This is a very nice hotel, centrally located in the Power & Light District. The rooms are well appointed and we opted for a corner king, which is very spacious. There's a nice bar for a nightcap and the staff is friendly. There is some construction going on, with related noise but it wasn't a bother. We did have a problem with our A\C on our last night. It was on heat and wouldn't turn off for us or hotel staff. When it got to 91 degrees everyone gave up. They were full so we were eventually moved to another Marriott property. I feel they were a bit slow to react and were hoping we would just live with it. In the end, it got resolved.

We frequently visit our old stomping grounds in KC MO but never stayed downtown. This trip we wanted to be near the Power and Light District and chose the Ambassador. Classic, beautiful and absolutely wonderful stay!

I was in Kansas City on business and checked the reviews of all the hotels in the area before I decided to stay at the Ambassador. I'm glad I did. The staff was wonderful, the rooms were clean and updated, and the building itself had a very 1920s charm to it. Unfortunately, I didn't get a chance to check out the speakeasy that is hidden away under the building. On the street level there is a great steak house and bar. It's a little pricey but worth it.

I recommend this hotel if you’re in Kansas City! I spent time here again recently on a business trip and wasn’t disappointed. My office was downtown and they were able to shuttle me back and forth which was very convenient. The room was larger than most and had a nice desk for working in the evenings. Also very nice to have a Keurig in your room for quick coffee! Visitor privileges at One Life gym was appreciated-it’s a short walk and has tons of equipment and group fitness classes. The gym is also next door to Cosentino’s Market, where you can grab drinks, snacks, or a meal from the deli section. Great stay and will be back on my next trip to KC!

Rooms are exceptionally spacious, clean and well-appointed. All modern fixtures. All major sites are within walking distance. And the staff will help you find your way about town w ease - including a free shuttle!!

Hello Dawi888! As lexusprincess mentions, our shuttle runs a 5 mile radius of the hotel. Unfortunately the Starlight Theater is outside of this radius. Let us know if you have further questions and we do hope to have you... More
