Everything was over the top, view, room, service, food, and it was graduation week end for the University of Wisconsin. The Director of Operations Ansie Lwali, was helping all over the place, did not miss a beat. If you ever want to treat yourself like royalty this is the perfect place to run away to.

A cold and rainy weekend in Madison was saved by a stay at the Edgewater. Sincere and courteous service from the front door to the room and back. I had a Golden Retriever with me and he too enjoyed being pampered. Our "pet" room was on the first floor, just yards away from the water and it was very convenient...

This is our second stay at The Edgewater - and again we were very happy with the experience. Friendly staff; clean, comfortable, well designed rooms, great bathroom.

Beautiful location, large and well-appointed rooms. Used the spa- great, Augie's Tavern- great! Staff are friendly and helpful. It's my new place to stay when in Madison. I'm looking forward to a return trip with the higher end room selection, but my lakeview king is quite good. Very much worth the cost.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As Madison's first and only AAA Four Diamond property, The Edgewater is the proud revival of an historic hotel, right on the shores of Lake Mendota, adjacent to the University of Wisconsin and steps from the state Capitol, in the heart of downtown Madison. The restored property maintains the classic facade of its predecessor, now called The Langdon Building, and a new tower, The Wisconsin Building, all with completely new interiors, several restaurants, a magnificent spa, ballrooms, and a large plaza that connects both hotel guests and the public with the beautiful waters of the lake. The hotel has 202 guest rooms, the majority offering gorgeous lake views, including presidential suites and studios with kitchenettes. The Edgewater Spa provides fitness and personal training overlooking Lake Mendota, as well as full service, customized hair, makeup, nail services and relaxing massage. Restaurant options range from The Statehouse for distinctive dining, to The Boathouse, a bar and restaurant in the great Wisconsin tradition of casual waterfront spots, The Icehouse for very casual dining, and The Cafe, for coffee and lighter fare throughout the day. Meeting and banquet facilities range from The Grand Ballroom and Mendota Ballroom, both in the Wisconsin Building, to The Red Crown Club on top of the Langdon Building, offering versatility and spectacular views of Lake Mendota. The Plaza lies at the heart of The Edgewater between The Langdon Building and the Wisconsin Building, almost an acre, open to the public with regularly scheduled outdoor events, concerts and celebrations, converting in winter to a skating rink. ... more   less
