Wonderful hotel. Clean friendly staff. Beware of breakfast. As a Diamond Honors member I have come to know what to expect from Double Tree and this was not it. Apparently the cook feels that chopped eggs floating in liquid is ok. Their eggs are boiled in a bag eggs. Easy and great for institutional feeding but not appropriate for a... More

While I initially thought that the room rates for this hotel were a bit pricey compared to other hotels in Madison, I can now say that it was worth every penny. I stayed here since the Doubletree was the partner hotel for the Madison Mini-Marathon (my reason for being in Madison). The hotel overall was clean, quiet and centrally located.... More

From the front desk staff to the restaurant staff, the customer service was flawless. The room was beautiful and everything was clean. Excellent food, too! We will definitely stay here every time we're in Madison.

I visit quite a few college towns for work. The hotels tend to be boutique and not all that great. This Doubletree is really a great hotel. The staff are very nice and seem on top of everything. The rooms are comfortable, clean and spacious. It's about a 15 minute walk from the main UW Madison campus. The hotel is... More

Perhaps it was because we visited this hotel during college move-in weekend, but we did not have a great experience. While it was nice that the parking was free, it was rather difficult to park our car. Then, it was very much a brush-off check-in, even though I have HHonors status. The rooms themselves have clearly been updated, and the... More

Very nice hotel, staff goes out of their way to be helpful. The room sizes are way above average and very pleasant to return to. Breakfasts are also above the average with fresh berries, hot entree choices a personal pot of coffee/person and lovely staff. Location was excellent for our needs of moving our college student out of one apartment... More

They were too busy to acknowledge I was an HHonors member even though I checked in at 4 pm, right after normal check in and they were not busy. They were full the night I checked in so should have put me in an HHonors floor and taken care of me the way someone who has stayed at that hotel... More

Paul, Thank You for your review and for your continued loyalty to the DoubleTree by Hilton Madison. We sincerely apologize for the lack of room upgrade to reflect your Gold Hilton Honors status.

Have stayed here several times and have always enjoyed it. Staff is wonderful and rooms are nice. Good location with only a quick walk to State Street. Almost overlooks the Kohl Center. Neighborhood is right in the heart of college housing, but hotel is quiet.

Just book it you will not be disappointed. Everything about this hotel is a 10. From the location-the service and staff are superior to any hotel we have stayed at in the area to the room itself-clean and up to date.
