We spent only one night in Madison at the Concourse Hotel but thoroughly enjoyed our evening there. The location is perfect for walking around the capitol square and picking from a large number of restaurants for your meals. The garage beneath the hotel is very convenient and easy access to the hotel rooms. All of the staff we encountered were very friendly and helpful. We have already booked a longer stay at the Concourse for July, and we look forward to that visit. (Note-We did not book a Governor's Club room, floors 10-12, so we cannot comment on its amenities.)

My son recently moved from California to Madison for PA School so we will be visiting him regularly so I goggled hotels in Madison. I actually chose the Madison Concourse Hotel from reading the reviews so I'm giving mine now. The hotel staff were amazing, location perfect (across from the Capitol), walking distance to great restaurant and I highly recommend the Governors Club. I did choose the Governors Club room, after seeing all the amenities. From breakfast to happy hour and appetizers to dessert, and even entertainment (Lewes singing at 9:00) it was incredible!!! Also, they picked us up from the airport which was so convenient. The staff was so nice, friendly and helpful, the made our stay! We will definitely be back in three months, BOOK THIS HOTEL!!!

The governors floor is not the way it was, but the next best thing. All of the staff go out of their way from housekeeping to room service to the Circ restaurant staff to take care of you and try to replicate what used to be. Will return often. It will be nice to get back to "normal"

We have made The Madison Concourse our go to hotel for the 8 years we had kids attending UW-Madison. It is the best hotel in Madison. Great staff, clean and comfortable, all at a fair price (the handful of competitors that are close on quality are far more expensive). Circ is great for a quick lunch or breakfast and the Governor's Club is a great option for cocktail hour or breakfast. A special shout out to the staff - all dedicated to customer service.

After many years living in Madison we moved away last year. Our stay at the Concourse was our first return “home” and we loved it. The hotel’s concern for safety during COVID was apparent everywhere. We got food and drinks in the bar, at Starbucks, and in the restaurant. Enjoyed the food and felt safe and welcome each place. Our room was clean and comfortable. Most of all, we loved being downtown where the Capital Square and State Street were clean, beautiful, and great for walking on a lovely spring weekend.
