My husband and I stayed for four nights at the Ambassador Hotel whilst visiting Kansas City for a family event. This was our second stay at the Ambassador, the previous time being six months ago. On our arrival we were warmly greeted by a smiling person on reception who remembered us from our previous stay. Our room, as before, was...

Had a room with double beds. Bed very comfortable and staff was very polite and helpful. Stayed here while visiting the power and light district. Great location as well. Not bad in price for the area. Check in was fast and went well. Check even faster. Will stay here again.

Was here for a too-quick overnight on a business trip. Barely got to see the property, but what I did see was lovely. Friendly front desk staff. Huge room with sweeping views out of two sides. Room was well-appointed and comfortable. Many large rooms don't have enough furniture, this one had plenty. Bathroom had everything you'd need, and was not...

We paid for it, but last minute (even with Garth Brooks in town) we were able to book this hotel through TripAdvisor. Excellent choice, location was great. Walking distance to everything. Shuttle service within a 5 mile radius that we used twice. All of the staff were extremely polite. A very clean hotel, rooms were very comfortable. I loved the...

I actually live in Kansas City and recently rented one of the loft suites for a birthday party. This is such a quaint hotel, centrally located in the Power and Light District so you have access to all the restaurants, bars and Sprint Center. I can't go on enough about the customer service we received. Garth Brooks happen to be...

We stayed in this hotel last week for one night. It was incredible!!

I visited the Ambassador a few weeks ago and was spoiled by the room they gave me - Room 202 is just awesome. Arriving again, i didn't get the upgrade this time but was again pleasantly surprised by the room. It was comfortable and well appointed and felt like being home. It's a trendy place with just the right touches...

Stayed there for one night, for valentines day. Will definitely come back. Rooms were nice, great location, food was wonderful, there was a pre-fixed menu for Valentine's day but I have shellfish allergy so the chef actually came and talked to me and made modifications to the menu which was great.

From the moment we arrived, my wife and I were treated like celebrities. We saw this same level of service for all others also staying at the hotel.

We were at this hotel during Thanksgiving week for a basketball game at Sprint Center. It's a very old brick building outside just a block from the Sprint Center - but wow! It's beautiful inside!
