We were at this hotel during Thanksgiving week for a basketball game at Sprint Center. It's a very old brick building outside just a block from the Sprint Center - but wow! It's beautiful inside! Our room was wonderful, upscale, and comfy! The food - delicious! Some of the best service we've experienced anywhere! We were so happy, we extended...

We have stayed in different hotels in the city on several visits. The Ambassador is far above any other experiences we have ever had. The following provided a great experience for us: spacious and clean rooms, comfortable bedding, luxurious bathrobes, in room free coffee, tea, and water, in room safe, a shuttle that would take us anywhere in a five...

This is my 2nd business trip to The Ambassador Hotel. It is a small well done 'boutique' hotel very central to many key locations in downtown Kansas City. The room(s) - large, beautifully appointed and clean/comfortable bed. Got upgraded to a suite recently and it is very impressive. The restaurant - great breakfast and staff - awesome lattes. Room service...

We loved our stay at The Ambassador Hotel back in November for our wedding and decided to book again for last weekends trip to Kansas City. The location is perfect and within walking distance to so many of the places we frequent in Kansas City. Our room was a 'Corner King' on the fifth floor and I think was even...

We enjoy staying at the Ambassador as the rooms are big and beds comfortable. They also provide free shuttle service in the area. I would appreciate a clean Tv and remote when I stay in a room that's a treat for me because it is expensive. I would also appreciate a more positive response from the desk clerk when I...

This was our first time to the Ambassador even though we have made many and frequent trips to KC. Don't know how we missed this! Fantastic staff everyone smiled! The valet parking was fast and seamless. The rooms were exquisite and the view of DT KC was beautiful. Surprisingly the food was excellent, not what I was expecting. The bartenders...

My wife and traveled to Kansas City for a quick get away for the daily grind. Having never been to KC before we really enjoyed the proximity to the Power and Light District. We also took full advantage of the hotel shuttle. It will take you anywhere within 5 miles (at check-in they told us pretty much anywhere we wanted...

Our stay was a date night surprise. We were greeted at the front door by a friendly gentleman ready to help us with luggage and parking information. The front desk immediately made us feel at home. We were met with cookies and a cold drink. The hotel is a former bank,beautifully restored with a contemporary feel. We had the executive...

Friends, What's it really all about when your staying away for business? I'll tell you "Service". That's what this hotel is ALL about! Weather it's the fresh baked cookies when you return from work, the Pleasent smiles and "how may we help you" it was such a refreshing experience. Let me continue... the hotel basically has no gym, so they...

Stayed at the Ambassador during the U.S. Figure Skating Championships. The executive king room offered around 400 sq ft and felt even larger. The lobby and restaurant area were chic and service was excellent. My only (small) complaint is the lack of obvious signage out front: the hotel is very easy to miss at night. Otherwise a fabulous stay.
