When it was built in 1926, The Ambassador was among the city’s first boutique hotels, and perhaps its most prominent. Over the years The Ambassador has hosted a wide array of celebrities, including Frank Sinatra, Marilyn Monroe, Bill Murray, David Bowie, and Harry Caray, many of whom ate at the hotel’s Pump Room Restaurant, and photos of whom are displayed in the basement. The Ambassador regained its historic name in 2017.
