We had a very nice stay at the Edgewater. We would especially like to thank the man at the front desk, Tyler. He was extremely helpful, friendly and knowledgeable about the area and the hotel amenities. We've been recommending the hotel to our friends, and we're excited to come back.

Liked: Really lovely hotel; excellent staff; great location.

Would not stay there again....

Liked: I liked the overall look of the facility. The location is great.
Disliked: The pillows and bed were not comfortable, too hard. No ice machine on my floor. Couldn't get non-alcoholic beverage in the facility after a certain time. Recently was renovated but certain things were already broke like the waterfall in the relaxation pool. Couldn't find my booking when I arrived, (Was told by Edgewater staff that the site is not integrated with their booking system).

Verified Hotel Guest Tue, 18 February 2020

Liked: The lake adjacent location is nice. However, as other reviews pointed out, the "lake view" term is used generously. You had to stand in the corner of the juliet balcony to even see the lake.
Disliked: I have no idea how this is rated 4.5 stars. The room itself felt dated and unimpressive. The $18 "resort fee" (which covers internet, spa access, fitness center, etc) is a joke. Cell service is bad in the hotel, because it's all brick. Super disappointing

Winter Getaway

Liked: The Edgewater is a hidden gem! Just off the beaten path but close enough to feel part of the action in Madison. The outdoor ice skating pond is brilliantly situated between the two buildings adding to the beauty and winter ambiance that is the Edgewater.
Disliked: The pullout coach bed was horrible but that?s ok, everything else made up for it!
