We've stayed numerous times at the Governor's Club at the Concourse Hotel in Madison. Every stay has been amazing. From the friendly staff when we check in to the talented bartenders in the Governor's Club that serve our drinks. I'm actually heading back there to celebrate my 63rd birthday this winter - can't wait!

The Hotel is strategically placed!! Very close to the Capital. The rooms are very spacious and clean. The staff are very courteous and friendly.

They even made sure we had adjoining... More

We chose The Concourse Hotel for the location and proximity to The Overture Theater. We got way more than we bargained for. First off the location is perfect for anything you care to do in downtown Madison. Walk to anywhere while you leave your car parked safely in the undercar garage. We caught a quick meal in the bar and... More

We found this hotel to be fantastic. Check in was a breeze, friendly staff, room was clean and comfortable. We enjoyed our 1 night stay at this hotel. Some negatives (which didn't really affect the overall rating for us) were: - Underground parking lot was so cramped but can't do much about that - 3 elevators constantly in use during... More

This was out third stay at the Madison Concourse. The hotel is in a terrific location - near the State Capital and not far from the U of W. Excellent dining options all around.

We had a great weekend stay in August. It's an easy walk to the Saturday morning farmers market, state street an UW. Rooms are pleasant, clean and beds are comfy. Elevators are a bit slow especially at check out and check in, maybe there aren't enough!

After spending three nights on the 12th floor of the Madison Concourse Hotel, I simply did not want to leave. I had a beautiful view of the state capitol from my room and from the Governor's Club.
