Although the hotel is older, the property is well kept and has nice amenities and a friendly and helpful staff. The rooms are traditionally decorated and have wonderful bath amenities, coffee maker. Turn-down service in the evenings with ice bucket refills. Mornings offer a complimentary continental breakfast (coffee, tea, and homemade treats available in the lobby all day). If you're...

Charming hotel in a lovely location within walking distance of train to midtown NYC (if you are sensitive to the sound of train whistles that may not be a selling point). Excellent restaurants on site. Room decor was nice, nothing special. My room overlooked the expansive lawn and mature trees - truly a peaceful view. Room was very spacious and...

Local told us about this hotel. Checked it out through website, looked very nice but price was more than we wanted to spend. Went on Priceline and got the room for 1/2 the price. More than impressed with rooms and staff and breakfast. Later on found out that the hotel is on the posh side and people cannot believe the...

The Madison Hotel is a nice historic hotel between Madison and Morristown NJ. They have two outstanding restaurants - Rod's and the Red Dog Tavern, which is the main reason I stay there. Other than that, I can't understand how they call themselves four star, the rooms are outdated, the bathrooms are dingy (black mold in the grout of the...

The Madison Hotel is a reminder of a more elegant age. This great hotel is not a member of any chain, which itself is unusual in this day and age. The grounds, the hotel and the rooms are way above the standard hotel chain. The restaurant is excellent. The staff are uniformly knowledgeable and helpful. But, the best of all...

This is a nice historical property. Rooms are in a very classical style, but clean and look still ok (a bit outdated). They have good restaurants and bars on site. Breakfast is unfortunately very poor.

The rooms are nice. The lobby is very cool. The staff was very pleasant. the breakfast was good. The only negative is that you can hear the trains through out the night. If you are not use to trains, it is hard to sleep.

We were super pleased with the hotel! Thought it was actually too nice for a one day stay. Hotel had an old time feel but with modern amenities!

The Madison Hotel is a great place to stay. Extremely friendly staff and great location. It is just across the street from the train station and close to Madison. I would recommend people stop by reception to try out the Arnold Palmer and cookies that are available everyday.
