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.

We booked this hotel as it appeared to have a great location for exploring downtown Madison. It was a perfect spot to check out the Capitol, UW, and State Street. Unfortunately, the hotel itself leaves a lot to be desired. I'm guessing this chain is designed to cram as many people into the hotel on football weekends as possible. The... More

Absolutely adorable decor from lobby to the rooms. Staff was friendly and super helpful. Located right off of campus near Greek houses. Rooftop bar/restaurant was phenomenal. Easy walking distance to shopping and dining on State Street and a comfortable walk to Capitol Square, Lake Mendota and a number of museums. Beds very comfortable. Bath room was clean and perfect.

This is a beautiful hotel. Customer service is great, location can't be beat. BUT it is 11:30 pm and it is impossible to fall asleep with the noise from the 7th floor bar/restaurant. I was told it closed at 10 but the dragging of chairs across the floor continues and the dishwasher is very audible. This hotel needs to do... More

Stayed here for a conference. This hotel is very convenient for visiting The University of Wisconsin and is practically on campus. This hotel has a preppy, frat look that is cute and a throwback to the 1950s. I loved staying here. There is a fabulous rooftop bar with great views. Don't miss it. Rooms are what you would expect, only... More

I'm a consultant who travels weeks to Madison and stay at the Graduate every week. The staff is exceptions, from the front desk main man Ricardo to the wonderful staff that work at Portage Pi and the Madison Blind, my two favorite eating spots during the week. Everyone is courteous and caring and makes it home away from home.

Well appointed rooms. Very good staff (most are students from the university). Great location. Walking distance from downtown restaurants, hot spots and the university itself. Recommended without hesitation. Small cafe in the lobby w/ food and drink service. Great rooftop bar and food for those "late night snacks" and drinks.

We were in town for four nights for our son's wedding. All who stayed there enjoyed their rooms and the service, except for one guest who reported some partying out on the street into the late one night. The hotel is very well located -- just up the street from the Union and campus bookstore.

Was in Madison for training at Epic. Really enjoyed the location, but just be aware that it is smack in the middle of the student area of town. Nothing wrong with this, but if you are looking for finer dining, etc., it's a relatively short walk. The shuttle to Epic leaves promptly at 7:30. Don't be late. The staff were... More
