This was my first stay at the Ambassador Hotel. I really liked this hote and will definitely come back. Several of the people I met during my stay were repeat customers. That pretty much says it all. The staff and food was amazing. The bed was comfortable and room quite large. The hotel has a lot of charm. Happy hour...

I Believe my staff would of been nice if I would of had clean sheets and the front seat person was a little more willing to help out. Also was not told that parking was $20 when made reservations I believe that was something I should of been aware of.

They completely exceeded our expectations. Everyone was very friendly and the location was pretty much equidistant from everything in Milwaukee. Our room even had a mini bar- which we did not expect for such a reasonably priced room.

We travel to milwaukee several times a year and always stay at the Ambassador. Connie and the other employees always recognize us and make us feel welcome.

The Ambassador was a wonderful place to stay while visiting my so who is a senior at Marquette. The Envoy lounge accommodated my request to watch the Academy Awards on one of the large flat screen TVs. My son and I had a wonderful dinner and enjoyed the show. Several other patrons watched too. It was fun!

We stayed here overnight and were pleasantly surprised. The decor is Art Deco and makes you wish you were dressed appropriately for the era! Rooms are very clean and comfortable. We were in Milwaukee on a busy weekend and were asked if we would move to a smaller room. We were more than fairly compensated for agreeing to the switch....

Other than no sheets on our bed, no soap in our rooms & bathroom was still some what dirty, the stay was nice. The price of in door parking, seeing as it is barely far from out door parking, is ridiculous. Overall feel of Ambassador Hotel is THE ONLY reason I keep returning. The 1920's theme is so neat.

We have been staying at the Ambassador hotel for 4 years and really enjoy the location, rooms, Deco bar and the coffee shop. It's also very nice to be able to come and go with our car or take the free shuttle.Connie is a fantastic employee who knows us and goes out of her way to make our stay enjoyable.
