We really enjoyed our 2 night stay at The Graduate on Langdon St in Madison. They hit a home run with the "come re-live your fun college days" theme. Perfectly located a block from the Memorial Union and just steps away from State St. Parking is a hassle on/near campus so it was nice to park the car & then...

Updated, contemporary decor, decently sized rooms with tasteful, modern furniture. Free shuttles to Epic a plus, and all hotel staff were exceedingly nice. Shuttles reliable and on-time. I unfortunately had a 6th floor room and heard chairs moving and whistling/shouting every night from the 7th floor bar. Additionally there's noise coming from the street corners as this hotel is right...

Needed a place to stay within walking distance of the Kohl Center on a Sunday night. Graduate Madison is an awesome location to State Street and the Student Union. Maximized use of space in the room and everything was fresh, up-to-date. Very attentive staff: we left our rental car running in the lot and they tried numerous attempts to reach...

We recently spent a night at the Graduate and were VERY impressed. It is the only "boutique" hotel in Madison that I know of, and was able to provide the unique experience I was hoping for. The front desk staff was very helpful and friendly, and the lobby decor was hip but not too serious. "Hipster Plaid" seemed to be...

We stayed here a few years ago when it was the Dahlmann Campus Inn. Yes, the rooms are cozy; but I have to laugh at the reviewer who said he and his wife kept running into each other.

This small but comfortable hotel is situated across from the UW Greek Life houses and around the corner from State St, where many students eat and shop.
