Recent guest reviews

The room was cold and could not be fixed so they offered us an extra blanket and $15 in free parking.

Nice touch to give a warm cookie upon arrival

Convinient to campus

The front desk staff was friendly and greeted us enthusiastically every time we walked in. The cleaners, cafe staff and maintenance workers were also all friendly and pleasant when we passed by. The fitness center was clean, comfortable and well-stocked. Our room was very nicely designed, with an inviting sofa for sitting in addition to a huge bed. The shower was lovely. My request for extra towels was accommodated immediately even though I said there was no hurry. The location is terrific as well, less than a 10-minute walk from East Campus Mall, the Terrace, and other UW campus highlights. We liked everything about this hotel and will stay here again on future visits.

comfortable bed nice parking lot very nice lobby/dining area

Good customer service

You could throw in a free continental breakfast.

My favorite place to stay when visiting my daughter on the UW Madison campus. Oh, the cookies are great too.

Hotel clean and with updated decor. Room had fridge, MW, and coffee maker. Gym was very nice and clean. Staff friendly and responsive. Would stay again.

Nice views of downtown. Great location with many things in walking distance. Would love to stay again!

Very clean and quiet rooms. Extremely friendly staff. Their shuttle service was a nice bonus.

All the best features without being a huge hotel. Great swimming pool, bar and lounge with tasty fresh food, pleasant room with quality furnishings and desk, plenty of outlets, perfect shower.

All good except pool and hot tub were closed. Wish I had known that in advance.

Close to airport, shuttle service to airport, friendly staff, clean room
