“Nicely maintained, nice staff”
Reviewed May 21, 2012

Very nice staff. Very attentive. Clean and well maintained. Smallish pool, but nice overall. Close to train to NYC. Surprisingly large rooms, nice places to eat inside. Not disappointed.

This well maintained hotel offers well furnished, large rooms and an unusually nice continental breakfast. There are also two excellent restaurants on the property. The hotel is next to the Convent train station with direct service to New York's Penn Station. There are conference facilities. This would be an excellent place for a company retreat or meeting if meeting planners are looking to "away from it all."

The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful.

My son & I live in Madison, NJ which is right next to Morristown & stayed at the Madison Hotel due to an emergency medical evacuation - the mold in our basement is making my son ill & we needed to stay somewhere while the PROS did their job cleaning up the basement.
We really needed to stay 3 consecutive nights yet MH only had 2 nights yet made notes for subsequent shifts to "look out" for cancellations so that we could continue the stay.
The folks were more than kind in every way & expressed concern for my son's illness as well. Next time we./I go it will be for a much more fun reason!

We booked a larger regional meeting for our company this month because of the great service and upscale decor of the hotel. The ballroom is excellent for any event and the staff is courteous and professional. Close to the NJT Convent Station, it is convenient for anyone coming in from New York City. And Rod's, the restaurant attached to the hotel, is first class all the way.

I have had the pleasure of staying at the Madison many times over the past year, and will continue to make this my first choice for a hotel while in NJ. There are very concrete obvious reasons... the cleanliness of rooms, the wonderful breakfast with fresh blueberries year round, the perfectly heated pool, and of course the access to Rod's Steak and Grille and the Red Dog which can be accessed right from the hotel. Mitch's piano playing only adds to the relaxed atmosphere in the bar.
However, there is an intangible aspect to the Madison that differentiates it from the rest. I had the unfortunate experience to fall ill during one of my stays. Alone, and out of state, this could have been a true emergency. However, the great staff went out of their way to assist me in obtaining medication. They called to check on me several times offering any assistance. That is the something you don't have elsewhere.... they care about their guests, well beyond our comfort and making sure we have towels.
I will never forget their kindness during my healthy and not so healthy moments.

Room Tip: I have stayed here and really couldn't select one room over the other. I have had wonderful expe...

I trust and hope you have recovered from your illness. That being said, I could not be any happier with your review. Thank you!!! A hotel is just a building unless you fill it with truly caring, service oriented employees who consider the work they do more then just a job. I have been blessed with a truly extraordinary staff that has responded well to my established expectations and standards and in the process they have really created a special place to stay. You have stayed with us multiple times so by now you know it is genuine, thanks for recognizing it and please continue to stay with us whenever you visit NYC or northern NJ.

This was our second stay at this hotel. We selected it because of the connecting restaurant & lounge. The rooms are clean & comfortable. Our room was near the pool & had a slight odor of smoke & chlorine, next time I would ask for a room in a different location. We had dinner at Rod's & drinks later in the lounge. They have entertainment every weekend in the lounge. They've added a second more casual restaurant & lounge which we will try next time. They had several events going on while we were there but it didn't interfere with our stay at all. After the events ended the lounge got pretty busy which lead to a lot of laughs. The hotel offers a great free continental breakfast in their very comfortable lobby. I even noticed several iPads in the lobby available for use. I would definitely recommend this hotel.

I was happy to hear you would recommend our hotel and glad you found the rooms clean and comfortable and thought the complimentary cold buffet breakfast was great. I hope you will continue to stay with us whenever you visit northern NJ or NYC and have a chance to try the Red Dog Tavern and use the Kindle Fire's available in the lobby for all to use.
