The Edgewater is conveniently located in downtown Madison, Wisconsin, tucked away on the quiet shores of Lake Mendota. This luxury hotel’s roots date back to the 1940s, but a recent renovation has transformed the property and brought it a modern and elegant edge. Located just three blocks from the state Capitol and the University of Wisconsin-Madison, a host of shopping, dining and entertainment options are available within walking distance. The Edgewater also offers three restaurants, a café, spa and salon services, and a fitness center.
