“Nice and Convenient”
Reviewed 15 November 2013

The hotel is attached to the Alliant Energy Center which made attending a conference very easy. The breakfast is excellent and runs very nice hours. The rooms are comfortable and nicely appointed. Will definitely stay here again for business in the future.

I have been staying at this property for several years. The rooms are clean and the beds are comfortable. But the property is getting a bit tired. Carpeting needs to be replaced and the room decor is from the 70's. But if it is close to your destination this is a good, decent, clean choice.

Dear B W,

Thank you for your comments on your stay. I'm glad that you found your room clean and comfortable. I am sorry that you are finding the rooms to be in need of renovation. We definitely hope to update our carpeting and decor, and your comments serve as valuable feedback. It is helpful to know the areas in which we need to improve, and I will share your comments with our management team.

The front desk staff was very pleasant. The free breakfast was nice, with eggs, cereal, biscuits, etc. There was a free cocktail hour, too. Those were the positives.
The room itself was quite musty smelling. We completely turned off the blower and that helped to some extent. The rooms are in desperate need of an upgrade. There was one queen bed in the room. Almost all hotels have a king in a room with just one bed. There were some questionable stains on the wallpaper, the bathroom countertop was chipped, the door frame was rusty, the paint was peeling off the bathroom door, the pillows are old. The furniture was saggy.
They put us (a couple) on a hall with a high school group. We had to call the front desk at 1 A.M. to ask them to send security due to noise. Why you'd put a couple on the same floor as a bunch of kids is beyond me.
You can walk to the Alliant Center, but not to campus or downtown.
Overall, not a pleasant experience.

I stayed here for one night. It was crowded but the check in/out was smooth. The rooms were very clean and spacious. The hotel was super accommodating and started the free breakfast early because the majority of the hotel was running Ragnar relay race. I would stay here again!!

Quite far from the city of Madison but great value for money. The hotel offers shuttle services to the airport, the city center and to several companies and venues in the area. Breakfast is included, there is a swimming pool and fitness available so what else could you possibly want?
Very friendly and extremely helpful staff too!
You will not find a hotel with larger rooms (all suites) easily and they are both clean and quite.

The Clarion Suites is connected to the Alliant Center so is convenient for people who are attending events at the center. Walking to the downtown area is a bit of a hike, although doable and quite pleasant.

My suite was generally clean although a partially drunk bottle of ginger ale had been left in the refrigerator. The kitchen lacked utensils, dishes - and, in fact was bare except for the refrigerator and microwave. The Wifi was reasonably swift. The maids were invisible cleaner-uppers who didn't disturb me. Thank you!

I'd return here if I were to attend another event at the Alliant Center.
