I have stayed in Madison for many conferences in the past decade, and the stay at the Concourse was by far the best! The amenities and size of the guest rooms were wonderful and will be a good choice when I have my family with me. This hotel will be at the top of my list of choices in Madison...

I stayed at this hotel last month for a conference, and was blown away by the experience. The hotel's location is amazing-you could not be more central, in the prettiest part of Madison, with the biggest and best farmer's market in America literally down the block every Saturday. The hotel itself is lovely: elegant, demure, but just very very comfortable....

Our daughter is getting married next year in Madison and wanted us to check out this hotel for her guests. My wife and I gave it two thumbs up. The room was well-equipped (mattresses were wonderful), and the bathroom large enough for two to shave, put on make-up, dry hair, whatever, at the same time. Food at the bar (restaurant...

Stayed here for 3 nights for Ironman Wisconsin. An excellent property with all full-service hotel amenities. Very nice large room. The hotel has a nice game room off the pool area with air hockey, ping pong, and other games - no charge. Nice underground parking for a fee. They forgot to add it to our bill and waived it when...

The Concourse Hotel is a nice hotel in a great location just down the street from the Capitol. The room (I had a regular room, not a Governor's Club room) was a nice size and had a very good setup for watching TV, getting work done at the desk, and just generally getting around. The room also had plentyof power...

The front desk staff were very friendly and helpful. The room was modern in decor, very clean and comfy. Great location near theater venues, the Capitol and Menona Terrace. The view of the Capitol was fantastic! Definitely will return!

The hotel is located a very short distance from the Capital Building. There are numerous restaurants nearby. The rooms are spacious and comfortable, but plain.

The hotel is conveniently located in Madison. I was there for only 18 hours but was impressed with the quality and cleanliness. I was warned of the low clearance height in the garage. Be forewarned, again, they mean it. Your truck will not fit! And, by the way, the bed was very comfortable.

Hotel is a great place to stay. It was an easy walk to the Monona Terrace Conference Center. The Farmers Market on the Square was excellent. The Children's Museum is awesome. The restaurant has an awesome breakfast selection. Dinner is great too.
