The Madison Concourse Hotel and Governor's Club

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Hotel staff was welcoming and helpful. Rooms were clean, updated and modern. Fitness room was great with lots of options for a good workout. Pool and hot tub were both well maintained. Pool area was very nice. Bar food was excellent. Only complaints: no microwave or tea in rooms. Could hear traffic all night through our window on 6th floor. Overall, great hotel and would stay here again.

Great hotel in prime location. Staff was fantastic. Rooms were spacious and quiet. Lobby is comfortable to hang out in, bar staff was super responsive and the front desk staff is top notch

Very clean hotel both times I have stayed. Excellent staff along with a very useful ride to the airport. Even wit a flight leaving at 650 am they still accommodated my needs which was very nice. I have loved my stay both times and would recommend to anyone staying in the Madison area. Short 2 minute walk to the capitol building and many amazing restaurants. Don’t think twice just stay at the concourse

W wanted to celebrate our anniversary somewhere special and this is the place. So luxurious and everything we wanted in one place. Complimentary food , beverages and comfy room to retire in.

It was okay. No one cleaned our room between days. There was hair on the bathroom floors when we arrived. Nothing too special for the amount we paid..

Stayed here during the Great Taste of the Midwest. Close enough to be involved in the festival but far away enough to be on our own time. The hotel was lovely. Room was comfy and clean. No complaints.

Good location, nice staff. Whirlpool is very good.

Wonderful stay! Enjoyed our stay. Close to great restaurants. Close to State Street.

Will definitely say there again if I need to spend time in Madison.

Very nice hotel, terrific restaurant, gave slightly lower room comfort rating because I find pillow top beds very uncomfortable.

Great location, recent renovations, great amenities, but the staff is what puts this hotel over the top. Check in staff noticed it was my birthday and gave me a free upgrade, such a nice touch. All the staff works so hard to make every guests stay so nice. The hotel is so clean it sparkles. The vallet is quick and just a really nice guy! Club lounge is always a treat with great staff. I would never stay anywhere else in Madison.

Nice hotel. No complaints. Fast check in. Ten dollar parking. My favorite Madison hotel.

We had a King Club Room. The room was clean and comfortable. The Club Lounge was a nice place to visit. We think the price is worth the stay. There are cheaper hotels, but this one has such a great location, views, and amenities. The staff on the 12th floor was wonderful.

Staff is wonderful. Everyone is so professional. I love staying here when in Madison. Clean, great location, well trained staff.

Great place to stay for taste of Madison ,lots of activity near hotel. Hotel has a great lounge.

I would stay there any time I went to Madison. The staff was exceptional. The hotel was beautiful and clean.

41st Anniversary short weekend Getaway in a Great Location. Downtown Madison. !! Staff was awesome Excellent food choices.

We have stayed here many times before and usually stay in the Governor's Club. The Concourse is our favorite place and we would highly recommend it!

Very friendly staff and charming hotel! Zachary in the Governor's Club is the best!

We stayed at the Madison Concourse Hotel while in town for a wedding. It's central to so much in Madison. A quick jaunt to the Capital and State Street. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Room views of either the lake or Capital building, comfy beds and clean bathrooms. Plus, it's quiet! I'd definitely stay again.

Hi Jean! First of all, happy belated anniversary! We're so honored you chose to celebrate your special day with us. We love being a part of those fun memories for our guests. But we are so sorry we didn't do a better job of acknowledging your anniversary while you visited - we missed the mark there. It's great, though, that you had such a wonderful time in the lounge and got to celebrate with one another. That view is incredible - and it's the perfect way to commemorate 40 years together. We hope to see you again soon! Thanks for choosing The Madison Concourse Hotel and Governor's Club.

Thank you so much for taking the time to write about your stay. We are heartbroken to hear your stay was just "okay." We want every guest to leave feeling like they had an amazing visit - which includes an impeccable room, and amazing service. What you describe isn't representative that, and definitely not acceptable. We will look into what happened during your visit, and will definitely follow up on this in our weekly guest feedback meeting. Thank you for letting us know, and giving us the opportunity to improve our service. We hope we get a chance to have you back as a guest and make it up to you, and give you the amazing stay we know we can provide. Thank you.

Thank you so much for your feedback, Cindy! We are glad you had a nice stay. If you do stay with us again, please let us know of your bed preference! Although all of our mattresses are pillow top, we have ways to make slight adjustments that might help! Hope to see you again soon.
