We stayed in a lakefront king room for 1 night. The room was exceptionally clean, spacious, and beautiful as shown in the pictures. The views of the lake and the skating rink from the balcony were amazing. This was one of the best hotels we have stayed. Would stay again and highly recommend this hotel to anyone visiting Madison.
