“ANI Training and Get-a-way”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 8, 2013

I was there for the ANI State training on Thursday and Friday and then my husband joined me for the weekend. It was very comfortable in both rooms and the transition from my working stay to my leisure stay was seamless! My colleagues and I enjoyed the training, food and all the ammenities. And my husband and I enjoyed everything as well! Thank you.

The Concourse Hotel has the Governor's Club which is worth the extra expense if you "enjoy a few cocktails". There are hors d'oeuvres around 5 pm and a dessert buffet right before the open bar closes. There is a small, hot breakfast buffet in the morning which has great coffee!

The rooms are clean and modern. The pillows are pretty hard so you may want to bring your own.

The location is perfect for downtown excursions. Even though it rained while we walked to our destinations the hotel offered us huge umbrellas to keep us dry.

Underground parking is included.

The actual restaurant is very good, but a little expensive.

Went to Madison recently for a weekend get away with my husband, this hotel is at the center of downtown and walking distance to the restaurants’ and bars we wanted to visit. The hotel is very nice and the staff was friendly. Made the reservation through a 3rd party website for a king room, when we got here they front personnel said it was for 2 queens, but was able to give us a king room on an upgraded floor with no additional cost. The rooms where nice and I enjoyed relaxing before dinner in the indoor pool/hot tub.
We did not eat at the hotel, so am not sure about the food at their restaurants or bars.

Tickets to a show at the Overture made us decide to just make it a getaway and stay in town for the night. We chose the Concourse because of it's location and we were no disappointed at all. Stayed in the Governor's Club which is the way to go. There is open bar time with hors d'oeuvres and a continental breakfast in the morning. We were greeted at the door when we arrived by a very friendly staff. The bartender was absolutely awesome and had tons of information about places to stop at while in town. The room was beautiful and the bed was so comfortable which is hard to find in a hotel. We will be back Thank you Madison Concourse for making our stay so special!!

The door locks to the rooms are broken and they poison people with food at their large receptions. They do not care if the guests are old or pregnant as they will still serve the contaminated food. Do NOT stay or eat at The Madison Concourse Hotel!

We went to the Henry Vilas Zoo, partied on state street, shopped for gifts, roamed the Capitol building, and played in the Childrens museum as well as swimming and eating in the Hotel. This hotel was fun, friendly, affordable, and the staff were helpful and the shuttle was an unexpected perk. A great place to stay and a great town to play in for all ages.

Room Tip: ask for a high floor with a view of the capital building

Green Features: I chose this hotel over others because --> They are involved in recycling, composting, water and energy efficiency, and the use of non-toxic paints and pest control.

Comfortable, well-appointed, well-managed hotel right near the State Capitol and the University of Wisconsin campus. Good=sized rooms, helpful staff. Free shuttle to airport. decent fitness area. Worth splurging for the Governor's Club floor and accompanying food and drink.
