Reviewed 26 March 2014

I stayed at this hotel on the weekend and it was a pleasant experience. We were there for a Martial arts event. The pool and the waterslide were a big plus for our group as we had many children attending the event. The bar area could use a redesign as it was very difficult to get service and they closed it Saturday night at 11 pm. Over all I found the staff helpful and courteous, the rooms clean but the place is a little tired. My room in the "tower" was up to date and modern The room service meals were served hot and fast.

The banquet food for the event was wonderful as were the staff serving at the event.

Room Tip: A great place for large groups

Stayed at the Ambassador for a sales conference. Great check in experience and friendly staff. However, entering the room was flashback to the 1980's. Small room, with an even smaller bathroom. In room electric heat was loud and inefficient and the bed was uncomfortable. However, the room was clean and tidy.

HI Brad, thank you for posting your comments regarding your recent visit. I am very pleased that you found our service to be excellent. I am disappointed that you were not thrilled with the room that you booked. We do have a wide range of accommodation here at the Ambassador and have a select few rooms that we distinguish as our "Economy Class" which are a bit smaller and thus offered a very reasonable rate. We also feature our Traditional, Comfort, and Business Class rooms.

Next time you plan to visit Kingston contact me personally so that I can arrange the accommodation that best suits your needs.

All the best;

The pool and the waterslide were a hit with the kids and the rooms were comfortable, current, and very clean. The hotel staff were friendly and accommodating, and did a great job welcoming families staying during the March Break - there were muffins and juice at the front desk and little loot bags for the kids. We were two families getting together over the holiday and had 5 kids between us - the restaurant staff were awesome! We had a fun and relaxing couple of days and the rooms were very quiet for sleeping. A great stay.

Rather than going all the way to Niagara, I took the grandkids to the Ambassador this year. It was a hit. They loved the waterslide and pool and I could keep an eye on them from one spot rather than having to make them both go to same venue and constantly moving around. Room was clean, bright, quiet and well appointed. Lots of activities geared to kids morning, afternoon and evening. Attention is paid to detail - our first day there I requested 'decaf' coffee and I got it every day after that automatically even though they were crazy busy during March break. Will definitely go back.

Room Tip: Our room was facing the atrium and surprisingly had lots of light and was very quiet.

While setting up a kiosk in Kingston my co workers and I stayed at the Ambassador. I personally stayed for over a month. Keri and her team did everything they could to make our experience in Kingston perfect. We also had our employee training in the boardroom which was exactly what we needed and nothing less. I highly recommend this hotel for business or pleasure. If you are going to stay in Kingston, don't look at any other hotel because nothing can compare to the staff and facilities of the Ambassador Conference Resort.

Me and my family had an awesome time at the Ambassador Hotel and resort over the march break. My 2 grils could not get enough of the pool and waterslide, an we really enjoyed soaking in the hot tubs. My daughters also really enjoyed the family activities they hosted. The hotel rooms were very clean and tidy. I have recommended The Ambassador to all of my mom friends as an excellent getaway with the family!

Although I live in Kingston, I thought it would be a nice treat for the kiddos to spend a night at the Ambassador and enjoy the pool and waterside. I was very pleased with the extra effort that was made my the hotel to make sure our stay was satisfactory. The kids were given a goody bag upon arrival and got to participate in a "decorate your own treat" activity. The pool waterside was a big hit. The pool area in general was pretty busy but obviously because it is a great place to bring the kids! The room was very clean. We ordered room service which came within 20 minutes of ordering and was very delicious! Kids want to know when we can go back!!
