“Excellent Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 26, 2014

The hotel is just excellent, location was awesome, just 5 minutes away from the busy state street and the magnificent state capital. Room was clean, excellent view for Lake Mendota, staff were friendly and helpful. Sure will stay in the hotel for my next visit.

My wife and I received a gift certificate from our daughter for our 40th Wedding Anniversary. We stayed in a Suite on a corner with views out 2 sides. The view of Lake Mendota at night is spectacular. Slowly sipping room service coffee in the early AM looking out at the lake is Magical! In my considerable experience, few if any hotels match the Edgewater for service and gentility. I'm a sucker for superior hospitality and The Edgewater exemplifies that! Have had several meals in the dining room--Admiralty Room. In Madison, it is incomparable for over all elegance, service, food quality and location (on the lake with floor to ceiling windows!).

Not to be maudlin, but drink a toast to my dear departed wonderful wife Anna!

Room Tip: Try to get a Lake View room. It's perhaps "the" reason to stay there! Also, dining at...

I came here for the best birthday celebration a friend of mine could experience. I can preach forever of fancy hotels which are epic fails beneath the surface. I had no complaints here. Excellent staff. Excellent views of Lake Mendota (and the Wisconsin state capitol from the front entrance). The bartender at the party was very keen and knowledgeable in the preparation of every drink for such a distinct caliber of guests. The catering was beyond lovely. I would love to celebrate my birthday here sometime. Or at least just get away...on the edge...at this lovely place.

Room Tip: Because of the place being constructed on a bluff on Lake Mendota, some rooms (and banquet rooms) ar...
