"A beautiful Art Deco hotel with a history."
Overall, I was very impressed with the facilities and having an opportunity to stay at such a beautiful hotel with a rich history. Upon arriving, I was greeted warmly and found my room to be spacious and comfortable. I'm a huge fan of Art Deco and had a moment in the lobby where I felt like, "Wow, I feel as though I've stepped back in time." Still, going from good to great is in the details. And I found there were several things that need to be addressed. The parking was a little pricey for my liking, but I did choose to use their garage. Upon returning from my evening activities, I found that there was a line of cars about 10-15 deep trying to enter the garage. As a guest, with a pass, I didn't know if I had a "guest entrance" or if I should just jump in the line. There was some type of concert going on that evening and I honestly didn't know if we had access to a special entrance. When I asked the individual at the front desk, it didn't appear as though he was interested in alleviating this situation in any way. I have to comment on the honor bar and the $6 bottle of water offered in the rooms. I was thinking that many, if not most hotels are moving away from this service. In a city that has a brewery using green energy to brew their beer, this kind of rubbed me the wrong way. Yes, a guest doesn't have to buy anything. $5 for Peanut M&Ms is a little out of control. Once again, I had a very comfortable stay and the Ambassador is a beautiful hotel. But details matter

We came for a weekend stay. We were so happy we picked this hotel. The staff was very friendly and so helpful. The shuttle bus came in very handy. We used it to go to a basketball game.They dropped us off and picked us up at the time we wanted.The hotel itself was very clean,large room and quiet. We definitely will be back again soon.

"ONLY place to stay in MKE"
Awesome as always - it was a little cruel when they put the 1928 prices of the drinks on the drink menu next to the modern prices (haha) - it made my head hurt when I did the math. Only complaint is the tacky neon of the casino shining in my room. Ugly.

It's so elegant in the lobby, the elevators a bit different all others, and the room is quite spacious and very clean with big flat screen TV which has a lot options to plug USB hdmi etc into. The only problem was slow shuttle service which really sucked but overall really nice

we were in town for a play at the Repertory Theater and stayed overnight. The front desk was most generous and helpful in securing future reservations and getting us a fine room. The free shuttle service took us to our restaurant and picked us up in 10 minutes after our play. Another great experience at the Ambassador Hotel.

"Beautiful hotel"
The hotel was beautiful. Clean. The staff was super helpful and accommodating. Had a small issue with my door and they immediately upgraded me. My only complaint is the neighborhood it is in.. It's a bit sketchy. I wouldn't have been comfortable without my boyfriend with me. But their parking garage is on site, which made it better.

"A Pleasant Surprise"
The Ambassador Hotel was a very pleasant surprise. Although the exterior of the facility seemed a little drab and the neighborhood wasn't the best, my wife and I decided to to at least take a look at the lobby before going to another hotel. Boy, are we glad that we did! From our first greeting by the bell staff this hotel and their hospitality team were top notch. The place is beautifully decorated and wonderfully themed. It was amazingly clean and well kept. The rooms were twice as big as any we've stayed. The hotel was quiet and everywhere we went, a staff member was offereing to help us find our way or answer a question.

What a beautiful 1920s era boutique hotel! It was beautiful, quant, and the staff was so helpful and pleasant. Barry the bartender was so hospitable and attentive! LOVED the super convenient location ~ right across the street from The Rave/Eagles Club!! We had a double queen room and it was huge, clean, and carried the '20s vibe. The safe and convenient parking access was worth the $20. We'll definitely be staying at the Ambassador again!

"Beautiful Hotel Near Downtown"
I love the ambience of the Ambassador. It's a beautiful old hotel near the Marquette campus. The bar is straight out of the 30s or 40s. As a previous customer, they were kind enough to upgrade me to a room with a Jacuzzi for the weekend. Wonderful decor in the rooms and comfortable beds. They have a free shuttle to take you downtown (we went to the Bucks game) and then pick you up when you're ready to get back. The staff was very helpful and friendly and the rooms were moderately priced.

This was a very well managed hotel but for the price you pay parking should be included and I think there should be complimentary coffee in the lobby.

"Love this old gem."
Beautiful old art deco hotel and the public spaces are in good shape. Very near Marquette, which was a bonus. For the rate, this was a steal--we had huge and very comfortable room- not high end luxury, but the amenities offered (towels/robes/Starbucks/Aveda products/pillow "library") were all top notch. It would have been nice to have a microwave a mini fridge. It could have used a bit more attention to cleanliness in the bathroom, but I'm picky. There was a restaurant (it felt European), Starbucks coffee shop and terrific bar/cafe in-house which were much appreciated. We will be back.

"Just Ok"
This hotel is fine if you're looking for a place near Marquette. However, it was a little weird at times. The phone in our room didn't work despite being plugged in - but the phone buttons weren't even hotel buttons. It was just a regular phone with no direct way to call the front desk, although that didn't matter since it didn't work. There wasn't a clock in the room. Our floor (2nd) had a sign for ice but when I went looking there was no ice machine, but there were unlocked closets with mini fridges and microwaves that I guess people can take to their rooms? One closet was just full of boxes of old paperwork so I'm hoping there wasn't any sensitive material considering the door was literally standing open to the hallway. Unfortunately I also never got a hot shower, lukewarm at best. Not a terrible place by any means, but there are other places in town I would recommend over this one.

Service is great at the front desk and in the bar. Housekeeping did a great job. It is an old hotel so it has its quirks. Makes for a fun, different business trip layover. The pillows are as hard as rocks. Even though they give you six of them on your king.

"A Fantastic Hotel with Authentic Old World Charm"
If you are looking for a nice affordable stay in Milwaukee near all of the excitement of the city, the Ambassador is a fantastic choice. To start, the room rates are very reasonable and certainly some of the least expensive I've ever paid for such accommodations. Walking into the Ambassador, you have a hard time believing that the rooms could be so cheap; there’s an old world charm that has been beautifully maintained. The rooms are spacious, the TV is new, and the climate control is quite effective. My only complaint for the room is that I would've rather had a mini fridge than a mini bar. Service was a little varied, but generally I felt welcomed and wanted. Check-in was smooth as butter, and the lady helping us even congratulated my fiance and I on our engagement! Location of the Ambassador is great, as you are less than 2 miles from dozens of places to go including breweries, pubs, restaurants, stores, museums, parks, and the Lake Michigan bay. A few people have said they thought the location was seedy, but I didn't get that. The only real disappointment was parking; there is a nice parking garage behind the hotel, but it’s $20 per night that is sort of just sprung upon you at the last second as you are checking in. The Ambassador is a charming hotel with a rich and well-maintained history, a great staff, a fantastic location, and great amenities for the cheap price. If I ever find myself in Milwaukee again, I can't imagine myself going to any hotel but here.
