The iconic neon rooftop sign of the Ambassador Hotel has beckoned guests into downtown Milwaukee’s most distinctive travel experience for nearly a century. Beyond a façade boasting one of Milwaukee’s finest examples of Art Deco architecture, guests find themselves transported to an era when travel brought the chance to experience something new and exciting. Gleaming marble floors, stylized polished nickel sconces, bronze elevator doors and ornate plasterwork captivate guests with 1920’s grandeur from the moment they arrive.

Beautifully renovated and seamlessly appointed with every modern comfort, “Milwaukee’s Landmark Art Deco Hotel” offers a bridge between the city’s legendary past and its cosmopolitan present. A stay at the Ambassador is a stay at a warm, gracious home away from home served by true ambassadors of hospitality.
