“The Hilton Madison Monona Terrace has been the city’s first choice for business and leisure travelers since it opened in 2001. The recently completed renovation ensures we maintain our excellent reputation and provide an even higher level of service and amenities for our guests. The updated renovations are focused on providing an upscale, urban and residential feel to the rooms and public spaces, while exceeding Hilton’s design specifications,” said Bob Caston, general manager.

Guestroom renovations include a new layout with a sleek, clean look. New furnishings include mahogany dressers and desks featuring media hub connectivity, new carpeting and in-room guest safes. All guest rooms have been upgraded with decorative lighting, refrigerators and the Hilton Serenity Bed Collection for ultimate relaxation and comfort.

Additional renovations include converting eight standard guest rooms to Jr. Deluxe Lakeview Suites with privacy walls to create a separate seating and sleeping area. The hotel’s three Presidential Suites have also been completely remodeled and updated with the latest technology and guest comforts.

Caston said the renovations also included expanding the hotel’s technology infrastructure to provide convenient accessibility around-the-clock. “Each guestroom is now equipped with a media hub that connects a guest’s laptop or mobile device to the in-room television, essentially transforming it into their own personal entertainment center. Our lobby area and Jr. Deluxe Lakeview Suites have been remodeled with custom C-shaped tables for easy laptop use, featuring enhanced connectivity and built-in charging stations for convenience. Our guests can enjoy Wi-Fi from a comfortable seat in the lobby while doing business or just relaxing. We look forward to building on our position as the leading hotel in the city.”

The Hilton Madison is located on the shimmering shores of Lake Monona, one block from the state capitol building and in the heart of Madison’s dining, shopping, entertainment, art and theatre districts. The property is connected to the Monona Terrace Convention Center, making it the premier location for business meetings and social gatherings.

Located in the Hilton Madison, the award-winning Capitol ChopHouse is Madison’s power lunch spot and features great steaks and seafood. The menu offers organic and natural foods with local ingredients purchased from farmers’ markets throughout the area.
