Like walking into the Gatsby era. Eclectic, gorgeous, & immaculate. I am OCD on cleanliness, this was pristine. Highly recommend for all, less children. In the power and light district so walking to anything is done. Everything at your service. Restaurant was superb.

The location of this hotel is excellent. We went to a concert at Sprint Center and the hotel is a short 2 blocks away. It is also close to restaurants in the area. The room and the service were excellent.

I cannot remember the last time I had such a good dining experience at a restaurant. Let alone a hotel restaurant. They make many of their ingredients in house, like the chocolate on their chocolate covered strawberries and some of the cheeses on their cheese and fruit platter and mac and cheese side dish. Also, their breakfast is phenomenal. I... More

A very nice hotel! Within walking distance to the Sprint Center. Very clean & beautiful hotel. Front desk staff very helpful. We purchased a package called "bed & breakfast" which includes $25 for breakfast but the prices are very high & they add 20% gratuity so fat chance of getting breakfast for the $25.00. During checkout I found out about... More

We stayed here for a wedding while most other guests stayed at the Crown Plaza. They all hated their hotel and were kicking themselves for not booking at the Ambassador. I booked here because we've stayed at Ambassadors in Tulsa and OKC. We had the parlor suite which is wonderfully appointed but the selling feature is the extra 1/2 bath.... More

We (my sister, my service dog, and I) spent one night after a 9+ hour day on the road en route to Montana. We were very well taken care of by the staff, especially Ellen, at the front desk. She drove us to a recommended restaurant for some KC burnt ends and barbecue and picked us up after a delicious... More

Checked into The Ambassador for a weekend with my husband with fairly high expectations given all the reviews. Upon arriving the hotel was nice but no wow. Looking forward to a room on the 7th floor I opened the door to a very spacious room and again was left without that wow I anticipated. The room was exactly as pictured... More
