You are right in the middle of the action for a football Saturday. The Badger Bash is a cool event and the walk to and from the stadium is very easy. It also includes free parking which is great on game day.

The hotel isn't fancy and doesn't have many amenities--no valet, bellman, etc--but it is modern, clean, and well-appointed. It looks exactly as pictured. It's right above the student union and there are several food choices, including a yummy ice cream place and Peets Coffee.

We stayed here while touring U of Wisconsin. The staff is very helpful and friendly. The location right on campus can't be beat. The hotel is adjacent to the student center and guests can access the bowling alley, pool tables in basement, restaurant on first floor plus Pete's coffee. The hotel is quiet, a little bit basic but perfect for... More

Great location, very nice room, amenities, flat screen TV, Kuerig coffee maker & free under ground parking. The rate was reasonable. Free WiFi was quite slow. However & I'm generally not hard to please. Parking space is very tight with huge concrete pillars. Bring a small car if you have one. In the first room (they upgraded & moved us)... More

We've been feeding our kids UW propaganda for years. This stay was icing on the cake. We loved the Wisconsin-themed, modern decor, great view of the courtyard and Camp Randall, and the location at the new Union South. There were plenty of food options in the building, although I agree with other reviewers that it's not within walking distance of... More

Great size king room, excellent security - had to use your room key to access room floors in elevator. Microwave, nice one-cup coffee maker, if you only want 3 cups of coffee/1 cup tea. Larger than ave. refrig. Desk staff very helpful/friendly. EXPRESS check-in! Convenient under-ground reserved parking for reserved rooms. Lots of towels & in-shower soap, shampoo & conditioner....

We've always enjoyed our stay at the Wisconsin Union Hotel. Close to Camp Randall for graduation and sporting events. The hotel has modern amenities and very clean--so comfortable. We loved the personalized "On Wisconsin" pillows. The desk staff is efficient and gently personable. There is no breakfast included with the stay but the convenience was what was important to us.

Perfect location for a perspective student visit - guided tours start here! Room is nicely appointed and features Badgers colors, etc. Plenty of quick dining options and enclosed parking ramp a plus. Friendly staff and student lounge in lobby area reinforce that "college" feel.

I stayed here for a week. This is a hotel run my the student union or the university. Mostly students from the university manage this hotel and they are very friendly and helpful. The room has everything you would want including a nice coffee/tea machine. There is no room service, in that sense it is mor like a dorm but... More

Our son was getting married in Varsity Hall at Union South, and it was very convenient to stay in there. We had a suite, with a full size kitchen and a separate bedroom. Other wedding guests had regular rooms, and all the rooms were clean, attractively furnished, with UW-Madison art and pillows. Available in the building were several restaurants plus... More
