This was my first visit to the Ambassador. I had heard there was one in Tulsa, but was never able to find it purely by sight. The reason is that it isn't quite downtown, but just across the US75/51 on the south side of downtown, yet still in the business district. It is about a seven block walk north to the heart of downtown, but that is what their shuttle is for. The rooms are quiet, spacious and nicely appointed. The beds are comfortable. The bathroom is spacious and modern. While some may think the location is inconvenient I didn't find it to be that way. The only thing that I thought wasn't truly up to par was the Chalkboard restaurant, but there were many great restaurants in downtown. I would stay here again.
We came into town to see Janet Jackson and stayed at the Ambassador. This was the 4th time we've stayed here and each time is more amazing than the last! Kristin was awesome and really went above and beyond when helping to make our reservation. She also left us with a list of suggestions of things we could do while we were in town. Every room we've stayed in is very spacious and the decor is beautiful and upscale, but not in a stuffy way. The staff of both the restaurant and the front desk are always so helpful and the free valet and shuttle is a plus considering we weren't very familiar with Tulsa. 2 thumbs up!
So...Tulsa in July. Coming from the San Francisco area, we got a few blank stares from our friends when we told them we were going to Tulsa (yes, the one in Oklahoma) for vacation in July. It didn't seem like the best time of year for this trip, but it was the only time that worked and we have friends to visit, so July it was! If I'm being honest, the weather was just as hot and humid as we were fearing, but we still found ourselves completely charmed by the city. The Ambassador was our cool oasis in the midst of the heat and a large reason why we enjoyed ourselves so much. We stayed one of their Hurley King Deluxe rooms. The room was spacious and well appointed. The bathroom was large and well lit. We had a lovely views of downtown Tulsa. The bed was so comfortable that we took a picture of the mattress label so that we could buy one when we got home. The only complaint - I wish it was located three or four blocks further north. Since that's pretty unlikely to happen, their shuttle service is a good compromise. I can't recommend this hotel enough. I know where we're going to be staying for our next visit to the area.
We stayed two nights in a king suite of this venerable, pristine, classy hotel and loved it. Like other Autograph properties in which we've stayed, this was unique. Originally built in the 1920s, it hosts all the modern amenities you would want in an upscale hotel, including a superb on-site restaurant (separate review), fitness center, free, secure, parking and free five-mile shuttle, at prices that are not so "big city" as other similar locations on the various US coasts. The decorations and furnishings are rich, including Dale Chihuly art work in the lobby, an in-room Keurig, over sized shower and heavenly bedding. Location was a plus, if not optimal. A mile walk (or free shuttle) downtown, and within the shuttle five-mile radius of Tulsa's two premier art museums, the Gilcrease and Philbrook. The only disappointment was conflicting information concerning the shuttle. In the morning the front desk attendants told us our dinner location would be no problem for the shuttle. Later in the afternoon, new attendants informed us that our restaurant choice was "not in range" of the shuttle's limits." Disappointed we went back to our room and checked the distance from the hotel - six miles, versus the limit of five. OK, so rules are rules, and lines must be drawn, but on a Labor Day weekend during which it appeared that the hotel was quite slow, not making a one-mile exception didn't fit with the rest of the experience. We decided to eat again at the hotel since it was good and convenient and we were leaving early the next morning. Highly recommend this property!
We were in Tulsa for an event over at the Expo Square. We had stayed at another hotel for more than a week and decided to treat ourselves to our last two nights at the Ambassador. Boy am I glad we did! The hotel is small, but don't let that fool you. The entire experience was on par with some of the trips we have take to St Regis or Ritz Carlton hotels. Our room was an oversized corner room that included a king bed, sitting area, small desk and an fun bathroom around the corner for the bedroom proper. The room full full of all sorts of great amenities - in room coffee service, bottled water, and tons of windows that opened up to downtown Tulsa. Room service at the hotel is really great and comes from the restaurant downstairs (TRY THE RESTAURANT!!!!) This isn't a restaurant review, the the risotto was amazing! The staff is super friendly and accommodating and they offer complimentary shuttle service in the downtown area - no Uber needed. Next time you are in Tulsa, be sure to check out the Ambassador.
The Ambassador Hotel rooms are spacious, beautifully decorated, and so comfortable. We loved staying here and the Chalkboard restaurant is fabulous! We are a breakfast, and dinner there and the service and food is way beyond what to expect at a hotel. Would go there just to eat anytime. The location is perfect for anything and the staff is so helpful and courteous. Highly recommend this awesome hotel!!
The hotel itself is beautiful and the rooms were as well. The staff was beyond pleasant and the room was quiet despite its age. Everything seems fresh and updated. Would recommend trying other places to eat in Tulsa aside from the restaurant downstairs...
Nice hotel and staff. Room furnishings were a bit worn. Landscapers woke us up at 6am w430pm when they started to trim. Bobby at the front desk was apologetic but basically told me there was nothing he could do. How about a late check out or send up breakfast.??.... It doesnt matter how nice the hotel if you cant get what you paid for...sleep! On the bright side, the Ed Sheeran concert last night was top notch!
My mother, her sausage dog, Pepper, and I just finished a 3 night stay at the Tulsa Ambassador. The staff could not have been more helpful and welcoming and the restaurant is excellent. Well worth a trip and particularly good if you are traveling with pets!
This lovely signature hotel, located in downtown Tulsa, was such a lovely stay. Friendly staff that greeted upon each arrival. The room was spacious and beautifully decorated with greys and splashes of yellow. The 1920's building has such charm, as does the beautiful lobby and the historical library located just off the lobby. The Chalkboad resturant, located a few steps down from the lobby, was the cherry on top! This quaint bar made for the perfect evening! Elaborate hand-crafted wood moldings and bar set a atmosphere where one might think "everybody knows your name". Marriott knows it's stuff!
