My husband and I stayed for a quick getaway from Chicago. Really nice rooms with great views. Great location away from town but close enough to walk. Did not do much at hotel except sleep and enjoy the views. Would go back.

As the weekend went on we stopped getting hot water in our bathroom. We notified management and they later informed us they found a faulty valve. I asked for a partial refund as the room was defective. I heard no response. We had to wait a significant time to get a drink at the bar. We had to wait a... More

We picked this hotel because of how it was situated right on the lake. We were not disappointed with the view Our room had a small terrace, which was nice in the evening. Although, the tables and chairs on the plaza give an equally pleasant view. We used the self-park, which is a little confusing since it's mixed with public... More

First let me cover the good things about the hotel; it is very well located, a quick walk to the Capitol and Saturday Farmers’ Market, the good sized room, large bath, and enormous shower. It was very quiet when the door to our gigantic terrace was closed so we didn't hear our neighbors socializing late one night. Nice screen closure... More

This is a lovely hotel. Right on the lake, beautifully appointed. We ate lunch at the boathouse and it good bar food, friendly service and beautiful views. You can walk to the capitol area as well as US Madison campus. Would definitely stay here for future trips to Madison.

This was my third time staying at The Edgewater and I really enjoy staying there. It is a great location near the capital and all the great restaurants and activities that are around the capital. My daughter is a student at UW and lives on Langdon so it is a short walk to her apartment. The lake views are beautiful... More

I loved the big bathtub. We ate at The Boathouse outside near the lake and saw the UW campus in the distance. There was... More

Our business recently held a three day annual conference at The Edgewater. This conference had previously been held in Chicago but we decided to change the venue this year. What a great decision! From the moment we arrived at The Edgewater everything was excellent. The rooms were spacious, modern, and most of them had a fantastic view overlooking Lake Mendota.... More

Stayed on a Friday, overall the hotel is very nice. Marble tiling in bath rooms and through out the hotel. Hotel is divided into two buildings, with a tunnel system connecting as well as walkway from ground level, which is the 6th floor. Beds were comfortable and rooms were spotless. We had drinks at the boathouse, which is located next... More

I rented this room on line because of the great value. It was a slow night or this room would have be very pricey. It sits right down town Madison on the water. The dining room, deck dining and Hotel Bar are stunningly beautiful. My room was on the 10th floor and the bathroom was just fit for royalty. The... More
