i could use a little more water pressure in the shower but other than that the rooms are very large and the bed is comfortable. no issues with the stay at all. I went to a concert at The Rave across the street so this location was perfect. the $20 overnight parking was a little surprise.

Thank you for your compliments! Please know that the parking fee is disclosed in the booking conformation. That being said, we are currently working on making it more apparent via the various booking sites in order to ensure that our guests are well informed and are not "surprised" when they arrive, as we understand that it is unpleasant. We appreciate...

It was ok. The hotel and ambience was beautiful but again the bed linens not being replaced or new and the tub/shower was an issue. We didn't utilize the other services offered as we were only there for a short time for a wedding.

Can you please contact us with details? It is our goal that all of our guests are 100% happy with their experience. All of our linens, comforters, pillows and mattresses were replaced in January 2017, so they are all brand new. We are eager to hear from you and appreciate your feedback.

Shuttle service dropped us off in the Ghetto, because it was .3 miles outside of their radius. After telling us three times they would take us. Then left us at the lakefront brewery with no ride back to find out their service phones weren't working and they didn't let anyone know....

Thank you for taking the time to leave your feedback. Please know that we will address your experience with the shuttle drivers. It is NOT our policy to drop people off anywhere other than their destination. It is unacceptable that the driver did not take you all the way to your destination. It is a matter of "common sense". Please...

Always stay at the Ambassador. Wouldn't think of staying anywhere else! The rooms are spacious and clean and you just can't beat the ambience of the lobby and bar. Great place for a nightcap and a bite to eat!

Perfect! Big, clean rooms with comfy mattresses and abundant pillows! I never stay anywhere else. Courteous staff and fair price. Usually very quiet. Room service is steep, but tasty. Safe, $20 parking.
