“Loving that Art Deco!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 25, 2014

The Ambassador Hotel is wonderfully remodeled to bring out all the best qualities of its era and provide a 21st century experience. The Art Deco features give an elegant setting for a welcoming and comfortable stay. Staff are the crowning touch. I will return for business with Marquette as well as pleasure while in Milwaukee.

The large connecting rooms are comfortable and enjoyable for our children of 4 young adults and teens. The Sunday brunch is a favorite of ours. We choose to stay at the Ambassador every time we stay in Milwaukee to visit Marquette University!

This is a clean and well-kept hotel. The guest rooms are large and spacious. The on-site bar, restaurant, and cafe have excellent food. This is a convenient location for conferences or meetings at Marquette.

Luxury hotel convenient to Marquette. Vintage elevators were big hit. Great rooms. Vintage cocktail lounge was wonderful. We were only in city one day as college trip for daughter looking at Marquette for 2015.

We stayed at the Ambassador recently. I was a little apprehensive when I read that it was completely re-done as usually that means nothing more that a re-do of the lobby. We were pleasantly surprised. The room was well-appointed and the amenities were very nice. Also, Cafe Deco was a great stop for the evening -- the bar staff was very nice!! Great place to stay.

I like the actual place a lot, just not the hotel's service. First of all, no free fridge unless you want to pay $20. Called for towels and they never brought them and had to air dry. Additionally, they don't let delivery drivers come to your room and delivery your food which is inconvenient a little bit. At least guest services could bring it but nope. The A/C system was a bit off and never got very cool in the room.

Have stayed here before. Don't let distance from downtown center deter you. The shuttle takes care of that. The bar is very fun and the rooms are bigger and better than expected. Also nice to have a mini-bar-even if you don't use it:)
