This hotel has the best view in Madison. The club includes complimentary appetizers and drinks. It was one of the best beds that I've slept in for a hotel in the downtown area of Wisconsin. If I'm in the area again, I would definitely return for the same service.

Thank you for staying with us, Igreen1977! One of our favorite aspects of the hotel is the amazing view from our guest rooms, and from our Governor’s Club Lounge. We love being in the heart of downtown Madison, especially since it means having the Madison Capitol right in our backyard. Make sure to request a capitol view during your next...

Usually I choose this hotel every time I visit Madison and my stay was good and easy. Not this time. I noticed there was no card "Privacy please" you put in the door lock and no newspaper was delivered to my room, but I let it go. The room was cleaned every day but no shampoo and conditioner was not...

This is the second time this year I have stayed at this hotel for a work related conference and each time it's a little nicer. Last time they were in the middle of renovations and the Lobby and restaurant were not open- much nicer now that is done. The rooms I had were large and comfortable - great pillows and...

Madison, Wisconsin is a great small city. It is easy to navigate, has an abundance of quality restaurants and pubs, State Street for night activities and plenty of fitness trails. The Madison Concourse Hotel has a perfect location, in the heart of city, right off Capital Square. I highly recommend the Governor's Club during your stay. It is only a...

The location is perfect for anything you need to do at the capitol, on campus or State Street. The hotel is older however it has been nicely updated to feel new. Most importantly the rooms were quiet and our beds were very comfortable. I do appreciate a big cozy white comforter to sleep with. (White always gives my mind some...

We stayed here for one night to celebrate my birthday. We were able to check in at Noon which was nice. They offered a complimentary bottle of Cava given that it was my birthday. It arrived chilled a little while later. Very nice tasting. The hotel is quite dated on the outside. Inside is however more modern especially the lobby....

I recently stayed at this hotel as part of an academic conference, and found the hotel to be very nice and centrally located in Madison. My room contained a queen size bed that was comfortable, but the room was not much larger than the bed. The bathroom was nice, with a fan (which seems to be rare in hotels). The...

Stayed here for 3 nights while attending some Epic software training. The rooms are very nice and the staff is very helpful. It is located just half a block from the capital and many restaurants in the area. I'd stay there again when I need to travel to Madison. Shuttle service to Epic is fine, but they do charge you...

This was our first time back at the Concourse in over ten years....the newly remodeled rooms were very comfortable, nice bath, great bed. Great convenient location to everything near the Square & State Street, yet still close enough to campus & Camp Randall.

It's good to have you back, Jim P! We absolutely love our remodeled rooms, and are glad you got a chance to enjoy them as well. If you didn't utilize it this football season, try our game-day shuttle during your next stay! It drops off and picks up our guests just a block away from the stadium. Go Badgers! Stephanie

We have stayed here many times, and continually marvel at what a good job they do. The hotel is always being updated and maintained. This year, the lobby, restaurant, and fitness center have all been remodeled. My husband comes here to teach classes, so I spend much more time in the room and really appreciate how well appointed it is....
