We booked with Ambassador, and I think it's definitely a great value if you are looking for a less expensive hotel that is downtown. We took the free shuttle to and from the casino, public museum, and Mader's. The driver was efficient with drop ups and pick ups and was friendly. The front desk staff was pleasant and quickly answered all my questions. The room was very clean, and the bed was comfortable. The decor of the first floor with the lobby and bar is fantastic. We sat for an hour in the bar area (the Envoy) and really enjoyed the atmosphere with the beautiful chandeliers and other period furniture.
