We stayed at Union South twice in the last two months. First time was in a suite. It's a beautiful hotel, but not well cleaned. The housekeeping crew straightens and fluffs, but it does not appear the room is well dusted or detail cleaned. Shaking the pillow dust would fly. We stayed 2 nights and they did not clean the...

Stayed at the WUH while giving a seminar at the university. It is a remodeled version of the old union that had been here when I lived in Madison. The rooms are nice (though I was not fond of the shower which had little water pressure, required you to stand in it to turn on the water, hence getting blasted...

I stayed here on two separate occasions recently. The 1st time was Ok, not great. University students work the front desk. I do not mean to sound harsh but they have no business sense that one expects on some level when checking into a hotel. They told me the rock climbing and bowling alley on the ground level was closed;...

I really don't know how this hotel could receive anything but great reviews. The people who work here are so happy to help us each time we visit and we love the rooms. It's the perfect location since our freshman is only a couple blocks away. I highly recommend this hotel to anyone near or traveling from afar. Amy Lau...

I stayed here on a business trip. The hotel is perfectly located for University business and UW sporting activities. The hotel is actually part of the student union building. There is convenient underground parking, on the premises.

I have stayed at this hotel 2 times, most recently on a visit to drop my daughter off at University of Wisconsin. Great value, clean and comfortable rooms, free parking, great location. Perfect for when your travels take you to Madison and especially with college related activities.

This hotel is a great place to stay when visiting the University of Wisconsin-Madison. It's connected to one of the student unions, and close to dining options that are right in the union. It has a good view of Camp Randall stadium as well. The hotel was well maintained and very comfortable!

If you are attending an event on Campus this is the place to stay. The room rate is excellent and the rooms are great, clean and badger themed. There is no hotel tax and the parking is included. The Sett downstairs has a bar and good food. And Babcock ice cream is there as well. It's not the Memorial Union...

The rooms were clean and spacious. Excellent Tommy Bahama personal care products. The beds were comfy. Great location and fun view. Only downside was the breakfast - pretty weak. Parking was easy and included as a Union member. Wish we were staying longer.

Great staff, always nice and willing to give you advice and help on everything. Rooms were nice and very comfortable. It's in the heart of Madison University campus. Only bad thing... no laundry on weekends.
