Where to start? There were so many amazing little details that added up to such a memorable experience! Check-in was a breeze with Molly and Jacqueline. They were both so warm and friendly and quick to help in anyway they could. When we got to our room (view of the lake and the iceskating rink) Jacqueline, the concierge, had the... More

This hotel (the Wisconsin side) is brand new and elegant. We stayed in a room facing Lake Mendota. The view was gorgeous, the bathroom was spacious, and the bed was comfortable. The hotel is in a great location-- within walking distance to the Capitol, State St., and the East end of the UW campus. We were celebrating a special event... More

Beautiful hotel and amazing staff loved it from the very moment my girl and I got there. I had jacklyn Cosgrove set up my room with flowers that were arranged in a very pretty heart. I also had a card that she used very wonderful handwriting on that was placed on the bed along with candles very worth it. The... More

I stayed three nights, in one of the rooms facing the lake on the third floor. The room was very attractively designed, the bed comfortable. The air handling system was pretty quiet. If you turned it off, the room was silent. (#301 is at the end of the hall). I expect there would have been more noise if there were... More

Stayed for one night. Very comfortable bed, lovely bathroom. Great view. I don't know how full they were but it was quiet. We didn't eat here or experience the spa so I can't comment on that. Highly recommend

We stayed two nights at this new hotel made up of two buildings, the Wisconsin and the Langdon. We stayed in Wisconsin side. They are connected by a tunnel. We checked in and headed up to the 11th floor, we had a beautiful room with a wall of windows facing lake Mendota. Bed comfortable, linens average. The phone did not... More

Just stayed overnight, and was quite impressed. Didn't spring for the extra money to get a water view, since we knew we were basically just sleeping there (and it's January!). BUT, from the moment we drove up, everything was just perfect. We had a room on the 11th floor with a beautiful view of the capitol dome - stunning in... More

For years I've been staying at the Doubletree because it was closer to my children at the U. This year my daughter moved to a sorority house and suggested I stay at the newly remodeled Edgewater. This will be my new "go to" hotel. The layout is a bit confusing, but that pales in comparison to the location, the spacious... More

Dear Vicki000, We are thrilled to be your new favorite hotel in Madison and look forward to seeing you again soon. Summer will be pretty spectacular with the opening of The Boathouse restaurant and the installation of the pier. The public plaza should be a real treat for our guests and our Madison neighbors alike. Ron Morin General Manager More

This newly remodeled hotel is one of the best hotels I have stayed in and I stay in over 75 every year. The rooms were very nicely done and the meeting rooms were nice as well. Service was also outstanding! I will be going back.

Fabulous stay with lake view. Wonderful spa experience. Entire staff went out of their way to help us. Warm and comfortable stay. We will be back! We stayed in the new building. Loved watching the ice skaters outside. Delightful with easy parking or valet service. Really enjoyed the car service that dropped us off at local shops and eateries.
