My family of 4 stayed at this hotel this past week and it is a little gem in the middle of the Marquette University area of Milwaukee. The deco style hotel is quite old but is still modern enough to please everyone. Once you walk inside you are welcomed by a restaurant on one side and a bar on the other. The lobby pumps out a rather pleasant scent of which the origins are unknown but I found myself looking forward to returning each evening to catch a whiff. The rooms are very spacious and inviting. The beds are extremely comfortable; I don't remember sleeping that well at a hotel in a long time. The only complaint I would have is the walls are a bit thin; we were next to the elevator and it was a tad loud in the night. That wouldn't scare me away - I would happily stay here again.
The hotel staff was courteous, helpful and attentive. The location is also close to downtown and the older areas of Milwaukee. Parking is free to hotel guests and they also have a free shuttle that runs daily. Another perk here is free wi-fi - not easy to find in nicer hotels. The restaurant has a limited menu but Milwaukee boasts some great eateries within a short distance. I highly recommend the Ambassador if you are looking for comfort, value and convenience.
