Great location, great view of the lake, clean rooms. The employees at the front desk were not the nicest people, just a bad attitude. Happier talking to each other than the actual customers. Finally, the WiFi was absolutely horrible. It was nonexistent in my room and when I asked the front desk where I would get better access I received... More

Thank you for taking time to give us your feedback Tessa. I am surprised to hear of your front desk staff perception, but will address it right away. This is not typical for us at all. Please know that we will have a newly upgraded WiFi delivery network in place by early September to correct those issues. If you are... More

Thank you for taking the time to write about us Sasha. I am so glad everything came out alright. Perhaps they didn't explain that when our self parking is full we offer complimentary, paid by the hotel, parking remotely or the option of keeping your car here with valet. I am sorry about that misunderstanding. I hope we have the... More

This is a wonderful hotel with lovely amenities that has views of the river and the capital building. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The rooms were very nice, clean, and quiet. It was nice to find it so close to everything that we needed.

I picked this hotel because it is attached to the conference center where my meetings were held. I really liked the staff so I would stay there again because the rate was good but I was not crazy about the room. It was just "okay" and the wifi was bad. Fortunately I wasn't in it very much so it was... More

Thanks Linda for giving us your review. I am glad you pointed out the WiFi, as we are just weeks away from a full distribution network upgrade that will bring our service up beyond current demand. I really hope you will give us another chance to have you as our guest. Thanks also for pointing out our great staff. I... More

I have to travel to Madison on business at least twice a month, and I've stayed here on several occasions. The rooms are large & comfortable, the staff always makes sure to recognize that I am in the Honors program, and the location is great. Also, make sure to grab a drink in the bar--it is small, but the service... More

Thank you for taking the time to give your feedback as it means a great deal to us.

Best Hilton property! Staff is excellent. The venue is phenomenal with a view of the Wisconsin State Capitol on one side and Lake Menona on the other. Walking distance to just about anything. Great restaurant - The Chophouse - in the hotel.

Went back to Madison for my nephew's wedding and enjoyed meeting family in a city in which I used to live. Being just off the Capital Square (we were there in time for the Farmers Market) and minutes from State Street and the Museum made our limited time easy to feel like we got to do more than wedding events....

We stayed at the Hilton for our son's wedding weekend. Also we had a rehearsal dinner and welcome party there. The setting, service, accommodations were all fantastic. The staff worked very hard to make everything right. Everyone from the bell men to the wait staff were friendly, caring people.

Congratulations on your son's marriage Larry! You are so right....we are wedding central. Honestly it is one of the things we enjoy most, so I am glad to hear that it showed in our team's service approach. If you are looking for a first anniversary gift, think of a stay with us! We would love to have them or you... More

What a wonderful stay at the Hilton in Madison. Right on the lake with fantastic views. A beautiful sunrise to greet each day (yes, I am a morning person). Steps away from the downtown with lots of great restaurants and activities. Great hotel with a fantastic location for enjoying the best Madison has to offer.

This is a good spot to stay if you want to be in the middle of the downtown Madison experience. The lake views are gorgeous. The hotel is clean, modern and comfortable. There is a bar and restaurant on-site. The service is friendly and helpful.
