We booked a room for Valentine's weekend. The entire experience was beyond compare. We had a wonderful lakefront room. The hotel is new and rooms are beautifully decorated. We used the spa and relaxation pool. The temperature was below zero outside and 95 degrees in the pool. We were so relaxed. Then the breakfast and dinner in the Statehouse restaurant... More

Warm, friendly, and well-trained staff perfectly complimented this newly renovated historic landmark hotel located on Lake Mendota near the UW campus. Very much enjoyed our stay and would highly recommend to others. Facility is beautiful, with gorgeous views of both the lake and the Capitol building. Room was clean, spacious and very comfortable. As nice as the facility is, what... More

Hotel rooms and grounds are beautiful and tastefully done, views of frozen lake were very nice. The hotel staff was wonderful and always willing to help. Our main disappointment was the hotels "relaxation" pool. The water temperature was barely lukewarm, and the room even colder. We tried it both Friday and Saturday hoping they had warmed it up, it was... More

Good Day Darboymom, Thank you for the review. I'm sorry our Relaxation Pool fell short of your expectations. The Relaxation Pool isn't a Jacuzzi; it is a jetted pool in which the temperature is set to be between 94 - 96 degrees, which is a better temperature to lounge in up to 30-45 minutes without overheating your body. It also... More

This is a nice, new, hotel right on the shore of Lake Mendota. Very good service overall. We had two delicious meals at the Statehouse Restaurant, and would recommend it for anyone. We had great service, great healthy food, and a nice view. They also have a great 'wall of fame', with stills and video displays, showing famous people from... More

Although we arrived on a cold winter night, the welcome by the staff from the valet attendant, to the bell hop to the front desk couldn't have been warmer!

It was quiet and peaceful for the evening and view was amazing. Concierge services were exceptional and the staff was extremely nice and helpful. Prime location with lots of restaurants, museums, historic buildings and night clubs. Would have given a 5 star rating if not woken up by construction directly above at 7am and the fact that the bathroom was... More

Stayed here for a few nights while visiting university of Wisconsin. The staff couldn't have been nicer! The rooms were comfortable and clean and the radiant heat in the bathroom was a really nice touch , especially since it was so cold out!! We had dinner in their restaurant and the food was fabulous!

We made a reservation here at the last minute, when another hotel turned out to be too far out of town. The place is lovely, the staff gracious and accomodating. Close to town, excellent service. Rooms are beautiful.
