Reviewed yesterday NEW

This updated hotel is perfectly situated near State Street in downtown Madison, Wisconsin. The value here is unbelievable. You cannot beat the price of a room here for the style, ambiance, comfort and other amenities. The hotel has a very nice indoor pool and hot tub Jacuzzi. The room was clean, quiet and spacious. After a night on the town...

My son and I were visiting the University of Wisconsin. Never having been to Wisconsin before, we chose this Hampton Inn solely because its location...close proximity to the University of Wisconsin (for a college visit) and quick walk to the restaurants and shops near the capitol. I stay in Hampton Inns frequently when traveling with my son, mainly because of...

Yay! Thank you, Jax, for sharing this :) We're big fans of cheese curds here at the Hampton! Mostly, we love to share what we love about Madison. With new restaurants and pubs and shops opening all the time and it's fun to share insights into all the local flavor. We very much hope you'll consider Madison as the best-for-you...

The hotel is either new or newly remodeled. The lobby is inviting and warm. A good place to hang out or do work. The room was comfortable. The breakfast buffet was good. Parking was available and easy. We were able to go in and out as we wished. The hotel is very conveniently located to both the University and Capital...

We stayed the weekend with our young children. We were impressed with the pool area; clean and included fun pool toys to use. The breakfast was top notch, even having "unicorn waffles" with plenty of toppings/ condiments to select from. Our kids enjoyed the drawing corner in the lobby as well. A very clean, kid friendly hotel with attentive staff.

Yay! Thank you, Crystal for this happy review! I love that you mentioned the 'unicorn waffles' :) We had so much fun talking about how this could work and what people might think. As you were among the very first to see them, it's exciting to hear that you found the idea appealing. Our corner 'craft station', too! Thank you...

Visited in Minneapolis, Waterloo, Clinton, and Milwaukee, but Madison wins. Great location, too! Right down the street from the Capitol, and just across from State, plus 3 blocks from campus! Can't go wrong at this Hampton!

Win! *crowd roars* Thank you! What fun to be able to share this with our team! Is it possible our 'Unicorn Waffles' (now with unicorn sprinkles!) made the difference? Regardless, we're thrilled that you enjoyed it. Thank you, too, for trusting us, and our fellow Hamptons, for taking great care of your family this trip. Know that we look forward...

The Hampton was a great stay in downtown Madison. The hotel was clean, quiet, and the front desk staff were super helpful. The free breakfast had several options. I had the fresh fruit which was actually fresh and very good.

The staff here were extremely welcoming and helpful throughout our stay, even though it was a very busy graduation weekend. They took time to answer questions, they smiled, and genuinely seemed like they cared. This makes all the difference. They also arranged for our cab back to the airport, and it arrived right on time, as promised. I would definitely...
