Why We Love It
- The Edgewater is the only AAA 4-Diamond hotel in Madison
- A fall 2014 revamp polished up the existing buildings and brought in a whole new tower of rooms
- In winter, the hotel has its own ice skating rink on the plaza
- Sits on the banks of Lake Mendota, just a 10-minute walk to the Capitol Building
"A first-class destination hotel that is uniquely Madison" -- Madison Magazine
Rooms & Rates
When Elvis Presley, Sammy Davis Jr., and Bob Marley visited Madison, they stayed at The Edgewater. This 1940s landmark does everything possible to showcase its prime spot on the banks of Lake Mendota. While the history is illustrious, The Edgewater feels quite new. An extensive renovation and expansion completed in late 2014 brought about a sleek new tower and tons of other amenities.
Rooms have rain showerheads from Kohler and refrigerators from Sub-Zero (both Wisconsin-based companies) and there's a salon and full-service spa. The main restaurant, in a dining room of floor-to-ceiling windows that face the sunset, cooks up charcuterie, hearty steaks, and New England seafood.
A more casual fish fry with chilled beers can be had at the water-level Boathouse in the original building. Between the original tower and the new one is a plaza with an outdoor cafe that overlooks the lake, and in the winter hosts an ice skating rink. Down at the waterline are docks for mooring boats or launching off on a canoe tour.
- "An earnest, tastefully done hotel with muted rooms that don’t compete with stunning views of Lake Mendota" -- New York Times
- "Now all of Madison will have a front porch on Lake Mendota. And the rest of the world will have a destination hotel that lives up to Madison’s own opinion of itself, with a view and experience rivaled by few in the Midwest" -- Madison Magazine
