"Decent stay."
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed December 04, 2018 NEW
Stayed here for 2 nights in Nov 2018. The hotel is in a really nice area, a short walk away from some shops and nice restaurants. The subway station is around 5-10min away and the walk to the centre of the city only takes around half an hour. We stayed in 7 other hotels in various different cities as part of our trip and the Ambassador was the cleanest of the lot. Decor is a bit dated: the wardrobe looks a bit cheap and there were a couple of cracked tiles in the bathroom but everything else was great. The hotel lobby was beautiful and a nice place for people watching. The staff were very pleasant and helpful and willing to help with luggage. I did have problems being woken up by noise in the mornings and would suggest avoiding the lower floors at the front of the hotel. The first morning there was a lot of beeping from vehicles reversing and deliveries being unloaded and the second morning there was a stationary bus parked right under our window for well over an hour with an engine running which was loud enough to wake both of us up and stop us going back to sleep.

"Older Hotel in the best neighborhood in Chicago Downtown!"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5
Reviewed November 23, 2018 NEW
It’s a Chicago downtown hotel so if you have a car, local parking is abysmal and valet is $67 a day! Staff are super! Friendly and accommodating. No coffee in the room but the bar in the room is full.. minimal ventilation in the bathroom. Lighting in the room is subdued. Room was pretty clean and the carpet was nice for a hotel. Water pressure was varied. outlet availability is adequate but not plentiful. It’s in one of the best neighborhoods in Chicago, so the area is great- safe and friendly. The main complaint I have is in the room I had the walls were paper thin! I could clearly hear conversations in the room next to mine.. it was so thin, it kinda felt like they were in the same room :) I would stay here again for a business trip to Chicago, but pass on a family stay.

Older hotel in safe residential area near the lake. Valet parking was $67, way too much for this hotel. Staff members were very friendly. The lobby and hotel are beautiful, but the style and elegance of the main floor doesn’t match the rooms. Our room was clean, but very dated... like a room and bathroom at your great grandma’s house. Might stay here again, but it’s time to renovate.

"Great hotel for the price and location!"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed November 15, 2018 NEW
Although the rooms were small, there was a lot of charm at the Ambassador Chicago. The staff was incredibly helpful when we asked about dining recommendations as well. Visit the restaurant on site for a great cocktail, and then make sure you head down stairs to view all the old photos of famous people who have visited the restaurant over the decades. Lots of history here! Also, very close to the lake. The walls were thin, and almost everyone in our group had a story to tell about their neighbor. That's my biggest complaint.
