Verified Reviews of The Ambassador Hotel Kansas City

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Putting Together a Wedding? Look No Further!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The GREAT staff at the Ambassador (Linda, Paul and Chef Shawn) helped my then fiance and I put together an intimate (30-ish guests) wedding the weekend of October 4, 2014. We took over the restaurant area for the wedding/reception and put our out-of-town guests up in this stellar hotel. The staff did a great job planning for what could be anticipated and gets major "improv points" for adjusting as our needs evolved and changed. This is particularly impressive, since we lost our original venue THREE WEEKS prior to the wedding. We NEEDED to count on the Ambassador and they delivered. In every way. Even though we're "locals" in KC, we'll be staying and dining there again soon! Thanks again, staff of the Ambassador! You're our heroes!
