I decided on the hotel partially on location, since I was seeing a band at The Rave, and partially on the reviews on Trip Advisor, which were great. Walking to The Rave was great and saved me money from paying for parking. However the room was subpar. After taking a shower the tub would not drain and when it finally...

Tried getting a room in this hotel after checking into my original hotel at a different location. They were sold out but an employee named Francesco over heard me and helped me get a room there. It was in the process of getting redone and he was able to help transfer me over to this hotel. He went out of...

Not upscale but this historic hotel was clean, quiet and the service was friendly and attentive. Big rooms too. It's not "downtown" but it's soooo much easier to get around. The Pabst Mansion was two blocks away. We went to the Art Museum, Harley Museum, Mitchell Domes, Bucks game at the Bradley Center, Miller Brewer, multiple restaurants and more everything...

I was overwhelmed at how nice this hotel was and how amazing the staff were. I will definitely be back to this location. They offer such great services both in the hotel and outside the hotel. Drinks and appetizers in the bar were also very good!

My stay at the Ambassador was fine. I think it is overpriced for the age of the hotel and the area, but it is still a nice place. We did eat breakfast in the cafe and my friend ordered the eggs benedict and he did not like the hollandaise sauce at all. The rest of us tasted it and agreed...

Shuttle service was unavailable due to 2 basketball games, room service only has powder coffee creamer, hotel cleaners walked into room without knocking or announcing. Bar was cool, food in bar was good, hotel is old but updated nicely. Paid to park, $25. The desk staff really acted like they were genuinely concerned with my comments...and that is about all...

We began an annual stay at the Ambassador last year weekend prior to Valentines. We come with BFFs and spouses, and this year some of the offspring joined us as well. We dined at the Envoy, our waiter may have been a bit overwhelmed. We had a big party, our thought he should have maybe only had our table, but...

Our room was clean, bed was comfortable, and had everything that we needed for a one night's stay. It was also very quiet. Secure parking was great and very convenient, also enjoyed the bar at the end of our evening. Staff was very polite and helpful. Will definitely stay here again.
