My stay was good. Wish tv channel selection was better for the price i paid i would think it would have been better rather then only having tge option to pay 18.99 for a movie on demand. Was very dis appointed with that. But everything else was ok

The Ambassador never fails to charm a visitor. The Art Deco décor is fabulous and service most attentive. While not in the downtown area, they offer a shuttle to get one into and out of the downtown area, a wonderful complimentary service. Rooms are beautifully appointed. If you like the luxury of and "old-fashioned" environment and excepti9onal service, you will...

Charming 1920's theme hotel. Rooms are huge and food was delicious from the incredible breakfast to dinner/ desert. Everytime I travel to MKE - I stay here! The music and happy hour drinks are from another era!

Deco hotel kept in very good condition. Nice staff, bar, restaurants, rooms. Close to everything. We always stay there when in Milwaukee. Very close to Miller Park if you're in town for a ball game. Also a short drive ot cab to the casino.

Four sisters stayed overnight in early July 2016 and found the hotel to be charming, clean, and quite accommodating. We had a deluxe room with two queen beds. The bathroom was clean and very early 20th-century styling. A sitting area with a bar sink was also a part of the room layout. The room was spacious and comfortable with views...

We were in a king deluxe room and it was a great price. We were totally satisfied with our stay. Room was clean, spacious and quiet. The parking fee took me a bit by surprise, maybe it is somewhere in the booking but I was unaware that I would be having to pay a extra $20 per night to park....

Hotel was great but having to pay for overnight parking was a little extreme, especially with no option for free parking. Elevator was old fashion and cool, but they were very small. If you had a big group or alot of luggage you probably will have to make multiple trips.

The shuttle does not do airport pick up or drop off

It will take you anywhere in town and will pick you up at the drop off spot up to 11Pm

This is a great service at no charge

You will find that most of the shuttle drivers are very friendly and knowledgeable, especially Sam

Saves you a ton on cabs

Hi;

Matthew from the Hotel here. The value of the package for the breakfast averages out to about $11.00 per person, so $22.00.

The hotel does offer a free shuttle from 7:30am to 11:30pm. They definitely offer this service to the BMO Arena and most of downtown. However, the airport is not included.

Their bar happy hour is excellent! Do not miss the crab cakes!

Yes, the shuttle does go to the Bradley Center. Our shuttle will take you anywhere in the downtown area. The shuttle's last outgoing run (from the hotel) is 11:30pm. The last pick up (from an off-site venue to return to the hotel) is around midnight. The shuttle stops running at midnight. We highly recommend making a shuttle reservation, as it is a service that is booked on a first come, first served basis. You can make a shuttle reservation by calling the hotel directly at 414.345.5000. We guarantee the best rates when you book directly through us as well either by phone at 414.345.5000 or via our website. If you find a published rate lower than what is offered on our site, please call us and we will match it.

We hope that you choose the Ambassador and, if so, look forward to your visit. Please contact us any time.
