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.

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

I spent two nights in this renovated Union South. The room was comfortable with a huge bed decked out with Bucky Badger and "On Wisconsin". You know where you are, with views of the football stadium at Camp Randall to the west. It is located in the heart of the bio-tech side of campus- the College of Agriculture. Downstairs the... More

I've stayed at Union South on several occasions over the past several years. The property sits atop of the new union, so you're pretty much in a centralized location on the UW campus. There are food options downstairs, as well as a coffee shop and convenience store. The rooms are nicely appointed, but are beginning to show a little wear.... More

My wife and I stayed here recently. The facility is beautiful. Lots of Wisconsin touches from the pictures on the wall to the pillows on the bed. The facility is modern and clean. We had a king room with a nice walk-in shower. The room included a flat screen TV, fridge, and coffee maker. The facility itself has lots to... More

Great stay while visiting my daughter at Madison. The bedding was awesome (I ended up purchasing some to take home)! Expensive hotel if you don't catch a discount deal. The bar is very nice and staff was friendly.

This hotel is right on campus - so convenient if you are touring the school. A few issues - if you sleep late and miss maid service - you are out of luck for the day - they slip a note under your door telling you that you can call down for towels. The other thing that bothered me was... More
