, quality of the bathroom fixtures, and the service that I received during my brief stay. Also, I have NEVER seen a hotel room so clean. The furniture is lacquered black wood, and there was not... More

This cozy boutique hotel was just perfect. It was really quiet and elegant. I love historic Kansas City architecture, and this building has been restored beautifully. I don't know what else to say that hasn't been said in other reviews- every aspect of our stay was wonderful.
