Driving up to the hotel, I thought "Uh oh, it looks a little dated," but what a nice surprise inside. The rooms are fresh and crisp and new, with great attention to detail.

Adequate accommodation, and yet I somehow expect more from a Doubletree. The room was clean and quiet. My room overlooked an interior service roof-- No view at all. The restaurant was more of a bar than a restaurant-I felt uncomfortable eating there and went out to eat instead.

Hotel is situated in the heart of Madison, within walking distance to the Kohl Center, State Capitol, Farmers Market, State Street, University, many shops and restaurants. Rooms are spacious, clean, comfortable, and quiet, and the WARM CHOCOLATE CHIP COOKIES are soooo good! Staff is very friendly, helpful, and informative, and the restaurant was excellent, especially the waitstaff!

The hotel is excellent. Rooms are great. Service at a level equal with some of the best hotels in the world. Price on the high side but average for the area. Remember it's a College Town and a State Capitol.

This hotel was very clean and comfortable. Close to downtown. Short walking distance to great restaurant. The Staff were nice and the rooms were very clean. The buffet breakfast at the attached restaurant Badgerland Bar and Grill was excellent l. So many choices and great service.

Can't say enough about this location. Its clean, comfy, and offers complementary shuttle service within a 2 mile radius. This service alone was worth the stay! We used it morning, day and night and was never turned down even when we didn't reserve ahead. We stayed at Doubletree, Madison this past weekend while attending our daughter's graduation at the University... More

The DoubleTree Hotel is perfected located near enough State Street and the campus while being just off the main drag and quiet. The staff made every effort to make our visit for graduation go smoothly.

This Double Tree is right in Capital Hill. I was there for business, so didn't really get a chance to explore the area. I hope to get back to Madison again and I'll certainly stay at this location. The employees are friendly, the hotel clean and the hotel restaurant actually has good food.
