I had the pleasure of staying on two separate occasions within the last few months. The rooms are fabulous and the beds are so comfortable! When I returned the second time, I purchased two pillows before leaving and would love to get the same mattress. We had dinner in the bar when we arrived as the restaurant was closed; the...

We love staying at the Concourse. This is the only hotel that we stay at when we visit Madison. When we arrived the parking lot was full, but not a problem at all, they offered Valet parking. The staff is all so friendly and very professional. The room was wonderful with everything that we needed and the beds are so...

This hotel benefits from not being part of a chain. You feel the personal touch everywhere. Service is phenomenal, rooms are great, and everyone is so friendly. The restaurant serves great food and the location cannot be beaten.

It was my first time visiting Madison and I'm really glad I chose this place to stay. I booked it through Priceline and I don't know how much of a discount it was but the price I paid seemed extremely reasonable. The lobby was beautiful and the staff was very friendly leaving a good first impression. Our room had a...

We have stayed here numerous times, and have always had great service from the front desk to the bartender at the governors lounge. Great location to walk to the Overture Center. Rooms are impeccable.

I was always a fan of the hotel's nostalgic decor, but it was time for a redo. I was a bit shocked with the transformation (which I wasn't expecting), but it is fitting for the time. As always, it has the best location for wandering State Street and the Capitol Square. The rooms are clean and classic. Beds were comfortable....

I have been staying at The Concourse for ten years now. Over the years, I have come to realize that staying in the Governor's level is worth the money. The food, drink and service in the Govenor's Club is well worth the extra money. The rooms are clear, comfortable and up to date. The first floor remodel is gorgeous. For...
