"Great location for Wisconsin Center events."
Great hotel at reasonable cost for downtown events. Free shuttle to downtown areas with courteous drivers. $20 dollar daily parking with clean and lighted parking garage. Great food in the restaurant, but slightly pricey. Room was great and staff kept room clean. Only downside to the room was shower pressure was not what I prefer. Overall I would stay anytime at this hotel without any concerns for safety or health issues.

Extremely friendly and helpful staff, large clean room, nice hotel bar and restaurant, safe secure parking. Only drawback was the surrounding neighborhood was a bite shakey. The shuttle to the ballpark was great.

Very nice hotel, about 5 min to Miller park, close to downtown area. Room are very spacious and clean. The staff was very nice and informative about the amenities and services the hotel offers upon checking in. I would definitely recommend and stay at this hotel again if I'm ever in the area again.

"Super nice hotel. Love the art deco look."
We have stayed at this hotel twice now. I really like it. It is clean and the rooms are very large. The Art Deco look of the hotel is super cool. The staff was excellent. We went to the casino and took their shuttle over, very easy and convenient. The price was substantially lower than a lot of the hotels in the area. I would highly recommend it and I am very picky when it comes to hotels.

"One night stay at Ambadsador Hotel - Milwaukee"
We loved this hotel. The bar and restaurant were great and the food was delicious. We took sdvantage of the shuttle to Miller Park, which was an awesome service. The only downside is the fact that there are no places to go to eat or drink within walking distance.

"Room reservation said we would have sofa sleeper"
everything was awesome except that reservation said that room would come with a sofa sleeper. did not get a couch of any kind and that was a bummer because we were hanging out with a bunch of friends before a concert. had to use the bathroom shower as a seat for guests as well as the bed. Awkward.

"A cheaper version of the Pfister"
Nice boutique hotel with a quaint 1920's vibe. Ridiculous parking charge. Restaurant is alright, food is pretty plain. The 2-for-1 happy hour drinks with a selection of half price appetizers is the best thing about the hotel. You won't be walking around the neighborhood at night.

"Sleepless in Milwaukee"
Considering it is an older hotel with very thin walls, you would think they would make sure that the beds were comfy to make up for it. The bed was as hard as rock and small. Trying to get to sleep on a uncomfortable bed when you can hear everything in the hallway and room next door was impossible. The bathroom was tiny. The only redeeming quality was the close proximity to The Rave for the concert we were attending.

"The Ambassador Hotel has maintained its charms"
I had stayed at the Ambassador Hotel years ago, and knew it to be an elegant old style hotel. I was in town for training, and it was conveniently located, so I booked a room. I feared that everything might have become run down and dated, but was very pleasantly surprised. The Ambassador Hotel has been kept in good condition, from the huge marble lobby to my well appointed room. My room maintained the look and feel of a beautiful period hotel room without seeming old or patched up at all. I wish I could have stayed longer than just the one night. The only negatives I noticed was that the street side can be pretty noisy (but hey, you're staying in a busy city) and that the parking structure is not attached - which could be an issue in bad weather. Neither of things would prevent me from staying there again.

"Ambassador Hotel"
This hotel is a night time watering hole for the locals and the bar area very busy on weekends. The neighborhood is very marginal - right next to Marquette University. Unless you are needing this location I would not stay here. My conference was here. The conference room is very marginal. All of the staff were very friendly and competent. The hotel is old but very clean and in OK condition. The room was the same.

"Good central hotel"
Very helpful hotel staff when it comes to what to do. Great shuttle service. Nice happy hour. Comfortable rooms, and for me, plenty of channels. Honestly, you're just inside of the hood and if you dine/drink on the porch, you will be approached for spare change. Wasn't too keen on the $20/night parking since there's plenty of room, but it's very well lit and secure.

"A nicely preserved historic hotel"
Stayed here one night on a quick trip to Milwaukee while attending a conference. This historic hotel is very quaint with its art deco feel, and nicely preserved, which is a nice change from some other historic hotels we've visited. The walls and doors are thick, so it reduces hallway noise significantly, which makes for a lovely night's sleep. Service was good, but didn't make use of any of the hotel amenities, so can't comment on that. The hotel is located very near Marquette University, but you need to stay on the main streets and know your destinations, because four neighborhood blocks in the wrong direction can become a little sketchy. All in all, a nice stay. Would go back.

"An average hotel"
This hotel is older, not as nice as others I have stayed at in the same area. I thought the room was a bit over priced for what it was. The pictures of what the room looked like were different then the room we got. We thought we were getting a room with a jacuzi in from the pictures. The biggest plus of this hotel to me was how close it was to the Rave.

"20 DOLLARS TO PARK AT HOTEL????????????"
Room was nice. I did not like having to pay 20 dollars to park my car even if you are staying there overnight. Also thought we would take their shuttle to Miller Park for Brewer game, then found out both were full and the next one would leave hotel 30 minutes after game had started another 20 dollars for taxi.

"Architectural and historical gem."
We only spent one night because we just made a quick trip in to tour Marquette, but I could not get over the beauty and architectural detail of this hotel. They did a magnificent job of restoring the place. I only wish we had been able to eat dinner there, because the restaurant was also gorgeous. It was like stepping back in time. Loved the art deco style.

"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

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.
