“A true bargain”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 24, 2013

A great place to stay in Milwaukee bar none. Friendly, helpful staff. Rooms are large and very clean. The shuttle is the "icing on the cake" since it is free and takes you to downtown and many of the attractions. The food in the Envoy is also first-class. Can't say enough good things about the Ambassador.

Stayed one night on 1/19. The hotel is very nice with a great location especially if your seeing a concert at The Rave, it's right across the street. The hotel also has free parking for guests and runs a free shuttle to attractions in the area every hour. The rooms were clean and the staff was friendly and helpful!

This was our second stay here and the Mrs and I love it tremendously. The staff is very friendly and thoughtful and also engaging. Milwaukee is such a hidden gem and the food and the people make it very special. Everyone is so nice.

The hotel itself is wonderful. The lobby is a step back in time and the old style elevators are really neat. All the rooms are non-smoking and there is free parking as well as a free shuttle to just about any location in the downtown or surrounding areas. The hotel is just a couple minutes away from all the action downtown and nearby hot spots. There is usually plenty of parking during the weekends and if you have to pay the rates are very reasonable. Free parking on Sunday! Coming from Chicago where you have to pay an arm and a leg to park and there's so much traffic everywhere, this is a revelation.

We got the King room again and it is very spacious. The bed is comfy and the rooms are clean. The only quirk I would have is the vents in the rooms are quite dirty but it's no big deal. We were on the 7th floor and views are not great.

The bar is nicely stocked with great craft beer. Did I mention you're in Milwaukee...the beer is good. very good. I think the only hesitation to someone would be that it is a little further away from downtown than other hotels but fear not. The hotel has everything to make your stay comfy. Transportation, great in-house (Envoy) breakfast and brunch, super friendly staff all around and just a great looking art decco hotel.

Stay here and you won't regret it.

Room Tip: Try and get a corner room.

We stayed here for a baragin. The casino had a very cheap package so we selected to stay at the Ambassador. The lobby was just gorgeous. Our room was spacious and very clean. I work at a hotel myself, and am very picky when staying at other hotels. I had no complaints!! We will definitely stay again, when we are back in the area!!

My experience at the Ambassador Hotel was the Very Best experience, my wife an I had from any 5 star Hotel. It reminded she and I of the service we got when we went to Europe in March of 2010. I would highly recommend this hotel, too any and all individuals traveling to the Milwaukee area on business or pleasure. Please stay at the Ambassador Hotel, there beds are very comfortable, rooms are excceptionally clean and the service is superior. I can't say enough about the experience, we had 5 star all day long, make no mistake about it, I live in Clearwater FL, and the only bad experience we had was with the weather, it was FREEZZING!!! LOL. Great Job, to the staff at the Ambassador Hotel, job well done. I will be back, NOT IN THE WINTER :-)

Room Tip: Corner Suites are large and much more quieter

Stayed here 1 night before a Marquette tour. Great room. Free shuttle was very convenient since it was snowing out and had little desire to drive. Breakfast in hotel was great....cinnamon French toast was delicious !

Stayed December 2012, traveled with family

We stayed here on Christmas night. Upon Check-in, we were upgraded to a room with a King sized bed. The room was large, the bed was comfortable, and the staff members were gracious. With a rate of $56 on Hotwire, you can't beat the Ambassador!
