Love this gem of a hotel. A tiny bit pricier than other options in the area but the rooms are stylish, comfortable and bright, with nice amenities. The shower knobs didn't work well. But the service is friendly and the food in the lobby restaurant is terrific. It could use some vegetables and healthy options but breakfast is particularly yummy.... More

We booked a 2 room corner suite for a quick girls day/night out in Madison. We all loved the hotel, very modern look and affordable. The suite was perfect for 4 girls with the spacious sitting area & full balcony. Bedrooms were plenty big for 2 girls to share, beds were super comfy and each bedroom had its own bathroom.... More

I would have given the hotel just 1 star, but the staff was very nice so I can't be too harsh. Unfortunately, cleanliness is the number one thing I look for when staying in a hotel and this place was certainly lacking. We had two suites and there was black mold in the showers in both. There were dust bunnies... More

Thank you very much for writing a constructive review of HotelRED. I am very sorry to hear about your stay. We certainly did not meet our own expectations. Every room should be clean and ready for ever guest. We clearly failed with you. I’m working directly with our housekeeping and maintenance to ensure this does not happen again. We have... More

Other reviewers have described the rooms and decor. I love the funky vibe and that it is right across from Camp Randal. Doesn't get any better! The balconies are a fantastic place to take in the game day scene! Loved that it was pet friendly. They had water and bone treats for the dogs that were staying there with a... More

stylish, contemporary, great service and the beds are incredible! The service was outstanding and not too crazy even on game day. Would highly recommend this hotel if you are going to a game. The breakfasts are a must do too!

It was perfect for a game day place! As convenient to Camp Randall as you can get. The service even on a game day was great! The rooms were clean, quiet and comfortable. The bed linens are soooo comfortable! We enjoyed our 2 night stay and will be back.

We stayed at the HotelRed 9/12/14 for a birthday party for my husband. We were extremely pleased with the staff, facility and location of this hotel. This was a non UW football game weekend so we felt as if we had the property to ourselves. It was fantastic. Service was A+++. The staff shuttled us our son and his roommates... More

I booked the HotelRED while visiting our son in Madison. We were able to book a 2 bedroom unit for 3 of us, which was perfect. A couple of suggestions-our room was not ready, and it would have been nice to have been offered a phone call when the room was ready. I had to suggest this to the person... More

A unique, smaller, friendly hotel in Madison, built with modern design elements but very quiet and comfortable for a good night's rest--right across from the Badger football stadium. From the rosy colored balcony surround to the poured concrete floors, somehow, this boutique hotel has found a way to also blend in with an older established surrounding neighborhood. The staff treated... More

4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 5, 2014

Wife, two kids and dog had a great time. Very accommodating and friendly staff. Modern, comfortable rooms and bed. Only thing that prevents me from giving it a five rating is I felt the menu options for dinner were somewhat limited and pricey for family dining. Overall, a great stay. I would return.
