I booked the queen queen deluxe for myself and two of my friends for a girls night out. The hotel was very elegant, without being too pretentious. While the room was beautiful and the beds were super comfy, it was also the hotel staff that made our stay so great. I have never received such amazing service. We arrived almost 5 hours before check-in, simply hoping to drop off our bags, but instead were greeted politely, and told that they had a room available for us to check into. That day and evening, we took full advantage of their FREE shuttle service that picked us up and dropped us off all over town. The drivers, Patrick and Frank, were fantastic!
The only thing I was not crazy about was the hotel's location. While it isn't far from the action, the neighborhood did not appear very safe, especially at night. Be prepared to utilize the free shuttle (runs until 11:30 pm), or pay for a cab (not expensive—it cost us $10 including tip to get from Water St. to the hotel). Overall, I would highly recommend staying at the Ambassador.
