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

My family stayed at the Graduate in May 2016 to meet up with some college friends who we hadn't seen in awhile. After looking at a few other hotels in the so-so Madison hotel market, we easily settled on the Graduate due to the A+ location, boutique feel, and awesome rooftop bar. We were traveling with young kids and the... More

Just walking into my room made me feel good! The color scheme, the sense of humour, the pictures on the wall of chemical equations -- all good. I had the small room (double bed) which would be considered somewhat large by traditional European standards. It was plenty big for one person. Bed comfy. Towels large and fluffy. Big walk in...

Awful, just awful. I am sure the kind college staff really wants to help, actually feel sorry for them.

The bathroom was tiny, but the comfortable room spacious and clean. Absolutely outstanding however, was the knowledgeable and helpful staff. They even supply free bicycles to explore the area for those so inclined. My wife cycled around town while I worked and though usually hesitant to travel with me, wants to return to Madison and stay at the Graduate!
