We truly enjoyed every moment of our stay at this hotel, from the moment we walked in to checkout. Staff is friendly and helpful. The shuttle driver, Brian, was top notch. Even showed us where some of the breweries were. The hotel is historic; feels as if you have walked back in time when you walk in. There was ample... More

The staff were very friendly and willing to help me with my stay in Milwaukee. Be warned though; you will pay for this beautiful hotel. The best deal we found for a family of 4 was $150, and that doesn't cover the extra twenty for parking. Wifi went in and out all day and night. It is located close enough... More

This hotel is an older building but don't let that deter you. There aren't fancy amenities of glamorous surroundings, but the hotel is clean, historic, charming, and comfortable! The bed (king suite) was comfortable but the pillows were very hard and---these really do need to be replaced! The king suite room was large enough to hold four women without being... More

My company reserved and prepaid for two rooms for a business trip midweek. Got to the hotel at 10:30pm after 2 hour delay on flight and the front desk said, "Sorry, we only have one room. We over-booked" with no other arrangements made. I assume this doesn't happen often but my main issue is they knew this had happened and... More

This hotel has a hipster vibe that you just can't get a the big chains. The restoration of this Art Deco gem has created an inviting lobby with a fabulous bar and romantic restaurant. The hotel staff was friendly and helpful with a genuine interest in orienting us to Milwaukee. Our room (404) was huge although the bathroom was tight.... More

The Ambassador Hotel is a beautiful, old hotel. The art deco look is unique. We were happy with our room after asking for something away from the elevator, which was happily accommodated by the desk. We never heard any hallway sounds. The room was clean and neat, with a very comfortable bed. The Aveda products are a nice touch. It's... More

Stayed at the Ambassador on a last minute trip to Milwaukee. Sadly our room (315) was an adjoining one. Walls seem to be thin and the noise kept us up all night. A little creepy too when you hear someone trying to open your door at 3:00 am. The HVAC system was not working correctly either.

We stayed here one Saturday night for a Summerfest concert. We actually walked to the Fest venue - took about an hour but it was a pleasant stroll through the Marquette campus and the river area. They have a shuttle that drives both ways and we used that for the return trip. The décor of the hotel is art deco,... More

I chose this hotel primarily because it's close to Summerfest and has a free shuttle. They told me the shuttle would be available half past every hour, on a first come, first serve basis. We arrived at 5:15 to catch the 5:30pm shuttle and had no problem getting a spot. The driver warned us that Milwaukee public transportation workers were... More

Overall I have to give the hotel three stars. I want to give it four stars but unfortunately it just falls short enough in certain areas that it doesn't deserve the fourth star. The hotel is a dedicated restoration and revitalization of an old hotel in Milwaukee. The lobby is beautiful and the Art Deco has been restored. Our king... More
