Why We Love This Hotel

  • The hotel underwent a top-to-bottom renovation in 2017 — nowadays, you'll find chic all-white interior décor and trendy low-slung bedding in guest rooms with killer views of the Gold Coast
  • The on-site restaurant (formerly the iconic Pump Room) was also reimagined as the Ambassador Room; here, you'll find hand-made pastas and a solid roster of craft cocktails
  • Let's not forget the location — from its Gold Coast address, the Ambassador is walkable to top sites, including Mag Mile and the John Hancock, Oak Street Beach and Lincoln Park Zoo (which, by the way, is free to enter)
  • Stay with confidence — read more about the hotel's enhanced safety and cleaning procedures

We booked a room with two queen beds but the rooms were not queens they were full so we had to move to a suite with a king bed and a pull out couch cost an additional $40 a night.

The bathrooms are tiny, beds are real low to the floor just not a great room-however, the people who work at the hotel are all really nice and helpful. What was once a grand hotel is no longer

Great hotel. Beds are very comfy. Staff was extremely pleasant. However I feel coffee should be complimentary...

Well, we checked the rates and were very disappointed to see the actual hotel rate was $86, when we paid $99. I have never really checked this before, and we've used TZOO plenty of times. Other than that, I was pleased with the entire experience.

Had elderly MIL with us. Small bathroom, tall and deep bathtub only. All furniture was low to ground making it difficult for here.

We came for 2 days of Christmas shopping in Chicago and chose the Ambassador for our stay. It was much farther from the Michigan Ave. shops than we thought it would be. There was no ambiance as far as the room was concerned. It was stark white, beds were very low to the floor, bathroom very small. Everything was very clean and the staff were all very nice. Although we will not go back, I would never tell anyone not to stay here. It just was not the right fit for us.

Each time we walked into the foyer we were hit with an obnoxious sweet, flowery scent, particularly noticeable when coming in off the street. We were sure they were trying to cover up an unpleasant oder. KUDOS TO THE KITCHEN!!! Our breakfasts were delicious - best Avocado Toast ever. Thank you.
