Cool place, in the heart of campus. Loved the room, open and airy. Modern, yet very comfortable in a king suite. The down side was no hot water, toilet malfunctioned. If these were working I'd go back. If not I'd look elsewhere.

What a total gem in downtown Madison! Rooms are elegant and hip, staff went above and beyond any call of duty to make my daughter traveling with me feel very comfortable and welcome at a very fancy hotel. We stayed in a suite and couldn't have been happier--the kitchen was perfect for us and the layout of the suite was...

We were traveling as two couples and a baby and rented one of the 2-bedroom suites at HotelRED which was perfect for our needs (living room, two bedrooms, two bathrooms, kitchenette, and balcony). We had stayed there once before and very much enjoyed our stay on Monroe St. at a great price. Walking distance to the zoo which is free....

The staff was very professional and courteous. They provided excellent services like the shuttle and gave excellent recommendations for nearby restaurants. They even gave me walking directions on how to get to the restaurants and even offered the shuttle. My room was clean.

Our family has stayed at this hotel several times. It is clean - in our room, the lobby and restaurant. We have also found it quiet at night - despite being on a college campus. The staff are wonderful and you can't beat the location with all downtown Madison has to offer. We will definitely be back!

We stayed at the HotelRed during my daughter's graduation from UW Madison. It was perfect. We were greeted by an extensive honor bar which included snacks, stuff for cocktails, and beer. We were surprised by the dishwasher, sink, microwave and sofa, chairs, patio and great view of Camp Randall. The total experience was amazing and perfect for a special event....

We loved our balcony room right across from Camp Randall but the overuse of this facility shows in the furnishings and the sloppy cleaning job between guests. Great customer service and the resturant looked awesome.
