Just got off the phone with Myron “Bringing the sunshine inside”at The Edgewater reservations desk; he could not have been more friendly or more helpful. I’d called to check that the rate I'd booked was the same as a family wedding block. Myron assured me I had booked the best rate and was pleasant and responsive to my query. I’m certain we will have a great stay if Myron is indicative of the caliber of The Edgewater's staff.

We stayed at the Edgewater for a Badger football game and to see some friends compete in the Iron Man. A very nice hotel, good location, beautiful views. But it is very expensive and there are other good, less expensive options. The best option, especially for Badger alums, and for a lot less $ is the Lowel Center in their remodeled section facing the lake. The Lower Center is a great location close to Memorial Union and with great views of the lake. Plus it has a good breakfast included.

I booked three nights at the Edgewater when I moved my daughter into the dorm for her freshman year at UW. I am now officially in love with this hotel. The staff was friendly and helpful. My room had a view of the beautiful lake and shoreline as well as the Capital building. I was able to walk to many places on campus. The famous Union Terrace was a short and scenic 1/2 mile walk from the hotel.
In addition to the excellent hotel restaurants, I could walk to many other nearby fun food venues. I had a relaxing afternoon at the spa, which was perfect after dropping my only child off at college.
I’ve already booked several weekend visits for fall swim meets at UW.

We splurged on a lakeside room with all glass windows for our 50th anniversary. The room was beautiful, the bathroom was spacious, and the shower was strong and big enough for two. We couldn't park in the garage because our kayaks and rack made our SUV too tall, and the hotel made a place for us that was safe and supervised. Great location, great views, great service!

Room Tip: Lakeview rooms are a treat!

We booked a number of rooms at the Edgewater for our wedding guests to stay at, and when we called to make sure each guest would be able to check in despite the rooms being under our name, Myron made sure that not only would they be able to, but that payment would be a breeze. Thank you to the Edgewater! This is such a weight off of our shoulders. This is a beautiful hotel, and we're so glad that our friends and family will be able to stay here.
