“Relaxing after business trip”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

This hotel was one of the nicest hotels I have stayed in across the country. The room was luxurious, king bed was plush, large LCD TV and super sweet walk-in shower. The location is central and all aspects of my trip, from business to pleasure, were within walking distance. Highly recommend.

The staff always makes a big difference where you stay, and everyone here was outstanding. They were quick and courteous in responding to our requests. Although we found the menu a bit limited in the restaurant, the food was wonderful! The stay was a little pricey, but worth the money.

If you're looking for a nice hotel in Kansas City that has a more intimate feel than the big boys then the Ambassador is the place to stay. You walk right in to a cool little dinning/bar area right off the stylish lobby. Staff is friendly and efficient and the rooms are very nice. Best of all the rates blow other luxury hotels away. Great restaurants, bars and Kaufman Performance Center were walking distance.

Room Tip: We stayed in 208 which had a blah view of the parking lot.

I stayed here on a business trip and was absolutely blown away. From the room to the food to the service, everything was impressive and beyond my expectations.

My room was immaculate, well designed and comfortable. I really enjoyed having a Keurig in my room. The bathrooms were amazing, you could even see the TV from the toilet!

I had a great experience at their bar. The drinks, food, and service were all exceptional.

I honestly can't say enough about how impressed I was with the Ambassador.

The Ambassador Hotel provides boutique luxury in downtown Kansas City. The staff was helpful and I enjoyed the bar in the lobby, which (like the hotel) had a unique decor. I traveled to this hotel on business and had some last minute changes of plans which the hotel staff helped me with, including an extended reservation. I would definitely stay there again next time I am in Kansas City.

The Ambassador Hotel is situated in the center of Kansas City. The rooms are very generously proportioned and offer a great price / quality-space return. The rooms are quiet and the beds are comfortable. The staff are helpful and friendly. The restaurant provides good quality meals if one chooses not to venture out - I can recommend the short ribs. The bar tender also mixed a good rye-Manhattan. What more could one ask for?
