Spent a week in Madison for work. This was my second trip this month and the first time at the Graduate. My only regret is that I didn't know about this place the first time I was here. The Graduate has a funky style which works well in this college town. The rooms were smaller than the rooms you would... More

Loved staying at Graduate Madison. The location is central, just off state street with plenty of shops and restaurants, near campus and the Capitol. I didn't use the parking, but it seems like a reasonable rate for the location. The hotel decor is quirky and contemporary. Everything was clean and modern. My single room was on the small side, but... More

I was in town for a concert at the Orpheum and we stayed at the Graduate due to an airbnb falling through. However, we were very pleasantly surprised by the laid back atmosphere and the clean comfort. Its location in the surprisingly elegant frat row impressed us being recent grads of another big ten school. It was a couple blocks... More

My husband and I had a wonderful stay here a couple of weeks ago and are already going again! The staff is wonderful and helpful. There is a shuttle which can really come in handy on those cold Wisconsin nights that you want to go to dinner or a game. There is a bar/restaurant on the top floor with wonderful... More

My family and I stayed at The Graduate recently and, having been there many times before the renovation, we're blown away by this new facility. The experience was phenomenal - from the check in to the decor to the dining. Without reservation, this in one of new favorite places to stay and the only place we'll stay when business brings...

My husband and I stayed here for a little birthday get away. We picked the Graduate because it looked like a unique hotel and had a great location steps from state street where we planned to spend most of our time.

Thought I'd treat myself for my birthday at The Graduate. No clean rooms at 8 pm at night on NYE...Really? Was led to believe I was put in a King and that was the rationale for an unclean room at this hour. Regret my decision to try this property. An otherwise great day ended on a sour note.

I chose this hotel, because it was within walking distance of the U of W bus stop. I came to Madison for a short visit via the Megabus route from Chicago. The hotel was a three block walk up State State and than over one short block. The reason I mention this , is to let others know of this... More

I spent four nights here for a work trip (Epic training) & I absolutely loved staying here. The website photos don't lie- the decor really is that awesome! The only difference I could discern between the king room I saw online & what I got was the location of the phone. The location is great- 15-20 minutes from the airport,... More

I'm obsessed with this hotel. It's like you step into a Wes Anderson movie that you never want to leave. The lobby is so engaging and cozy... but check in is so quick you won't even have time to instagram every adorable nook and cranny. The elevator bank is quirky and invites a mirror selfie every time.
