Spotless room, excellent room service, spacious, elegant rooms! When you walk through the front door of the hotel you wear you're in a different city! So elegant and beautiful. Staff is friendly and attentive, use the bath robes in each room...they're heaven! Easily the best hotel in KC.

I am a Marriott platimun member. I have stayed at this hotel a couple of times before. I love the decor and the staff is very nice. However, the last time I was here, there was a chunk of metal in my breakfast...looked like a kitchen utensil may have broken off in my food. I quietly let the staff know,...

We stayed at this hotel while we were in town for my son's wedding. It is very nice and the staff is nice too. The Reserve bar and restaurant was very cozy with a great wait staff. I would highly recommend the Ambassador.

To keep it short, I paid $250 for a room that didn't have a functional shower. I had to go to bed smelling like casino cigarette smoke and Hennessy. And all they could do is say "sorry" and offer me a reimbursement for their inconvenient parking. I definitely will not be coming back here.

The property is tastefully decorated with an exquisite lobby and modern furniture in rooms. However, as a Marriott Platinum member, I was very disappointed when I asked for an upgrade first and then asked to be moved and I was denied both. I asked to be moved since the noise level from the bar across the street was very loud...

The staff here were fantastic! The room was beautiful and the bed so comfy. Perfect location if you're headed to the Power and Light District. Room was on the side closest to the Power and Light District, so we could hear the music all night.
