"Quiet Hotel close to P&L District"
Overall I was very happy with our stay. We also enjoyed eating in the hotel at the restaurant for breakfast. Very quiet and comfortable room. No signs for Valet parking or self parking, but after second trip around the block we found the lot ourselves

"Overall good experience"
The hotel was very nice and most of the staff was extremely friendly. One of the cleanest hotels I've been to. The rooms are large and the beds are comfortable. There is a restaurant in the hotel and the food there was very good. I liked that they had a free shuttle that took you anywhere within a 5 mile radius. Beats trying to find parking. Overall, we had a good experience and I would come back.

"Beautiful Hotel by Power & Light District"
We stayed one night at the Ambassador Hotel to simply have a nice place to stay within walking distance of Power & Light. The service was excellent, although we didn't ask for much during our stay. The hotel itself is beautiful inside and our room, a "Corner King" was very clean. The bed was very comfy and the bathroom was beautiful, as well. The bathroom only had a shower, no tub, which was fine with us. The shower was spacious and had a very nice shower head. Overall, we were impressed with this hotel and will stay there again when in downtown KC.

We were not there very long, checked in in the evening and left the next morning so we did not have a lot of experiences but our room was great. The only negatives we found is that we wish there had been more than two bath towels in the bathroom and there was a hole in our carpet just outside of the bathroom. Not what you would expect for a 4 star hotel. Otherwise everything else was great.

"great location"
This is a nice hotel in a great location! We had tickets to a show at the Midland Theater and this was within walking distance. Lots of theaters nearby and a good selection of restaurants. The room itself was clean, spacious, and beautiful! The large marble shower in the bathroom and decorative scrollwork in the bedroom made it feel luxurious. Water, tea and (Keurig) coffee were complimentary. Unfortunately, breakfast is not included in the room rate and their breakfast menu is WAY overpriced. Otherwise, it was a great experience staying at the Ambassador.

"Wonderful bank conversion"
bank built in 1920, converted to a gem of a small hotel. The public spaces were small and cozy - well appointed and all done to the smaller scale of the old bank lobby. The rooms, however, were generous in size stylish in a grey and eggplant color scheme. The hotel staff were outstandingly helpful - the bar well stocked. The complimentary shuttle was convenient and helpful in the inclement weather of the weekend.

"Very nice hotel - but pricey"
We enjoyed our stay, but probably won't spend this much to stay here again. The hotel is very nice. Clean. The staff was exceptional. Great location downtown. Free shuttle within 5 miles. Self parking $18/Valet $20. Room temperature left something to be desired. When the heat turned on, it was loud and blew directly on the bed. (Rm 601.) Noises from the hallway were easily heard. Given the average room size and very few hotel amenities, the price seems too high.

"Nice hotel"
I usually stay at the big chain hotels when I travel for business but decided to try the Ambassador because it was close to my client's office. What a nice surprise. Beautiful hotel. The rooms were really nice- beautiful bathrooms. Food was excellent- I ordered room service. The only thing was the bed was not real comfortable and not great lighting by my bed- a little hard to work. But, I would definitely stay there again. Nice staff, too.

"Old Hollywood Glamour!"
A beautiful hotel, very tastefully decorated in a cross between upscale modern and old Hollywood glamour. The price is reasonable for the quality of hotel. The only issue was the rooms were a little dark even with all the lamps on. However it would be perfect for a romantic getaway! The shower was amazing.

"A Must Stay!!"
I'm not sure if you could find a better mix of atmosphere and amenities. Just 1 block away from the Power & Light District as well as Sprint Center, you're definitely downtown. Parking is secured and gated. The best part, waliking into the lobby is like stepping back into time. Almost a 1920's kind of vibe. The staff was accomodating and the room was perfect. My wife and I will definitely be back!

"One of the coolest hotels I have every stayed with"
The hotel itself is just cool. The staff was great. The rooms were spacious and furnished with beautiful pieces. The color scheme fit directly with the overall theme of the hotel. It's a small 42 room hotel but evreything about it just said "cool". The bar/restaurant staff were friendly and very accomodating. The food was very good but the menu is somewhat limited. If I ever find myself in Kansas City again , I will not think of anywhere else to stay. Excellent service and accomdations...I would highly recommend.

