Beautiful building, but beds were terrible. After staying at 9 different places on our trip, this place wins for most curb appeal, but then it ends. Chaise had stains, shower was just so-so, but deal breaker were both queen beds being terribly uncomfortable. My daughter and I were both sore from sleeping so poorly.
This was easily our 10th stay at this wonderful property and it never fails to be a great experience. The hotel is small, which we like, and very "boutique" in nature. The rooms are large, comfortable and very cheery. The location is perfect with easy access to everything in Tulsa. They have a courtesy car which will take you anyplace for dinner within 3 miles, which covers all of downtown and the arts district. There's a lovely bar and highly rated restaurant (The Chalkboard) in the basement. The staff here is simply awesome...shout out to Elijah and Spencer at the front desk for their excellent service. Don't stay anyplace else in Tulsa.
Fine hotel, but TERRIBLE location. There is very little to be had as far as “walking distance” from the Ambassador Hotel. We went blocks in each direction and it was depressing and filled with people on drugs roaming the streets. This happened early on a mid-week evening. Not only did we find no reasonable options for dinner, it was a little nervous to be walking along and have people skateboard past yelling at us. There is a restaurant in the hotel, that was surprisingly good. It was slow but those that were dining, were guests at the hotel as there is no other nearby option. I would not recommend this hotel.
Everyone we encountered at the hotel was really pleasant and helpful. Upon arrival, the cordial agent at the check in desk offered to book us a table at The Chalkboard Restaurant. This was so thoughtful and really saved us having to trek out in the rain. The room itself was beautifully appointed and of a very nice size. The hotel was quiet and we slept very well. Everything about our stay was near perfect, except for the flatscreen in our room. It was rather dark and no matter how much the color was adjusted, it didn’t really help. Nonetheless, everything else was really great and I’d easily stay again at the Ambassador Hotel the next time I visit Tulsa.
I agonized over which hotel to pick because I was not familiar with Tulsa hotels. I debated between staying somewhere in the suburbs versus downtown location. The location of this hotel is nice because it is away from any hustle and bustle and loud partying which I didn’t want to be around. However, it was convenient to anywhere I wanted to go while I was in town. The decor in our room was absolutely beautiful. We really didn’t want to leave. I wish my home were as nice as the room. We had a king corner room. So nice to have double exposure. There was even a window near the bathroom area. Everything was decorated beautifully. We were blown away at the size of the room as well. And it was nice to have kind of a separate bathroom area away from the main room. We found staff to be extremely responsive. I called down because our fridge did not seem to be cold and they sent up a different one immediately. The front desk answered immediately on the phone each time I had contacted them. Room service was prompt and excellent. We ordered the breakfast taco. Although it was a simple meal, it was absolutely delicious. We dined in the restaurant one morning and had the white chocolate bread pudding entrée. It was to die for. The lovely smell in the lobby was very pleasing. I am so glad I chose this historic hotel. It was dead quiet. The lighting in the room was lovely. It was so nice to be able to control the temperature. The only complaint I had is that when I turned the heat up a little bit, the apparatus made a pretty loud noise that was disturbing. So I had to turn it down to stop that. Other than that, everything was absolutely perfect. I always look at negative reviews first and I can’t even understand the negative reviews of this place. It was just a beautiful lovely stay. …
