5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 5, 2013

I say this even though we changed rooms. The staff was exceedingly pleasant, and had a room for us last Sunday about 11:00am. The rooms are very nice, clean, and one of the only hotels I know of with nice bright lights. Also, you can't beat the location, and once parked, can walk to most anything. We checked in and went to a show. We came back after dinner, and about 8:30pm, the two rooms next to us were so loud I thought their doors were open (they weren't). I asked the desk if we could move, and they said sure, but offered to take care of things so we could stay. We just moved to save any future issues. Once In our new room, it was quite, except for my snoring, as I slept thorough the night. There is free parking on the second level. A very nice stay, but again, whom ever trains the staff is doing an excellent job.

I had to visit Madison for a business meeting and am glad I stayed at this hotel. The staff was very friendly and the check-in was very smooth. The room was very clean and a great size. I really liked the nice stand up shower in the bathroom. Overall a very good hotel. Will stay here again.

I have always been very happy when staying with Hilton properties and this trip lived up to the same standards. Helpful staff and convenient location to restaurants The hotel is also within walking distance of the beautiful capital campus. As well, they have plenty of parking and easy access to the parking ramp. If your traveling to Madison, make the Double Tree your place to stay

This hotel is quite lovely. It's more expensive than staying away from the school but if in town for a Madison event it's totally worth it. It doesn't feel like you're in Madison. You're walking distance to all things UW - especially football games - and you can enjoy all that Madison has with it's downtown and lakes within a short drive or loner walk as well.
