We stayed at the Ambassador Hotel while in town to see a concert at the Eagle's Club/Rave Club across the street. This worked well for us because we could park our car at the Ambassador for free and walk to the venue. Otherwise, venue parking would have been $25+. This hotel is celebrating their 85th anniversary this year. I was impressed with the beauty of this hotel! It is immaculate and decor is true to period, from the flooring to the light fixtures, even the elevators were cool! The room was just as lovely, but had all of the luxuries that we enjoy in a nice hotel room. The beds were comfortable and the rooms were very spacious. We had dinner in the restaurant. The food was very good (be sure to get the french fries) and the prices were not outrageous. The wait staff was very friendly and helpful and I enjoyed carrying on a conversation with them. We had breakfast in the Starbucks that is in the building and that staff was equally as attentive. The hotel is in the Marquette University area. I am not sure that I would be walking around at night in that area but if you are just looking for a beautiful hotel at a reasonable price, this is the place to stay!
