I really enjoyed my stay here! Super soft and comfy beds and pillows! I think I may actually purchase a couple of those pillows! Great bar and restaurant! Loved the Bloody Mary and cheese curds! Definitely recommend if you're traveling to Madison!

I've said it before, the Madison Concourse is a gem. The location can't be beat, the staff has always been friendly and knowledgable, and the accommodations welcoming and comforting. Over the many years we have chosen to stay at the Concourse, we've observed how the hotel constantly updates, remodels and otherwise improves the guest experience. A major lobby renovation completed...

I found the room to be clean, friendly staff. Bathroom a little tight, but beds are comfortable. We did not take advantage of the breakfast as we had plans with family to meet for breakfast, but it smelled great! We have stayed there in in the past and will stay again.

We stayed here for a long weekend. It's easy to find and get to. Parking is easy as well. Check in was quick and friendly. We stayed up in the governors club which is worth the money. Breakfast is ok but it's breakfast. The snacks are good but the bartender is fantastic. Sam is the best on Friday night. We...

The Madison Concourse Hotel and Governor's Club has become my favorite hotel. The staff is knowledgeable, friendly, and goes out of their way to make your stay enjoyable. The Governor;s Club lounge never fails to provide excellent service and great company. The restaurant, Circ, provides top quality, unique dishes with a dedicated and capable wait staff.

We've stayed at the Madison Concourse Hotel several times. They recently updated the property and it is even better than before. It is well located near the Wisconsin State Capitol and downtown business centers. The Concourse has a number of large meeting rooms and hosts many organizations doing business at the Capitol. Always a quality stay.
