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'.
