Facility needs upgrades. Staff was great. Rooms not insulated against noise from the city. Bathroom door would not stay closed. Tv had to be unplugged for 60 seconds to enable volume control. In order to reach the plug, you had to move a very heavy piece of furniture. This solution to fixing the TV was suggested by the front desk....

My son and I stayed here the night before our campus tour of Marquette. The hotel staff was very friendly and the free shuttle was very helpful, as we were trying to go to dinner downtown and there was no parking due to a basketball game that night. When we finished dinner, we called for the shuttle and it picked...

My Stay at the Ambassador Hotel was really nice. The hotel is just beautiful, the staff was really helpful and professional and the suite had everything we wanted too. The shuttle was on time and an extra plus as well.

Neat old hotel in Milwaukee! Rooms were clean and well maintained. The only complaint I would have is the lack of a refrigerator and microwave. Being from out of town it made it difficult to bring any food with or to bring back leftovers from a restaurant. I would recommend this hotel to anyone looking to stay in that area.

In town for an event at Marquette University, within walking distance. Beautifully restored hotel. The art deco was beautiful, good attention to detail. The room was very clean, pretty and comfortable. Good size and quiet. The bathrooms are a bit small because this is a restoration. It was not a problem and very clean. The staff was great and made...

We frequently stay at the Ambassador when visiting our children in Milwaukee. It is a charming hotel with friendly staff and large, comfortable rooms. Love the separate sink outside the bathroom. Both the dining room and the bar are outstanding.

Hotel is great, couldn't be better. But people treated the shuttle home from Miller Park like it was the last helicopter out of Vietnam. Pushing, shoving, swearing, no respect for anyone. Avoid at all costs.

We booked a Queen Boutique room. It was a last minute booking and thats all that was left. Once we got in our room we found out it was an adjoining room and we could hear the people next door pretty clearly. It was not a big deal since we were planning to be out most of the night, and...

Stayed at the Ambassador because The Pfister was booked. We made a decent 2nd choice with the Ambassador and will return some day when necessary. The only thing we had a problem with was the lack of 2 pods of coffee with caffeine.
