We loved having our wedding here. It is the best value in the area after pricing multiple venues- we paid ~$750 for the Montpelier Ballroom for 3 hours. It fit our 70 guest perfectly and was already so nicely decorated we didn't have to add a lot to make it the perfect space. Our guests loved staying in the hotel and they offered us a discount to rent the wedding suites which have an amazing view of the city. Emily and Mia were great a communication for any of our needs. Jorge was a big help in coordinating our stuff, cars and guests. Don't think twice about going to check this place out for your next event!Sent on 01/14/2020

We chose the Loews Madison as our hotel for out of town guests. We initially reached out to quite a few hotels, and the Loews Madison was one of the few hotels to actually respond. Not only did they respond quickly, they gave us the best rate around.Sent on 06/18/2015
Leading up to the event, Diana was great to work with. She was kind, professional, and responsive. We went over our contracted room number, and they accommodated a few additional rooms at the contract price. What a huge relief! On the weekend of the wedding, the staff and the concierge, Milan, went out of their way to make us and our guests comfortable. The staff handed out gift bags to each of our guests as they checked in -- at no additional charge! The concierge, Milan, was gracious in helping us coordinate our transportation on the wedding day. We also had a breakfast the day after the wedding in one of the event spaces. The food was good and the staff was great -- they even brought me a plate of fresh fruit. The whole weekend they went above and beyond.
Our guests appreciated the central location of the hotel, and the rooms were beautiful (yes, some reviews will say they are on the small side or that the street side is noisy, but for the center of the city it wasn't bad at all!) We booked a certain number of rooms, so we got an upgraded suite, which was modern and spacious. The staff even left us a card and treats when we returned to our room on the night of our wedding!
We had an absolutely wonderful experience and would highly recommend the Loews Madison.

Our daughter's wedding was May 23, 2015. Loews handled the rehearsal dinner, wedding reception and wedding breakfast the following morning. If I could give them more stars I would. It was spectacular! Many of our guests said it was the best wedding they'd ever attended. Jessica Malone helped us every step of the way, including being there at the actual reception to make sure everything went as planned, and that all of the gifts, envelopes and mementos made their way safely back to the bridal suite. She even soothed over a few bridal and MOB meltdowns along the way in the months and weeks leading up. The event space was lovely, the rooms gorgeous. The staff went well out of their way to ensure everything went smoothly and all guests were made comfortable. And if the quality of the food is important to you, look no further...the food at each of our three events was superb! We had about 180 guests at the reception, and every dish looked and tasted as if the head chef had personally created each one. I just can't say enough good things about the facility, the service and the people of the Loews Madison Hotel. I wish we could do it all again!!Sent on 09/03/2015
