I booked a reservation here on the recommendation of a co-worker and it was a great choice. Came in on a Sunday night and the staff was great. They helped get me with everything I needed, including a well made drink from the bar. I'll definitely stay here again the next time I'm in Kansas City.

General/Room: Stayed for five nights and was generally impressed with the hotel and the quality of the rooms. Spacious room included two queen size beds which were comfortable for our family of four. Bathrooms were nicely appointed with two vanities with Carrara marble and a large walk-in shower. Views are non-existent at this hotel -- our room looked at the...

Spent the weekend here over my birthday. Loved the swanky interior, quaint feel, and personal attention of this hotel. We received, on three occasions, notes from staff members as well as chocolates and drinks, offering well wishes for my birthday. Shuk (I believe that is his name) went well out of his way to ensure needs were met at breakfast,...

After trying out some other parts of town and other lodging options, I am back to the Ambassador for good. The hotel is well located, service is professional and welcoming, food from room service and the restaurant are very good and the rooms are beyond comfortable. Stayed in King room 502. Upon entering it was clear that the room was...

I really enjoyed my stay. The hotel decor is beautifully done. I love the modern old world style. My room was quiet except for the road noise which is expected staying downtown. Room was clean and comfortable. Lots of marble, granite and leather. The lobby and hotel seemed really clean. I was amazed the hotel didn't seem busy because this...

Hip hotel in downtown location with impeccable service. We had a double room which was very spacious and comfortable with a double vanity in the bathroom. This is the Raphael's younger stylish sister. My niece and I didn't want to leave. Be sure to make use of the hotel's car service.

I could go on and on about this little gem in KC. In short, the room was beautiful, modern, and comfortable, the lobby is quiet and welcoming, the food in the restaurant is delicious (amazing actually) and the service was superb (every employee bent over backwards for me). I told the shuttle driver that I didn't want to leave and...

My husband and I were completely spoiled by the accommodations here during our stay! We loved our room, the furnishings, the staff...everything! Our only issue was that the bathroom sliding door was a little difficult to move, but otherwise, everything was perfect. The room service was also amazing, prompt, and followed hand-written requests on our door hangtag to the letter!...

I truly think this is the most beautiful hotel in downtown KC....every room is stunning and the restaurant/bar has a great selection. Very modern, sleek, and sophisticated and in a great location to be near all downtown has to offer.
