Very modern hotel. My room had a small kitchen which is nice for breakfast. The decor is modern and I liked the concrete floors. The bathroom was nice but the barn door did get a bit stuck (I was able to undo it). I’d skip the hotel restaurant, it was mediocre at best. The staff was super helpful and the location is great.

The hotel is very modern and stylish. We enjoyed our stay over Labor Day Weekend and plan to return at Thanksgiving. That said, some room for improvement: the room was dimmer than expected, and we never were able to get the lamp over the sofa to work. We noted what appeared to be blood spots on the comforter and left a note for housekeeping to change it out. They did not, so we had to take it down to the front desk. The front desk staff was very apologetic and helpful. The hotel is located at a busy intersection, and the street noise for a second-floor room facing toward Camp Randall Stadium can be loud late at night. But, we have had similar experiences in other college towns, so not that big of a deal. The restaurant and bar staff were very friendly, though my son's breakfast order was completely wrong - they corrected it in a timely fashion, though. THe outside patio area is a great place for a late-afternoon drink. Best thing - Mickie's Dairy Bar is right next door!

Our room was very dark, the lighting is just dark and I didn't like that the bathroom isn't closed off at the top. The fan in our bathroom didn't work either. If you enjoy the cement above and below you would like this. But it seemed a little tired. The red curtains cast a reddish glow from the sunshine when closed, i.e., in the morning. Just not my style. Oh, I know some would like the low bed height too, but I really did not. So, I'm sure this is the style that some would really enjoy but we just didn't. Personal preference stuff. When I made the reservation there was free parking but there was a charge instituted that they notified me of just before our trip.

Hi MurJD, Thank you so much for leaving a review about your recent stay with us. We appreciate you choosing HotelRED. Even though is sounds like our property wasn't your style, we are glad you gave us a try. As far as the parking is concerned, we do apologize for the confusion. We recently just rolled out a new parking fee, so there are always pains with changes like this. We do hope you visit HotelRED again next time your travels bring you to Madison!

I love the color red. And this hotel is across the street from the Camp Randall Stadium so it’s fitting to use a lot of the color red in this hotel. First time I have ever been at a hotel with exposed concrete walls and walls, but seems to work design wise. I loved that they included a kitchenette in my room, but wonder why they would have a kitchenette but yet no cooking tools/pots and pans? Guess you need to ask for it if wanted to actually cook in the room. I also loved how right across the street is a bike/walking path that actually measures how many people are passing that point. Also that path leads directly to the state capital. Trader Joe’s is near by and other nice restaurants are also close by. I took the bus to the famed State Street for $2 from a bus stop across the street and it was a fun way to see downtown without having to walk the distance.

This fun & funky pet-friendly hotels was great for our weekend stay. Spacious, clean room with a nice balcony overlooking Camp Randall Stadium. Friendly staff and pet snacks in the lobby. Unfortunately we never saw any pets! Very attentive bar tender! And the red, black & gray color scheme is fresh & contemporary. Would definitely stay here again.
