“Couldn't have been better.”
Reviewed 13 June 2014

I stayed here on a business trip and was absolutely blown away. From the room to the food to the service, everything was impressive and beyond my expectations.

My room was immaculate, well designed and comfortable. I really enjoyed having a Keurig in my room. The bathrooms were amazing, you could even see the TV from the toilet!

I had a great experience at their bar. The drinks, food, and service were all exceptional.

I honestly can't say enough about how impressed I was with the Ambassador.

The Ambassador Hotel provides boutique luxury in downtown Kansas City. The staff was helpful and I enjoyed the bar in the lobby, which (like the hotel) had a unique decor. I traveled to this hotel on business and had some last minute changes of plans which the hotel staff helped me with, including an extended reservation. I would definitely stay there again next time I am in Kansas City.

The Ambassador Hotel is situated in the center of Kansas City. The rooms are very generously proportioned and offer a great price / quality-space return. The rooms are quiet and the beds are comfortable. The staff are helpful and friendly. The restaurant provides good quality meals if one chooses not to venture out - I can recommend the short ribs. The bar tender also mixed a good rye-Manhattan. What more could one ask for?

I've never written a review on a place either good or bad. But this place was amazing! From speaking to Ellen (front counter). I had booked it through Expedia and had some technical issues stating it could not book. I called to book directly with Ambassador and they would honor the rate online. Apparently, Expedia had charged me already and Ellen made me aware of that.

The room was phenomenal! The interior decorator did an awesome job. It was very so much our taste, color, and décor.

Great complimentary driver to anywhere within a certain distance. Patrick was our driver and he got lucky and had him drive us around to a couple of locations within the night back to back.

The stay was so great that we woke up 30 mins before we had to check out and we were able to extend to a late check out.

We later had lunch at the Reserve/Bar. We had the server/bartender (Celia) to ourselves and she was wonderful. Great, Great service!

Last but not least, we left a pillow in the room and by the time we got to it the case was already sent to be cleaned. Brenda was able to retrieve it the next couple of days and sent it back to us!

I could not say more. We will not stay anywhere else when we visit Kansas City again.

We love everything about this hotel! Such an attentive staff, large and beautifully appointed rooms, car service, and a terrific bar. We haven't tried the restaurant yet, but we have enjoyed the bar. We've stayed at all of the downtown KC hotels in the past, and this one is our favorite by far. We've stayed four times and would happily recommend this hotel to anyone.

We are honored to know that we are your favorite hotel in downtown KC. Our staff takes great pride in providing attentive service for all of our guests. I hope you are able to try Reserve the next time you visit, we have a very talented culinary team and I am sure you will enjoy the restaurant as much as the hotel. Thank you for posting your review and I hope to see you again very soon.
