My husband and I stayed on the Governor's Club level. It was worth it! The appetizers and drinks were super. The staff worked hard to clear away dirty dishes and make sure our needs were met. The breakfast in the morning was spectacular. The coffee was hot and fresh. The pastries were also fresh and clearly homemade. The cheesy eggs... More

Decided at the last minute to book overnight room during Art Fair on the Square. Concourse had a king room available. Somewhat pricey but the location can't be beat, just central to everything. We asked for a quiet room and the front desk accommodated us with a room on a high floor. Room was standard, updated modern hotel, nice bath,... More

My teenaged son and I stayed here recently while attending a conference at Monona Terrace. We originally wanted to stay at the Hilton but it was booked and we chose the Concourse - so glad we did. It was nice to be right next to the Capitol and we enjoyed the walk over to Monona Terrace. The Concourse staff was... More

Lovely and independent hotel with extra helpful staff. Beds were the best I have slept in. Beautiful lobby and a handy Starbucks. Pool was nice and warm, with a bubbly jacuzzi and ping pong/foosball game room that looked popular. Building exterior was uninviting though, and sad to pay $10/day more on parking, after spending $200/night, but we did have a... More

I was here for an event with activities also in the hotel but we relished in the 'Presidential Club' level- great view from our room plus nightly appetizers and desserts in the the club. My daughter loved having a special golden key to get to the top floors. It's pricey but fun for an experience.

This is a rewrite of a previous review: We have stayed at the Concourse a number of times before for our overnight visits to Madison from the Milwaukee area. It is very conveniently located.

In town for a couple of nights for a business trip and I will say I was impressed. The staff was very courteous and rather helpful. The rooms were cleanly and huge at that. Located in the heart of everything so you can walk to the Capitol, the Old Fashioned, State St and even the UW-Madison campus. They even have... More

Honestly, from the outside, the property looks pretty drab. But once you are inside, it's a winning experience. The entire building has been recently renovated (lobby, restaurant, guest rooms) and is nicely done. The staff are incredible. The rooms are clean and spacious.
