Enjoy a warm Wisconsin welcome at our Holiday Inn Express® hotels in Madison. You'll soon be climbing the steps of the State Capitol Dome and sipping a cold Capital beer at a State Street pub.
Start your day with a refreshing morning walk beneath soaring hardwood trees at Madison's Henry Vilas Park, or spend an hour at Henry Vilas Zoo, where visits with lions, red pandas and orangutans are free year-round. Our Madison hotels are near the University of Wisconsin, the state's largest university and the center of activity in the fall, when the Badgers play Big Ten football at Camp Randall Stadium. Climb the gleaming white dome of the Wisconsin State Capitol for views of the entire city and its twin lakes, Monona and Mendota.
Each weekend, guests of our hotels in Madison join the locals browsing the Dane County Farmer's Market in Capitol Square. You'll find all the makings of a delicious picnic lunch: locally grown cherries and apples, fresh Wisconsin cheddar and crusty bakery bread. Our Madison hotels are near the eclectic, casual eateries along State Street, the city's favorite dining spot. Options range from inexpensive bratwurst and burger grills to spicy Thai diners and vegetarian restaurants specializing in organic veggies and cheese. Follow the locals' lead and order up an Old Fashioned, mixed with whiskey and bitters, or a pint of locally brewed beer at a pub.
Book our Madison hotels to experience the legendary hospitality of the Midwest and enjoy the city's inexpensive attractions. Stroll alongside the red-and-white-clad Badgers at the University of Wisconsin campus. In summertime, take a kayaking excursion onto Lake Monona or Mendota, their shores shaded by towering sugar maples. In winter, glide across the ice Henry Vilas Park outdoor rink. Or, simply relax on the sprawling lawns surrounding the Capitol building.
This is my fourth stay at the Holiday Inn Madison West while attending classes and this year's annual Epic User Group Meeting. As before, my stay was very relaxing and we were very well taken care[More] of by the entire staff during our stay.[Less]
While we have stayed at this location before, we did experience a rather strong offensive smell in the room that perhaps was located near the jacuzzi tub. We really enjoy the food and the attached[More] restaurant as well.[Less]
Front desk staff
The girl at the front desk when we checked in had the best customer service we have seen at a hotel in a very long time. She handled the customers with respect, had a sense of humor and was very good[More] at her job.[Less]
Wonderful, attentive, and friendly staff. Modern hotel with terrific amenities (pool, laundry, fitness center, free shuttle to/from downtown).[Less]
