Why We Love This Hotel

  • The Edgewater is the only AAA 4-Diamond hotel in Madison
  • Sits on the banks of Lake Mendota; Lakeview rooms get great sunset views 
  • Close to shops and restaurants on State Street, the Capitol building and the University of Wisconsin-Madison
  • Tons of fall and winter events including shuttles to Badgers football games and ice-skating on the hotel's private rink 


When Elvis Presley, Sammy Davis Jr. and even the Dalai Lama visited Madison, they stayed at The Edgewater. This landmark hotel, first opened in the 1940s, does everything possible to showcase its prime spot on the banks of Lake Mendota. While the history is illustrious, The Edgewater feels quite new. A renovation and expansion in 2014 revived the original Langdon Building, added a sleek new tower and tons of other amenities.

Rooms feature walk-in rainfall showers from Kohler and refrigerators from Sub-Zero (both Wisconsin-based companies), 47-inch flat-panel TVs, refrigerators and coffee makers. Upgrade to a Terrace King or Queen room for a private balcony with city, plaza or lake views; these rooms also sit on higher floors.

Guests can start their days with coffee at The Market, have a burger and a beer after a Badgers game at Augie’s Tavern or sip cocktails while taking in an evening sunset at The Statehouse. We also understand The Icehouse, the hotel's food (and beer) hall, serves a pretty solid Wisconsin fish fry. The hotel's Edgewater Spa offers massages and signature facials; there's also an indoor relaxation pool and a salon team for customized hair, makeup and nail services.

The hotel maintains a robust events calendar throughout the year including ice-skating on the hotel's private ice rink in the winter months along with other seasonal events like an annual holiday tree lighting, breakfast with Santa, Destination New Year’s Eve and the Frozen Assets Festival.

We were in Madison to visit family. We ate dinner one night at Augies Bar. The food was good, but the service was lacking. (They were short a server). We made it work, but reduced the tip to reflect it. We liked the ice skating rink area and the unseasonably warm weather in the area during our stay!

It’s a beautiful hotel in a fantastic location, within walking distance of State Street, with great coffee shops, fabulous restaurants and the best Farmer’s Market ever. There is a large self-parking lot where we were able to leave our car even after check-out time. Great breakfast in The Statehouse. Wonderful service from everyone on the staff. Highly recommend.
