Other than no sheets on our bed, no soap in our rooms & bathroom was still some what dirty, the stay was nice. The price of in door parking, seeing as it is barely far from out door parking, is ridiculous. Overall feel of Ambassador Hotel is THE ONLY reason I keep returning. The 1920's theme is so neat.

We have been staying at the Ambassador hotel for 4 years and really enjoy the location, rooms, Deco bar and the coffee shop. It's also very nice to be able to come and go with our car or take the free shuttle.Connie is a fantastic employee who knows us and goes out of her way to make our stay enjoyable.

We had a King whirlpool suite. Whirlpool is very small, not really for 2 people. The room itself was spacious and clean. The hotel décor is amazing- restored to it's art deco grandeur. Unfortunately, the neighborhood seemed iffy but we were there for it's proximity to the concert hall. We had a bed & breakfast package and ended up a...

Enjoyed the stay very much. Very close to my family and the shuttle service transported me several times with ease. This was one of the reasons I picked this hotel. Lovely, special architecture.

This is the 3rd time I've stayed at the Ambassador and have been very please each time. I do think the food service cost is a bit high. The room size is very good. I really like the master light switch.

Stayed here several times. Look forward to a return, but this time the hotel was showing some wear. Getting a little "tired"? Fix the TP holders, clean up the garage staircase, find a way to let the housekeepers know when service IS wanted.

We have stayed at this hotel many times. It seems in the past year the rates have gone up considerably. We booked through the hotel itself, when I was looking for directions to put in my GPS the hotel name came up with a price much lower than we were going to be paying. I asked at the desk about...
