Expensive breakfast

We assumed the breakfast buffet was complimentary, but were surprised to receive a bill for almost $30 for two people.

The hotel staff and hotel provided a sweet respite

Pros: Free breakfast, Free Internet
The hotel staff and hotel provided a sweet respite, which includes the awesome cookies upon check in. Everyone on the staff was very pleasant and the hotel is very comfortable and clean. The location was great for us, checking out Farmers Market on Capitol Square, State Street and University of Wisconsin-Madison. Enjoyed downtown Madison and would stay at the DoubleTree again...no question. We had free breakfast on the breakfast buffet...awesome selection and great food.

Nice fit for visiting UW

Stayed here with 3 16 year-olds looking at the University (and attending a concert). The staff were very friendly and accomodating. The location was great. 5 minute walk to the concert. Staff gave a good recommendation about who to order pizza from. The only downside was that the roll-away bed was a little shabby and uncomfortable. Liked it overall. There were some rowdy people at the hotel, but we weren't bothered by that.

Great Location

The hotel is within walking distance of the University campus, so we could enjoy live music at the Memorial Union and easily walk to local shops. Appreciated the breakfast and the accomodating staff.

Excellant location for capital activities. Spotless and sparkling.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet, Quiet, close to capital
We stayed here three days during the marches at the Capital. It was warm, friendly, sparkling clean and a beautiful room. We ate in the restaurant several times and were pleased with the service and food. The homemade soups were delicious. The staff said they were striving for a 10 for service and I'd say they did that and more. We have recomended this place to others and will stay here again.

The Madison Double Tree is Classic Top Notch, but the Staff is Superior!

Pros: Free breakfast, Close restaurants, perfect location
The rooms were large, clean, and well-stocked as every great hotel room should be. It was my first time in Madison, and I had no idea where to go and what to see. I went to the lobby restaurant to grab a drink at the pub and the staff gave me the entire story on Madison - places I should go, things I need to see. Great service! An awesome hotel for an awesome city!

A very comfortable and affordable hotel in downtown Madison.

Pros: Close restaurants
The Doubletree provides a very comfortable, welcoming experience. The facility and rooms are very clean, and the staff is helpful. The location is ideal - right in the heart of Madison, a few blocks from State Street. I would highly recommend this to families or business travelers.
