Clarion Suites at the Alliant Energy Center
Ranked #33 of 63 Hotels in Madison
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 11 August 2013

We travel to Madison often, and Clarion Suites is now the only hotel we use. The beds are comfortable and we were able to keep the room temperature where we like it. Staff members are very friendly and helpful, especially the housekeeping staff and those who run the nightly manager's reception and morning breakfast. The free food and drinks are wonderful and a nice perk. The location is close to the highway and it's easy to drive anywhere within Madison from the hotel. Limited options within walking distance (except the Alliant Center, which is next door). Highly recommended!

The property is plain on the outside but nice within. The rooms are spacious. An evening reception including beverages and snacks is an unexpected treat. The toiletries are of very poor quality and imported from China. Bring your own soap and shampoo.

My husband and I spent two nights here while attending a wedding in the Madison area. It's close to downtown and right off a main highway so it's very accessible to happenings in and around the Madison area. It's also easy to find. There's lots of parking available at no cost. The reception was held in down town Madison and if we'd have stayed there, it would have been more expensive and we would have had to pay for parking.

Also, if we'd have stayed down town we would not have received free chocolate chip cookies or free water or a free breakfast or a free happy hour! There are LOTS of perks at this hotel!

The room was VERY large and had a kitchenette as well as a sleeper couch. We really enjoyed the large comfortable room! The pool was pretty nice and the hot tub was too. Everything was very clean.

The only complaint I had was the lights were hard to figure out. You really had to play with them to have them turn off separately from one another.

The staff was really nice and interacted very well with the guests!

We found this hotel on Priceline. It is listed as Downtown/Capital Area but is not Downtown or next to the Capital so be careful when purchasing is you want to be next to the Capital. The hotel is a few miles outside of the Capital area and an easy drive up John Nolan Drive. The rooms were large and quiet. The Breakfeast was very good. The snacks were not the best but the beer was free so we did not mind.

Room Tip: While the hotel is often listed as next to the Capital is is not. It is a few miles away.

Thank you for taking the time to complete a review of our hotel. We appreciate hearing from our online booking guests and the feedback they provide.
It is true that the booking sites list our property as a Downtown Area Hotel. We are located 2 miles from the downtown Madison area, but you are correct, we are not located next to the Capital. In looking at the map describing the area of our hotel, we are located in the lower part of the Downtown Area section. I hope that this helps clarify our location.
Thank you for your comments regarding your stay with us. I am pleased that in spite of the misunderstanding regarding the location, you enjoyed your stay.
Thank you again,
G. Niesl GM

We stayed for a weekend at the Clarion and it was wonderful. The continental breakfast was to die for. The attendants serving the breakfast were friendly and very accomodating. When we needed items for our room, the attendants were right there to help us and give us what we needed including a plunger!! They even offered to do it for us. The room was clean and stocked to the fullest. When we stay in Madison again, we will definately stay there.

We stayed here for a concert we went to. This place was great!! Customer service was outstanding! They had a gift bag with chips and soda in the room when we got back after the concert. Breakfast was really good with a big choice of foods. I didn't have time to go in the pool but it looked nice.

Thank you so much for your wonderful review of our hotel. I am pleased that you were able to take advantage of our concert package for events at the Allient Energy Center and in the Madison area. It is fun to come back to your room to find treats after an event. Our staff enjoys providing that amenity to our guests!

We had two rooms and both were huge. Beds were comfortable and bathrooms were good sized. You won't get wowed by frills but if you want a nice place to sleep with some space this is tough to beat.

Only two miles from campus and really easy to get to.
