“DEFINITELY WILL BE BACK!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2011

If you're looking for a nice place to stay in Milwaukee on a budget this hotel will exceed your needs!!! We stayed 1 night and I couldn't ask for anything else. Although the hotel was not exactly downtown it was close enough to everything. The FREE Hotel Shuttle is a HUGE plus... They took us to the Casino and after calling for a pick up... the shuttle was there in 10 minutes. The staff was extremely friendly.... room service... quick and efficient! I will definitely be back!

This hotel was a pleasure to stay at. We had a group rate and found everything as promised. Some of the exterior and all of the main floor is a visual treat - with the Art Deco style in use throughout. The room was large - no closet, only an armoire. Bathroom was from the 20's, with updated fixtures. A second sink was in the large bedroom.

We were not advised of a "master switch" for electrical power in the room. Until we found it and turned it on, no lights, etc. The heat unit had some strange traits - it seemed to turn itself down when we left the room. And the temperature setting could not be make lower than 68. No big problem - just a puzzle. And when the service staff turned off the master switch after cleaning, my computer ran on its battery until it ran out. Had to re-charge it upon my return.

The beds were very comfortable - nice bedding.

My husband and I with another couple recently went to a Cheap Trick concert at Powtawanimi Casino in downtown Milwaukee, WI. We booked the rooms thru the casino website based on rate and reviews. The Ambassador Hotel is an art deco hotel that has been renovated to its past glory. It was an outstanding experience; the rooms were very large, extremely clean and well appointed with a large flat screeen TV and Aveeda spa products. The staff was very helpful. They provided complimentary shuttle service to the casino and other points downtown. When we checked out Sunday morning, I asked the front desk if they could recommend someplace for breakfast (although they provide a large buffet we were looking for a simpler meal). They suggested a diner 3 doors up (Michaels) which was also a fantastic deal. We will definitly be back and look forward to going to more events in Milwaukee and recommending this hotel to our friends.

The Ambassador Hotel is a true diamond in the rough! It's elegant and beautiful and upscale. The preservation of the hotel is amazing and the staff is friendly, helpful and available at anytime. The rooms are gorgeous, clean and roomy. Envoy has some of the best food around and the dining experinece is so much nicer then any generic hotel.

The rooms are spacious with all the amenities necessary for business or travel. The beds are extremely comfortable with luxurious linens .
The food in the restaurant was excellent for all meals throught the day. The snack bar was good as well.
They are close to downtown Milwaukee with a shuttle that will take you anywhere you would like to go and pick you up at a designated time. Awesome experience.

I stayed in one of the whirlpool suites and was extremely impressed with the atmosphere. I was more than satisied with the cleanliness, room service, restaurant, and bar. The location offers easy access to downtown city entertainment and sights. the shuttle offered convenience and ease of transportation.

From the outside it looks iffy- an old building- but step inside. It is a nicely restored art deco hotel which had everything that I look for in a room. Thermostat- a great bed- and most importantly a wonderful night sleep. We spent the money on the whirlpool- i made the mistake of showing my wife a picture of the room. My god- that room was great. The only negative- its right by Marquette- and on a Friday night- people drink- and we were woken up by a drunk guy running head first into the elevator. They should probably walk the halls on weekend- but that was a quick occurrence. I will be back.
