This Inn was very cozy. We checked into room 8 which was larger than photos and descriptions had previously hinted. The shower was also roomy with 2 shower heads and Aveda products. Our room had a gas fireplace but not much heat came from it. We were okay with this since the thermostat worked perfectly. We wondered if the property was owned by Trek, and this was later confirmed by their wifi password and the large photo of Dick Burke in the lobby/bar.The mini breakfast was superb with delicious pastries, granola, yogurt and berries.

The hotel is well positioned to take advantage of campus life, the capitol scene (farmers market, great restaurants), as well as State Street shopping. We parked our car for the weekend and walked or biked everywhere (nice Trek bikes at your disposal). The building is beautiful and the hotel is well maintained. The room was clean, the bed was comfortable, and they had nice Aveda products in the bathroom. By Madison standards the place is a bit pricey, but really is unique and a nice experience. Oh, I almost forgot that the staff are top notch-- sincerely friendly and helpful, which we very much appreciated.

Loved our time at Mansion Hill Inn. The room was spacious with gas fireplace, comfortable couch, flat screen tv, and private porch. Behind the bookcase, was an enormous bathroom with tile shower, heated floors, and separate heat zone. The staff was top notch and attentive. The turn-down service, cookie before bed, and handwritten note on tomorrow's weather and events was so great. I thoroughly recommend Mansion Hill Inn.

The Mansion is more of a hotel in its service level. More of a B&B in its historic charm, elegance, size and comfort. The bar is a great place to have a drink before finding a place for dinner. Trek bikes are available for a ride. Very friendly staff. FYI...the Mansion was renovated a couple years ago. It is fully open now.

Great location, can walk to all the restaurants and activities downtown Madison has to offer. We loved that they had a fleet of bikes so you could just hop on one and go on the many miles of bike paths Madison has to offer.
Our only complaint was the amount they charged for a glass of wine. I do not mind paying for a glass (many B&Bs with free wine have mediocre wine) but to pay as much for a glass as the bottle costs seems outrageous.

Very quiet, well-appointed, perfectly located, immaculately maintained inn with comfortable beds, designer bathrooms and excellent climate control, as well as excellent and cheerful service. However, what the other reviewres don't mention is that the bedrooms have huge French windows and the neighboring houses are in very close proximity, as are a couple of streets. Make sure to close the curtains before you get undressed.

Otherwise, the only two drawbacks to this Inn are: (1) Apparenly Madison has "hard water," or at least this place does, so expect to spend a lot of extra time rinsing the soap off; (2) the breakfast, though fine, is not commensurate with the accommodations.

Our visit at the Mansion Hill Inn in Madison, WI was perfect from beginning to end. Pulled up in front and unloaded our luggage and the free valet service parked our car for us. The building is beautiful - I read that it had been restored and everything did look wonderful & new. Service was excellent throughout the stay - some of the pluses: we were brought warm chocolate chip cookies both nights, staff were always friendly and offered to help us find places to eat and gave us a map, 24 hour bar - free soda and reasonably priced beer/wine (no mixed drinks). I also heard that they provide bikes to roam the city, but we weren't brave enough to try that.

It was a great location to explore Madison from. We walked to the square Sat morning and visited the Farmer's Market, walked down State Street, and explored a bunch of bars and restaurants during our stay. Didn't need the car again until we left.

Our room (#1) was on the ground floor (actually down a flight since it's built into a hill). It had an outdoor patio, huge bathroom with walk-in shower, a sitting room w/ a pullout sofa, 2 flatscreen tvs, a fireplace, and a large bedroom w/ comfortable bed.

We walked up the spiral stairs to see the view from the top (can see the Capitol from one side), and were able to peek into a couple of the other rooms that weren't occupied yet. Most seemed smaller than ours, except for the top floor rooms.

There was complimentary food every morning - pastries, nuts, fruit, granola, yogurt, etc. Just can't say enough about how great this place was!
