The Madison Hotel
Ranked #1 of 5 Hotels in Morristown
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 31 October 2013

Had a very nice stay for 2 nights for a college class reunion. The Madison Hotel is classic looking and well maintained. The rooms were decorated nicely. The lobby was very nice and had a wood burning fireplace. There is also a courtyard with tables and chairs.

The included breakfast is top notch. The jellies and jams were in little glass jars rather than the standard plastic packets.

The hotel is just across a parking lot from the New Jersey Transit rail line which made it easy to get to NYC.

I'll definitely stay here again for another reunion.

The only thing that could be improved would be the addition of a clock radio. They had an ipod port (which did not fit my mp3 player), but no actual radio.

We have stayed at this hotel many times before when visiting our Aunt in New York and we have always enjoyed it. Unfortunately this time our car broke down on our way back and because it happened at the week end the new parts required took four days to arrive and be fitted. So we were forced to extend our stay on a day by day basis, and the hotel staff were only too pleased to help us in any way they could. We decided to make the most of our difficult situation and turn it into a mini vacation. Fortunately we could easily walk to the nearby train station and visit lots of interesting places without even missing our car. The hotels restaurant was wonderful and the bar food was also tasty and reasonably priced, so we ate there most evenings. The free breakfast was more than adequate and the indoor pool and hot tub were very clean and refreshing. We are discerning seniors who have traveled the world and this hotel should be graded "Five Star" because it has beautifully decorated ceilings and antique furniture yet modern bathrooms and fittings. It is just wonderful and we could not have broken down in a better place. Thanks again

Room Tip: We had a King room overlooking the quiet courtyard but have never had a problem in any room we have...

A stay at the Madison Hotel in Morristown, NJ, blends old time sophistication with the expedience of modern conveniences. The working fireplace in the lobby lights the visitor's way to a unique setting that is rarely found these days. Classical background music soothes the traveler's soul, and the accommodations are updated, clean and extremely comfortable. It is always my first choice when staying in the area!

Room Tip: Book early!

We stayed here for three nights ,since we were in the Morristown area for a show at the Mayo and a Jazz festival in town. Town is a only 10 minute drive.The hotel is elegant and has many nice touchs. From the moment we stepped into the inviting lobby we were treated by all of the friendly staff with great service. Our room was very lovely, nicely decorated. They are remodeling all of the bathrooms,ours was new with granite vanity. Comfy bed and linens. Our room overlooked the courtyard with many flowers. We ate in the courtyard for the morning continental plus breakfast. Nicest continental breakfast we ever had. Two great restaurants on site, Rod's and Red Dog tavern. With so many restaurants in town, we still came back for our meals. Nice indoor pool. Great location for train to NYC. Plenty of parking. Will be back.

Lovely older hotel. Beautiful conservatory and lobby. Loved the fire in the fireplace and courtyard in the morning. Nice indoor pool. Small but clean rooms. Great restaurant and pub on property. Exercise equipment dirty. Great breakfast.

This place is a dump. It looks like an old dormitory. Both my sink and my tub were clogged, so I stood in water over my ankles while I showered. The bed was quite nice -- good linens -- but nothing else about the room was up-to-date. The restaurant really is excellent, so stay somewhere else and eat here!

"A picture is worth a thousand words" but you also have to "see it to believe it"!! Therefore, I do recommend that people come and try us out or take a tour after eating in the restaurant you found excellent. Only then can you get a true feel for what most Trip Advisor guests saw when THEY ranked us the number one full service hotel in all of Morris County and the number one hotel overall in Morristown for three straight years. In addition, you will see that we are one of only a handful of 4.5 STAR rated full service hotels in a wide geographical area. So, I agree, ignore the pictures! Read the reviews posted above and below this one and then come see it for yourself and let me know what you think. Sorry that the tub drain ruined your stay but thrilled that you found the restaurant excellent and the bed very nice. I know our hotel style is not for everyone but glad you were able to enjoy our award winning restaurant. Thank you for your business, please feel free to enjoy Rod's and GK's Red Dog whenever you are looking for an enjoyable night out.

I was attending a reunion at a nearby college and was thrilled to see an excellent rate offered for alumni. Having stayed at the Madison a few times in the past, I knew how nice it was and with the great rate, even better! There is a huge parking lot located next to the hotel (and also the Convent Station train station ). The lobby is beautifully decorated with a sunken seating area next to the large fireplace. Check in was a breeze with a pleasant and efficient welcome. My room and bathroom were spotless and comfortable and I really like the special soaps and lotions provided. The included breakfast was excellent, especially the fresh fruit (a large dish of fresh , sweet blueberries was the highlight!). Coffee and tea was available 24 hours and delicious cookies were on the counter at check in. Internet was fast and a computer with printer was available in the lobby. I used the pool and hot tub a few times, very nice! I originally was only going to be staying here on the Friday night but since it was such a great hotel, I changed my plans to come back on Sunday. I asked Camilla at the desk if I could get the special rate for that night too and was happy to hear that it was still available. Thank you to the Madison Hotel for 2 wonderful nights, keep up the great service! Look forward to visiting the area again next year.
