Great courteous staff, easy parking, nice spaces in the rooms, contemporary decor. We love it and frequently stay at RED when visiting our family for various events. Love the proximity to UW. Handy restaurant and bar.

DO TO THE LENGTH OF THIS REVIEW, I HAVE SEPARATED IT INTO SECTIONS: GENERAL, ROOM, STAFF, AMENITIES, MAINTENANCE, CONCLUSION GENERAL I can’t fathom how this hotel came together. They were clearly aimed at some sort of industrial chic but the execution in the fixtures and furnishings was done with a cheapness that is only occasionally interrupted with a quality piece....

Great boutique hotel, great location. We were able to bring our dog so it was such a easy stay. Room was very large with a great balcony facing Camp Randell. Really nice restaurant for breakfast the next morning.

I had no idea a place like this could exist in Wisconsin... The industrial theme (concrete floors, exposed ducts, modern furniture, etc.) made us feel like we were in a loft in Uptown Minneapolis... The ambiance at the hotel restaurant (The Wise) was unbelievable, and the food was outstanding. All in all, this place was awesome.

We stayed at HotelRED in the past and have always enjoyed the property. This time we were not disappointed.

Cool place, in the heart of campus. Loved the room, open and airy. Modern, yet very comfortable in a king suite. The down side was no hot water, toilet malfunctioned. If these were working I'd go back. If not I'd look elsewhere.
