Shout-out to Julia who gave us tips and guidance to the best local pub/breweries. The hotel itself was nice and up-kept. I was pleasantly surprised of the hotel parking as it was only $15 a night, with in and out privileges! I would definitely come back again.

We came to Madison for the weekend while my daughter attended bball camp at University of Wisconsin-Madison.. nice rooms, but air conditioning wasn't real cold (we kept it on 62!).. 'Shake the Lake' celebration was that Saturday and by the time we got back to hotel, the parking lot was FULL! (You are charged $15per day to park there while... More

We appreciate the candid review. Shake the Lake is one of those times that can stress parking to the limits. I am sorry that we did not have a space set aside for you when you came back. Congratulations will go out to Stephanie though for making it right for you. The Hilton model on breakfast is to offer full,... More

My husband, dog and myself had a terrific night at this Hilton. We splurged for a king bed and a lakeview. We didn't want to leave the room. It was prom night, so we could look down at the terrace and see the weddings and prom participants and then look a little further to the lake. Our bed was comfortable... More

Sounds like a great weekend! I am so glad we could be a part of your nice splurge. You are right, the lakeview is just great. It has such a coastal feel in the summer. We would love to host you, your husband and pup again soon. Thank you for staying with us and the nice review. More

With great views of the lake and a very short walk to the capital square, the Hilton Madison is an excellent choice. It's also connected to the Monona Terrace Convention Center. Pay the extra $$ and ask for a lake view room. The steak house was solid but a tad pricey. The Olive bar is small and can get overwhelmed... More

Thank you kindly Joshua for the great review. Our location combined with the views cannot be matched in Madison. We hope in the near future to redesign Olive to make it flow a little better. I hope to meet you when you come back our way. More

I travel with great frequency for business and have stayed at all levels and types of Hilton and non-Hilton Hotels. This Hilton property is on my top two list for cleanliness, value, and property condition. They also welcome pets. You will not be disappointed...take it from a very seasoned traveler.

I had a beautiful lake and Terrace view. Because of flight delays I arrived 6 hours late. I called the front desk to make sure they hold my room. Everyone that worked there was very friendly and helped me with anything I needed. As for the hotel, it is a great spot to just walk around town or over to... More

The Hilton was an excellent choice for our anniversary weekend. The accommodations were very nice from the comfy bed to the beautiful view. The staff was very friendly and helpful, and the location was unbeatable. I loved the view of Lake Menona. The hotel was a short walk from the Capitol where we got to enjoy the Saturday farmers market... More

My company's annual meeting was being held at the Monona Terrace, and I stayed there for two nights. The service, professionalism and friendliness of the staff was exceptional, the room was spotless, well appointed and the bed was comfortable. The location is extremely convenient to downtown Madison while also being right on the lake. The whole experience was excellent, and... More

Stayed here for a bachlorette party weekend. We had a fairly large group and they were more than accommodating! The staff was very helpful and professional.
