I stayed here for a visit to the UW Madison School of Business. The hotel was a few blocks away and was within walking distance. As an Honors member, I had a very nice room. I asked for breakfast to go and the staff was very accommodating. The breakfast buffet was quite good and worth the $13. All employees were... More

We had a great night stay at the Double Tree. Easily walk-able to all of our downtown activities. Very friendly staff. We had a suite with an adjoining queen room and easily could have slept 9 people! Delicious cookies, as always! Free parking, free internet, free breakfast!

The staff were very friendly and accommodating. With HHonors benefits, before arrival I confirmed the upgrade option through the e-mail. We arrived near lunch and were told the room was upgraded but not ready yet. We were happy to simply leave the car in the parking garage and walk to the capital. When returned to the hotel, there had been... More

My husband and I stay at the DoubleTree in Madison every year for the Great Taste of the Midwest. It's very clean, comfortable, and you get a cookie at check in. During the Great Taste the hotel provides a shuttle that drops us off and picks us up, which is very convenient. This hotel is also located right near the... More

We loved the warm cookies and the pool and breakfast was good with a lot of choices. The beds were quite comfortable, the staff was friendly and helpful, and the bathroom was clean. What more can one ask of a hotel?

A great place to stay near UW Madison with reasonable prices and great service. The suite we had was on an upper floor, quiet, and quite spacious. The staff was friendly and helpful. I will return to this hotel whenever I next visit Madison.

Nice hotel, very clean and very friendly staff. Room was perfect and quiet which I appreciate while traveling for work, very modern with a large frig. Bar/restaurant attached and the food and drinks are good. Spotted Cow on tap, yum. Good location near Kohl Center, bars and restaurants. U of W is not very far either, walking distance.
