Overview

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" -- Oyster.com

The room was clean, and I liked the soaps they used at the hotel.
Other Comments
Our room was on the 9th floor. We tried to adjust the temperature in the room several times, because it was hot. Despite changing the temperature setting to cooler on the thermostat, the room temp stayed at 75 degrees the whole 2 days we stayed. We mentioned this to the front desk, but they didn't offer a solution or apologize for the inconvenience. Also, there are not ample signs to know where to park or where the valet is upon arrival near the hotel.

The neighborhood was very nice and close to shopping. The hotel is older but well maintained. We asked for extra towels and a repair in the bathroom and housekeeping responded immediately.
