Reviewed February 7, 2009

We stayed at the Doubletree for a weekend in January. We were there with friends for Wisconsin hockey games. The location is perfect - 2 short blocks to the Kohl Center and easy walking distance to State Street. Everything is well maintained and very clean. All the staff was friendly and polite. We will definitely stay at the Doubletree the next time we go to Madison.

Great location near UW campus. Nicely remodeled property (a former Howard Johnson's). Staff service excellent. Only minor annoyance was the Amana energy efficiency thermostat system which did not allow the fan to run continuously. Instead, the system rattled on and off, waking me up every time it turned back on to heat the room. Also, apparently a motion detector decides no one is in the room when you are in fact in the room (asleep). Also, like all Doubletrees and Hiltons, the one cup coffee maker is annoying. What happended to the 4 cup pot? Other than that absolutely no complaints. And with few nicer alternatives nearby, recommended despite the noisy heating system.

Whenever I travel for business, I am a little bit cautious when my host outlet chooses the hotel for me, I this case they've done themselves proud. On business, I need the convenience of time. Not that I demand much, but when I need something, I need to be able to get it quickly. At the Doubletree Madison, service is top notch and they anticipate the needs of the business traveller and are most helpful with any request. Full breakfast, lunc and dinner as well as off-hours menus are a standard here even in the slow season when the politicians are on recess. They also provide access to transportation, but everything I need to do was within walking distance. Rooms are nice and spacious with good lighting, a work station and noise was minimal even though this is right downtown. I hope to stay here again.

We stayed in the Doubletree for three nights as a base for visiting Madison and the surrounding area. Large, clean, quiet room, very convenient central location and attached car parking, and not expensive compared to the competition. The hotel suited our needs admirably. I would echo the remarks in other reviews about the inexperienced staff (doesn't Doubletree employ anyone under 25?) but all were pleasant and helpful. Highly recommended.

Stayed here when I was in Madison for a conference held at the Univ. of Wisconsin. The hotel was a few blocks walk to the meeting location (on campus) also near many good dining places.

It is a clean, well kept hotel. There is an attached parking lot/ramp. The hotel also has an attached dining/drinking establishment.

We stayed at the hotel one night prior to a Badger football game. The room was clean and check in was quick and easy. The location is close to State St so the car never left the ramp. Great build your own Bloody Mary at restaurant on gameday.

I stayed at the Doubletree for business, and I was working odd hours. The staff was surprisingly young across the board, but was extremely accommodating and helpful. Everyone from the front desk, to housekeeping, to the restaurant was pleasant and on their "A game." The Badgeralnd Bar and Grill offered good casual dining and the prices weren't outrageous. The location is within easy walking distance of the restaurants and shops on State Street. I'd definitely stay here again.
