This was the most uniquely decorated and elegant places I have stayed. Very classy. There was plenty of hotel staff but the restaurant was packed and only had one server/bartender. Food was ok. It was quiet. Close to a lot of activities. They had a trolley and a car service shuttle that could be used. The car was included in... More

The hotel was just what we were looking for, large room, clean and hip vibe. The hotel staff and courtesy drivers were top of their class. We did have an extremely disappointing visit to the in house restaurant. It took an excessive amount of time to get waters and the food not worth the wait. On the other hand we... More

I recently visited Kansas City with my sister. The Ambassador was the perfect place for us for location to our activities. The hotel is older but nice. Our room was large and the bathroom particularly nice. All the staff were great. They even have a free car service to and from any place within 5 miles of the hotel. And... More

This is a 5 star hotel in my book. Just a few blocks away from the Sprint Center and the Power and Light District. When we arrived we got lost because of road construction. I called the hotel and the lady that answered guided us to the hotel...she stayed on the phone with us and had the valet driver waiting... More

I booked in to the Ambassador for a business trip. It's a nice downtown location for travelers who want to spend some time in the Power & Light District or other places easily accessible from the free streetcar while enjoying some time not working. In addition, the hotel offers a free driving service for locations around the city that are... More

Kansas City doesn't have a five star hotel, but this place comes close. The service was very good, including a house car that drove me around as well as cookies during the work week. The food was also surprisingly good. The only problem was the service at the restaurant, which was a bit lackadaisical. I had one of the two-level... More

We stayed here in February, 2016 because we were seeing a concert at the Sprint Center and it was within walking distance. Booked it using points and was pleasantly surprised.

Beautiful building, nice rooms, etc. BUT, the BEST is the PEOPLE. From the front desk, to the amazing chef (Shaun) and the drivers (especially Bert), we were treated like royalty.

My wife and I enjoyed our stay at the Ambassador Hotel. The bell hope was excellent and very attentive. They offer shuttle service within 5 miles of the hotel. The room was well appointed and the AC was good considering it was 95 degrees outside. Would highly recommend this hotel to anyone staying in Kansas City.
