We enjoyed our stay at the Holiday inn Madison center. I had called several time the day of out stay, last minute reservation, lots of questions. Every time, very polite, friendly service. Our cot was in our room when we arrived, very nice. Beds were very comfortable.
Breakfast was good, and offered a variety of items, hot and cold. Would love some fruit and or yogurt.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Slider07 Great place to stay
Hotel was clean and looked well kept. Room was clean, comfortable and quiet. Shower was large and got high marks for having a shower head mounted high on the wall of the shower so you don't have to bend over to wash your hair.
The staff was great! The entire staff truly made you feel like a welcomed guest. The entire staff, from the front desk and restaurant wait staff to the shuttle drivers treated you with personal attention, they set the bar high for others in the hospitality industry.
If there was one "down side" I would say it was the size of the bed pillows, they were about the size of throw pillows. In all fairness though, I forgot to ask why they were so small or if they had standard size pillows available.
If you are planning a visit to Madison or the surrounding area I would recommend making you reservations at this hotel, I think once you stay here you will be glad you did.

Overall happy with the stay. Nice bar/restaurant, Breakfast buffet was decent with great service. Pool was a bit too high on the chlorine during our stay. Rent-a-cop security gaurd was extremely unfriendly/rude to guests(especially those with children-us). We were treated like criminals/not guests when we had the gall to not be out of the pool room at the designated time(5 min. late).

The shuttle was a delight. Basically a local taxi service and it was wonderful. I was able to play sports at a local arena and others were taken and picked up from great dining and well drink establishments.
The staff was ALWAYS courteous. And according to the little note in the room when I discovered that there was no toothpaste in my sundries kit, they had a small tube at the desk.
The breakfast bar was more than sufficient and delicious..
The pool and spa were underutilized but that gave me peace and quiet while I enjoyed them.
Thanks for the great stay.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Northwoods! Weekend Chaos!
First time at the hotel. Thought it was very nice - was excited to get the top floor thinking it would be quiet and relaxing - NOPE!!! Kids running around, loud and crazy! AND i thought a keyed floor was a quiet floor. Rooms were clean and comfortable. Did not eat at the hotel or swim (toooo many kids - looked like a teenage sport team was staying there for a tournament.) Wish they would tell you that at check-in and give you an option to not choose to stay without a penalty!!! Will try this location again but WILL call and ask prior to reservations if there are sport tournaments anywhere near hotel.!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lizzy6 Great atmosphere
Really enjoyed my stay. Great, new workout room. I only gave it 4 stars because I had bad service at the bar from the manager and the male bartender. The manager was overwhelmed with the 14 guests that were in the bar (with 2 bartenders and 1 security guard) that they closed it down 3 hrs early since they weren't "staffed for the guests". Other than that, my stay was perfect. Thank you to the front desk and restaurant staff and the lady bartender that was doing an excellent job serving us! :)

Quick easy check in. My only gripe is that the only offering for being platinum elite was a bottle of water. Clean room. Everything worked and functioned as it should.

The staff at this hotel, was the best. I had booked the wrong night and they were able to get it straightened out. The came and got us at the airport, explained about the property, gave us a beautiful room that passed the white glove test. I would stay there again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by hmmblather Not very good service
We travelled 29 hours through the snow and there was not even an offer of a bottle of water. No goodie bag, no nothing.
We were given a room with a broken toilet and were told we would be upgraded to a suite. Did not happen. We got the same room on a less convenient floor and the clerk tried to tell us it was bigger!
I can accept issues, but DO NOT LIE TO ME!
We got asked by cleaning staff a couple of times to access the room, we told them we would be out around noon, and then they did not clean it.
Room service food was mediocre at best, and the cheezy coupons to help assuage the room debacle were virtually worthless.
I would not recommend this place and will never stay again.
I expect better treatment as a member and I did not receive it. I believe that I should get extra point or some other compensation for this bad experience.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BigTim You will not find a better hotel in Madison
This place is the best. Great staff, very nice rooms, excellent restaurant. Really like the breakfast in the morning - the best buffet of all hotels I travel to in Wisconsin. They even serve breakfast burritos - yum! Plenty of fresh fruit to choose from at this buffet (not just bananas, oranges, & apples).
Great workout facilities for a hotel. Equipment is kept very clean & is in great condition.
Evening staff at restaurant are attentive & offer great advice on their dinner menu. Very helpful group.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ljbus Great service and great staff
This was one of the best hotel experiences I've ever had. The staff (food, front desk, group coordinator, etc.# went way above their job description to make me and my business group #30+ people) feel at home. They remembered who we were and greeted us all the time. The shuttle service was amazing. The group coordinator was more than accomodating. The breakfast food and staff were great. This is my first review on a hotel site, so please take my advice and stay here!

