We stayed at this property when we toured the university. It is centrally located near the campus. Rooms are well appointed but could be cleaner. Sheets had some visible dirt on them. Amenities in bathroom were nice. If you are looking for the college experience, this property provides it as the students study in the lobby.

This hotel has a college feel, complete with real students on their laptops in the lobby and cute decor. Rather than do not disturb sign to put on door, there is triangular pendant that says, "Studying."

I stumbled across this hotel due to the fact the town was full and most hotels did not have any capacity. The checking staff were friendly and helpful. The room was not frills but had all necessary mod cons and was very comfortable. The location was great and I would consider staying there again in future.

Great location very close to Capital Square and State Street and the Univ of Wisconsin campus. The rooms are charming with very unique design elements if you are familiar with UW football traditions (think jump around).

Excellent location. A very short jaunt to State Street; an easy walk up to the Capitol area. The room was very clean and nice. It was very quiet. You could not hear any of the street noise. My only complaint was that the shower water was lukewarm at best. Overall, a good place to stay. I'll definitely be back.

I was at the Graduate Madison for Labor Day 2016 and really enjoyed my stay. It is a remodeled boutique type hotel on Langdon St, 1 block from State Street. The staff was very friendly and accommodating, the 7th floor bar/lounge was great, and the rooms were comfortable. I'd definitely stay there again.

Update: Soon after I posted the original review, we discovered the hotel double charged our credit card. Moreover, we were billed at two different nightly rates. The website we booked through was able to get this resolved quickly, but we are unclear why the hotel would try to bill us twice for the same room and stay. As noted in... More

Great hotel, in a great location. Rooms are very tight, especially the doubles. Other than that the decor and theme are great. We will definitely be back as it is pretty close to our daughter's dorm and most of the action off campus.

the rooms were great, plenty of room to work at the desk and a great view. The parking was tight in the underground garage and the roof restaurant and bar lacked several essentials. The staff were more than friendly and always helpful.
