Check-in went smooth, lobby and staff were welcoming, room was clean, and valet parking was affordable...we were very impressed with the hotel as a whole accept for the spiders on the windows! We opened up the curtains and were frieghtened to see...

YIKES, thank you for letting me know. So strange. We actually have our windows cleaned a few times per year, including just recently this spring. Those spiders work quickly. I hope you will give us another try. We would love to have you back. I appreciate the review otherwise and will get that room checked out.

Excellent staff, service and well appointed hotel in great location! We were very pleased with our stay. Very friendly, and professionally well run Hilton. The hotel cafe was very good for breakfast. The only improvement would be the ChopHouse hotel restaurant, which we felt was not up to the high standards of the Milwaukee ChopHouse.

Very nice Hilton. Right on the lake (many rooms offer lake view, some view Madison/ capital). Nice ($$$$) Steakhouse on property plus more casual bar/ restaurant. Rates can fluctuate a lot. If you get the low rate it's a good value. Rates on the higher side seem excessive. PS - Parking garage below hotel is $15 /day and spots are...

Nice review, thank you! It's true that some of our parking garage is tight, but we have spaces for larger vehicles if needed. We also offer valet parking, which is a great option. Thanks again for taking the time to share your review. Hope we see you again.

Great hotel to be in the heart of Madison. Down the street from the capital building, great dining, and attached to the Monona Terrace convention center. Staff was helpful and efficient. Opted for corner king room and was thrilled to have such a great view. Would stay here again.

Shout-out to Julia who gave us tips and guidance to the best local pub/breweries. The hotel itself was nice and up-kept. I was pleasantly surprised of the hotel parking as it was only $15 a night, with in and out privileges! I would definitely come back again.

We appreciate the candid review. Shake the Lake is one of those times that can stress parking to the limits. I am sorry that we did not have a space set aside for you when you came back.

My husband, dog and myself had a terrific night at this Hilton. We splurged for a king bed and a lakeview. We didn't want to leave the room.

With great views of the lake and a very short walk to the capital square, the Hilton Madison is an excellent choice. It's also connected to the Monona Terrace Convention Center. Pay the extra $$ and ask for a lake view room. The steak house was solid but a tad pricey. The Olive bar is small and can get overwhelmed...
