“Exceptional Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

My husband and I recently stayed at the Concourse Hotel and had a fabulous experience! We have three beautiful kids (four and under), and were just looking for a quiet and relaxing weekend getaway. We had tremendous service throughout our stay -- from the Front Desk staff to Room Service and the Governor's Club Lounge. We left feeling pampered and rejuvinated and will definitely go back! We highly recommend the Madison Concourse Hotel and Governor's Club and won't even consider staying anywhere else when we visit Madison.

This was our second stay at the Concourse for the "Girlfriends Shopping Weekend" package that the hotel offers...and we are already planning for next year!
The staff; from reservation confirmation, to front desk, to Governor's club, to hospitality, was so attentive, friendly and accommodating that it made for such a relaxing and pleasant get away.

* This was NOT my first stay. I have had the pleasure of knowing this hotel for nearly a decade. From the moment you walk in with the first "Hello, Welcome to the Madison Concourse" until it's time to NOT say, "Goodbye"; but rather, "We hope to see and serve you again.". Midwestern Hospitality has had a new address in my book...Madison, Wisconsin. I have been fortunate to have an annual conference there for quite a few years now. It used to be at a good hotel; one of a chain. But the Madison Concourse is a "smooth" operator; INDEPENDENT which makes you wonder...STOP wondering. EVERYONE there is a stakeholder in the success of the property...I wouldn't call it a "hotel". The expression "home away from home" fits most appropriately. Great location...Terrific amenities...Tremendous staff - The Complete Package.

Room Tip: "Live LARGE. Get a room on the Governor's Club Level. Relax. Enjoy. Leave It To The Staff...

We spent three days at the Madison Concourse for our winter "conditioner" for our convertible club. Living in Wisconsin requires a lot of conditioning during January! The staff at the Concourse could not have been better. The rooms are wonderful and the Governor's Club is unbelievable. The only complaint is the parking situation but they do offer valet parking at no charge to alleviate the problem. We look forward to our stay there every January.

Room Tip: The parking ramp below the hotel is very close and usually full - safe yourself some frustration an...

We had our wedding reception here in May 2001 and it was wonderful. Now we come back regularly to celebrate our anniversary and hang out in downtown Madison. It's close to the Capitol Square with a lot of great restaurants and bars!

Room Tip: Ask for a room at the end of the hall. They are a bit bigger and quieter if you can get them.

The hotel was nice and the amenities were typical. The parking garage was TINY in so many ways. To be fair, it was under construction, but my fiance had to duck in the garage where pipes hung down. Due to the construction, the parking was free, but according to the front desk staff parking is no free typically. The room was nice but the location the noise from state street, intoxicated college students woke me up a couple of times on a Friday evening.

My Husband and I stay at the Concourse Governor's Club when we need a weekend get away.We love the drinks,appetizers,evening dessert and breakfast which is all included in the package.
The staff is always helpful,courteous and the rooms are always immaculate.
I mentioned that it was our 30+ anniversary when checking in and after dinner we returned to our room and their was a chilled bottle of champagne waiting for us.
We always find something to do within a few blocks of the Hotel and of course always stroll down State St.to do a little shopping.
Give it a try,you wont be disappointed!
