We are on state number 44 and very glad we stayed here. What a pleasant place. The staff was friendly and the rooms are very comfortable. We were convenient to Frank Loyd Wright's Unitarian Church, Henry Vilas' Zoo, The State Capital and of course the Univeristy of Wisconsin's stadium. It rained all day but the HotelRed staff provided us umbrellas... More

There's no place like Madison...relaxed, trendy, personal. HotelRed gave us a totally different experience from the boring chain hotels across the city. This was our second tour in the hotel and,once again, we felt welcomed from the minute we walked in. The hotel's somewhat austere stadium-like appearance (after all, it is right across the street from Camp Randall!) is balanced... More

I was in Madison for business in May 2015 I went on Hotel Tonight and found this hotel last minute at less than a Hampton Inn or Courtyard I only spent one night here, and didn't use the restaurant or any amenities. The lobby looked fun and nice. The rooms had concrete floors , nice bed. The shower looked it... More

Hotel Red is a unique and interesting option in Madison. During my stay the hotel was clean, quiet, and relaxing. The modern design is well thought out and my room was nicely designed. I will definitely stay here again on my next trip to Madison.

Hotel Red was the perfect site for UW Madison graduation, watching all the people at Camp Randall from the balcony was great, the room was spacious to have guests meet there for the event, super sofa bed.

We didn't stay over night on this visit but enjoyed the bar scene. Hors d'oeuvres and drinks were very good in their light and airy outside sidewalk bar with a view of Camp Randall. This would be the place to stay to enjoy a UW sport event.

The hotel is pretty good. The beds are comfortable and the staff at the front desk is really nice and helpful. As hotels go, it is not bad. Madison isn't replete with great hotels. Location for football games, graduation, etc. is perfect (right across the street from Camp Randall Stadium). Because it was UW Graduation weekend, you get gouged for... More

Challenging location. Cold concrete floors in the guest rooms. No drink/dining options effectively after 9 in the hotel or nearby neighborhood. Mattress practically on the floor. Not worth $200/night for Madison WI.
