We love this hotel! The interior is bursting with personality. Staff was fabulous. Great location. We walked everywhere. There are plenty of delicious restaurants close by. State Street and UW Campus are only a block away. We will be back!

Very clean, but: While the food was tasty, it made this New Yorker blush with its prices. The manager had an employee stand at the door to greet people, I guess. He was there for over an awkward hour!

My family and I stayed at the Graduate Madison on our way through town, looking for something different near the university. The hotel is unique, goofy, and fun from the key cards to the wall paper, yet the rooms and beds are well-appointed and comfortable. It is an older, small building with sometimes tight quarters.

The hotel was perfect for our conference needs. The staff was kind, the room was pleasant, and we were within very close walking distance to the conference center, and convenient to all things Madison.

My family had made plans for an 8 o'clock show at a comedy club on State Street. Since we are all from southeastern Wisconsin, I opted for a Saturday 'Over-Nighter' in Madison. After some research I booked The Graduate mainly due to it's location 1/2 a block from State Street and the Lake and a short walking distance to the... More

Cute boutique hotel - very clean and very convenient. Also provides shuttle service to and from airport. Only downsides are terrible shower heads (like taking a shower in a drizzle!) and alarm clocks in the room.

I just returned from a 5-day conference at the Pyle Center on the campus of UW, in Madison, WI, and stayed at the Graduate Madison. It was a wonderful experience! The hotel has recently reopened and all the rooms and public areas have been redecorated in a quirky, modern-meets-retro theme. It is a feast for your eyes! The beds, and... More

Great boutique hotel in the heart of downtown Madison. Friendly staff. Clean modern updated rooms. Delicious grab and go healthy snacks from Portage Pi. Walking distance to capital and great restaurants.

The Graduate is two blocks from the Memorial Union and a short block from State Street. In other words, it is right in the middle of where you want to be for a visit to the University of Wisconsin. The size of the rooms is adequate. There appeared to be some construction going on, but it did not impact our... More

Overall, I'm a bit disappointed by the quality of the establishment. I was a frequent client of the Campus Inn when traveling to Madison for work, and the Graduate feels kind of "cheap" in comparison. The renovation seemed rushed in order to reopen the doors (evidenced by the main lobby floor buckling/bubbling up and construction on half the building being... More
