My stay at the Madison Concourse Hotel in July 2023 highlighted a mix of commendable features and notable discomforts. The hotel's prime location in the heart of Madison, Wisconsin, is its standout quality, offering easy access to numerous city attractions. The expansive lobby of the hotel impresses with its ample space, ideal for casual meetings or relaxing. However, my experience with the room's bedding was less than satisfactory. The linens and pillows, lacking in variety and comfort, significantly affected my sleep quality. Despite efforts to address this with the front desk, the response was inadequate, with limited options provided and a lack of managerial assistance. Room amenities and space were generally good, meeting basic expectations. Room service offered enjoyable meals at reasonable prices, a pleasant aspect of my stay. Access to the Governor’s Lounge, courtesy of my room's location, was a mixed experience. The view of the Capitol building was a highlight, but the lounge itself was somewhat underwhelming, especially in comparison to similar amenities in luxury hotels globally. On a positive note, the hotel's car service for airport transfers was excellent, and the luggage storage was efficient and convenient. However, the limited time at the hotel meant I could not fully explore all its offerings. The strategic location of the Madison Concourse Hotel is a significant advantage, making it a suitable choice for those visiting Madison. Nonetheless, the hotel seems to rely heavily on this aspect, perhaps neglecting other areas like bedding comfort. While the city itself provided a delightful backdrop to my stay, the hotel's shortcomings, particularly in terms of sleep comfort, were a letdown. This makes it a recommendable option with reservations, especially for those who prioritize location over all else.

This was my 3 trip to Madison and stayed at the Madison Concourse Hotel each time. All the staff was exceptionally so kind and helpful. The showers had the best pressure ! The pillows omg..., wish I could of brought them home with me. With all the trips there, I was there totaling 17 days, the location was awesome, walking distance to some of the finest restaurants that Madison offers. Even though it was all for business, I had a grand time thanks to this awesome Hotel ! The Capital was absolutely beautiful at night.
