DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Madison
Ranked #3 of 64 Hotels in Madison
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed February 11, 2013

I've been to Madison a few times and have chosen to stay on the outskirts of town, but the positive reviews and my Gold HHonors status convinced me to give the Doubletree a try, and I'm glad that I did. First, it's in a very good location - walkable to many good restaurants and shops. The room was pleasant, with an updated bathroom. The fitness center, while under construction, had very good equipment. The pool and hot tub were very pleasant. Breakfast in the restaurant was an added bonus - most buffets put out the bare minimum, but items like Greek yogurt and Activia smoothies, freshly cut pineapple and melons, and made-to-order omelettes exceeded my expectations. And finally, I arrived during a blinding snow storm, and having covered parking was huge - it literally saved me 20 minutes the next morning from having to dig out the car from snow. Would definitely stay again!

From the check-in to check-out the entire staff was welcoming and overly accommodating. Our keys did not work at one point during the stay, but Callie and Katie gave us extra cookies which made the trip downstairs totally worth it! We were given a great recommendation for where to go to dinner which was made even better when the girls told us there was a free shuttle to take us there! Mohamed, the driver, was friendly too. If our son decides to go to school in Madison, we will definitely be staying at this hotel whenever we come visit! Thank you all for the welcome and keep it up. Our whole family appreciates it!

Room Tip: We enjoyed the capitol view from our room!

Thank you very much for the great review! We are thrilled that you and your family enjoyed a wonderful trip to Madison, including the dinner recommendation from our team. We are sorry to hear that your room keys did not work as we know how inconvenient that can be; however, we are pleased that the bag of our delicious cookies made up for it – we can't get enough of our chocolate chip and walnut cookies as well. Thank you for choosing the DoubleTree by Hilton Madison, and we hope your son chooses the UW-Madison as we look forward to hosting your family in the future. GO BADGERS!

For the past four years I have come to Madison to attend week-long professional development event. Every year, I am sure to book my room early because I want to stay at the DoubleTree. Friendly staff, good restaurant (Spotted Cow! Cheese Curds!), clean, comfy rooms. I travel a lot for work - often to five star luxury resorts - but I have a real soft spot for this hotel. It is the right combination of everything.

Thanks to everyone in Madison for always making me feel welcome!

Now, I gotta run so I can book my 2013 stay!

From check-in to check-out, interactions with every staff member were warm, courteous, and professional. I was graciously welcomed at the front desk, had a welcome letter upon entering my room, chocolates delivered at turn down, and a "Thank You for Staying" email the next morning. The room was well kept and very clean. My king bed was comfortableand provided a good night's sleep. Internet connectivity was consistently good. Breakfast spread offered plenty of options and was well presented. It's no surprise that this Doubletree consistently is voted one of the best in the country. I hope to find my way back for another stay in the near future.

Room Tip: Although I didn't ask ...... some rooms have a view of the capitol ...... would have been nice...

Stayed here for three days while in Madison on business. I found the hotel to be very comfortable and the staff to be very accommodating. Used the fitness club and the restaurant for breakfast and both were of very high quality. Centrally located close to the University as well as the downtown area. Would definitely stay again.

I stayed overnight for a conference. The shuttle picked me up when I arrived and dropped a group of us off at our conference location the next morning. The warm chocolate chip cookie at check in was delightful. Clean, modern, great little sports restaurant/bar where I got a large salad and a cup of coffee. Friendly, efficient staff. I'd definitely stay here again.
