The Madison would appear to be a very nice hotel, until you actually stay in a room. It can be summed up like this: Nice Lobby, Dingy Rooms. The location is convenient if you plan on taking NJT, as Convent Station sits immediately behind the hotel. We were not aware of that when we checked in. Other than the super expensive on site restaurant, there is nothing within about 2 miles of the hotel. We asked the front desk and rather than referring us to the train station, which would have cost $2.50, they referred us to a shady cab service, which cost $20 for literally a 5 minute ride...ridiculous.
I was here for 5 nights and the maid service was good. Other than that, the room sucked. According to the "history of the hotel", which will be left on your bed, they have completely renovated the rooms. This is absolutely false. The "history" of the hotel is as follows: Built in 1981 and pretty much looks the same as when it first opened, except for the pitiful shower and mold in the tub. Nasty vanity...overall a terrible bathroom. There was a hole in the plaster immediately above the bed...at first we thought it was a bug, but it just turned out to be a hole...awesome! The only good thing I can say is that room does contain a Keurig coffee maker and iHome alarm, which is nice. Maybe that's what they meant by "completely renovated".
Long story short, stay somewhere else.
Can't wait to see the form letter response by the General Manager (I believe his name is Scott), where he will beg you to "give us another chance." No thanks, Scott.
