My wife is a UW alum and has previously stayed in the old union hotel located in the main union, on the lake. She always referred to it as something close to dorm style. On this trip, we decided to check out the newer Union Hotel in the refurbished Union South. What a surprise! This place was great down to the smallest detail. Staff friendly and helpful. Parking convenient. The room was well-appointed and included a good view. Loved the UW decor everywhere. Only wish there were a better breakfast option on site. All other aspects of this place rock! First hotel I ever stayed in that include a climbing wall and a bowling alley. Awesome! This is my new go-to spot in Madison.