We stayed the night of 9/28/2013. I forgot my tablet as well as a jacket in the room when we checked out the next morning and did not discover these missing until late in the day and many miles up the road. I called and they immediately knew who I was, made arrangements to ship items to me the next day. Cannot say enough about the integrity of the people working there. Was a great stay aside from my mistake. Bed very comfortable, the coffee was great and loved the fact their coffee bar was right off the elevator. When we arrived for checkin we were greeted by a friendly young woman with cookies and bottles of water who then went on to help us find a deep dish pizza to be delivered to the room. We do have occasion to pass through Madison and will stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by travelingmadison Most comfotable beds in Madison!
I stayed in town for a conference at another property and decided to stay at the Holiday Inn at American Center because of my excellent experience at the hotel in the past. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable and the room is quiet and clean. My room had some minor repair issues, but nothing that made it any less comfortable. The beds are the best in Madison, I go back to this hotel pretty much just for that, the nice staff and free buffet breakfast is just the cherry on top.

We stayed at the Holiday Inn at the American Center for my sister in law's wedding. The reception was on site and was absolutely perfect! The food was delicious and the staff was exceptional! Our hotel room was stylish, comfortable and able to keep our two children sleeping during a busy weekend!

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by SteveS1954 High quality, but poor service
The place is nice and the room very comfortable. However, my room was above a wedding one floor below, so it's a good thing I wasn't trying to sleep until 1am, since the music was LOUD.
They had my rate wrong when I checked in and it took three tries to change it, and that didn't happen until I checked out.

We stayed during a friend's son's wedding and were very pleased with everything about the room, as well as the entire place. Very friendly staff, a shuttle to the reception. The room was very clean and very comfortable. We will definitely stay again.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Lori2529 probably not stay again
This Holiday Inn was hard to find off the highway. The minute we got in the door, I could not get my smart phone to work and I did not get my smart phone to work for the next 4 days (inside the hotel), so I used the business center computers which were unbelievably!!!!!!!! SLOW and one acutally shut down on me, right in the middle of a conversation :(
We wanted to take a shuttle to the Badger game, but they only shuttle within 5 miles. We were o.k. with that, so we took a cab. The next day we wanted to take the shuttle to a sports bar 3.8 miles away (much in the 5 mile radius), but no shuttle driver available. Seriously think the shuttle never left the same spot it was parked in for the 4 days that we were there.
Then there is the slamming of the doors to the rooms at ALL hours of the night. Holiday Inn should put a note on their doors that the doors close automatically, so try no to let them SLAM. OMG!!!! constant slamming of room doors. I was going to go into the hallways and scream at someone.
Needless to say, we will not be staying at THIS Holiday Inn ever again!!!!!!

I'm very upset that we were not told an additional $25 would be charged to our account. It was not on the final bill. I found it on my credit card bill. When I contacted the hotel, I was informed this was procedure and it would be refunded in 5 days. I'm still waiting. If I don't see a refund within the next 24 hours, I will be contacting my credit card company to put a stop payment on my account. Because of this, I only have negative comments.

While a bit removed from the Capitol once we got the lay of the land this was not to remote of a location. The room was quite comfortable and clean. Staff was friendly and accommodating. They printed out a map of nearest restaurants and grocery store. We would recommend this property.

I knew this was going to be a very busy weekend with so many people coming in for the Iron Man competition. The staff was great all weekend. They were very attentive during check-in, and was ready during the early morning hours before the race. The location is more suited for business travelers, but you are still only minutes away from many things in Madison.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by sews105 Room service is Poor
We put out our room service tag and filled it out for 8am breakfast.
At 8am my husband unlocked the door and opened it only to discover the room service tag was still there. Called front desk and was told the person who picks up the tag was off. So no one there other then that person could do that job. She then said well they are not busy so I guess they can get you something. I told her no thank you I have already waited a half an hour for nothing.
What an idiot. I don't even think she knew how upset I was.
