“Great Hotel, Great Location”
Reviewed October 25, 2013

You can't beat the location. Minutes from State Street, and the campus. The hotel was very nice and the beds were the best I have experienced in awhile. The Internet was rather slow and the cost of this hotel is not cheap. The shower has a half wall and this was annoying as the water sprayed everywhere. It was a nice shower other than that.

I stayed here while on a business trip and I thought the service I received was excellent. The hotel was booked solid and so I was set up to share rooms with a co-worker and while I was checking in, the girl helping me checked to see if any rooms had opened up and one had so she moved me to that room. I didn't ask her to do that, she just figured that I would prefer to be in my own room and so she decided to check room availability. I thought that was great service without having to be asked. The room was comfortable and I would gladly stay here again. I ate breakfast one morning and I thought they had a great selection and the food was pretty good.

Hello, and Thank You for choosing the DoubleTree by Hilton Madison while visiting us on business. We are beyond thrilled that our team member could go above and beyond providing you the best possible customer service while on your stay. Our very own restaurant, the Badgerland Bar and Grill, provides such an excellent breakfast buffet---we happen to think it’s the best buffet in town! Thank You again for staying with us and we hope to see you again soon!

On the recommendation of my spouse, who has stayed at the Doubletree while in Madison on business, I booked a room for the past weekend to attend an event at the university with our daughter. The hotel is very clean, modern and well maintained. My room was very clean, comfortable and nicely furnished. All of the staff (front desk, housekeeping, restaurant) were very friendly, professional, and accommodating. The hotel is very well situated in Madison, within easy walking distance to the University of Wisconsin campus and the state capitol area, with many dining options. I will not hesitate to stay there in the future.

Room Tip: If possible, reserve one of the HiltonHonors rooms on the 6th or 7th floor.

This place was wonderful to stay at. There was no wait to check in, no problem checking out. The room was very clean and comfortable and the staff was wonderful! This place is right on the UW campus, so getting to my conference was quick and easy.

This hotel is central to the campus and a great place to stay for families visiting their kids at school. The staff is friendly, cookies upon arrival, great service in the restaurant. We have eaten here both for breakfast (nice buffet) and dinner. We watched the Notre Dame game one evening from the restaurant while having dinner and the staff was great in letting us just relax and not rush us.

Excellent choice. Reasonably close to the airport. Free airport shuttle. Easy, friendly check in and check out. Clean rooms with comfortable beds. Free Wifi. Nice bar and lounge (closes 11 PM). Room service was fine. Restaurant is nothing fancy but very functional. Good choice.

Stayed for UW Homecoming weekend. Had a double bed room that connected to a two-room suite so it was really a perfect setup with plenty of room and the suite living room area served as a great place for everyone to hang out. The only negative I would mention is that there isn't a closet in the suite bedroom area ... you have to walk out into the living room area to get your clothes that are hanging up. Definitely an inconvenience. It would also be nice if the suite bedroom area had its own bath but I regress. The beds are fantastic and the location is perfect. I must also mention the EXCELLENT breakfast buffet. I would stop here for the buffet prior to a Badger game even if I wasn't staying at the hotel. Great selection and they kept everything well-stocked. All around a great stay. We would definitely stay here again.
