Good and Bad
When I got to the hotel to check in, they had upgraded us to the Ambassador Hotel instead of the Inn for free! The staff was very nice at the front desk & made sure I was happy.
The overnight parking (the safer option compared to out on the street) costed $10, which isn't terrible, but I strongly feel every hotel should have free parking at their facilities where customers can feel assured their car is safe.
The room was clean. Although the lobby, elevator and common areas had a foul smell.
The beds were very uncomfortable. I think they purchased the least expensive mattress on the market. Every spring was felt. The shower had an area in the ceiling that needed to be repaired. Also, the caulk seal needed to be replaced around the tub.
Dusty, loud, grim
Room was dirty. Elevator smelled like pee. Walls are thin. Difficult to navigate if you have luggage.
i'd visit again.
honestly, i think we stayed at the other ambassador across the street. friendly, helpful staff. super comfy bed and pillows. nice shower/tub space. the restaurant area looked nice too. can't say whether or not it could be considered a family hotel...i'd call and check with the hotel. i didn't see or hear any children though.
that there was one switch to control all the lights in the room.
Milwaukee is one of the great Midwestern cities and despite its proximity to Chicago, Wisconsin's largest city has staked out its own unique identity. Whether it is as a manufacturing town or as a hub of Wisconsin's gastronomic preferences (it's famous for cheese, brats, and beer), there's much to see in what's called the German Athens of America. Staying in the Ambassador Inn is a great way to connect Milwaukee's past to it's present.
The Ambassador Inn is notable thanks to it's 1920's art deco décor. This is one of the ways the hotel is a throwback to a different time. While a bygone era is evoked in décor, modern amenities are not taken for granted. Guests can count on attentive staff and the most comfortable accommodations. No expense is spared when it comes to taking care of the guests at this hotel, and the staff is keen to help guests with any concerns.
Dining is easy at the hotel. The Fitz is a classic Milwaukee restaurant serving Wisconsin cheese flights along with breakfasts, lunches, and dinners. Gin Rickey is a classic lounge serving up some of Milwaukee’s best cocktails, and if you are looking to start your day with a quick bite, the Deco Café is the ideal spot.
The Ambassador Inn offers much to all types of travelers and is a great place to experience the best that Milwaukee offers. With its charming décor, you'll feel transported to a different time but the modern amenities keep you rooted in the 21st century while appreciating the creativity of the past.
