“Great location and service”
Reviewed February 24, 2014

This hotel is very near the UW campus. When I inquired about parking on the day of my departure, they quickly offered a shuttle ride to our destination. The breakfast was tasty, and the staff was very helpful and attentive.

Good location. Below average room. Smoke detector hanging by a single wire, hairs in sink, lint on floor, tv was extremely difficult to figure out, not-so-nice front desk personnel, average/below average decor. For the price, I expected a lot more.

What could be better than good location, free parking, quiet, clean and comfortable? Staff! At this DoubleTree it is the best. Just stayed for nine days while my sister had surgery at UW Hospital. Every single person I encountered was so pleasant. Sister was released from hospital just as Madison was about to get a big snowstorm so I stayed an extra two nights with her. When I asked front desk to extend my stay, Ahmed asked if my sister was with me. I thought he just needed to know how many people would be in the room. Instead he showed up at our door with a beautiful fruit plate and a note for her. That was such a wonderful surprise at a difficult time. Two days later just before we were to leave, we ordered breakfast to be delivered to the room. It came at no charge. Another nice surprise. I've never been treated so well at a hotel (including a Ritz Carlton). Someone is doing a great job of hiring and training staff at this hotel. Kudos to whoever that is.

We recently stayed at the Madison Doubletree in Madison, Wisc for a College visit. The experience from the moment we checked in was nothing short of wonderful. The staff was very friendly and accommodating and the room was spotless. I would highly recommend this property.

This property used to be Howard Johnsons. It has been upgraded to Double Tree. At check in I was offered cookies, water, free parking , shuttle service and a discounted rate. Love.
The rooms are nice and clean. Bed comfortable. View out of window was parking. Quiet nights sleep. Bath is small and shower pressure not very good. Free shuttle to UW Hospital (we did not use) nice to know they offer.

DoubleTree is the center of Madison. The location of this place is perfect to access the university, the capital or state street. The accommodations were great and the staff was even better. Thank you.
