Nice hotel

This was a very well done Art-Deco hotel with the main building right across the street. The staff was friendly and professional, even the restaurant in the main hotel was very good. If you're going to a ball game you should definitely take the shuttle. It's free and very fast.

A wonderful place to stay

The Ambassador Inn, across Wisconsin from the Ambassador Hotel, was the perfect spot for us. The ONLY drawback is that one has to cross the street between the Hotel and the Inn, and many Milwaukee drivers use Wisconsin Avenue as a speedway. The Envoy Restaurant has great food. The adjacent bar is very nice. Staff could not have been more helpful or friendly. The excercise room is well-equipped. The shuttle service is fast and free, and it enabled us to see downtown without having to cope with driving in a strange city or finding parking.

The Pabst Mansion is just blocks away. It is a fantastic, Gilded Age house, furnished with many original items. There is a fantastic collection of fine porcelain, notable Nymphenburg, Meissen, and KPM.

Great Place to Stay!

Don't be swayed by some of the negative reviews, I have stayed at this hotel twice now for 3 nights apiece and both times have been amazing. The best part for me has been the cheap price and free parking. Oh, and the free shuttle to Miller Park has been amazing. It is within 3 block of Marquette University, which has some really good eats nearby. The rooms are cozy and I haven't had a problem with cleanliness at all, rooms were well maintained. Don't be swayed by the neighborhood, I have never had a problem at all, and it's so close to the university that there are cops everywhere. Will definitely be back!

Located right by Marquette are Real Chili, Dogg Haus, and Soblemans. A 3 minute drive or 10 minute walk gets you right there.

Beautifully comfortable experience!

The room was beautiful and the beds were so comfortable I didn't want to get out of them. I couldn't say enough about the staff and how helpful and friendly they were. I'm not from the area and they were like having my own gps. Thank so much for a wonderful day weekend.

let them drive you

The room was clean and fine but the best part was the ride service. They will provide a ride to many amnenties in the area whether in the downtown are or to the ballpark. Just call the front desk. Very convenient and takes a lot pf pressure off fining your way to attractions. Will stay there again.

good location

We didn't really leave the room much. There was a shuttle to and from the game with perfect timing. The neighborhood was fine. We went for a little waslk after the game. The receptionist was on the phone every time I saw her, but maybe it was business related. There was also a leak in the foyer when we got back from the game. Hope that doesn't happen all the time. All in all it was a good stay. The room was clean and set at a very nice temperature.

Great historic hotel!!

The hotel is right across from The Rave, so it was perfect. We went down for a concert there. I did not expect it to be so nice. Although the neighborhood isn't great, this hotel is awesome! It has been totally renovated. The rooms are very nice- feather pillows and down comforters!! There's a really nice bar inside the hotel and a nice restaurant and coffee shop, too. It's an incredible value for the price!
