WORST, TERRIBLE EXPERIENCE: almost ruined our weekend
We had to check in later at 9:30 pm, because we were coming from upstate Wisconsin fr a rafting trip. We called to let hotel know and they told us we could check in with bartender in the hotel
pub.That should have been the first warning sign.
We arrive tired and hungry, checked in at the bar (?!?), took our bags up to a room, which WASN'T what we had reserved (we made reservation for a jacuzzi suite because we knew we would be sore after our rafting). We went back down to the pub and told the bartender/front deskman.He was very nice, apologetic and tried to be helpful. He called the manager who was at home, who didnt want to get on the phone to speak with me, nor come to hotel to correct the mess they had left. The bartender then tried to put us in a empty suite( which was probably the room we had reserved), but none of his keys worked (so NOW we have a bartender who is in charge, without a master key, without a manager/ owner who actually cares about this situation). I left my number with the bartender for the manager to call, which they never did and we had to find a hotel somewhere else before all the restaurants closed, too.
This experience was like no other I had ever had ( coming from someone who travels ALOT.
This should be a warning to any future travelers: There are so many other great places to stay in Madison with much more charm and character, for the same price. And they are managed by people who care... (or should I say)who actually know something about customer service.

Review of Hotel Ruby Marie
Nov 29, 2007
A touch of History
Hotel Ruby Marie opened it's doors in the late 1800's and is steeped in history. It is not quite a hotel and not quite a bed and breakfast, but a unique blend of the two. The room was large and decorated in victorian style, but the large hot tub
right in the bedroom did detract from the the feeling. The king-sized bed had a wonderful matress. The best I have ever found in a hotel. Breakfast is served down in the bakery on the ground level and the smell of fresh made pastries and breads is almost intoxicating. The hotel is located in a very historical section of Madison, combining railroad history and German Immigrants. Had a delicious meal right next door at a German Restaurant that is owned by the hotel.
