The hotel has a great location near the Sprint Center and the Power and Light district. You can walk to many cool bars, restaurants, the World War I museum and the arena. The hotel has shuttle service with...

Our room was well done in a modern way. With many renovations of older buildings, you have some drawbacks with plumbing or noise or something but this was not the case here. It was like a brand new place with old building charm. The hotel is small with just a few rooms. It has a great restaurant and bar. The...

My husband and I stayed at the Ambassador after seeing a show in Kansas City. Our stay at the hotel really made the evening special. The staff was very nice and friendly when checking in and our room was amazing. There was a huge, refinished fireplace in our room that really brought out the history of the building, while the...

The Ambassador is a 40-room boutique hotel. It is beautiful--the individual rooms and the dining room/bar and lobby. The room was spacious and elegant, the bathroom large and a walk in shower with glass door. The decor in the rooms is lovely--shades of gray, black, white and lots of glass and silver. Leather headboard, leather sofa. You can walk to...

When I first arrived at this hotel for a one night business trip, I was really dismayed. While the location is super convenient (I walked to all of my agency meetings), the lobby looks like a Holiday Inn. Luckily, the rooms themselves are much nicer -- pretty large, with comfortable beds and modern decor. The bathroom was very, very sparse...

The rooms are nicely renovated and ours was spacious. Great area to go out - tons of food, drinks and partying at the P&L district. We didn't eat at the hotel, but the drinks were good. Parking should be included though.

The Ambassador is one of Marriott's recently annexed medallions. They are older, remodeled period properties that typically offer a similar level of luxury as found at the more modern Marriott Marquis properties. Ambassadors are generally located to be convenient for the upper-middle scale business traveler, though the ones I've seen would make perfectly delightful romantic weekend spots for couples, too....
