Second Day in Milwaukee

... back to the Hyatt from 3 to 5 for what will be the high light of the trip for Bob - Germany's 7-1 win over Brazil in the World Cup semi-final.  There were several interesting restaurants six blocks from the Hyatt but with all the walking we had done we decided to go across the street to an Italian place. It was a good choice as we both enjoyed our meals. Kathy had cheese cannelloni and Bob had chicken ...

Walk Down Memory Lane

... the original school had been replaced. Our final stop was Kathy's old house.  It was still there but almost completely hidden by trees and hard to see. Like they say you can't go home again.   Thankfully, you can keep home in your memory.  Heading back south to continue our trip to Milwaukee we stopped at Warren Dunes State Park.  This is a beach on Lake Michigan. There were lots of bathers and an incredibly high dune. Lake Michigan looks like an ocean ...

The North Platte Challenge aka "the final voyage"

A travel blog entry by jruetz

... an hour letting the storm cell advance further a head of me. The storm was to hit Chicago around 6:15 or so and I figured if I could make the Illinois border I'd be heading a little North and would be clear of the trailing rain. The next 60 miles to the border were a test to my commitment to make it home that day. Solid heavy rain until I hit the interchange that took me more north east, from there on home it was more of a nagging mist. ...

... very hot in the afternoon so we headed off to the HD hotel - Iron Horse Hotel which was a warehouse which has been beautifully converted. Lunch was good and it was interesting watching all the comings and goings.

Back towards the hotel and stopped off at the mall - Sean and I had pedicures - what a treat after so many days in boots and a hair trim for me.

Sean spent the afternoon, swapping over foot ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Ambassador Hotel Milwaukee

    There are effectively TWO hotels here - get the good one!

    from

    We jjust stayed for over a week and had a great time. A beautiful art deco building with a lobby to match will be stunning when finished.

    This hotel is still in the process of being refurbished, so make sure you get one of the new rooms (Floors 7 and 8) which are just great; I suspect that some of the poorer reviews came from clients who got the un-refurbished rooms.

    I Wish I Could Forget this Place

    from

    Perhaps it was what appeared to be a large, dried blood stain on the carpet, or the scaly bedspread, or maybe the rust motif in the bathroom ... no, it was definitely the feeling that I had to get up every five minutes to make sure my car was still in the parking lot. That's what made the Ambassador Hotel so memorable. The staff was fine, but this place is a hell hole. And you know where you stand in a hell hole.

    Good for cheap long term stay

    from

    Nice location..

    Cheap weekly rates..

    And to be honest I have found the staff to be very nice. I have been there a few days so far and I haven't had any issues with people being loud.

    They are working on the rooms and it's not the Ritz, but for the price, much more than I was hoping for.

    I'm not sure I'd stay paying the daily rate.. But for weekly you can't beat price or location.

    I'm out.

    Brand new Rooms!! Don't miss this!

    from

    We stayed at this hotel for Harley Davidson's 100th Birthday Bash. The hotel just completed a $3M renovation. It is just gorgeous. We stayed in a King whirlpool suite. It offered everything from Free high speed internet to three phones, frige and microwave. The rooms are posh. BEST PRICE & ROOM IN TOWN! Be sure not to miss this one.BettyIllinois

    Anything would be better

    from

    This was most definitely the worst hotel I have ever stayed at. We stayed the day the crane crashed, cancelling the Brewers game (we came just to see that game). We booked the two bedroom suite, stayed one very NOISY night with people fighting, sirens blaring, etc. Not to mention no clock and very uncomfortable bedding. Anyway, we cancelled our last night there due to the crane crashing, and they charged us for the last night there! Refused to take it off our bill too. We figured just to keep it and not deal with these people, incredibly rude staff and management. I highly suggest one of the dumpy lodges over this one. Very disappointed and disgusted with the service here.

    Disgusting

    from

    Having booked a double room, and being told it was downtown, we arrived at the hotel and were given a small room with a tiny twin bed, no pillows, no blinds or curtains on the window, and a disgusting old bathroom. The staff were very rude, and I couldn't wait to get out of there.

    The Best!!

    from

    Great hotel and staff. They are wonderful ambassadors to the city of Milwaukee.

    AVOID AT ALL COST

    from

    The lobby is beautiful art deco; the room we stayed in was what I would imagine someone on skid row staying in.. I can live without air conditioning; I cannot live with noise, a squalid room, and a bathroom straight out of a nightmare. The only thing it has going for it is the short distance (1/2 block) to The Rave where we saw Wilco.. Wilco was great but cost us both a good night's sleep. I woke up about 3am to noise from next door, outside, etc. Let's just say the Spinal Tap song with the refrain "Hell hole" kept running through my brain. I was tempted to get up and drive the 4 hours home. AVOID AT ALL COST. If there are no other hotels available because of conventions or festivals: STAY HOME.

    Incredibly Rude Staff

    from

    I recently encountered a problem with a 3-room reservation at the Ambassador: the nature of the problem is not important and may not have been the Hotel's fault. The issue is not with my reservations, but rather with my experience with the staggeringly poor service there.

    Scary place

    from

    The lobby is beautiful (as seen on the web page) but the entire rest of the hotel is below a flop house. The rooms are rented weekely and monthly- it is a boarding house loacated in the iner city. People were LOUD and obnoxious all nght. Tee ere figts inthe halls, someone was banging at our door at 4 am (we had to call secrity) sirens were blaring (andstopping) at the hotel. SEEDY . Entire families live in the small rooms. It is sad. It is cold. It is American poveryt. like a scence from an inner city hotel on LAw ans Order. BEWARE
