So posh...great 3 day getaway for me and my family. Excellent service, super clean rooms and very, very comfortable beds. The Library dining was so good. Quiet hallways at night (always a plus). Thanks again!

The staff went the extra mile to help deliver a special celebratory gift to my friend who recently eloped and stayed at the Ambassador Chicago. Their attention to detail and eagerness to help really made my friends day special, allowing me to be a part of their special day when I couldn't be there in person. Big thank you to Bre, Matt, Jacob and the entire front office team!

Our room was clean, comfortable and spacious. Staff was friendly and responsive. Our air conditioning worked well, which was important as it was very hot weekend during our stay. Water pressure in shower was also great. Due to covid restrictions, breakfast options in lobby were limited but sufficient. Hotel is great location and within close walking distance to many attractions, stores, restaurants, etc.

Bre was unbelievable to talk to today. She was so personable and really took care of the specifics when it came down to planning my upcoming event. Bre was able to answer all of my questions, and anything I needed, this hotel will make sure you have it! I haven’t even gone to my own event yet, but the attention to detail already in the initial phone call, has me confident for when it finally happens! Highly recommend for any event.
