The staff are always pleasant and very helpful. Nice clean facility. The room was spacious and nicely laid out. The meeting rooms are very nice and the food was excellent. The staff do a nice job of setting up lunch for 200+ people.

This is the second time that I have stayed at the Concourse Hotel for a conference. This hotel is perfectly located on the "Square" where you can walk to food and various other activities. The front desk staff is very helpful and professional. This last time I was upgraded to the Governor's club and it was great. The private lounge...

We booked a room in the governors club, which is supposed to be the top of the line for the Concourse. When we arrived at check-in, we were informed that we had been moved down to the 10th floor, which is not the governors club. We would be allowed to access the lounge on the Governors club floor (12th). We...

Terrible bed - lumpy and thin. Pillows even worse - really lumpy and flat. Room either roasting or freezing. When you turn on the fan or heat, the noise is very distracting. Decent sized workspace in room. Was there on business and the hotel nickel and dimed my company. None of the arrangements that were contracted before our arrival were...

Loved every minute in this very nice hotel in the center of downtown, right off famous State Street. After the best sleep we've had in months, we woke up Saturday morning and walked a block block to the Farmers Market circling the capitol, then walked down State Street to the U of W. Had a delicious light dinner in the...

This hotel is really nice. Beautiful location right next to the capital building and in walking distance to campus and great restaurants and bars.

Attended my nephews wedding in August and this was the hotel recommended. It was incredible once our room was provided. The view of the capital especially at night was breathtaking.

I selected the hotel because of the proximity to UW Madison but I'd return because of the amenities and my great experience with the hotel staff. The housekeeping team especially deserves a shout-out when I accidentally left my door open.
