The Wisconsin Union Hotel, located within UW's Union South, is an excellent experience and even better value (especially as a Union Member). Everything is UW branded, great on-campus experience. The rooms are modern and very comfortable. The beds, pillows and linens are top-notch. The room is very quiet, no outside noise or noise from other rooms. Free super-speed wifi. On-site... More

Very pleased with our stay. The staff was gracious and their service was given with a smile. The room was comfortable and the lights were controlled by inserting your room key into an energy efficient control. Very cool! Parking is underground which would be great in the winter. Though breakfast is not included the Union Grill downstairs made delicious breakfast... More

Our family of five stayed at the Union Hotel king suite for a week. We brought sleeping bags (kid preference) and enjoyed the kitchenette and dual televisions. The bedding was new and comfortable. There was plenty of space for coats and clothing on hangers. We were offered maid service daily, but did not always need it. Parking accommodated our (7... More

Our room was not perfect but what is nice is that this staff did all they could to make it right. Then, the manager credited my card for almost all of the cost of the room with some apologies too. I would really recommend this hotel for visiting U of Wisconsin. It is clean, new, and located in the same... More

We weren't sure where to stay when visiting last summer. We'll never have to wonder again. This is the place every time! Careful if SOAR is going on, because it will be swamped, especially the parking area. We got in early the first day and never had to move our car again during the days. The evenings and early mornings... More

Great room, comfortable bed, super location at Union South. The construction for the new facilities took some time, but WOW was it worth it. If you're an alumnus or alumna, do yourself a favor and stay at Union South next time you're in Madison. You won't regret it!

Clean, spacious room. Spectacular quality of sleep. Silent, in spite of University Avenue nearby, perfect access to the University of Wisconsin. Staff was courteous and thoughtful. Free Wi-Fi internet worked well in my third floor room. Thumbs up for Union South Hotel!

Our second stay at Union South was last weekend for Graduation Weekend. Our first stay was 2 years ago, and we had a very pleasant stay in the (then) new Union South Hotel. This time upon arrival there were some problems with the room, which we brought to the hotel's attention. The problems were immediately attended to, professionally and cheerfully.... More
