5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Centrally located with easy access to UW, the Capitol and downtown, this hotel excels at personalized service and excellent accommodations. Staff are friendly and eager to please. Rooms and bath were impeccably clean. Coffee service was replenished nightly. Overall, a great value with easy access to Madison's key locations.

He makes sure the guests are well taken care of, comfortable and are having a good time at the various hotel events. In addition to his gracious spirit that connects strangers together, the hotel has a hip outside... More

I had a lovely stay here! A new staff member had given away my room and since they had to look for a new room they upgraded me even though I was not complaining. The staff was friendly and I always enjoy the Holiday Inn breakfast. This relatively new hotel is in great shape!

The fact that the Hotel is convenient to all destinations on the UW Campus as well as outer destinations around Madison is 2nd to the fact that the facility remains pristine after being open for almost 2 years, has a Friendly...

The room I had was nice enough - clean and had a comfortable bed. Plenty of outlets, decent work space and nice enough feel. Nothing really spectacular, good or bad with the facility itself. Pool area was interesting as the pool is also the hot tub/whirlpool. Breakfast was adequate, but would have been better with some cook-to-order options. Great access... More
