Let me start by saying this one was difficult to rate. I'm the type of traveler that doesn't need a great deal of service. I travel often so I don't need much help. So my reviews of hotels tend to focus on the property itself...the room, the location, the amenities, the overall design, etc.
First of all, the service at the Ambassador was exemplary. Remember, this is coming from someone who doesn't care about service :) The front desk person was pleasant, prompt and helpful. He seemed genuinely interested in my stay and it showed.
So why the average overall rating? I'm not a fan of the older style hotels. Yes, there's a certain charm about them and yes my room was very large. But it felt like being at grandma's house with the carpeting, bathroom and other design elements. Again, keep in mind, this is coming from someone who likes a more boutique style hotel. If you like going to grandma's, you'll like this place.
Also, be careful if you go for a walk near the hotel. The area can get sketchy pretty quick.
