Really, this place can't be beat. The hotel staff seemed to be students, but was top-notch. I've stayed at other on-campus hotels across the country and the staff here was much better than any other place I've been. They even called me about 20 minutes after our 8:30 am checkout to let me know that I'd left my phone charger...

I visited Madison for one night during my daughter's student's tour. I did not have a rental car and I wanted to maximize my exposure to the University during my 24 hours there, This is the perfect choice for anyone visiting campus with a prospective student. it is located on campus - in the middle of the university.

We spent one night when we were in town for my son's concert. Nice hotel, good service, can't beat the location in the middle of campus! Great food and drink choices right in the building, including University of Wisconsin ice cream!

I chose this hotel due to the close proximity to a campus tour scheduled for the next morning. Yes, it is located above the South Union making it very convenient for an early wake up call! Beautiful room, great amenities, and wonderful service. Definitely the place to stay when visiting the UW-Madison campus.

If you want to be on campus at the University of Wisconsin -- and nearby enough to walk to State Street and Capitol Square -- this is the best place to stay. Union South is very nice -- much better than the old Union South -- and you have a number of food choices in the building, plus a good...

I visit my son at UW. He wants to stay with me downtown and I don't want to spend much. Union Hotel made us both happy. I got a discount with my sons UW ID and the price includes taxes. Rooms are great.

I spent 2 nights here on a work visit to UW. I was initially apprehensive, but very happy to be here. The location is excellent for the central campus. Being in a student union was no problem at all (access to the hotel floors is controlled, and noise was not an issue). There are eateries and cafes downstairs and across...

We stayed at Union South twice in the last two months. First time was in a suite. It's a beautiful hotel, but not well cleaned. The housekeeping crew straightens and fluffs, but it does not appear the room is well dusted or detail cleaned. Shaking the pillow dust would fly. We stayed 2 nights and they did not clean the...

Stayed at the WUH while giving a seminar at the university. It is a remodeled version of the old union that had been here when I lived in Madison. The rooms are nice (though I was not fond of the shower which had little water pressure, required you to stand in it to turn on the water, hence getting blasted...

Thanks for staying with us, and thanks for letting us know about the shower issue. We have informed our hotel manager. When we reimagined Union South, we did so with the needs of all of Wisconsin Union members in mind, including alumni and members of the community. Rather than create a cafeteria, we created individual restaurants, each with unique cuisine....

I stayed here on two separate occasions recently. The 1st time was Ok, not great. University students work the front desk.
