It's hard to imagine why the Madison Hill Inn hasn't been reviewed before. Located at 724 North Pinkney Street in Madison, Wisconsin, in the historic Big Bug Hill neighborhood, at the North Pinkney/East Gilman intersection in downtown Madison, on the ridge along Lake Mendota, it is described as Madison's most celebrated boutique hotel. And it has been around since 1856. It was the first residence on Big Bug Hill, which was Victorian Madison's most elegant neighborhood. And it remains one of four historic mansions still standing. This four-story German Romanesque Revival building covers 9,000 square feet. It features an oval shaped mahogany staircase and etched Venetian glass windows. It was converted to a boutique hotel in 1983 and extensively renovated in 2008. There are 10 rooms, all of which highlight the property's historic charm. The hotel's classic parlor has been preserved. The majestic bar was created for entertaining. Now a AAA 4-Diamond hotel, it features a concierge, fitness center and a complimentary European-style continental breakfast. My wife and I booked the Classic Suite 7, advertised as the "finest hotel room Madison has to offer." It includes a king-size bed, 32-inch LED TV, complimentary wi-fi, iron and ironing board, full size work desk, floor-to-ceiling windows, a private balcony, marble gas fireplace, wrought iron from the balconies to the buttresses, arched windows and a secret entrance behind the bookcase to the grand bathroom with a shower, whirlpool rub, elegant stone and marble vanities and state-of-the-art fixtures. And it is conveniently located, a block from Lake Mendota and a 14-minute walk from Capitol Square, the Wisconsin State Capitol and the University of Wisconsin campus.

Fantastic service and beautiful room. We stayed after getting married in Madison and can’t wait to return. The Inn served as the beautiful backdrop to our “first look” photos, and they couldn’t be better. The staff was very helpful making our stay great!

By far an exceptional stay! The location is in close proximity to UW, the capital, the lake, parks, etc. with complimentary bikes, valet parking, luxurious accommodations with a fabulous staff. The complimentary breakfast, coffee, specialty coffee drinks, and juice was a step beyond a continental breakfast- more European. Rodney, one of the staff members, was exceptional and gracious to all guests. He was very helpful, knowledgeable about the area, and tended to any need that arose. Every evening they have coffee, tea, cookies and treats. The home is very inviting. We felt comfortable and welcome in any room of the house. It was a very quiet, elegant stay, which was exactly what we were looking for. The Wi-Fi is very good, the decor is lovely, Aveda bath products, great food, drinks and staff. You’ll never want to leave.

This place is so relaxing and lovely, I will be back. My room was gigantic and had a working gas fireplace, balcony ,and TWO (!!) showerheads in the large bathroom. Did I mention that the bathroom had a heated floor? The staff is extremely accomodating, attentive without being intrusive; breakfast is delicious and low-key . The common area downstairs had great snacks and a bar with a wonderful selection. The chocolate chip cookies at night were a nice surprise (and really good). I was there visiting my college kid at UW, and as a mom traveling alone I felt very safe in this small gem of a B&B. I also felt perfectly comfortable sitting alone getting some work done and enjoying a class of wine. It was a wonderful stay.

The hotel is beautiful. The ceiling moldings, the windows - spectacular. You can enjoy a busy day in Madison - its fantastic restaurants, biking along the lakes, soaking in art or culture - and then return to this quiet comfortable beautiful structure. The staff greet you warmly, remember you, and engage with you the perfect amount. (Not the overly chatty B&B owner, not the anonymous chain hotel desk clerk either). The carpets are way more soft than you expect, the robes are luxurious, and the front desk is a rich wood bar. Perfect. Freshly baked cookies, espresso on demand...Just two nights and we remember the kindness of: Steph, John, Terrence, Christos, and Rodney. Thank you!
