It was recommended that I book my night in Morristown at the Madison Hotel since it is here that my company, whose headquarters is in Morristown, has an agreement. It is located directly across the street from the Madison train depot where one can catch a train into New York City. What a treat it was.
I do a lot of traveling abroad and have spent more nights that I can count in England. While most of of the inns and non-chain hotels in England are quaintly attractive, many of them are poorly maintained, outdated and simply not functional for a business traveler. Because of this, I can't wait to get my business finished and head home.
The Madison looks like an authentic English Inn but with one key difference. The Madison has been completely updated and well thought out for a business traveler. The decor is decidedly English in style. If I hadn't known better, I'd have thought I was in England when I entered the attractive lobby.
The people at reception were friendly and helpful and along with my key, I was provided a bottle of water. The room was mall but very attractively decorated. It was cozy. And the bed was a dream machine. Everything about the room was well thought out for the business traveler right down to the high speed internet.
The next morning, I was treated to a pretty standard continental breakfast that was plentiful including great coffee. Breakfast is served in a comfortable lobby eating area complete with a roaring fire place. The office personnel had received a rather heavy package on my behalf which was properly handled and with which assistance was provided when I needed to fetch it. They also rendered immediate assistance when we needed directions in Morristown. There was plenty of free parking at the hotel.
There is an adjacent bar and restaurant that looks just like an English pub from the outside. I didn't have the opportunity to experience it but the next time I will make it a point. Hopefully they have an overhauled the English menu too because in my humble opinion, good English food is an oxymoron! :)
The parking lot and main entrance is around the back of the hotel, not on Madison.
