“Equisite Art Deco Gem downtown Wilwaukee”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2011

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.

Lack of a pool area and small rooms make this Hotel a 3.5 star. Good service from the maid,front desk, bartenders and restaurant were big plus's. We paid $85.00 per night so I thought it was a great value. It just is not 4 STARS.

I only stayed at the Ambassador with my husband for one night. Our room was very large with a seating area. The bathroom was small, but there was a second sink outside the bathroom. Free parking in hotel garage is a definite plus. Did notice some stains on the rug and the blanket in the closet was stained as well. The elevators are really neat and you open a door to get in and out of the elevator. Location was far from the "downtown". Area seems a little shady, but we walked to and from Real Chilli without a problem. Lots of students around this area too. If you want to be around the downtown "action", this is not the hotel for you. But it is a nice place to stay.
