A great place to hangout on a football weekend
Reviewed 18 hours ago

the rooms were clean, nice and quiet despite a football weekend. The club level we always enjoy was pretty solid. Great views of the capital. We would stay here again. The atmosphere at the bar was friendly but not to boisterous. there are lots of bars within walking distance for that.

Governor’s Club never disappoints

We LOVE the Governor’s Club at the Madison Concourse hotel. It’s our “go to” place to stay when visiting our son at UW-Madison. The amenities are well worth the price we pay to stay on the concierge level.

Be wary of the parking trap PLUS poor service accomodating a life threatening food allergy
Reviewed 4 days ago

I was an overnight guest at the motel while attending a conference there. I tried to park in their ramp, but after driving through the ramp twice, it was still full. Their signage said the ramp was for overnight guests only, and the overflow parking was available at the public ramp a block away. When I checked in, they said parking was free to overnight guests. I explained about the ramp being full and they said they had a lot of conferences at the motel and there was nothing they could do about it. So I would just have to park in the public ramp and pay for it. Think about this. They charge people who park in the ramp and are not overnight guests. So they made extra money on the parking spot that should have been available for me or another overnight guest at no cost. And I had to pay $23 for public parking. What a racket!

Additionally, they were advance contacted about a life threatening food allergy. At the first meal, lunch, Julie Woodward, Director of Catering, forgot to make arrangements to accommodate the food allergy and when people tried to contact her, she was out to lunch. The problem was eventually fixed, but the person with the food allergy was served well after everyone else.

Early Check In and Walking Tour of the Capitol
Reviewed 7 days ago

We arrived in Madison just after the noon hour on our way home from our Door County trip for a one night stay and parked at the hotel's indoor garage. On a whim, we went to the front desk to see if we might get an early check in and we did. The room was clean and spacious as we expected. Early check in allowed us to tour the Capitol building, walk around the University of Wisconsin and tour the downtown area. Later in the afternoon we went to the twelfth floor for free appetizers and drinks which was an unexpected surprise. Later that evening we had a light meal and cheese tasting in the restaurant. Would not hesitate to stay here again for pleasure or business.

Great City Hotel
Reviewed 1 week ago

I have stayed here several time on the Governor's Club floors. Excellent hotel. Beds are very good, rooms are large, fabulous views. The club is very nice. Breakfast is okay but the drinks and appetizers are nice. It can get crowded around 5:00 but was not crowded at breakfast.

We stayed for 3 days mid-week on the 14th floor in room 1436. It had an awful tub/shower that was very dangerous. Lighting was not great in the bathroom for make-up. The hotel is very pricy mid-week. On Sunday night we checked in again and had 1209, which was great! It was on the same floor as the club. We had a great walk-in shower and a nice vanity with excellent lighting in the bathroom. Parking is pricey but convenient.
