Rated 4 out of 5 by AdamJK will return
Overall we had a very good stay. Room was great, and staff were generally excellent. The hotel bar had a surly waitress whop made possibly the world's worst drinks, but otherwise we were pleased, and will certainly stay here again when we're next in town.

Rated 2 out of 5 by SleeplessInMadison Not Worthy of Starwood Prefered Status
This hotel is convenient, however poorly managed. Staff was cold and disconnected, not helpful. Staff attitude was bad probably because they were understaffed and consequently overworked. Long waits for service. At one time we waited 30 minutes to receive our tab after lunch. Food was good, but dining experience terrible. Long waits in the lounge to get drinks etc....Cleaning Staff left door ajar all day, we left early in the AM to work a show, returning at night to retire only to find our room was left unlocked and open from the time they cleaned until late at night, fortunately my lap top was still there. Neighbors had a neglected dog in the room who whined and barked for 2 hours until security retrieved the owners, which then turned into a screaming match until 2am. When checking out the attendant didnt even have the manners to ask how my stay was so I requested to see a manager to raise issues, however they were too busy to review this so another clerk took the brunt of my frustration. Nice facilities, poorly managed.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Bostondweller wonderful hotel
hotel was very very nice. The location was wonderful (nice walking paths and quiet location).
The staff was more than friendly and extremely helpful upon check-in.
Room was pretty clean and housekeeping staff very pleasant.
I would definitely stay here again.

Make sure you check in as early as possible. Have stayed here twice and both times the rooms I was given were not the type I reserved. The only coffee available in the lobby is Starbuck's for a fee.
Pillows and bed linens are very nice. Bed is on the hard side.

Rated 3 out of 5 by Kelsey Stay here because it's the only SPG property in Madison
The hotel is nice. The food is good and love that there is a cafe in the lobby.
Compared to other SPG properties I have stayed at, it is just ok.
The gym is small and often crowded. The service is good but again just not at the same level as other properties.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Shelfish Would go back over and over.
My booked room was unavailable upon check-in, so I was bumped up to a preferred suite for no extra charge. Staff were extremely friendly, location was excellent, and hotel (common areas, and all parts of my room) was beautiful. I would love to return any time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by JRP04 Enjoyable Stay
A nice location with a friendly, helpful staff. My only mild criticism was the Club Room attendant appeared to be a bit overwhelmed - food was not being placed out and they had run out of some of the basics (eggs and tea).

I only at this hotel when in Madison. The staff (from check in to the bar and food service) are kind, friendly and well trained in customer satifaction. All in all, a great place to stay and relax even when part of it might include a little work or conf.

Rated 5 out of 5 by TM36 Our go to Madison stop for years
Whirlwind stop as always at this time for Great Taste tickets and the start of Craft Beer Week, so we didn't avail ourselves of too many amenities. Did appreciate the attentive van service.

This is a comfortable hotel, that fits the bill for business. Fitness facilities have been updated--but most the the hotel, especially the rooms. Surprisingly the room service burger was quite good. On the real downside---the remote did not work.

Rated 3 out of 5 by kw2013 OK for conference, not great for comfort and ammenities
I stayed for a few days during my company's annual sales meeting. The conference facilities were nice and it was convenient to be staying at the location of the conference. However, the room was sub-par. There was hair on the bed when I walked in, the toilet was dirty, and just overall, the room was dated. The website says the rooms have refrigerators which I needed for medical supplies. Only the suites actually have them, but after a roundabout discussion, they said they could bring one to my room since it was for medical reasons.
Another upset was the transportation. We were using their shuttle service for part of our meeting and our group ended up being 15 minutes late to our company meeting due to the fact that they didn't have enough shuttle drivers.
One morning at 5:15am, we were woken by a fire alarm asking us to evacuate the building.
I also heard others in my group saying they didn't have hot water for their shower one morning.
On a positive note, the price was reasonable and the food was good.
Overall, I was expecting more.

Our journey from ND to MI was much easier due to the accommodation. Our dogs were welcome and comfy. The $10 upgrade for our entire family included a nice evening snack and a very good breakfast. My grand daughter and I enjoyed the swimming pool.

Rated 5 out of 5 by ca15 Gentleman at check-in
The young gentleman who was at the check in was very helpful, even helped me with my bag since I had a cane and two pieces of luggage to handle and no bell person was available in the evening. He is great and went above the call Thank-you to him!

Was disappointed that I was required to pay additional $10 to use the Club Lounge
(Ownership does not seem to mean much)and then because there was a large group of rowdy sports fans who took over the Lounge there was no room to even sit down.

I had to arrive a day late due to a flight cancellation. I called as sson as I realized I would be delayed and the staff handled it perfectly. Another nice feature is the $5 voucher for meals if you opt to not have the daily room cleaning.

This hotel has many redeeming features. The room is great. Beds and pillows very comfortable. The staff is very accommodating. The speaker system in the meeting halls was terrible.

Rated 2 out of 5 by george29 downtown location? Misleading
the website suggests this property is located downtown but its not. Very inconvenient to get taxis downtown and hotel shuttle frequently unavailable. Very disappointing. The Concierge lounge food and atmosphere was not up to SPG standards

We stayed here for a wedding in Madison, and it was one of the best hotel experiences we have ever had. The bed was superior - comfortable mattress and premium bed coverings. Everything was pristine and well decorated. Will be back!

Your shuttle bus was heavily touted to us but it was mostly unavailable and had a very short range. Taxis were very expensive!
The hotel construction was substandard because you can hear sounds all night from all over the hotel.

Rated 4 out of 5 by travelover A solid hotel accomodation
If SPG had other properties in the vicinity, would have considered them as well. Agree with another poster/reviewer that the towel rack being so low over the toilet, affords no room for actually hanging towels. Shower temp fluctuated wildly, with pressure reasonable steady. Bed was rock hard. I actually brought my own mattress pad because of another reviewer, but it did not help. Also, brought my own fitted sheet, as the flat sheets did not stay put at all. curiously, when we folded back the duvet, we could see all the wrinkles from the previous night that were not smoothed out when maid fixed up the bed. she just laid duvet on top, and that was that. No real place for the coffeemaker that was placed on desk. One's paperwork could get all wet, so we moved it to an end table. As usual, one could not utilize bathroom mirror if another was showering. Asked for a bathrobe, and had to call two extra times. both times were told that it was on it's way. NOT. not placed on SPG floor, don't even know if there was one. club lounge was scant and not much there at all.

Room and hallways were dark and need to be updated. Restaurant food decent but too expensive.
Loved the bike rental outside!
