We stayed one night at the Clarion after touring the UW/Madison campus and capitol building. Very luxurious accommodations, quiet, clean, very friendly and helpful staff. And 5 stars for the complementary breakfast - pretty much everything a good breakfast should include and still hot and fresh as we hit it close to the end time. Will stay here again.

It must be off season in Madison because we got a very large suite for a very good value. I have tried to get in there before because of the closeness to UW but, could not hit the price point. What a nice surprise. The service was great. I wish I had, had one more day to stay there! It... More

I stayed at this property with family members during Thanksgiving 2015. Our 90 year old mother was in the University Hospital in Madison; I had flown in from Houston, Texas, my brother had recently flown in from Alaska, and my sister, her husband, and my nephew drove from Soldiers Grove, Wisconsin. When I explained to the desk clerk, Cathy, that... More

This would not have been my first pick, but when I was suddenly in town early with nowhere to stay, and this was the best deal, I was happy to get it at the end of the day. I had a huge room, 3 miles from downtown (a lovely walk along this beautiful path or a $6 Uber). The staff... More

We stayed here for 5 nights and had an enjoyable stay. Great town with tons of things to do here! Pool and hot tub was great after a long day of work! Breakfast was different every day. Rooms are huge!!! Very quiet( loved not hearing noises from the next room or the street. Would definitely stay here again!

I stayed at the Clarion Suites for two nights while on business in Madison. It is not right in the center of the city by any means (but I knew that when booking it), but it's an easy drive into town. The hotel was very clean and the staff was very nice. The breakfast in the mornings was quite plentiful... More

From the moment we walked in the door our experience at the Alliant Energy Center Clarion Suites was positive. The front desk staff was super friendly. There is a nightly Social Hour (5-6:30) with free tap beer, wine, and little snackies. Our room was oversized, clean, and very comfortable. Breakfast was the bomb (BACON!!) and staff ensured food stayed replenished.... More

Pros: Clean, friendly, dog friendly, free breakfast, pool, in room refrigerator Cons: Rooms are a little "tired" looking, beds are so-so, hot water ran out in the shower, extra charge for the roll-away. Our wifi did not work all weekend (we stayed 2 nights) which was disappointing. I did call the front desk for help and they referred me to... More

The rooms were clean and comfortable for our 3 night stay. The breakfast is your standard free breakfast but that was fine with us! The staff is great and it's pretty much a good hotel to come back to at the end of a long day. The pool is relatively small and I don't think you'd want to spend the... More

This was by far the worst stay at a hotel that I can recall. We booked there because we were told we would receive a discount if we mentioned the conference I was attending. First, I didn't receive a discount as promised. Secondly, when we arrived we had trouble getting our room because we use debit (money that exists) rather... More
