We could not be happier with our wedding experience at The Madison Concourse Hotel. Everyone we worked with throughout the planning process (namely, Chastity, the wedding coordinator) was friendly, professional, accommodating, and creative. Even though our wedding was large (300+) the hotel & crew made the planning process incredibly easy and the reception feel intimate & special. Weeks later we continue to get compliments from guests on the delicious food. We are a same-sex couple and felt comfortable, supported, and validated by the hotel and staff. Thanks!! -Mary and TanyaSent on 05/23/2018

I had my wedding at the Concourse at the end of August, and it was fabulous. Chastity is awesome at answering any questions, and helping you plan our the space. Staff was beyond helpful the day of the wedding. Many guests complimented us on the food, which was plated. We also dropped our decorations off on Friday night before the wedding, and Chastity and the team set it all up for us- it looked better than we could have imaged. I can not recommend the Concourse enough for an ideal Madison based wedding. All of our guests loved the venue, and loved being so close to the capitol. Especially for out of town guests, the location can't be beat!Sent on 09/05/2019

We had our rehearsal dinner here, and it was a very good experience. Chastity was great to work with, our buffet dinner was really tasty (multiple guests complimented the food), and everyone had a good time. Chastity was also very accommodating of guests with specific dietary needs and my last-minute requests!Sent on 06/09/2018

The Concourse Hotel & Governor's Club is a fantastic location for your wedding reception! All my bride's love all the unique locations within this hotel for portraits and it's so close to the Capital and State Street for an easy walk!
I've been working quite a bit with them and I got to say that I love their food!
We always love the opportunity to work with the staff at The Madison Concourse Hotel. The coordinators have been nothing short of accommodating each and every time we are out there. The space itself is great for a wedding reception...large enough to fit everything (photo booth, DJ, bar, dance floor) in the same room with plenty of space to walk around and lounge about...although we'd rather have you dancing! It's also a short hop, skip, and a jump to State Street and a multitude of bars to hit up after the official celebration has come to a close. Looking for a nice downtown Madison venue?
