I stayed here for a couple of days in July. The room was a good size. Bed was comfortable. TV was modern. The bathroom was a little old. The main reception is fine but was often unmanned. I had dinner in the bar one evening and the food was very good - the raspberry salad followed by the lobster pasta.... More

Purchased bed and breakfast package but received breakfast voucher for only one day. Vouchers for second day breakfast were not sent to room as promised (twice). Will look for other hotels for my next trip.

Thoroughly enjoyed my stay! Was here to drop off my daughter for the start of her 1st yr @ Marquette. Very convenient to the school. Staff was very friendly and the Deco cafe was a pleasant surprise! I hope to continue to stay @ The Ambassador when I visit Milwaukee again.

Our most recent stay was our third visit to this unique hotel. It is convenient to Marquette University, where our daughter is a sophomore. We have dined at the Envoy, which was great. The Caffe Deco is perfect for a quick coffee & breakfast. The rooms are spacious, clean, and well-equipped. For a city hotel, it is surprisingly quiet. We... More

Our first stay in downtown Milwaukee and the Ambassador was perfect! Super convenient, close to Marquette and felt very safe going to and from the hotel. Can't wait to return! Bit of a walk to the RIverwalk but that was fine with us.

We really enjoyed the hotel and the shuttle service. My only complaint was the mattress as my husband and I both awoke to sore backs. I think they need to get some memory foam for the beds. Otherwise, everything was great.

I expected better since they gave this hotel 4 stars but staff was bad and room had holes on wallpaper and tub was clogged. Call room services and no one came up to fix it. We checked out early. I would never stay at this hotel again

The room was great. The only thing I found confusing was they had refrigerators in the room that were stocked with beer that you had to pay for. I understand that. But you couldn't put your own refrigerated items in. Food was good and staff was helpful.

I chose the hotel to have a reunion with an old friend. Spending it in such a clean friendly historic space was ideal. The staff were exceptional. Our Sunday brunch was one of the best I've had. Our room was HUGE.
