Recently stayed at The Edgewater mid-week for a business dinner and event the next day. Accommodations and service were excellent. From the time I drove up to the time I drove away - staff was attentive, courteous and helpful. I had a lakefront facing King size room, clean, well decorated with a very nice view of the lake. Private dinner in the Chef's dining room was well served, and food excellent. Management checked on our group regularly to ensure we were taken care of. The hotel is decorated with a modern "edge" and is uniquely situated on Lake Mendota with a view to the North of the UW union lakefront area. A few blocks from the Capitol Square area - this hotel is convenient to both the downtown and UW area. Will come back.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The Edgewater is the proud revival of an historic hotel, right on the shores of Lake Mendota, adjacent to the University of Wisconsin and steps from the state Capitol, in the heart of downtown Madison. The restored property maintains the classic facade of its predecessor, now called The Langdon Building, and a new tower, The Wisconsin Building, all with completely new interiors, several restaurants, a magnificent spa, ballrooms, and a large plaza that connects both hotel guests and the public with the beautiful waters of the lake. The hotel has 202 guest rooms, the majority offering gorgeous lake views, including presidential suites and studios with kitchenettes. The Edgewater Spa provides fitness and personal training overlooking Lake Mendota, as well as full service, customized hair, makeup, nail services and relaxing massage. Restaurant options range from The Statehouse for distinctive dining, to The Boathouse, a bar and restaurant in the great Wisconsin tradition of casual waterfront spots, The Icehouse for very casual dining, and The Cafe, for coffee and lighter fare throughout the day. Meeting and banquet facilities range from The Grand Ballroom and Mendota Ballroom, both in the Wisconsin Building, to The Red Crown Club on top of the Langdon Building, offering versatility and spectacular views of Lake Mendota. The Plaza lies at the heart of The Edgewater between The Langdon Building and the Wisconsin Building, almost an acre, open to the public with regularly scheduled outdoor events, concerts and celebrations, converting in winter to a skating rink. ... more less
