This is a lovely appointed Inn with traditional furnishings and real Southern hospitality. The rooms are as nice as any we have stayed in across the US. The breakfast was also delicious and more than expected for a continental breakfast. We highly recommend the James Madison Inn if you are in the area. A very nice restaurant is adjacent also.

I stayed at The James Madison Inn for a business meeting. I did not research the hotel prior to the event so I had no specific expectations. When it finally came to checking in and getting to my room I only had one word upon opening the door...WOW. The room was immaculate and beautiful. Very spacious with a living room,... More

Our room was spacious and the bathroom was very up to date with a walk-in shower and double sinks. The location was fantastic-... More

We had a beautiful room with a four-poster bed and fireplace. It was quaint and a great price. In walking distance to the wedding venue -- Variety Works. We loved the service, the breakfast was delicious and the room romantic. Would return here again if ever in Madison!

We come to Madison annually for July 4th and the James Madison Inn does not disappoint. The rooms are quite large with a walk-in shower, a sitting area and balcony. We prefer the "Market View" rooms; while the view is of a parking lot, it is much quieter at night since the "Park View" rooms face a somewhat busy street.... More

My wife and I got married in Madison at the Variety Works and were able to just walk over after the ceremony. The Inn is great and all of the staff were wonderful to work with both leading up to the wedding and the day of. We can't wait to go back and celebrate our anniversary there!

I really enjoyed the style and appearance of the inn. I was there for a wedding and it was very convenient - the Oak Room was a great place to socialize. My Mom became ill while we were there and the staff were extremely kind and took care of her while I had wedding duties.
