Maybe the Governor's Club Level feels like a cut above (based on other reviews) but the "regular" rooms were...fine. I wouldn't NOT stay here if the price was right, but I wish I'd stayed at the Edgewater. Our room had a tiny window with no view. It was dark, the thermostat was tricky (too hot! too cold!) and the heat itself kind of loud. The decor was nondescript and ditto the bathroom. That sounds negative, but honestly, it was....fine. Not a treat or a balm for the soul. But solid. Clean. Good enough. Nice lobby. Nice staff. Decent food in the restaurant. The location is super convenient if you want to be downtown. I needed to be on campus more, which was a bit of a pain. So, yeah. If the price is right the hotel is solid. But it won't wow you. And parking is an extra $15/night.

The Concourse is the best location in downtown Madison. It's close to everything and has a beautiful light, event areas and great guest rooms. You cant go wrong choosing the Concourse. We try to stay here every time we're in town.

Great Hotel!!!

Such a lovely hotel!! I ran the Madison Marathon and I dragged my family with me. The hotel was RIGHT on the Capitol square which was both the start and finish to the race. It was a PERFECT location to a wonderful city!
We will definitely be back!

Great people, Great Service for a week at a World wide event!

This is my eighth year staying at the Concourse Hotel on the Governor's Club Level-- and it always meets our expectations! The Club level offers so many amenities, and the Lounge is so well done with wonderful breakfast foods -- and the evenings are so nice in a relaxing and well managed bar area -- with wonderful bartenders -- especially Zach- who was one of our outstanding bartenders from this 2018 trip! And if we needed anything like extra towels, waters, etc.-- the staff delivered promptly. The Shuttle service provided by the hotel is exemplary with great drivers who take us to and from our place of business which was the Alliant Energy Center. Overall I would highly recommend this Hotel-- it may sound a little expensive on the Governor's Club level- but what you get in food for breakfast, happy hour foods and desserts, and your drinks- we find it a great deal -- instead of going to a restaurant bar downtown. And sometimes we have a drink and appetizer -- and then go to a wonderful restaurant in the area- which the staff and or the Shuttle drivers like Brian recommend- and all have been good!! The beds are very comfortable, and love the large walk in showers and space in the bathroom and the bedroom. And we don't mind walking at times to close by fun bars, restaurants, and neat shopping too! Enjoy!!

Don’t leave anything behind.

Nice enough hotel but don’t forget anything in your room because you won’t get it back. Our daughter put my scarf, that cannot be replaced, in one of the room drawers and after calling the same day we checked out within a few hours it was gone.
