This is such a comfortable and friendly hotel. The location is terrific for walks around college students and their interesting environs. It's my favorite in Madison. Try it and enjoy the earm walnut chocolate chip cookie they offerr on arrival.

I chose this hotel because it said it was close to downtown. It turns out that there is a shuttle that will take you there. The staff is very friendly. The parking situation is a bit different. You have to check in at the front desk before entering the parking structure to get tokens for your exit of the parking... More

On a last minute trip we found a quality room with the help of the friendly front desk staff. Room was updated and very clean. Breakfast buffet had quality items to choose from including real eggs, oatmeal bar, tasty cranberry cinnamon muffins with crumble on top. Wait staff was prompt and friendly. Free, secured parking on-site. Surrounding streets have student... More

I think this hotel has gotten better at handling this extremely busy weekend each year over the past 5 years I've been attending. With the hotel being sold out over 3 days and the grill being very busy, they handled it just like a normal weekend. The rooms had been remodeled in the past year and they looked great. It's...

If you are going to the Madison area, this is a great hotel. The value, location, staff and amenities are tops. The rooms were exceptionally quiet and clean. The fitness center is on the smaller side, but has a good variety. My colleague used the pool and was very pleased. Reataurant had great staff and food was served hot (or... More

My favorite thing about Hilton Doubletree Hotels are their signature cookies provided upon check in. There's nothing like stepping into the hotel lobby after traveling a crazy amount of hours and being handed a warm cookie. The only thing better is if it came with a little bit of milk! (Hint to management? Kidding!) Anyways, this hotel did not disappoint.... More
