With a rich history rooted in Chicago’s Jazz Age, Ambassador Chicago is the city’s original boutique hotel dating back to 1926. Located in the heart of the Gold Coast, the iconic property has hosted the who’s who of the 20th and 21st centuries, having served as a local beacon to countless celebrities. Uniquely individual, Ambassador Chicago is nestled among graceful mansions in a quiet, gilded neighborhood tucked into the center of the Windy City.
Offering incredible views of Lake Michigan, Ambassador Chicago is located within walking distance to Michigan Avenue and Oak Street. With 279 spacious guestrooms, featuring half an inventory of suites named after celebrities who frequented the hotel, plus an all new 24-hour fitness center, Ambassador Chicago maintains its distinct and legendary character while offering guests an authentic Chicago experience.
Dining options include the The Ambassador Room, formerly known as the iconic Pump Room, and The Library that gives old-school English vibes. Ambassador Chicago leans into the classic Hollywood royalty lifestyle, and provides thoughtful programming and amenities curated by local artisans and chefs.
