Ambassador Hotel Tulsa, Autograph Collection

So rare to find these two adjectives in a hotel: luxury and friendly. So many hotels get luxury mixed up with "snooty" and condescending. But not the Ambassador. The ten-floor hotel was built in the 1920s and still retains its Mediterranean theme and charm. The hotel has a small, homey lobby with comfy seating and a nice fireplace (if I were another type of man, I might be comfortable saying "quaint"). However the updated, rooms are anything but small, with large windows and a nice seating area, you have plenty of space for 2 or 3 guests. The real gem of the hotel is their hotel staff: attentive, courteous and a sincere desire to assist you in anyway possible. The self-parking lot is located just behind the building, steps away from the hotel elevators. No need to pay for expensive valet parking, which at other hotels can be as much as $30 to $40 a night. The Chalkboard restaurant is located in the basement. I have only eaten there for breakfast and lunch and have enjoyed both. I am looking forward to having dinner there, at some point. There really is no other place to stay in Tulsa, book early, as rooms do fill up.

We chose the Ambassador Hotel for our wedding and we were amazed at the incredible service. For two people who have traveled a lot, we have experienced the good and the bad that hotels can offer and the Ambassador in Tulsa exceeded our expectations in major ways! Not only did they accommodate our guests needs but ours as the Bride and Groom as well. Our reservations were seamless, check in was easy, and the staff was so incredibly pleasant. The rooms were impeccable! I (bride) stayed in the corner king room to utilize the floor to ceiling mirror and the lighting from the windows and it was perfect. The photos are phenomenal from that morning! In addition, Mary made sure that we had the hotel shuttle scheduled for the times needed for the wedding and all guests received our welcome packages as they checked in. Again, Mary and her staff went above and beyond for us and we will definitely be back to the Ambassador many times as they treated us right! Thank you to all!

Stayed one night on family road trip and really enjoyed this hotel. We arrived about 8 pm and checked out around 8 am so a very limited experience but would love to have spent more time here. Room was incredibly spacious and well appointed. Bed was great. A true luxury hotel in Tulsa. Staff very friendly. This hotel is a real gem and I'd stay here again. Because of our late arrival, we ordered room service. Food was very good, if not a little overpriced.

It is such a pleasure to be able to stay in an historic hotel that has been so thoughtfully and well renovated. And for the price, it is a terrific bargain. We had a corner King, which was large and well designed. The separation of the bathroom from the sleeping quarters by a small hall was a very nice touch. The room was bright, the bed and the linens very nice and the water pressure in the shower was outstanding. Staff were friendly and helpful. Our only complaint is that like so many modern hotels, there is a lack of lighting for reading when sitting anywhere but the bed.

From check in to check out, we couldn't have been happier! If you are headed to Tulsa be sure to check out the Ambassador Hotel. It checked off all the boxes: clean, friendly, large rooms, comfortable beds, great service and wonderful food onsite! Plus just a short drive to just about anywhere. The rooms/suites were large and clean with plenty of room to spread out. The beds were as Goldilocks would say, "just right"! It looked like rain one day and the front desk went out of his way to find me an umbrella to use! Definitely will go back.

Stayed here twice this year and really love it. Clean, quiet (at least on weekends) and convenient. Staff is professional, warm and welcoming. Appreciate the history of the building and The Chalkboard is a nice place to end the day with a drink at the bar.

This hotel was a great respite after spending 3 architecturally fascinating but uncomfortable nights at Frank Lloyd Wright's Inn at Price Tower in Bartlesville. Unlike Price Tower, this hotel had all the amenities one normally expects. This historic hotel was built by General Patrick Hurley in 1929 as an extended stay hotel where oil barons could stay while their mansions were being built. Over the years it became an apartment hotel, then a senior citizen's home, eventually closing in 1987. It was purchased by developer Paul Coury in the 1990's, was extensively renovated/restored and reopened in 1999. There are 3 other Ambassador hotels in the Midwest. This one is also part of Marriott's Autograph Collection, so you get Marriott Rewards and perks. I arrived before noon, but a room was available. The front desk staff were always friendly and smiling whenever you passed by. The lobby is smallish but elegant and grand, like a plush living room. There's a little alcove that serves as a business centre. There is a second business centre in the Hurley Library, a quaint room just off the lobby, as well as a few meeting rooms. The hotel's restaurant, The Chalkboard, is on the lower level. There's a fair-sized fitness centre on the top (9th) floor. The hotel's structure is a simple rectangle with only 7 rooms per floor. My room, an Executive King, was very spacious, with 4 windows letting in abundant natural light. The bed was quite comfy. There was a chaise lounge, an easy chair desk, flat screen TV and cart with minibar items, plus water and a coffee machine. The bathroom had a open area with the sink and closet (with safe); a separate room held the WC and large stone shower. Wifi was fast and free. Small niggles: the lighting in the sink area could have been brighter, there was no lamp by the easy chair, and the built-in desk area was a bit cramped. The hotel's location is a bit south of Downtown. They have a complimentary SUV shuttle that can go to the airport and within a 5 mile radius. If you have a car, there's a free lot right next to the hotel, with additional parking across the street. Newspapers (USA Today, Wall Street Journal, a Tulsa paper) are stacked in the lobby. I dined at The Chalkboard twice--dinner and breakfast. The restaurant is one of several owned and managed by a brother-sister team. It has a casual and popular bar area and a slightly more formal dining room. There's an additional dining room half a floor lower, which looks like a wine cellar. Dinner was quite good. Although there were chalkboard specials, I chose staples from the menu: a sweet and sour Brussels sprout starter with Beef Wellington as my main. This may have been my first time having Beef Wellington, a classic dish where a filet mignon is covered with pate, duxelles and dijon, then wrapped in puff pastry. I've usually seen an entire filet prepared thusly, then sliced, but here an individual piece of filet was prepared and served like a large meat pastry. Quite delicious, but all that moisture naturally makes the puff pastry lose its crispness and flakiness quickly. Dessert was fresh berries with lemon coulis and mascarpone. My server was knowledgeable and friendly, but would disappear for long periods of time. Breakfast the next morning was okay. My Marriott status entitled me to a free Continental breakfast, but I ordered an omelette and paid the difference. The omelette was fine, but there was only one piece of toast, and I didn't like how the jam/jelly were those little prepackaged things from Smuckers. They should have been served in little ramekins like the ketchup and butter were. And service was lackluster, perfunctory. I only spent half a day in Tulsa, since I came to Oklahoma primarily for Frank Lloyd Wright and the Pioneer Woman in Bartlesville and Pawhuska respectively. I think I'd spend more time in Tulsa next time, and the Ambassador would be a nice home base.

We stayed a few weeks ago and love the hotel. The restaurant was not that great for breakfast as the waitresses we had seemed like they didn't want to be there. We are trying it again tomorrow but wanted to warn people to bypass their website and just call the property directly and save some grief. I tried 3 times to book the room on their website for $188.00 but it kept changing my dates. I just decided to call instead in after only 3 minutes the rate changed by $10.00 and I was told too bad. I'm going to try the restaurant again because everyone says its great. I just think the rate change every 5 minutes is petty and annoying.

I recently visited this hotel and after having a bottle of body wash explode in my suitcase and cover all of my clothes, Brenda D. went above and beyond expectations to help me by personally running my clothes through the wash 3 times to get the soap out. In addition to that exceptional service the hotel is great and very comfortable. Thank you again Brenda! Jason

Very nice boutique hotel. Free parking. Free water at check in. Great room, almost an apartment. The seperate rooms. No complaints. Shower huge. Toilet flushes really fast. Kuerig in room. Just nothing around to walk to.
