“Expectations exceeded.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 17, 2013

I booked two nights at Hyatt Place as a downtown Madison stay-cation. We got a high floor corner room facing the Capitol, and the views were beautiful. The room (and bathroom) was very spacious, extremely clean, and quiet. Beds were comfy, parking was convenient. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. We also took advantage of the breakfast served on-site both mornings, which was fresh and of good variety. The price--especially in proximity to the Square--made this place a more than excellent value.

Room Tip: Corner room had tons of sunlight.

We stayed here for New Years Eve and loved it. It was clean and spacious. Also it was inexpensive. I thought we would have paid a lot more than we did because of New Years and the location. It is very close to the Capital Building. Would stay here again. Beds were comfy too.

The capitol is at the center of Madison. It occupies a square block. If you walk 2 blocks in any direction you will hit all of the Madison downtown hotels.They are all walking distance to the Capitol or the restaurants etc.

The Hyatt Place is something between a budget hotel and a upscale property. It is similar to what the newer Hilton Garden Inns are aiming for.

This one is nice. The staff are outstanding - more akin to the level of service you would find in an upscale property. The food is decent. You won't eat a fancy dinner here but it's a decent breakfast and quick lunch.

The rooms are OK - good space - I found the furnishings and finishes to be a bit basic. The closet is hard to work with because it is tucked in a corner and has 2 sliding doors.

Note - many of the rooms are shower only - no tub.

The doors do not reach the floor - so some hallways noise enters the room. It is not a big problem but I think I got lucky and the hall was pretty quiet. On a noisier night I would want more sound-proofing.

Overall it is a good call. It is cheaper than the Hilton and the concourse - but if all things were equal I would stay at the Hilton.

I am not sure what to make of this place. I hv been to quite a few hyatts but maybe Hyatt Place is a different category? Its definitely not the same as Hyatt Regency. I probably booked it thinking it was the same standard as Hyatt Regency so I cant fault them too much.

Its a simple hotel, if thats what you need and prefer no frills accomodations , it's perfect. Rooms are nice and clean , service mediocre. Again, I am not sure if it is just the fact it is a different category ... maybe thats what it is for that price point.

No mini bar beverages, no room service, just a kiosk downstairs , self serve. Dry cleaning was not brought up, we had to hunt it down... I found it quite interesting, was told I had to go and get it myself bcos there was only 1 staff at times . :) hahahaha

there is a free shuttle which is helpful.. but then again, if u tip the driver like I do, may just end up the same as cab fare into the city. Booked the shuttle for daily departures at a specific time but was told it was not on the folder.... my son had to go to ICE daily ... to be there for 9 only to find out it was not written in! It was one of the reasons I booked with them - the shuttle could take him to ICE.

Without sounding too spoilt, most days I had to walk across to buy lunch if I wanted to dine in. It would be nice if there is room service.

This modern hotel is about a block from the capital building with a convenient parking garage - although there is a $10 per day parking charge. The parking charge is cheap compared to on street parking which is limited. The rooms are large with lots of room and stylishly decorated. The free breakfast is quite good and includes hot items as well as standard cold cereals, fruit, and baked goods. The staff is very helpful and friendly.

The Hyatt Place is quickly becoming my new favorite hotel for when I visit Madison. It is a newer hotel, much newer than most of the other hotels in the area and the prices are always very reasonable. The location is just two blocks off the square, making it within walking distance of many restaurants, bars, museums and the other downtown entertainment venues.
Rooms are spacious and more than adequate for my needs: Flat screen TV, pull-out couch, mini-fridge, comfortable bed, and a desk. All of which are on the newer side of the spectrum. Service is mostly college-kids, so they can be a bit hit or miss, but I’ve personally never had any issues with them.
The pool is on the smaller side, but is clean and sufficient for the younger children, like my daughter, who tend to be the only ones using it. Breakfast bar is a bit lacking, in terms of both options and quality, but considering this isn’t a restaurant, I’m not going to complain. (If you want a decent breakfast, take a short walk across the square to the Old Fashioned.)
Only complaint would be that Hyatt Place doesn’t offer a true suite as an option. I tend to travel with a 4yr old and having a separate room is nice, but this is more my problem than theirs.
*Of note, not all of the photos listed above (particularly the ones updated by managagement) are accurate photos of this hotel. Some photos appear to be generic Hyatt photos and they do not accurately represent this particular hotel.

Room Tip: Higher floors are nicer, but there are only two elevators. If it's busy, you'll be waiting.

Nice roon, friendly check in, good breakfast. The charge for parking is annoying. Everything in downtown is within walking distance including the convention center. If you need to be in downtown Madison, this is a good choice.
