I was at the hotel for one night only, so did not have the opportunity to use all the facilities. I had both dinner and breakfast in the lounge and the food was quite good, though the service was a bit slow in the morning. My room was quite roomy and comfortable, with a bathrobe provided as well as the usual amenities. The staff was very friendly and accommodating.
There is free Wi-Fi and reasonable parking in an enclosed structure.
The only reason I gave the hotel 4 stars rather than 5 is that the restaurant was closed for remodeling; however, as noted above, the full menu was available in the lounge.

"Nice, but oddly shaped and a few things missing."
The hotel was built on a very narrow piece of land. Because of this, the hotel is not very wide, but is very long. The lobby seems huge, and there is a cafe to the right of it. There is only one long hallway on the ground floor so you have to walk past everyone in the lobby and at the reservation desk to get to the snacks in the cafe. Very embarrassing when you've just come out of the (small) pool and want to buy something to drink. No vending machines anywhere; you have to buy it through the cafe. I stood there dripping wet in the lobby waiting for someone to come out and let me purchase a soda. Also, very odd for a fairly expensive hotel to NOT have a hot tub in the pool area. The actual pool isn't the smallest one I've seen (that would be at Park Inn in Madison) but it's small; maybe due to the narrowness of the hotel.
Here's a small but odd note: I had the top floor corner suite. However, there weren't "corner windows". Lake Monona is right behind my hotel wall. Why not have a window so I can see it from my room? I could see it wonderfully from the huge window right outside my hotel room door. You could charge much more for those views. The actual view from my room was of the alley used to get to the parking ramp.
