Property features
With so much to do so nearby, it would make sense to start with a hearty breakfast and an invigorating workout at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Madison. Stop into the Prairie Café where organic ingredients are the standard fare. For the workout, hit the fitness center, do a few laps in the heated, indoor pool or ask the staff at the Crowne Plaza Hotel Madison front desk about nearby jogging routes. When it is time to see the sights, don't miss the Arboretum, a 1,260-acre wonder of natural beauty. The state capitol building is another must-see. Free tours are offered daily. The Dane County Farmer's Market is held all summer on Capitol Square and is a great way to spend a Saturday morning. Families love the nearly 100-year-old Henry Vilas Zoo.

Pretty good for the price

The room was a good size, but overall quality wasn't quite what I'm used to at the other brand I usually stay at. It was slightly outdated and some of the furniture seemed to have a bit of damage, but it's really nothing that would stop me from staying there again. It was about 5 minutes from my client and 15 minutes from the airport, with lots of restaurants and shopping nearby.

Nothing Special

We were not impressed with our hotel stay. We were visiting colleges and wanted a centrally located hotel. Location was fine but the room was very small and seemed older and in need of updates. Very basic. The complimentary shampoo, conditioner & lotion had been used and the caps were even full of old dried up residue. I would not stay at this hotel again. Not a horrible experience... just not the quality worth spending my money on.

Very Comfortable

Quite surprised at how nice this hotel really is. I haven't stayed at a Crowne Plaza for some years because they seem to care about their hotels. Only stayed here because friends were already booked. Will defininately stay here again.

The next morning

I had paid extra for the breakfast buffet. The buffet was delicious but they made it known to leave gratuity. There were two people including me and I was without a drink several times. When I left I saw my waitress hanging with the front desk staff. There is no complimentary breakfast, so I paid. No place for me to get water myself. SECOND I went up to my room to nap with my Do not Disturb sign up. It was 10am and check out in noon. Housekeeping ignored the sign and knocked and came in. I live in the same town and was testing it for a big group. They wont be going there.

Faulty A/C and No Help with Luggage

First room had faulty air conditioner...with temps outside around 100 degrees! Maintenance man was wonderful in getting us another room but, hotel staff made no offer to assist moving luggage to room on other side of hotel. Also, staff made little or no effort to accommodate us for our troubles.

The worst night's sleep ever!!

I was in Madison for a 1 night stay while attending a conference at the University. I stayed at the Crowne Plaza as the website had wonderful pictures and it was close to alot of resturants, shops,etc. The room I had was one of the worst, if not the worst rooms. The carpet was filthy and there was a huge circle cutout in the middle of the room that they replaced with carpet that was not the same color and didn't secure very well. There was a horrible, loud, and constant squeal of a noise outside the room. After 3 hours of this noise and 3 calls to the front desk along with a trip to the front desk, they decided that there was nothing they could do about the noise. [...]. Firs they said the noise was the dryers and that "in a few hours" they would shut them off (it was 9pm). Then at 11pm they said that they were still working on shutting the dryers off. Then at midnight the maintenance staff was in the ceiling of the hallway as the noise was not the dryers. After an hour of him making a ton of noise and keeping the whole hallway awake did they decide that they did not know where the noise was from. [...]. Their solution to the problem, COMPLIMENTARY ear plugs. I could hear the noise over the volume of my tv. At 1am I put the earplugs in, turned the tv volume up a bit (as everyone else was doing as well) and tried to sleep. Needless to say, 5am I was wide awake. I know that I am not the only one to complain as the rooms around me also did. It was TERRIBLE!! The managers did not seem to care about customer service. I will not be returning there and will not give it one positive review. I normally stay at the Double Tree by the UW and will be returning there in the future!!
