Highlight: Really nice beds Lowlights: No closet....not even a coat rack.....NOT EVEN A HOOK ON THE WALL TO HANG MY SUIT!!! Noisy air conditioner that shuts off when room is unoccupied. That means returning to a room where the temperature is over 80. Very unappealing lobby. Was this hotel a former YMCA?? No one on duty in the lobby at... More

Was hoodwinked into staying at the Ambassador in Milwaukee for a business trip. Hyatt was booked so, got stuck here. First off, location is a tad on the seedy side. There were two guys standing around at all times in front of the place that eventually came to find out were waiting for their lady friend to finish her "business"... More

The Ambassador Inn was a great choice for my friends and I as we were looking for a place in the city that wouldn't break the bank and we didn't want to stay in the suburbs. I liked the rooms a lot and the bed was super comfy, but the lobby and the building itself is nothing to write home... More

I am a business traveler and travel at least once a week to Chicago/Milwaukee/Detroit/NYC. I normally use Hotwire to save on company costs. Never again! Hotwire guarantees a room and it is not necessary to reconfirm your reservation, since afterall, they charge your credit in full at the time of booking. To my surprise, after my delayed flight I get... More

This hotel is in the worst part of Milwaukee, and the staff will tell you that when you check in. We were worried about our car being stolen from the parking lot. On our second night, we received a call from the staff wanting to relocate us to the hotel across the street. Customer service is deplorable.

We stayed here during Summerfest. The location was far enough away to lower the price, but close enough that it didn't take long to get to the Lakefront. They offered a free shuttle which was great. And they have free parking which is hard to find in downtown Milwaukee. The free breakfast was kind of a joke. There was only... More

My daughters booked a room for my birthday weekend for a trip to the casino for the three of us. They were all excited thinking they got such a great deal with a $69.99 room rate. Boy were we shocked to find out that all the nice pictures and amenities listed on our email confirmation were of the property across... More

My wife and I drove four hours to Milwaukee for a weekend getaway. I had researched other hotels and seriously considered staying at the Ambassador Hotel for its ambeince, ammenities, and location. I had accidentally come across reviews for the Inn, which is coincidentally, right across the street from the hotel. In an effort to save a few bucks (approximately... More

I love the Ambassador Inn! Can't stay anywhere else now. Great staff, comfortable beds, very clean, good continental breakfast (but lacked fresh fruit). Can use the business center across the street at the Fabulous Ambassador Hotel. We went across the street all the time- to the cafe, the Envoy bar and restaurant. All great. Excellent shuttle service- go anywhere downtown.... More
