Recently stayed with my wife for the weekend. Centrally located about a block away from the Capitol it's close to everything in downtown Madison, WI. Easy underground parking is a breeze and only $10.00/night. Check in was quick and efficient. The front desk personnel were very courteous and knowledgeable about the area. We stayed on the top floor which is part of what is called the Governor's Club. Nicely appointed room. Good views of Lake Mendota to the west. The lounge is a great retreat. The food and refreshments are included in the room rate. Basics for breakfast, scrambled eggs, cinnamon rolls, yougurt and juice. Afternoon bar service is a great way to have a happy hour. Top shelf pours and a selection of bottled beers that includes two local breweries. Nighttime desserts with refreshments. The restaurant downstairs is average at best. Breakfast choices are basic, but are reasonably priced. With so many other restaurant options available within a few blocks there are better choices. The bar on the lobby floor is clubby and has a good vibe. The beginning of State Street is also about a block away. Would definitely recommend this hotel for anyone staying in downtown Madison, WI.

Room Tip: Opt for the Governor's Club floors which occupy the top three floors of the hotel. East side ro...

The Madison Concourse provides excellent service, amenities and spotless rooms. It is also an easy walk to local attractions and the waterfront. The front desk staff were extremely helpful. The airport shuttle was also a plus. Would definitely return.

My wife and I stayed at the Madison Concourse on the weekend of April 26-26 for the annual Crazy Legs Classic run. We found the hotel to be very clean and the service to be excellent. More than anything else, the central location was great so we walked to almost all of our locations. We are budget travelers so this hotel was a little more than we usually spend, but we felt the extra $$ was worth the location. I would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Note to anyone staying, there is no continental breakfast here but there is a restaurant on site and plenty of places withing walking distance.

My husband, brother, and I went to Madison to visit family.
From the very beginning, when we had to add a second room to our reservation, the staff could not have been more accommodating.
Our stay at the hotel was perfect - the location is fantastic, the amenities are great, everyone was friendly & helpful.
We would definitely stay there on future trips!
I highly recommend the Madison Concourse!!

Our family attended a wedding reception at the Madison Concourse Hotel two weeks ago. The hotel was top notch from the booking of the room, greeting upon arrival, fantastic meals, cleanliness and updated hotel rooms, to our checkout.

In my travels I have come to learn early on that the staff is what makes or breaks a stay. the entire staff was excellent. We were treated like royalty.

I will definitely stay at the Concourse Hotel on our next visit to Madison.

Although I can't compare it to any other hotels because it was my first stay in Madison, I picked the Concourse based on its web page profile and the high number of positive ratings it enjoyed, and those rating turned out to be correct!

We chose to stay in a "governor-level" room, which was worth the extra money, and added a "Farmer's Market package" to boot! That meant we could have free snacks and free cocktails at the Governor's Club in the hotel, received $20 off from a meal at the hotel restaurant or room service, could have a free continental breakfast at the Governor's Club, and also received two insulated shopping bags for the Saturday morning farmer's market (which we put to very good use).

We had a great view of the river from our room, the room was clean and well appointed, and the staff were all very gracious, welcoming and friendly.

Had a 2-day conference - excellent staff, facilities, food. We have come back twice a year for some 4 years or so. You see the same staff, which means they are treated well, and we have developed a great rapport over the years. They are ALWAYS ready to help. I don't hesitate to highly recommend the Concourse for an overnight stay or for conference events.
