3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

The staff was courteous and attentive. Our room was clean and there were sufficient towels. They even supplied an iron, ironing board, extra blanket, and a hair dryer. I didn't understand why the mini refrigerator was place in a small cabinet, because it only made it cumbersome to access the contents. The have a workout facility, pool, and even a game arcade , but we never checked them out. They only charge $10 to park our car and the ticket they gave us allowed us in and out parking access for our stay.

I had a wonderful stay at this hotel; the staff was very nice and accomidating my needs.

We always enjoy staying at the Madison Concourse when we are in town to watch a Badger game. The staff is friendly and it is conviently located.

Good walking distance to many great places to eat and drink, and the capital building itself. Not too far from campus either. Downside: room was nothing special, beds just ok, amenities bland, and was too cold and couldn't easily be adjusted. Basic trade off is location for quality. With better beds, may have given it a better rating.

Great location next to Capitol. Strongly recommend the governors club.

Look out your window to either the Wisconsin State Capital or to 1 of Madison's beautiful lakes. Park your car and walk around the Capital looking at a variety of restaurants to tempt your palette. You'll find everything from Asian restaurant to Tibet to French cuisine to fresh from the farm dining. Walk State Street which is bike and people friendly until you come to the University of Wisconsin. Don't miss the museums, art centers, student union and lakefront. The zoo is free and delightful. The hotel has a nice exercise facility, indoor pool, hot tub, sauna and ping pong all located on the 3rd floor. There also is a concierge floor only available to those who splurge and book there.

My husband and I stayed here after the Yes concert. It was so nice to just walk a couple blocks from the overture center to our hotel! The governors club was worth it just for the delicious breakfast!
