On a Saturday, I tried to check in at about noon - yes, sure, I know the rules, but usually it's not a problem with downtown Milwaukee hotels to check in early. The woman at the front desk was super rude about it - like it was the most ridiculous thing she'd ever heard that I'd

We were surprised at the spacious room! It was also very clean and comfortable! We arrived after 11pm and staff were friendly and helpful. Was very thankful for the parking garage as I know parking has been an issue at other hotels we've stayed at without them in Milwaukee.

The hotel was nice and the staff was friendly. The neighborhood was not the best, but this was OK for our trip. The hallway smelled very strongly of smoke even though we were on a non-smoking floor. One thing that I think is totally unacceptable about the hotel and would prevent

Does the shuttle run to and pick up from Miller Park?
Yes! Our shuttle does service Miller Park. Shuttle service is provided on a first come, first served basis and runs on a schedule. We highly recommend that you call ahead and make a shuttle reservation. The shuttle leaves the hotel at the bottom of the hour. For example, if the game you are attending starts at 1p you should make your reservation for the 12:30p shuttle. After the game, guests returning to the hotel must be patient and courteous to one another. The shuttle picks guests up in the same spot that it drops off at. The shuttle will go back and forth between Miller Park and the hotel as many times as it needs to to make sure everyone that rode the shuttle to the park has been brought back to the hotel. At times, it can take a while to transport everyone back to the hotel, as it is difficult to get in / out of Miller Park after games because of traffic. Please call 414-345-5000 to make your shuttle reservation or if you have further questions. We hope this helps!

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.

Is there parking at the hotel ? Thank you Gary
Yes there is covered parking but you have to pay $20 a day but sometimes you can cut a deal with the hotel for free parking, just ask, but the free shuttle service makes up for the parking,no cabs needed here,a great service

"Called hotel to get the best rate. East-facing 7th floor room had okay view of skyline."
"The elevators are pretty slow. Our room was on the second floor, so it was easy - and faster - to take the stairs.."
"The King Accessible room was very nice"
"We had three friends all in different rooms and the hotel did accommodate us all on the same floor which was great."
"We had a corner room with a spa tub. I think the tub request gets you the corner room."
