Verified Reviews of Ambassador Hotel

Below are the verified reviews from guests that we have booked recently:
"Very old, classy anitque hotel!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
First time staying here and I really loved it. I like how old and antique it was like the elevators are still from the 20's, but is still classy. Definitely recommend in Milwaukee especially if you are going to a concert at The Rave! Fun time and clean hotel that is definitely worth it!

"Perfect stay, wonderful experience!"
Overall Score5.0/ 5
The Ambassador Hotel is a beautiful, wonderful hotel and it was the perfect place for us to have our wedding block and get ready for our wedding. The rooms were comfortable, beautiful and spacious and perfect for everyone to get dressed and ready. Everyone in the hotel was extremely courteous and helpful. The hotel restaurant was delicious and very reasonably priced and when I went to them on Sunday morning and asked (very last minute) if they would be able to accommodate 25 people for brunch, I expected them to say no. They said they would be able to fit us into the restaurant and when we went down for brunch, were delighted to find that they had set up a private room for us! Our server was amazing and we had a wonderful time. I cannot express enough how thankful I am for all of the amazing staff at the hotel, who helped with everything from arranging a table, to helping us get into our rooms and bring our luggage in from the car and they even helped me climb into the car in my giant wedding dress on the way to the venue! I would definitely recommend the Ambassador Hotel for any stay, but especially for an event, they were exceptional.

Customer Reviews of Ambassador Hotel

4.0 out of 5. Based on 2137 guest reviews, Very Good

Property Description

The Ambassador Hotel has been a fixture on the west side of downtown Milwaukee for nearly eighty years. Designed in 1927, the structure boasted many of the hallmarks of Art Deco design. Its gleaming marble floors, stylized sconces, bronze elevator doors and ornate plasterwork made the hotel a favorite spot for society gatherings. Purchased in 1995 by an alumnus of nearby Marquette University, a restoration over the next decade revamped the hotel. Rooms were reconfigured to allow for more spacious accommodations and gleaming new bathrooms were installed. Dropped ceilings and drywall were removed to reveal the intricate details and archways, along with vintage radios. The Ambassador Hotel's ambitious effort has served as a cornerstone in the rebirth of the surrounding neighborhood and its bold rooftop sign once again beckons guests to enjoy a true Milwaukee legend.
