“Great Hotel. Different from the usual cookie cutter property.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 10, 2012

Very nice staff. Shuttle service is outstanding. Rooms are very large. Great to stay in a hotel with lots of character. Would definitely return!

We enjoyed our stay at the Ambassador Hotel. The shuttle service was great and the drivers were friendly and helpful. The room was clean. The only complaint that I have is that the air conditioning couln't keep up with the heat- but it was 90-100 outside.

My girlfriend and I were there only for one night, but we enjoyed our short stay in this Art Deco beauty.
The hotel must have been recently renovated, because it looked fantastic in all the decor and the details.
The room was spacious and clean, the bed very comfortable.
The hotel is locate west of the Marquette University campus, and it's not that close to the Milwaukee downtown area. However, there is a free shuttle service to the downtown area.

We had a quick stay at the Ambassador Hotel last week; took the ferry from Michigan so didn't get to the hotel until 1 a.m. and left by 9 a.m. It was a lovely hotel; staff was friendly; they have a coffee shop that was good for breakfast. Room was comfy. Our bathroom was handicapped friendly - not sure if all the showers are like that. It was odd only because I hadn't seen that before and it's not something we requested. I didn't realize it was so far away from downtown (on a main street, but still a ways away) but it worked out just fine. They offer shuttles, although we didn't use them. They've turned an old building modern so it has charm but still more updated ammenities.

Very clean. Excellent customer service. Complimentary shuttles to just about anywhere in the city! The staff were very friendly and more than helpful. The room was HUGE, and couldn't have been more comfortable!

We've stayed at the ambassador several times. We like to go to concerts in Milwaukee. They have shuttles to downtown/summerfest. The renovation is great...keeps with the original old fashioned style of the very old building. Very good service. Everything you need. Comfortable beds. Clean. Nice bar and coffe shop on site. Plenty of secure free parking. Be prepared the neighborhood is a little rough. Haven't tried the restaurant.
