Kids and friends went up to the dells for a few days and decided to swing thru for a brewers game. Found this hotel online expedia and pulled the trigger. Place is well kept, staff was friendly and rooms were very spacious. I would definitely stay here again if looking for a spot in Milwaukee.

Very unique hotel. I loved the fact that they had their own private parking lot. Very nice, quiet, peaceful stay. All I wanted to do after the Brewers opener was get in a comfy room with my daughter. Was everything I wanted it to be...just wish I had a mini fridge for my soda LOL

The hotel had great decor and a really nice old time feel!! The room we stayed in was unique compared to other hotels we have stayed in before. There was framed mirrors, crown molding, and windows that opened to let fresh air in. Over all we had a great time and would go back in a heartbeat!

LOVE this hotel. Art Deco Style, right downtown, free shuttle service every half hour. Room was good, staff was very friendly and helpful with recommendations. Lots of options for dining--room service, restaurant (Envoy), popular bar (with 1928 prices during happy hour), and a cafe spot for breakfast needs. Free parking on site in a parking structure. Loved it and would... More

This is NOWHERE near a 4star hotel; please note you will be RUDELY surprised to find dirty sheets, stained carpets, extremely thin walls, dirty counters, limited customer service, rotten looking paint, and a 9am housing keeper knock to clean the room topped with a 20 dollar parking fee. I had 6 people signed up to stay in this hotel and... More

The housekeeping staff at the Ambassador takes great pride in providing some of the cleanest rooms available in Milwaukee. In fact, our guests rave about how clean and fresh our accommodations are. None of these issues were reported to our staff during the stay. We have housekeeping on staff throughout the day and night and they would never ask a... More

they have excellent food for room service, comfortable beds and room, including some with jacuzzi hot tub. Nice for relaxing. They had old elevators last time i was there and we got trapped, so if they have not upgraded, i would take the stairs or ask if theres a room on the main floor.

Thank you for staying with us. Yes, the mechanicals of our elevators were replaced recently, without taking away the art deco charm of the original bronze clad doors. Thank you for highlighting our room service offering. It is very popular among our guests. More

The Ambassador is located within walking distance of Marquette University and about 20 blocks west of the business and retail center of Milwaukee. The hotel's free shuttle service efficiently links to many restaurants, shopping, and attractions. Combine this with the Envoy restaurant and the Café and the renovated Art Deco style makes for a pleasant stay at a good value

Very nice hotel in downtown Milwaukee. The experience was great, the staff was so friendly and very very helpful. They were probably the best staff workers I've ever experienced at a hotel. There hotels had an older feel to it and was very neat looking. There was a bar right in the hotel which was great. They have a free... More
