My wife and I stayed at the Edgewater for a weekend to celebrate our anniversary. The room was comfy. The staff was very friendly and helpful. The building (s) itself was beautiful with a layout that took most of my stay to understand. I loved the tunnel connecting the two buildings. We thought the courtyard overlooking the lake was fabulous....

We went for a one night stop in a road trip and had no expectations; but we found The Edgewater to be a true jewel. The architecture, the spacious rooms, the truly breathtaking views and the magical sunset over the Mendota lake made it an unforgettable experience, not to mention Madison itself, what a beautiful city.

I would have given this place an Excellent Rating but I did have the opportunity to eat the food. The accommodations were lovely, historic and comfortable. I would definitely stay at this place again given the chance. Nice place.

The Edgewater is a beautiful hotel with stunning views of Lake Mendota. The staff was very helpful and pleasant. Our room (we stayed in the Wisconsin building) had an absolutely gorgeous view of the lake. The location, near campus as well as all the great restaurants by the capital, was terrific

We loved the hotel but were wondering why they skimped on the little things.....poor internet service, only one q tip (got more from the spa), substandard coffee offered with paper cups (where are the mugs), no tea offering, complimentary nail file was only 2' long. And a bigger thing, the Skybar is not open to the public :(

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
As Madison's first and only AAA Four Diamond property, The Edgewater is the proud revival of an historic hotel, right on the shores of Lake Mendota, adjacent to the University of Wisconsin and steps from the state Capitol, in the heart of downtown Madison. The restored property maintains the classic facade of its predecessor, now called The Langdon Building, and a new tower, The Wisconsin Building, all with completely new interiors, several restaurants, a magnificent spa, ballrooms, and a large plaza that connects both hotel guests and the public with the beautiful waters of the lake. The hotel has 202 guest rooms, the majority offering gorgeous lake views, including presidential suites and studios with kitchenettes. The Edgewater Spa provides fitness and personal training overlooking Lake Mendota, as well as full service, customized hair, makeup, nail services and relaxing massage. Restaurant options range from The Statehouse for distinctive dining, to The Boathouse, a bar and restaurant in the great Wisconsin tradition of casual waterfront spots, The Icehouse for very casual dining, and The Cafe, for coffee and lighter fare throughout the day. Meeting and banquet facilities range from The Grand Ballroom and Mendota Ballroom, both in the Wisconsin Building, to The Red Crown Club on top of the Langdon Building, offering versatility and spectacular views of Lake Mendota. The Plaza lies at the heart of The Edgewater between The Langdon Building and the Wisconsin Building, almost an acre, open to the public with regularly scheduled outdoor events, concerts and celebrations, converting in winter to a skating rink. ... more   less
