This is the second of the Autograph Hotels we've stayed in. The brand is consistent in its elegance and quality. The lobby is an oasis of calm and the rooms are large and well appointed. Parking is in the adjacent secure lot.

This was the 12th and final hotel which my husband and I stayed at on our American road trip. On arrival we were quickly and efficiently checked in. We parked our car in the hotel car park which was just next door and very safe and secure. Our room 607 was very spacious, with a comfortable bed and stylishly decorated.We...

The rooms are very large and spacious, however it was disappointing that the beds were marginal and the pillows horrible since it is a very expensive place to stay. Aside from not doing anything about the person smoking on our floor two nights in a row the staff as excellent. The concierge drivers were very friendly and helpful with suggestions....

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...

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...

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.

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 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...

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...
