My room was large, comfortable, nicely decorated, clean and full of amenities you don't normally find in most hotel rooms: small chiller for keeping things cold, two seat couch, table, desk with additional work table on wheels, wide screen TV, extra phone in bathroom.

Not your typical layout either. Very quiet - didn't hear any noises even though place was fully booked. The bed was extremely comfortable and loaded with pillows from firm to soft. Nice sheets as well (they actually have a card showing you how to order everything bed related for your own home!).

Nice lobby with bar and 24 hr snack/convenience store and they offer free shuttle service within a 5 mile radius. Saved me from Madison parking and driving hassles, esp after a night out.

The staff was very friendly and accomodating. The excercise room and pool looked nice but I didn't have time to try them.

One slight downside to the room - the in-room a/c-heat unit has a sensor that turns it off when you are not in the room. A green idea but a little frustrating if you want the room to stay the same temp.

The hotel has easy access to the freeway and area restaurants, malls and golfing. I'll definitely stay there again.

This hotel is one of our favorite places to stay in Madison. It's relatively new, and in a good location. Yes, it's near the interstate, but not excessively loud. As a matter of fact, we always ask for a room facing the interstate, because it provides a beautiful city view, and we could see the lights of the city, and the Capitol dome lit up from our room. The beds are comfortable, we had a mini-fridge, and new? plasma screen televisions with the usual wealth of cable stations including HBO. The hotel is near movie theaters, many restaurants and the East Towne shopping mall. The staff has always been very efficient and we've found the hotel to be clean and comfortable. We always stay on the East side of Madison, and this hotel is generally one of our first choices.

Stay started out fine: clean room, location of sink outside bathroom for extra convenience, quiet hotel on that particular Saturday night. But, though we were asked if we would like a wake up call, and said no, our phone rang at 5 a.m. with this automated message: "Good Morning! We would like to let you know about our breakfast buffet! Please join us!"

We cannot imagine what kind of hotel would call guests' rooms and awaken them to remind them about their services. (The breakfast buffet is not included, and guests are billed for it separately.) We would not return to a hotel with a policy like this.

We visit Madison quite often, but usually stay on the west side of town.
We are sticklers for cleanliness and were very pleased with the clean, comfortable rooms and the condition of the property in general. From the nice pool area and exercise room, to the comfortable bar and sitting areas we will certainly stay there again.
It was nice to have so many coffee shops and restaurants close by as well.
I noticed they still offer glass cups in the room in the little bags. We never use those, probably from watching some 20/20 or 60 minutes program about how they are sometimes cleaned(or not)!
Other than that minor detail it was just fine.

In case you're wondering, this hotel is owned by a company more interested in making tubs of money than in providing decent lodging at a reasonable price. Initially, I thought I had discovered a diamond but in reality, the property is a glass bauble in the rough. I caught a formidable fungus from a towel and then management kept changing the rate quoted originally. With the manager standing in the lobby like a mortician, it's no wonder there is a huge turnover in the staff. Marriott needs to rethink this one.

This is a nice mid-range hotel, quickly found off the highway. Ample parking, gracious staff and easy check-in. Pros: bed is comfortable, room is mostly clean (one gross cup with left over milk traces excluded) and spacious, roll away immediately available for an extra 10 dollars, a little market with fresh fruit and sundries in the lobby, pizzeria uno almost immediately outside the hotel and a pool. Cons: expensive b.fast which would typically be complimentary in similar hotels, the cup (see above) symbolizing amateurish housekeeping and the work out room which is very small and has limited equipment.
Would consider when back in Madison but would probably try somewhere else.

Front desk was very friendly and helpful, and the room was clean and comfortable. Small TV, partially blocked by the closet. Biggest issue was highway noise - sounds like I camped next the highway all night. Hotel is near shopping, but there's no way to walk there. Nothing to eat immediately in the vicinity except Uno's Pizza. Overall, it's a decent place, but if I'm in this area again I'll try something different.
