Mad-for-Plaid Digs

Welcome to Graduate Madison – where your intellectual curiosity meets your favorite place to stay.

Graduate Madison is just a block from campus, ideally set alongside Lake Mendota on historic Langdon Street, and around the way from Memorial Union Terrace. Our Madison hotel is nestled between the bustling shops and stops on State Street and majestic Capitol Square – the perfect spot for a Wisconsin campus visit, company meet up or place to pop by for a fresh pressed juice, signature brew or inspired rooftop view.

Come on over to our Mad-for-plaid digs with a copy of The Badger Herald and enjoy a sweet or treat at Portage Pi, our coffee & pie bar.

So, whether you’re dropping in for a show at the Overture Center, in town for a meeting, or gearing up to “Jump Around” at Camp Randall, we’re here to make it memorable.

Our rooms are ready for a night like you’ve never had before, where little moments of surprise and discovery will meet you down every corridor and around each corner. This is Graduate – get ready to be inspired.

The Graduate Madison Is A Pet Friendly Hotel In Wisconsin

Pet Friendly

We love furry friends probably a little more than the next guy and would never dare ask you leave them at home during your travels. In fact, when you bring your four-legged companion along for the ride, they stay for free and will enjoy a pup perk* compliments of our pals at BarkBox.

 *We’ll outfit your room with a bowl and blanket for your pup to enjoy during their stay. If you wish to take either item home with you, they are available for purchase through our front desk. BarkBoxes can also be added to your reservation for a small fee or purchased upon arrival at the front desk.

View Of The Capital From Graduate Madison Hotel

Shuttle Service

We always think a town is best explored on foot, but if your destination is a little further than you’d prefer to hoof it, we’re happy to give you a lift in our complimentary shuttle*.

*Shuttle service is based on availability.
