"Very convenient for the activities we had planned."
We stayed 2 nights including Christmas Eve. Our day-time schedule kept us very busy and we just wanted to crash and be comfortable. The room met our needs perfectly. The sleep number beds were great, and the opening of the new Twist restaurant was a nice surprise. Thanks for the friendly staff!

"WOW!"
I can summarize our three day stay in one word: WOW! I work for the Kohler Hospitality Group. This being a Five-Star facility, I believe my observations to be valid and reliable. I consider the Radisson of Madison to be 4-Star! I was impressed from the plush pool towels to the variety of in-room amenities. There were healthy breakfast buffet foods available to meet my organic vegetarian requirements. The place was spotless with new facility furniture. Smiles radiated from the Associates faces, including the room attendants, who each went out of their way to greet and meet at every opportunity. I look forward to our next visit to West Madison, WI. Within 24 hours of leaving The Radisson of Madison I have already passed my recommendation to eight family members.

Even though the restaurant was closed for renovation, the small bar area served wonderful food and the waiter/bartender was exceptional. He was cheerful and friendly and highlighted the use of local ingredients in the choices. The food itself was delicious and fairly prices (inexpensive for an in-hotel restaurant).

"A bit disappointing"
When we got to the hotel, we were greeted by a very nice man at the front desk. From there, we had a glass of wine from an awesome bartender. However, our room was not clean (the tub actually had a ring in it). It was also very noisy. I realize we were there when UW-Madison had a home football game, but the door to the room was not sound-proofed at all. Once the lights were out, you could see the outline of the room door because the light from the hallway shined through on all four sides. The complimentary breakfast was not well-stocked. The second day of our staff, the cleaning staff took our dirty glasses but did not replace them with clean ones.

"Would probably stay here again."
The hotel was great. The rooms were very clean and up-to-date. Didn't try out breakfast at all. The hotel bar wasn't a true bar. We stayed here a weekend for a football game. The shuttle took us downtown at 9:30 am for a 2:30 pm game. Their last "scheduled" pickup for the game was at 7:30 pm. Around 8 or 9 pm, we called them to see if we could get a ride back. They were very shady about it, and then said "well we're shutting it down for the night." Not my problem, just gave my $20 tip to a taxi driver instead.

"unhappy customer"
Large wedding on Saturday night and lots of children eating and drinking in the pool area. We returned from dinner that were going to use the pool and whirlpool, but the area was full of children sitting at the tables and on the chairs. We waited until Sunday to use the pool and whirl pool, but the whirl pool was then out of order. We went into the pool and then back to the room to shower before going out for dinner and the tub was so slow at draining that I was in water past my ankles, that is gross. My husband was so turned off the he did not shower. This was my husband's 50th birthday on Saturday and it was not what we wanted.

"Amenities/Cleanliness"
The whole shower rattled when the room upstairs used the shower and rudely awoke us at 0630. We were told it was the ice maker but I knew it wasn't because it was across the hall. Pool area-much need of upkeep, dirty floor with food, rust showing through paint, pool was cold. Breakfast-not enough seating for anyone to eat so people brought food back to rooms. Not what I expected for the price and the name "Radisson". Check-in staff were wonderful.

Location is good for shopping. Bed was very comfortable. Curved shower bar is nice. Could use more plug-ins but generally very satisfied with the room. Check in clerk was very considerate with lots of recommendations. Only down-side was really the free breakfast. Juices were basically colored water. Sausage patties were bland. The bagels were good, but next time I'd spend money and eat somewhere better.

This hotel is fine for a close location to UW Madison and is a solid 3 stars. Rooms are clean and functional (altho hate sink and mirror outside of bathroom and in central room). Kudos to photographer that made lobby sitting area appear 10x larger on website photos. Not a lot of "hang-out" space outside your room.

The rooms are teeny tiny for what you pay! Small bathroom, but the sink is outside, so that made getting ready easier. The pool was down for maintenance, which was a real bummer since the pool was why I chose this hotel over another. Front desk manager not at all apologetic about it.

This hotel was great. I stayed here with my girlfriend the night before the Madison Half Marathon. Everyone on the staff was beyond nice. They even had a special race food buffet out super early the morning of the race for the runners staying at the hotel. They also moved our checkout time from 11am to 2pm the day of the race so we would have enough time to come back and shower before heading home. Very clean room and only 10 minutes from Madison. I was extremely pleased.

"Free breakfast a secret."
The desk clerk did not mention the free breakfast that was indicated on the Expedia site. There was nothing about it (that it was available, where, when) in the hotel's informational binder in the room. I was placed at a room about 400 yards from the front desk. Lights in the parking lot did not work and I was uncomfortable being one of two cars in a dark lot and entering the building alone after dark through the door closest to my room. Scary. Walls very thin; could hear other guests' conversations, the sound of showers was extremely loud, every time the outside door was opened/closed, the entire room shook, and footsteps from above were very loud. Building seemed very dated. Tried to dial local number on phone and kept getting another guest's room or the front desk until the clerk said he "changed the setting" on my phone. Cable TV service slow--took several seconds for station to tune in after changing channels.

After spending a few weeks in military barracks at Volk Field, I decided to have a quiet stay in a nice hotel not far from the airport. I wasn't disappointed. It was my first experience with a Sleep Number bed. I fell asleep, so I guess it worked. The breakfast was the cherry on top. It was real breakfast with nice choices that left you going back for more. I would do this hotel again if I were in Madison again.

My husband and I were heading to Milwaukee for a Brewer's game and decided to stay a night in Madison on our way to Milwaukee. The staff was so incredibly friendly and welcoming from the moment we arrived. The hotel wasn't booked the night we were there so it was quiet and very few people were around. We were able to relax and have a few cocktails in the restaurant/lounge and became friends with the wonderful bartender. The breakfast in the morning was GREAT! So much to choose from and you are able to sit anywhere you want in the restaurant to enjoy it. I would definitely stay here again.
