A bit off the beaten path, this hotel is nonetheless are good find, especially when I visited--U of W Graduation time. My room was not large, adequate though. I was impressed with the amenities--interactive television, videos on demand, music on demand, high speed internet, large workspace, not to mention a clean room. It is a bit east of the ideal downtown area (State Street) but nestled in a nice area with a Holiday Inn and large Kohl's shopping center surrounding. Getting to U of W-Madison campus from the hotel isn't hard either. The hotel is certainly not the finest in eccentric Madison, but far from the worst--there are plenty of less attractive motel selections, and this Crowne Plaza has a beautiful heated pool, restaurant, game room, business center, and workout room to accomodate its guests. It's a nice moderate, clean hotel.
Pros: Amenities, Priority Club Member, Cleanliness
Cons: Location, Pool Location
