Ambassador Chicago

Ambassador Chicago, North State Parkway, Chicago, IL, United States

 

This former Jazz Age hotel has been revamped and rebranded for today's times, but not without paying homage to its roaring 20's roots. Hotel Ambassador Chicago was once filled with A-list guests, including Frank Sinatra, Humphrey Bogart, Marilyn Monroe and Lauren Bacall.

The history of jazz and entertainment has clearly left its imprint on the halls, and Ambassador Chicago combines this sense of nostalgia with touches of modern hospitality. Focused around affordable luxury, Ambassador Chicago provides stylish ambiance and iconic boutique lodging. A little bit 1930s and a little bit 2017, the balance has been found.
