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...

We have stayed at an Ambassador Hotel in Oklahoma City and had a great experience. We were in Kansas City for our wedding and decided to stay at the Ambassador in downtown Kansas City near the Power and Light District. The hotel is really nice and located in a great place that is within walking distance to all the bars...

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....

We were the guests for a gala, and were given a nights stay at the Ambassador. It was truly absolute luxury. The staff were very friendly, and helpful. The bed was soft, comfy, wonderful linens, incredible bathroom, huge marble shower. Most of all it was QUIET! We loved every minute of it.

Love going to The Ambassador for lunch or after work. They are fast with food prep and conscientious of timeframes for business lunch. Great food with nice flavoring. Staff is helpful and courteous. Atmosphere looks a bit formal but is comfy, a great place to have a break for lunch. Prices are average and well worth the food.

My family and I stayed in one of the lofted rooms for 3 nights. My only issue was that the walls were pretty thin because we could hear the neighbors talking. The room service food was excellent, we had the salmon ceasar salad, the burger and the bread pudding for dessert. The dessert was by far my favorite. Overall a...
