We stayed at the hotel Ruby Marie for seven nights when we visited our son who’s studying at the University of Wisconsin during the fall semester. The first two nights we had a smaller room, after that we had a large room. Both were convenient and nice. The service was very good. We´re from the Netherlands and were to stay in the USA for a couple of weeks. That’s why part of our laundry was done by the hotel without any additional costs. The hotel staff was really warm and welcoming.
The complimentary breakfast was just great. On weekdays breakfast was served at the Lake View Bakery and Deli. It was delicious. Each morning the baker surprised us with all kinds of fresh baked goods and hot breakfast items. During the weekend a delicious breakfast was served at the Come Back Inn. You could choose from a large menu. The free drink vouchers each day were also a nice gesture.
The hotel is situated very conveniently, about a 5 minutes´walk from the Capitol Building. A walk to the Campus takes about 20 minutes. There are also a few parking garages at the campus. They are not expensive. You can get a map of the campus in the UW-building in the Union South in Union Street. The map is very convenient when looking for a parking garage at the campus.
Madison is such a nice town. There is also a nice walk along Lake Mendota to Picknick Point. There’s a beautiful view of Madison. If you’re in Madison on a Saturday, don’t miss the Farmer’s Market. We also loved the piano bar and the stand-up comedian in the Comedy Club. All at a short distance from the hotel Ruby Marie.
When staying at Madison, the hotel Ruby Marie is a perfect choice.
