4.5 stars and everything that come with it. Nice spot.

Nice place well worth the money very close to everything

The view was beautiful. We arrived a few minutes before check-in and the room wasn't ready. The front desk said they would call when the room was ready. We had a glass of wine while we waited. 30 minutes after check in time, we hadn't received a call so we went to the desk. They said they were just about to call. In the room there was a dirty washcloth on the floor and their was a glob of hair in the shower drain and hair on the floor in the toilet area. The staff was apologetic and explained that our room was a "rush job". They would take care of it. We came back to the room after dinner. There was a bottle of wine and a form letter thanking us for our understanding. We then noticed that both bed side tables were really dusty. Apparently this is not something that is not cleaned routinely by the staff. We called up the manager and she agreed that it wasn't acceptable. She said she said she would call up the housekeeping staff to make it right. We decided to leave.

Nice people and got early check in even though they were really busy. Disappointed that both restaurants were closed at the same time.

Parking is remote which was tough on a cold day. Nobody available to take bags to the room. No robes in the room. No snack bar in the room. Mattresses are old and uncomfortable. Room service food was great.

Very nice hotel. We had reserved a lakeview king room that, online, showed pictures of the bathroom with a tub. It turns out they don't all have tubs, so you need to put in your notes that you want a tub. They did move our room for us with no issue.

Beautiful hotel, wonderful staff, clean and spacious rooms. Gorgeous views of the water. Really enjoyed our night away for my husband’s birthday. Dinner was good and breakfast as well. A tad pricey but overall decent food. The whole staff was super friendly and helpful. We would stay here again. The spa was beautiful and a nice touch to our day. Great fitness room as well. Wish parking was cheaper but that’s expected in downtown. Also not excited there is a resort fee, but as long as you use the amenities then it’s worth it.

Nice hotel with all the amenities. Enjoyed the spa and fitness facilities

Great five star hotel. Perfect location for Madison, on the lake, near campus. Staff very helpful and friendly. Good restaurant.

Room view was nice. Travel between buildings was cumbersome but not overly taxing.

Stayed here to move my son into Univ of Wisc. Its a great hotel near the capital building.

One of the nicest hotels that I have stayed in, the location and view are incredible, and the staff was very courteous and helpful. Couldn't have asked for more.
