Ambassador Hotel - Milwaukee, Milwaukee
Not the same hotel as I enjoyed 2 years ago :-(
I stayed here two years ago and loved the sophisticated, glamorous feel of the hotel. This weekend, was NOT that way! I moved rooms within a hour of being there do to families surrounding me that were slamming doors, yelling across the hall, had music up. I was there for a work conference and could not focus on what I needed to get done. My second room was good, until the next afternoon when a young couple next to me got into a domestic argument yelling and screaming and shouting about his drugs. That same night people were smoking-which drifted into all the rooms through their bathroom vents. CoWorkers who stayed on a different floor had people smoking weed on their floor. Too many uncontrolable and unsafe feeling circumstances. Should have so many minors staying there unsupervised after the rave!!I don’t know that I will stay here again. Sad the change! It is a beautiful historic hotel otherwise.

Great Escape
I needed to get away for personal reasons and this hotel was very accommodating. I extended my room for an extra night and they gave me no hassle and even extended it for the same price I'd pre-booked. The bed was comfortable and the food was reasonably priced. The only thing I'd suggest is adding a small frig for the things I brought with me. Or even leaving a little room in the frig there. Everything in it you must purchase, if one row/shelf was empty that would have been great.

Room next to elevator was too noisy. Room seemed clean at first but later discovered an unpleasant smell from bathroom. Not sure if rooms booked with third party sites are as good as others. Stayed here before and it wasn’t bad.

Beautiful old hotel downtown Milwaukee
Stayed for my friends birthday. Very friendly but wasn't told about the extra $20 to park in their parking lot until I checked in. So my secret deal price went right back up.
