Needed a place to stay within walking distance of the Kohl Center on a Sunday night. Graduate Madison is an awesome location to State Street and the Student Union. Maximized use of space in the room and everything was fresh, up-to-date. Very attentive staff: we left our rental car running in the lot and they tried numerous attempts to reach...

We recently spent a night at the Graduate and were VERY impressed. It is the only "boutique" hotel in Madison that I know of, and was able to provide the unique experience I was hoping for. The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly, and the lobby decor was hip but not too serious. "Hipster Plaid" seemed to be...

We stayed here a few years ago when it was the Dahlmann Campus Inn. Yes, the rooms are cozy; but I have to laugh at the reviewer who said he and his wife kept running into each other.

This small but comfortable hotel is situated across from the UW Greek Life houses and around the corner from State St, where many students eat and shop. It's a great location when visiting the kids at school or in town for a Madison event. Rooms are on the smaller side but the decor and layout is appropriate, making it feel...

Been to many high priced hotels and a few in Madison and have found that hotels in Madison are sub par. This is a newer hotel with a "college dorm room " vibe all the way to the mold in the shower. This is basic stuff and is really inexcusable for the price. I guess I am old fashioned, I...
