Had to spend a couple of nights in Kansas City and my friend picked the Ambassador hotel downtown.
The lobby and the bar restaurant space and was decorated in white leather, fur, animal prints and a dash of color but housed in what they told me used to be a bank. Loved the glass chandeliers.
Front desk was nice. Hit or miss on recommendations.
My room was big. Decent tellie, nice comfy bed, clean. I liked the decor; simple, modern, stylish, not cluttered or nonfunctional. The Picasso artwork is some of the best I've seen a hotel yet. Bathroom was big, glass shower, vanity.
We didn't try the food and the bar was usually empty. Not a whole lot around the immediate area of the hotel. Its close to an entertainment district with lots of chain type bars. Other than that most things seemed to be closed after work hours.
