I stayed 2 nights at this hotel for a business conference at Monona Terrace. Beautiful king room with corner views of the lake. Clean, quiet, and couldn't beat the convenient location, but it's too expensive to stay here for any other reason!

Thank you for the review, I am glad that you enjoyed your time with us! The King Corner room is one of my favorite room types in the hotel because of the view and the large amount of natural light. I am happy that you enjoyed the King Corner room as much as I do! More

Our favorite Hilton property, and the only place we like to stay while in Madison. Another wonderful stay. We notified the staff that we were staying for our 20th wedding anniversary, and Stephanie graciously gave us a marvelous upgrade on our room. We were also treated to champagne on ice, chocolate covered strawberries and a hand-written note from some of... More

We had stayed at this hotel a couple years ago and found it more than acceptable, especially because of its location overlooking Lake Monona. We were given an overpriced room right next to the elevator. We asked for a different room. Not much more available, but we were given a room nearby. It needed a redo and a recleaning. The... More

The place to stay in Madison. Great service, and convenient to downtown Madison. Views of Lake Monona if on the south side of the hotel. If in town for a convention, this is the most convenient place to stay. The Chophouse is excellent, with great food and service.

We stayed one night during our road trip with our friends. We got a view over the lake and it was beautiful. The room was big, the beds a little bit to soft though, but still ok. We had a refrigerator on our room and that's always nice. The only bad thing was a strange noise coming from somewhere that... More

You can go casual or elegant at this versatile hotel. It’s nice enough to impress your friends, but not so pretentious that they will think you’re snooty. Do you want an upscale experience? Then dine at the on-site Chops restaurant. Wanna be casual? Walk to one of many casual restaurants in the neighborhood. The indoor pool, although small, is attractively... More

They were great. All of our extensive flower arrangements were stored in their coolers. They even helped us with moving them to the Terrace. We can't thank them enough. If another family member wants to marry in Madison, we will recommend the Hilton.

We were in town for family wedding so booked at wedding rate--otherwise not sure I would pay the regular rate. Room was not very clean--stuff under bed, spider webs in windows, spots in carpet, worn and dated furnishings, including beds...
