Can't say enough great things about this hotel and staff. We had dined at the Ambassador hotel restaurant (The Reserve) in the past, but always wondered what it would be like to stay at the hotel. Needless to say, we were not disappointed. The room was much larger than expected. Very clean. The location is perfect for attending events at... More

This hotel is in the majestic, graceful setting of an old bank but with modern style-- the lobby and restaurant are gorgeous, rooms are spacious and modern, and the 6th floor loft is incredibly spacious and beautifully appointed. Service was helpful, kind and gracious-- I emailed a document to the front desk and they printed it out by the time... More

I surprised my husband with tickets to the Transiberian Orchestra for his birthday and decided to make two full days of it. I looked up hotels near the Sprint Center and this hotel popped up. I decided to splurge on the romantic getaway package and very glad I did. The service was friendly and welcoming from the moment we checked... More

I'm so happy to have this wonderful hotel in my favorites list. It's not often that a hotel is a slam dunk for me. Stayed here while visiting my little brother in KC and it was a truly memorable stay. The building used to be a bank I was told and was renovated 2 years ago. Stumbled onto it on... More

We had our corporate Christmas Party at the Ambassador Hotel in KC this year. The hotel was beyond beautiful, the decor is classy with a swag twist. We dined in the restaurant/bar area and I can't express enough how gorgeous and functional it was.

After a lot of research I decided this would be the best place for our family of four to stay for a special occasion. Parking is $18...ridiculous! Parking is on the side, no door to get in except walk through an unlocked gait to the front door. The interior lobby is beautiful and the employees are friendly and helpful. The... More

My wife attended a concert that was in downtown KC and we decided to stay at the ambassador. The rooms were roomy and very comfortable and the bed was great. We ate at the restaurant for a late snack and breakfast the next morning. Food and service was great. We'll be back.

Just had an amazing dinner there this week with World Whiskey Specialist Joe Terranova from Jim Beam. Chef Brady paired a selection of the Knob Creek Whiskies with creations from his kitchen. The food was amazing, service excellent and the whiskey to die for. Can't wait for the next whiskey/wine or whatever dinner.
