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

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.

We stayed at The Red 4 nights for our daughters wedding, as did many of our relatives and friends. The atmosphere was hip  but still warm and friendly. Breakfast at the restaurant was great and reasonably priced. Here's my rub with The Red.  With a day after  wedding picnic planned in a park, the weather was not cooperating so alternate... More

This was my 5th trip to Madison for the mini marathon. We need a pet friendly hotel and stayed here last year as well. I love the hotel style and location. Everything worked well and we love tge little attention our pets get. I think our room was the same as last year. Beds are comfy and roomy, cleaning staff... More

Time to move my son back to school. We stayed here again and it keeps getting better. Great location, close to everything, yet far enough from the chaos. We have stayed here before, and each time, we feel like a very welcomed client, not just a guest.

We had such a great stay @ HotelRed during the Madison Mini Marathon. When we got there, the front desk personnel was warm and friendly. Offered us a complimentary cocktail-of-the-day and truffles from a chocolate shoppe down the road. We had a view of Camp Randall with a balcony to boot; the room itself (a king suite) was gigantic and... More

Before booking my room anywhere, I read the reviews so I was aware of many of the complaints against HotelRED. My wife and I went there for a one day visit to Madison and just wanted to hang out away from the kids. HotelRED is a unique hotel and not for everybody. The use of concrete throughout the hotel (floors,... More

Just got back from a 3 night stay at this hotel. We stayed with my daughter and family with a one year old who was crawling. The floor was dirty when we came in and even after 3 phone calls and one person to person contact the floor never got cleaned, it was FILTHY, not even swept. Kitchenette very sparse,... More