"on the way to being great ....still"
smallest room on floor was large compared to other hotels and very clean and modern. Coffee m/c was broken - but for 1 night not a big deal. Staff are a little too cool for school, (checked in @ 10 asked for upgrade, but none available on a MONDAY night and hotels.com still had 2 rooms for sale an hour later.......) restaurant was funky/cool - 4 for furnishings, 3 for food/service.

We planned for a romantic evening at the Ambassador with an event at the Sprint Center. Fantastic! Parking is immediately adjacent to the hotel and extremely convenient. The hotel is beautifully appointed and the room was not only updated lux, but also very comfortable. Both Sprint Center and Power & Light district are very walkable. A great experience all around.

"Amazing Hotel, but had no hot water"
Ambassador Hotel was an amazing hotel for us to stay at for my cousins shower/bachelorette party. The hotel is beautiful and clean, but we had no hot water AT ALL in one of the rooms and then limited hot water in the other. The guests in the one with no hot water did not get a shower due to the water issue. The hotel did refund our parking fess, but since I didn't book through them, could not give me a refund.

This was one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in. From the bathroom fixtures to the elevator to the room amenities, everything was gleaming and first-rate. I had not heard of this small chain of only three cities, but I'll definitely be coming back. I even got an amazing organic grass-fed steak at 10:00pm at the bar!

We chose this location because we were going to a concert at the Sprint Center. There were 4 women and we felt very safe walking a block and a half to our concert. We didn't spend much time in the hotel but the time we did, we were very satisified. They were very accommodating when we asked for more water and coffee. Would definitely stay here again.

The room was nice and well decorated. The interior of the hotel was beautifully decorated. The fitness center was lacking and no pool- wish they had more to offer..The room itself was clean (on the surface)- we couldn't find the remote and had to look under the bed :/ EEKKK...gross. We chose to walk to our restaurant and ended up being harassed by people from the surrounding neighborhoods- all in all it was a fun staycation. The price of the room was a decent value.

We drove from Atlanta - and took the scenic route - so had fifteen hours under our belts when we arrived at 9:30pm, so all we wanted was an easy check-in and a comfortable room. We were welcomed immediately and received swift, professional service. Our room was more indulgent, cozy, beautiful, and spacious than we had imagined. The decor was modern, tasteful, and the aesthetics were warm and luxurious. The bathroom was outstanding, with granite-work in the shower that was inspiring and well-done. The only word for the bed was 'heavenly'. The overall impression of both the room and hotel was that someone had taken real care in the overall aesthetic as well as construction. The only downside was that my significant other was bothered twice by panhandlers when he went down to the parking lot to get things from our car. We would definitely revisit the Ambassador when travelling through Kansas City.

"Modern and Convenient Stay!"
I was very impressed with our stay. My only complaints are that the room wasn't clean until after 4 pm, which left us without towels. And there was road work being done, which involved jack hammers outside of our room sounding off early Saturday morning. Overall I would definitely stay there again! Very convenient (a block away from Power and Light) and the staff was great!

"Beautiful hotel"
We went to KC for a concert at the Sprint Center. This hotel is within easy walking distance of the Sprint Center, store & restaurants in the area. They also have complimentary shuttle service w/I 5 miles. The hotel staff were friendly & recommended a wonderful restaurant, The Majestic. The only thing that bothered us was that the maid knocked on our door at 8 AM. Not cool when theckout wasn't until 12PM. The need "do not disturb" sign to avoid this.

"Not a great evening"
So my wife and I chose this hotel for a couple of reasons, 1. It looked like a really nice hotel for us to be for our 1st wedding anniversary and 2. It was conveniently located to a wedding reception we were attending. When we arrived back at our hotel at 11pm there was a party in the reception /lounge area and people were walking in off the street. The music was blaring. We retired to our room and prepared for bed. At around 12 am we heard loud shouting and doors being slammed on our floor. My wife eventually called the front desk and complained. The noise did however not abate and in fact got worse. This continued until at least 1:40 am. Nothing was done by the hotel to try silence the noisemakers. There was also no access control from the party to the elevators accessing the bedrooms. Stay away from this hotel if you are looking for a peaceful quiete night.

"Very long night"
First, they are a pet friendly hotel, but the closest place to potty them is 1 1/2 blocks away and the staff didn't even know about it. There is a hefty price for them to stay too. Second, (It wasn't peek season) they put us in a room that faced the main street, that they know there was an event that night. We didn't realize it til just before bed. Third, the air conditioner was very noisy when it kicked on, and hot when it wasn't on.
