We were in town for the Sturgill Simpson concert and stayed one night. They gave us a room upgrade for only $10, the room was HUGE, very clean and very quiet. They also run a hotel shuttle that will come pick you up at locations, within certain distances, and bring you back to the hotel for no charge. The staff... More

Sam the Shuttle bus driver was fantastic! Pleasure to meet. Engaged in a great conversation that I'll remember for a life time. We had dinner at the Envoy hotel dining. Food was great, service not so much, our waiter could have been a bit more attentive having in mind besides us there was just one more table in the entire... More

Stayed here on July 16-17. Upon arrival was nervous as the area looks sketchy but once you enter the hotel it is quite nice and nicely decorated. Parking in ramp, which was nice. We have 2 small children and both enjoyed the room. The room was quite large and beds comfy. We had a small issue with the adjoining room... More

The hotel bar is an old school and during summer fest was buzzing with people and generally had a great vibe. The art deco and historical features of this hotel really was great and really adds a great deal of character to this Iconic Milwaukee establishment. The front desk staff at this hotel was unwelcoming, confused and showed little to... More

Thank you for the compliments in the beginning of your review. We apologize that you were disappointed with our Front Desk Staff. In the interest of being 100% honest, our desk staff likely was not running as efficiently as usual. We were in the midst of changing our property management system (the software used to make reservations, check people in,... More

We have stayed here before and returned on our way to Chicago. The rooms are very nice and although the location is a little bit too far west for us, it is a great hotel. The staff is wonderful. We were upgraded to a suite and it was beautiful and very comfortable – nice place, and affordable.

The hotel was old but fairly well maintained. I would not call it a 4 star hotel. Our problem had to do with the shuttle pick up after a day of being at Summerfest. We were told that the shuttle would be at the designated pickup area every half hour, so we were there a little before midnight. I decided... More

Thank you for your feedback. Our shuttle service is a complimentary, "first come, first served" service. We do our best to communicate how the shuttle works upon check-in verbally, through an insert in the key packets, within the guest room directory and via the shuttle drivers. When Summerfest closes (at midnight) there are approximately 20,000-50,000 people attempting to exit the... More

We sat downstairs and had drinks with another couple the bartender was very rude to everyone. She rolled her eyes at customers multiple times and made comments under her breath about customers. If you cannot deal with the public in an appropriate manner, you need to find a different job. It's never acceptable to make fun of customers, treat customers... More

Brandy Clark was fantastic. The Ambassador was close to the Rave, just across the street. The Bar was reasonable and the bartender pleasent. The room had a nice view of the lake but be sure to get an upper floor.

This is my hotel for Summerfest over the years. Away from all drunks from the hotels dowtown. It is an older hotel with all the amenities of modern living. The decor is from the past which I think befits it's history. Staff are helpful, but can use some more enthusiasm. The rooms are a good size if you get the... More
