This hotel is centrally located if you are looking for a downtown Madison experience. This is a great location if you are coming to town for a basketball or football game or plan on heading to State St. or either lake. The restaurant, The Badgerland Grill, is a decent option if you're looking for something easy. Rooms are clean and... More

From entering the hotel until leaving this was a great place to stay. We got the last room here when only one room was left and were afraid that we might just be stuck in the worst room, but we were happily surprised to get a clean room, a comfortable bed and a quiet area to rest. As Hilton Honor... More

I stayed here with my daughter for her orientation session at UW and it was my first visit to Madison and the midwest. Loved the room, free shuttle from airport and around town, and very friendly staff. It was very clean and comfortable and I will definitely stay here again.

The staff and team at this hotel are great, and the upgrades to the Honors floors are perfect. Parking is free versus the Hampton, and the breakfast is hard to beat. Like many business folks, I have to juggle costs between the Hilton, Hampton, and Doubletree, but value wise, this hotel does a better job than the two other Hilton... More

Free parking, free shuttle, nice rooms, friendly staff. Breakfast is worth the extra $10/night if you have time to make special orders. Location is close to UWM campus, State Street and many local restaurants and bars.

We enjoyed our four day stay at the hotel for a family wedding. Our room was clean and smelled fresh. A highlight for us was having the shuttle service take us to several venues for the wedding and picking us up!! Also had the shuttle pick us up and drop us off at the airport- a real bonus!
