We needed to find a place to stay for our niece's graduation from UW in Madison. Things booked up quickly. We had wanted to stay a bit closer to the campus and downtown but could not find anything. This hotel ended up being great! It is brand new and well appointed. They have a shuttle that took us wherever we wanted to go, so location ended up not to be a problem. The staff was very friendly and helpful. And the breakfast was fine and an added bonus. I would highly recommend this hotel for the... Read more

The room I had was nice enough - clean and had a comfortable bed. Plenty of outlets, decent work space and nice enough feel. Nothing really spectacular, good or bad with the facility itself. Pool area was interesting as the pool is also the hot tub/whirlpool. Breakfast was adequate, but would have been better with some cook-to-order options. Great access to the Alliant Energy Center and to trails. I did find the staff to be exceptional, though! This was a work trip and we were all staying onsi... Read more

Beautiful, clean hotel very close to Madison! Location was perfect - close to downtown but still a little outside the city. Enjoyed our two nights here. Pool was beautiful and clean! Breakfast was good. Hotel was fully booked when we stayed but you wouldn't have known it. Was nice and quiet and hotel was consistently spotless. Every employee I dealt with was helpful and friendly!

Once I planned to visit my Son at College....I knew I wanted to stay here again, and, did so. The fact that the Hotel is convenient to all destinations on the UW Campus as well as outer destinations around Madison is 2nd to the fact that the facility remains pristine after being open for almost 2 years, has a Friendly and knowledgeable Team (including new Team Members who are brought up to speed quickly and efficiently) and just does the Holiday Inn Express Brand PROUD.

I had a lovely stay here! A new staff member had given away my room and since they had to look for a new room they upgraded me even though I was not complaining. The staff was friendly and I always enjoy the Holiday Inn breakfast. This relatively new hotel is in great shape!

Stayed at holiday inn during a training at Epic, i reserved a king suite, a spacious large room with a sitting area and large comfortable bed, very clean . What impressed me most are the sweet and friendly staff, starting with the shuttle driver Rick to the hotel manager Jessica and desk staff Ashton. a Decent breakfast , with daily shuttles to Epic and the airport. couldn't ask for anything more .

Ashton exceeded expectation for he consistently went the extra mile. From what I have witnessed this is core to who he is. He makes sure the guests are well taken care of, comfortable and are having a good time at the various hotel events. In addition to his gracious spirit that connects strangers together, the hotel has a hip outside patio with a fire pit to hang out. The decor is current, and clean. The rooms are spacious and comfy.

Centrally located with easy access to UW, the Capitol and downtown, this hotel excels at personalized service and excellent accommodations. Staff are friendly and eager to please. Rooms and bath were impeccably clean. Coffee service was replenished nightly. Overall, a great value with easy access to Madison's key locations.

Great and friendly service, clean, excellent room, and we loved the back patio to take your drink, watch the robins nesting in the little tree and just relax. The hotel is well located for going downtown or to the campus as well as getting out of town for other locations. A sign for the hotel at the entry/service road would be helpful.

My husband and I were on a 12 day road trip across the US. This was the best IHG hotel we stayed at. Friendly, clean, bright and comfortable rooms, décor was very nicely coordinated, good breakfast, very good happy hour! It is not far from the downtown area although you would probably need to drive. Great value!

I used to spend 100+ night a year in hotels, but since retirement, that number has been reduced considerably. In all of my travels within North America, Europe and Australia, this property ranks in the top 5%. The booking was on points, originally in another town, but switched as our travel plans changed. We have stayed in Madison before, generally along the highway, but this time we left the well traveled route and headed into town. My GPS was a little confused by the address, but with a ...

We stayed here one night as we were in town for the Def Leppard concert. Everything was excellent! The room was quite large with very tasteful, modern decor. Super clean, staff were very friendly and courteous. Great location as we were able to walk to both a bar and grill to eat and then to the concert at the Veterans Coliseum right across the street. Would definitely stay here again.

We stayed here our first 2 nights on our recent trip to Wisconsin. It was close to downtown but not quite downtown. The room was clean, quiet, and the bed was very comfortable. It was nice having a shuttle to take you downtown especially during the time of The Farmers Market where I am happy I did not drive. The staff and breakfast were also very good. As an extra touch they had fruit flavored water in the lobby throughout the day and cookies later in the day. I would definitely stay here ... Read more

Such a super clean hotel. The rooms were beautiful and crisp and clean. The staff--everyone--were so polite and friendly! Truly a great experience!!

This hotel is located very close to the trails, has a polite reception staff, clean rooms, and free parking. It was walking distance to Lake Monona, Convention Center, State Capitol building (which is huge and a must-do), the happening 6-7 block State Street, and University of Madison --- all these are on an isthmus (very cool)! While at the University, do try and go to Lake Mendota and Memorial Union Terrace where you can sit and enjoy live music, beer and watch the sail boats!

Brand-new, super clean and comfortable. Our family of 5 stayed here while we visited Madison for a Kohl Center event. A suite is a must-have for our growing teenagers. The pull-out couch included a lounge-type side chair that was perfect for our 11-year old to sleep on while his brother used the pull-out. Plenty of space for all. The breakfast was abundant and hearty. Will stay again.
