My wife and I spent a weekend at the Madison Hotel and had a great time. Staff was friendly and helpful. The bar and restaurant were excellent in terms of food and service. The hotel gives off a feel of elegance while being a great value. We will be planning a return trip soon!!

We stayed in a suite May 12-13 for graduation at nearby Drew University and used it to host a small graduation party afterward. The suite is only slightly larger than a normal hotel room, but features a web bar area with a couple of bar stools. I was expecting something bigger with a separate room away from the bedroom, so that was disappointing. The room felt a bit musty when we first entered, but once we opened the window for some fresh air, it was fine. Otherwise the room was OK. Location-wise, we were just a few minutes from the University by car, so that was ideal.

The hotel offers a free continental breakfast downstairs in their beautiful and spacious lobby, and we took advantage of that. Lots of fresh fruit, breads, danish, hard-boiled eggs, cereal and more.

The hotel has a very nice restaurant, although I cannot remember the name. Good food, and only somewhat expensive. I would recommend it.

The hotel does a lot of catering. There were several events going while we were there, including at least one wedding. There is a large atrium on one side of the hotel that would be a beautiful setting for any event.

Congratulations on the graduation! and thank you for staying with us I am glad you found the location ideal. We are blessed with our proximity to not only Drew University, but also St. Elizabeth and FDU, many Fortune 500 companies, the NY Jets training facility, Morris County historical sites, Statue of Liberty as well as a train that travels directly into NYC. I am also glad you enjoyed the complimentary cold breakfast buffet, and one of our two restaurants. We look forward to having you as a guest whenever you visit northern NJ or NYC.

We attended a Wedding Reception at The Madison Hotel & stayed 1 night. Before the wedding we had lunch at Rod's Steak & Seafood Grill on the premises. The food & service were excellent! I had a Crabcake Sandwich & others had the Turkey Club Sandwich & the Waldorf Salad - all great! We told our waiter we were in a hurry & they helped us with our menu selections (what would be faster) & provided prompt service.

The complimentary breakfast the next morning was adequate but not extensive. The shampoo, conditioner & lotion in the room were fantastic - made with blood orange. The hotel did not have vending machines nor a gift shop & there was no refrigerator in our room. Snacks & bottled water could be purchased at the front desk.

The hotel has numerous meeting & banquet rooms. There were 2 wedding receptions & several parties going on when we were there. We enjoyed the appetizers at the reception we attended. The dinner was served too late & it took too long between courses, so we left before the entree was served.

Overall we enjoyed our stay.

I stayed here 3 days. Decent rooms, breakfast informal but pleasant choice and included for me. Adjacent bar and restaurant lively and full of character. Staff helpful/friendly 'ish. Need car as a few miles from centre of Morristown unless you use train. This is close by and doesn't bother me but the trains run thru the night and like to hoot a lot!. Morristown is an interesting and lively place compared to many small towns.
Would stay again as good value compared to some of the other hotels I stayed at locally

Room Tip: Try to be the other side from the train track

I was visiting Morristown on business, and decided to choose an independent hotel rather than the usual chains. I was blown away by the level of service, the decor of the lobby, the personal attention I received from staff, and the quality of the room. The pictures of this hotel don't begin to do it justice, and I found it a welcoming spot to relax in the midst of a busy business trip. The fresh baked cookies that greeted me on arrival were second only to the delicious breakfast selection the next morning. Nothing felt "ordinary" or routine about the place (a common issue with the chains). Definitely highly recommend for business or leisure.

Very nice staff. Very attentive. Clean and well maintained. Smallish pool, but nice overall. Close to train to NYC. Surprisingly large rooms, nice places to eat inside. Not disappointed.

This well maintained hotel offers well furnished, large rooms and an unusually nice continental breakfast. There are also two excellent restaurants on the property. The hotel is next to the Convent train station with direct service to New York's Penn Station. There are conference facilities. This would be an excellent place for a company retreat or meeting if meeting planners are looking to "away from it all."

The hotel staff is very friendly and helpful.
