I spent 3 nights here for a meeting at the hotel. Loved the decor The rooms are very spacious, and mine had a balcony - a nice amenity for the one day of the trip when the weather cooperated. The hotel is well located for access to UW and downtown. If you are going to a game at Camp Randall,... More

HotelRed is nice if like you like super trendy and cement. The room did not have a warm feeling to it - not unlike being in a parking structure. They really talk about being "pet friendly", but I did not get the feeling that they were very accommodating. Hotel staff needs to work on guest relations and follow through. If... More

I just returned from a four night stay at HotelRed. I found the hotel to be fun and relaxing in many ways. I appreciated having a bathrobe, slippers, large bed, a Keurig, and Aveda bath products. The shower was also top notch. However, a few inconsistencies made the the stay "average" rather than very good or excellent. According to the... More

Normally not a big fan of the more modern hotels but liked this one. Comfortabe rooms, super nice staff and good food! Enjoyed the nice touch with the little table top games in the lobby. Two minor complaints, wish the bathroom was fully enclosed as woke my wife when I was showering and also not a problem with the concrete... More

HotelRED was in the perfect location for meetings at the University of Wisconsin, located across from the Camp Randall Stadium. Helpful staff picked us up from the airport in the hotel's courtesy shuttle and took us to a number of other locations throughout our stay. The hotel was elegant and modern. We enjoyed the happy hour at the bar downstairs... More

Ive always been more of a traditional style hotel lover, but this hotel was a fun change. It's ultra modern, industrial look really made it pop. The folks in the lobby made it easy to check in, and parking is free. The room was quite spacious with a comfy king size bed and a queen size pull out couch. The... More

Was only able to stay one night here due to other commitments, wished I could have stayed longer. Location is great, close to campus and State St. action. (But not TOO close) Thought noise could be an issue but was not. Staff was friendly and helpful. Room was good sized and very clean. Bathroom was exceptional. Everything has a very... More

I have stayed in many of the Hotels near campus in Madison. Proximity to Camp Randall and the South Union is very good. At this end of Madison, this hotel is a must stay. Younger traveling companions say this is their favorite hotel and they loved the bathroom amenities and shower. Great Badger spirit.

Madison is a rough place to visit in February, but this boutique hotel was clean, modern, and interesting. The staff was helpful. And the artisan chocolates they give to all visitors were tasty! Worth a visit

Thank you very much for the nice review. I am very happy to hear you enjoyed your visit (and the Maurie’s chocolates!). Madison certainly is a rough place to visit in February, particularly this winter. I grew up in the Minnesota and can’t remember a winter as bad as this. Hopefully you’ll be able to visit again in the spring... More

I went to visit my son, and chose the Hotelred because the pictures looked great and thought it would be the right fit. While the accommodations were beautiful, and the staff very accommodating , the distance from state at and the university was just too far.
