I stayed there 9/11-9/14 with my wife and 7 year old son. We were shocked the moment that we pulled in. It was a construction zone. Workmen all over as we got out of the car. As we walked the into lobby the stair way was boarded up and smell of fresh paint and glue for the carpet. This place... More

The Edgewater was considered to Madison's landmark. However, the new hotel is a guest's worst nightmare. The hotel is a construction disaster. Nothing in the room works. Toxic smell of wet paint permeates through your skin and clothe. The professionalism of the front desk is a disgrace. Rude and indifferent attitude was consistent throughout their staff. I will never go... More

We were so excited to try the new Edgewater. Unfortunately the renovations were nowhere near complete. None of the restaurants are finished. The lobby was unfinished and partially boarded up. You can't self park. They waived the resort fee and the valet fee and provided a free breakfast. We never eat hotel breakfasts so I can't comment on that. I... More

The hotel is just excellent, location was awesome, just 5 minutes away from the busy state street and the magnificent state capital. Room was clean, excellent view for Lake Mendota, staff were friendly and helpful. Sure will stay in the hotel for my next visit.

My wife and I received a gift certificate from our daughter for our 40th Wedding Anniversary. We stayed in a Suite on a corner with views out 2 sides. The view of Lake Mendota at night is spectacular. Slowly sipping room service coffee in the early AM looking out at the lake is Magical! In my considerable experience, few if... More

I came here for the best birthday celebration a friend of mine could experience. I can preach forever of fancy hotels which are epic fails beneath the surface. I had no complaints here. Excellent staff. Excellent views of Lake Mendota (and the Wisconsin state capitol from the front entrance). The bartender at the party was very keen and knowledgeable in... More
