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

The hotel was great except that the room strongly smelled of cigarette smoke.

Close to downtown, easy walking to State Street and good restaurants.

Had birthday treats in the room for my daughter. What a special touch! Every single staff person went above and beyond and the location was walking distance from everything we wanted to see and do. Won't stay anywhere else!

Staff was friendly and outgoing. The cookies were top notch. No major problems with the room. The shuttle was tied up due to the fact that 2 wedding parties were at the hotel it was occupied when we needed it!

Wonderful location, great parking, wonderful restaurant,

I used the office service and had help from staff. All was great. The food was great and the drinks at the bar were generous.

Walkable distance to downtown Madison/Capitol, Kohl Center, and Camp Randall.

Great location. Close to everything The only negative I can think of is that it was an open shower and it was hard to shower without getting the floor wet.

Only thing missing is coffee in the lobby and a free breakfast

Tom Ziarnik is a terrible manager and runs a sloppy and irresponsible hotel. I mistakenly was charged $500 for damaging the room. When contacted, they admitted it was a mistake, but did nothing to correct it. Tom Ziarnik refused to take or return my call. I needed to contact the Visa fraud bureau. Over two weeks later and still no refund. Ziarnik knows nothing about customer service, or rectifying his own mistake. Update: Ziarnik threatened me with defamation of character unless I remove my post. Need I say more?

This hotel is right near the action, just down the street from The Nitty Gritty and The Vintage. Everything was comfortable and lovely after a long day walking around town. I will definitely make this my go to hotel whenever I'm in Madison.

We went for a quick weekend, very relaxing close to lake and downtown, they had a free shuttle too. Good place

Hotel shuttle was very helpful and convenient. The staff originally said that breakfast would be included but it ended up not being included.

This was a wonderful place to stay for our weekend visit to see my UW Freshman perform in a choir concert. It was conveniently located near her dorm and the location of the concert, as well as lots of nice restaurants. The staff were wonderful, and the room was very nice. Also, can't beat the free parking in their ramp. Great place to stay in Madison! :-)
