I stayed at this hotel for one night, coming in for Summerfest. The hotel shuttle picked me up at the Amtrak station and brought me right to the hotel for no charge (other than the two dollars I tipped the driver). The hotel lobby itself is quaint and picturesque and you can imagine it being the same in the 1920's.... More

We came in for Summerfest and stayed two nights. Got in very late the first night and my reservation (made through a travel website) was messed up. The woman on duty was very helpful and got me fixed right up. Charming older hotel that has been fixed up nicely. Very friendly staff. Easy parking and close to downtown. Spacious room... More

the Ambassador is an Art Deco hotel near Marquette University. we stayed three nights recently when we visited Summerfest in Milwaukee. We payed almost $250 per night for a small, plain room which was attached via a door to what I can assume was the "main" hotel room, meant for adults. I'm thinking we were in the attached room meant... More

Cool Hotel. Basically just off Marquette campus. Stayed here during Summerfest2015. It's a bit of a poke, but within walking distance to the action downtown. They also had a free shuttle that would take us where we needed to go. That was a huge bonus. Had a nice and clean room. The bar/restaurant downstairs was actually very nice. the food... More

On our way from Chicago to Milwaukee to check out the Harley Davidson museum, we stayed at the Ambassador Hotel near Marquette University. Cool historic hotel. We were upgraded to a bigger room with a hot tub. Love the old elevator. Nice room. Only thing we didn't like was the cable channel selection (and the remote guide), not that we... More

Recently stayed at the Ambassador on a business trip to Milwaukee. I was only there one night, but wished I could have stayed longer. It is a lovely hotel -- beautifully renovated in art deco style. The rooms are very large and very nice and the staff was great.

What's important for a one-night stay? Quiet room, good bed, comfortable clean room with plenty of space, clean bathroom, security. The Ambassador is an older hotel that has been upgraded. It would be good for a several night stay, not just one as our's was. We were in town for a wedding. The hotel provided free shuttle service to and... More

The rooms are very large and the decor appears to be genuine art deco. The bar and restaurant have a good atmosphere, the beds were comfortable, the hallways quiet, and overall, the hotel stay was great.

Lovely, mix art Deco style, old and new, huge very comfortable room....you say wow when you walk in...Yes, the shuttle is complimentary to where you want to go...that's unheard of.. Happy hour deal is... More
