Rates shown are nightly rates before taxes and do not necessarily reflect all Madison, WI discounts available. The chart reflects the cheapest Madison hotel for each day and each star rating category.

The second largest city in Wisconsin after Milwaukee, Madison consistently ranks at one of America's best places to live. After the Wisconsin Territory was established in 1836, a permanent capital was required, and so the idea for Madison, in honor of President James Madison, was put forward. The capitol's cornerstone was laid the following year, and Madison itself was incorporated as a village in 1846 with a population of just over 600. The city served as a major center for the Union Army during the Civil War, and has grown to form the central core of the Madison metro area.

Today, the city's downtown thoroughfare, State Street, is linked to the University of Wisconsin campus and features numerous espresso cafes, restaurants, and shops. The city is also noted for its incredible cuisine and craft beer, making it a great vacation destination. Whatever your reasons for visiting Madison, it's important to book the right hotel that allows you to experience everything this wonderful city has to offer.

Best Time to Visit Madison, WI

Although you can find something to do in Madison year-round, you may want to avoid the winter months if you're not too fond of snow. Temperatures drop dramatically and bring wintry weather, making Wisconsin suitable for ice-fishing and snowmobiling. If you don't mind the frigid temperatures and snow showers, however, you can save quite a bit of cash on your hotel rates during this season. Several of Madison's parks feature groomed trails for cross-country and skate-style skiing. You can also go snowshoeing throughout the City of Madison Parks system, including on the trails at the Yahara Hills Golf Course. And there are always the indoor attractions to enjoy, which won't be experiencing the tourist rush.

While the weather can remain chilly in early spring, Madison starts to come alive from March to May. This is the perfect time to take advantage of reduced hotel rates, fewer crowds, and a brisk but beautiful climate that makes sightseeing more enjoyable. Although you'll need to pack a few layers, spring in Madison is a memorable experience. Visit the UW Arboretum to enjoy the budding flora or hit the bike trails, or take a jog alongside Lake Mendota.

Summer is naturally Madison's peak tourist season, which results in hiked room rates and longer lines at major attractions. Due to the city's surrounding marshlands, summers can also be quite humid, drawing out the mosquitos. As long as you bring your bug spray, Madison is never more alive than during the summer months. You'll have access to numerous outdoor festivals, including the local favorite, Concert on the Square. It's also a great time to enjoy an outdoor picnic, savor farm-to-table cuisine, and participate in lake activities.

If you're a sports fan, fall is a great time to visit Madison. The city is buzzing with football-related enthusiasm, so be sure to catch a UW Badgers' game at Camp Randall Stadium. Even if you're not interested in sports, autumn provides pleasant weather, falling hotel rates, and thinning crowds, making it one of the best times of the year to visit the capital city.

"Beautiful city any time of year!"
Score 5.0 / 5

Madison is a beautiful city. The Capital is always worth a visit. Vilas Park is fun and lovely. There are beaches to enjoy in the summer, fall foliage is gorgeous, there is ice skating in the winter and wildflowers everywhere in Spring. I love wandering State Street to see the stores and people watch.
