Public spaces great, rooms are disappointing
The lobby is beautiful, the staff is attentive and friendly, the restaurant was delicious. However, the room was very disappointing. We had a suite and the bathroom was dingy and dirty and throughout the room the wall to wall carpeting was stained. We avoided being in our room as much as possible.

North of the Loop
We had a wonderful time and felt quite at home at The Ambassador. The people including Stephen at the front desk were kind and helpful. Our room was large, quiet and comfortable. The Cafe was perfect for breakfast and the coffee was robust. The location allowed for walking with numerous nearby restaurants

Pleas Read Before Booking Ambassador
From the moment we pulled the car up it was a horrible experience. The valet just wanted to take out bags for a tip but wouldst take the coffee cup or point us to the trash can. Then the front desk person was so unprofessional. In years of travel I was appalled. Then our room was not ready even though check in starts after 3pom and it was close to 4pm. Frontdesk member wouldn't or couldn't say when thew room would be ready and then said the policy is a room is available anytime after 3pm but not guaranteed for a time. What? Then we get to the room. The lobby obviously is gorgeous and remodeled but the room was like stepping into a vintage hole. This room was horrible. Green stained carpeting, the lowest bed I have ever sat on, a bathroom with a men's urinal toilet at an angle and mold in the walls along the tub and bathroom wall. Literally disgusting.
