Located in the Gold Coast, the stylish Ambassador Chicago hotel is in "a great neighborhood to stay in and feel like a wealthy Chicagoan" (Frommer's). Guest rooms at this hotel are outfitted in a minimalist cream and white color palette with bright pinewood accents, and features plush bedding, flat-panel TVs, marble accented bathrooms and complimentary Wi-Fi throughout the property.

Close to the hotel you'll find the clubs and lounges of Rush Street, the high-end boutiques of Oak and Walton Streets and during summer, the see-and-be-seen Oak Street Beach -- but thanks to being a couple blocks removed from main thoroughfares, the Ambassador Chicago still delivers a calm, relaxed neighborhood feel when you walk out the front door.

From the Press: 
  • "The circa-1926 hotel retains an old-school glamour from its chandeliers to its black-and-white photos of former guests like Frank Sinatra" --

Two downsides: 1) no in-room coffee. I have come to expect that everywhere except Las Vegas. Please, I beg you, give me a coffee maker in the room. construction in the lobby did not make a great first impression. I know that will be remedied soon. Overall, great experience. Staff was outstanding.
