I wound up moving a mutli-day meeting to this Holiday Inn on very short notice. Their space was just perfect for my group of 50 people. We pulled everything together in a very short time (and over the holiday!) and everything went off without a hitch! My meeting room was set up exactly as I had requested. The staff was able to immediately adjust to our last minute changes in our agenda without any issues or problems. The changes appeared seamless to my meeting attendees, which makes ME look good! LOVE when I can work with a venue that does that for me! Our meals and breaks were setup timely and we had plenty of food. We scheduled one dinner onsite, a buffet, and the quality was outstanding! I even had several rather picky members of our group compliment me on the meal selection and quality!
We were there for two and half days, and everyone in the hotel was wonderful! The front desk staff was very helpful with my various little requests and everyone who passed me at my "workstation" outside our meeting space was always quick to ask if I needed anything or to inquire how things were going.
My guestroom was quite large and very comfortable. I found no issues at all with the cleanliness of my room either, other than the fact that the housekeeper set a glass outside my door the first morning I was there, and it was still there at the end of the day when I returned to change for dinner. I ended up picking it up. There are two other minor things that some travelers might feel detract from the quality of the rooms. The A/C unit in the room is a bit noisy. Now that doesn't bother me particularly, because I'm used to street noise and having a TV on.. so that truly wasn't an issue for me, but I know that there are a lot of folks who can't sleep if there is any sort noise, so that could be a problem for you if you are one of those types. The other problem I experienced was the very poor Wi-Fi connectivity in my room. In fact, I would say about half the time, I wasn't able to get a strong enough signal to stay connected to the internet. I will say, however, that I had absolutely no issues with signal strength or speed outside of our meeting room and that's when I really needed to be online, so overall, that wasn't a huge concern to me either.
This property is located in a very nice area on the western side of the Madison area, actually in Middleton, mixed in with office buildings. They do offer shuttle service to and from the Dane County Airport, which for my meeting, was a definite plus, as over half of my group was traveling from out of state. There are quite a few mid-price restaurant options in close proxmity to this hotel, as well as a very nice shopping "center" (for lack of a better term) called Greenway Station. In good weather, it's actually not a bad walk.
I've worked with other hotels owned by this same ownership group (Wisco hotels) and I have always had nothing but the best experiences with all of them. They have figured out the key to hiring quality people who truly care about taking care of their customers and making their experience with them the best they possibly can. In all honesty, it was my relationship with these folks that brought me to this hotel.. It truly will not be the last time I reach out to them to schedule a meeting.
