All the staff were great and very helpful and friendly. Beautiful common area off the lobby. Location is terrific. Only minus is dated plumbing. Water pools in shower due to dip in middle and drain at end. We would definitely go back.

The Ambrose has a lovely lobby which opens out onto a wonderful patio. The staff is great and could not be more helpful. Rooms are spacious and well acquitted. Enjoyed the complimentary happy hour. We did miss what had been a sumptuous buffet breakfast, which was not offered due to COVID.

The facilitybis very homey however I think still overpriced. There could be a few upgrades that can be done like even coffee in the room instead of going to the lobby to get some.
