First time to Chicago. The Ambassador was recommended by my sister who has stayed there many times. We loved the neighborhood. Lots of great shopping and restaurants. The staff were always helpful and friendly.

Ambassador Chicago is conveniently located in the Gold Coast, pretty near to the Magnificent Mile. Small, yet comfortable. Rooms are clean, neat, and have a warm atmosphere. I’m definitely coming back.
