We (family w/kids) were staying in the Madison as part of our sightseeing trip to NYC. Hotel is a bit off the beaten path (meaning Interstates), but not too far. As far as sightseeing goes, it is 25 minutes car ride to Newark Penn Station, where you can park your car for $10 ($7 on weekend) and ride a PATH train to WTC or 33 Avenue for 1.75 one-way trip. There's a train station next door, but it is not economical for families at return trip pushing $25 per person. So, it isn't "next door to Times Square" by any mean, but for the rate I've got I'm not complaining. My GPS unit had no problems finding the place but, for some reason, placed it on the other side of the road (hotel is very visible from the Madison Avenue, so it was not a problem).
The Madison Hotel is, as far as I understand, more an event and banquet place (there were 2 weddings and a family reunion going on there on the weekend we were there) than a place for a casual traveller. Therefore it's decor is a bit more luxurious than an average 3* place. Other than the bling factor, you have a decent-sized room (with double beds, not queens), nice washroom, plenty of free parking and half-decent hotel breakfast in the morning (cereal, yoghurt, pastries, bagels with cream cheese or jam, juice/tea/coffee, but no hot items like eggs or sausages). There's no fridge in the room. Rooms could use a bit of renovation, but it will probably increase prices significantly. Cleanliness is adequate, service is good and friendly.
I would definitely recommend the Madison Hotel to a buddy planning to visit the area. Solid place for a decent prise.
