“Best Kept Secret”
Reviewed 14 February 2012

We've stayed in many properties in Madison and this was the best. The staff was friendly and the hotel itself was immaculate. Our room with it's 2 flat screens allowed us some private time. We'll be returning.

Room Tip: The location is in Sun Prairie, easily accessed.

My husband and I stayed at the Cambria Suites on a Saturday night. The hotel is a bit far outside of pretty much anything we wanted to do in Madison, but we couldn't get a hotel closer because it happened to be the night of the Mifflin Block Party.

The room was nice, clean, and comfortable. I didn't like the decor, but oh well. Our room had a microwave & mini-frig right inside the door on shelves on a table-type-thing that also held the coffee maker. Our bathroom had a nice faux tile look surround that in the end opposite the showerhead had the towel bar, I kind of prefer the surround to tiles that seem not so clean in the grout lines. There was also a vessel sink on a stone counter top. The shower curtain was decorated with dragonflies to match the throw on the end of the bed. Between the bathroom & bedroom-area, the room had a couch, chair, and a flat screen TV on the wall in a little living room area. On the wall by the desk there was a panel with hook-ups so something like a DVD player can be hooked up to the TV. The desk-area was to the left of the TV. The desk chair looked at an open shelving area into the bedroom-area. The shelving area had some odd vases on it. On the wall between the bedroom & desk, next to the chair, a long mirror was leaned against the wall. Our room had a king sized bed and another flat screen TV on the dresser. The heat/ac unit is too close to the bed for my liking because I hate air blowing in my face at night.

I don’t know that I’d stay at the Cambria again mainly because of where it is located. We also had an issue because no one at the hotel could figure out how to add my husband’s frequent flyer account number to our room. The evening desk worker had no clue how to add it and told us to check with the manager in the morning. We did speak to the manager who added it to the comments section. Of course, we never received our airline points for the transaction. After months of calling Southwest, Southwest calling Choice Hotels, and the two groups arguing about whose fault the lack of points was, my husband finally got his points six months later. My tip would be to save a print out of any offer you’re using because Choice doesn’t seem to like to give up the points. Choice claimed all along that the hotel wasn’t eligible for the promotion but it did eventually get resolved.

If you need a hotel in this area of Madison, it’s a fine place to stay. It was quiet and the rooms are nice.

We went to Madison to visit the Madison Children's Museum and a couple of other places over the 2011 Christmas holiday. We decided to stay at this Cambria because we heard good things about it. I'm glad we did because we had a great experience. The staff there bent over backwards for us! We felt like family there! The hotel itself is spotless and the design/architecture was so cool, like we were at a swanky hotel in Europe. And the price couldn't be beat. The fitness room was excellent for this type/style hotel. The pool is very small, but the jacuzzi is nice and the pool area was as spotless as the rest of the hotel.

I stayed here while I was on business a couple of times. Overall nice hotel. Room suites were nice. They have a restaurant that is more of a bar and grill. Food was ok. No free breakfast here. They had a breakfast buffet that ran around $9.95 excluding drinks. The location is on the outskirts of Madison so you are going to have to drive a few miles to get to restaurants and businesses. The hotel is located by some corporate offices.

I've stayed here several times over the course of the past two years and I always enjoy coming back here. The staff is very friendly, rooms are big and the beds are comfortable. I like it because its up dated and not drab like some hotel rooms. There is a cafe type area onsite and everything I have eaten from there has been yummy. I will definitely stay here again when the opportunity arises!

We stayed three days at the Cambria Suites. The rooms were creatively and spaciously designed and the staff was friendly and accomodating. I look forward to staying there again. Best (and worst) of all, I forgot my ipod (and toothpaste, and phone charger, duh) in our room. The day clerk got right on it and sent my beloved ipod (and toothpaste and phone charger) post haste. Thanks a ton, Cambria Suites, see you in October.
Oh and walking distance to Erin's Snug Irish pub doesn't hurt!

Cambria Suites is east of Madison and serves mostly the business traveler. The facilities are like a boutique hotel and the front desk is great. But where is the wifi?!!!!

Also, the front desk needs to have a list of restaurants nearby. How do I know where I am? Not!

Room Tip: Ask for a double queen
