“Great hotel next to Camp Randall”
Reviewed 26 September 2013

We were very lucky to get a room at the Wisconsin Union Hotel after planning a last minute trip for a football game. The lady who booked our room by phone was extremely friendly and helpful. In fact, the entire hotel staff seemed to go out of their way to provide great guest service. The room was very nice with comfortable beds, plenty of seating space, microwave, refrigerator, Keurig coffee machine, and a terrific shower. The price was a little high, but that was to be expected given all of the activity on the campus for the weekend. Finally, being located in the Union, there are a number of food and beverage options. We had one small issue with the bill, but the front desk staff immediately corrected the issue. We would definitely stay at the Union Hotel again!

The hotel was clean with a great location for Football Games. This is not the Union South that I was familiar with from twenty years ago. They did an excellent job with the hotel, recreational activities and overall presentation. I would stay gain in a moments notice. Great job all around!!

Room Tip: The suite was well worth the additional money.

Not sure why it took almost a year to submit my review, but I feel as if I was there yesterday. It was such a great experience. I couldn't believe a university-run hotel could feel so sophisticated. All the people that worked there were so nice and really cared about our experience. The rooms were clean and well-appointed. One issue is that this hotel gets a LOT of traffic for events, such as weddings, etc. and they could vacuum their halls and elevators at the beginning of the day and at the end of the day, before people go to sleep. Other than that, the hotel was spotless. The location is perfect and the parking is, too.

We just dropped off our son at UW Madison. Staying at the union was perfect. On campus, free parking, plenty of food choices in the union. Also, the bed was great - mom and dad needed a good nights sleep. Very clean and the staff was great. The price is cheaper than other hotels in the city!

Stayed at the Union for the first time. Was not even aware they had hotel rooms. Reception was friendly and helpful. The location was perfect as we had bikes. Rooms clean and perfect for an overnight. Highly recommend to book early if staying for a football weekend. Price was perfect for what you received and if you have a union membership, you will receive a discount. Will return!

Room Tip: Great price and location. Best rooms in Madison.

Never thought staying in a university-run hotel to be that nice and comfortable.
We had a room with the lake view. Room is nicely done, very clean, almost perfect.
Location is also wonderful for being downtown to access all university 'stuff'.

My husband and I had the pleasure of staying at the Wisconsin Union Hotel-Madison this past week. We were there for student orientation for our daughter who will be attending the U this fall. We chose this hotel for the location, it being in the Union South building where all of the parents/student meeting were to be held. What a 5-Star Hotel it was!! Starting with the front desk staff who were so pleasant and helpful to work with to a newly remodeled hotel that was clean and everything worked! Large enough and comfortable although the pillows were not to my liking. I did not request another as I assumed all were the same...lumpy filling. The bed was comfortable. The maids were efficient and fast, the amenities were lovely and the fridge was a nice size. The parking (free with room) was conveniently located under ground of the hotel so a simple elevator ride from the front desk. Loved the stay and would highly recommend to anyone who might want to visit their student.

Dear patty r,

Thank you so much for your energetic and kind review! We strive to consistently provide superior service and accommodations. It is great to hear that you found our housekeeping and front-desk staffs so helpful. I truly believe that our #1 goal is to provide for Union-members and parents of UW-Madison students like you, so your comments are very important. Parking, as you mentioned, is a hassle in this city, and that’s why we are happy to provide it for our guests.

Thanks again; and On, Wisconsin!
Eric
