At The Edgewater
Welcome to The Edgewater
We invite you to get to know us and the great city we call home, Madison, Wisconsin.
Located on the shores of Lake Mendota, The Edgewater is just down the street from the Capitol Square, the heart of downtown Madison. We are within walking distance of State Street and its eclectic restaurants and shops. Best of all, we are located next to the University of Wisconsin-Madison, home of the Wisconsin Badgers.
The Edgewater offers over 200 guest rooms, a community-focused plaza and pier, several restaurants and lounges, a luxurious spa, and extraordinary facilities for meetings, private events and weddings.
Just as important as our amenities and beautiful location, however, is the quality of hospitality we offer at The Edgewater.
We are proud to greet our guests with a deep understanding of the importance of their comfort. We provide service that is anticipatory, thoughtful and natural; comprehensive without a hint of stiffness.
I look forward to greeting you personally at The Edgewater.
Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer
The Edgewater is the proud revival of a historic hotel, right on the shores of Lake Mendota, adjacent to the University of Wisconsin and steps from the state Capitol, in the heart of downtown Madison.
The restored property maintains the classic façade of the historic 1948 building, now called The Langdon Building, and a new tower, The Wisconsin Building–all with completely new interiors, several restaurants, a magnificent spa, ballrooms, and a large plaza that connects both hotel guests and the public with the beautiful waters of the lake.
The hotel has 202 guest rooms, the majority offering gorgeous lake views. The Edgewater also boasts expertly appointed Presidential suites and full studio accommodations.
The Edgewater Spa provides fitness and personal training in addition to the full-service spa offering. From customized hair, makeup and nail services to signature facials and rejuvenating massages, this tranquil environment exudes wellness on the water. Learn more about The Edgewater Spa.
Restaurants and Catering
Restaurant options range from The Statehouse for distinctive dining, to The Boathouse, a bar and restaurant in the great Wisconsin tradition of casual waterfront spots, The Icehouse for very casual dining, and The Café, for coffee and lighter fare throughout the day.
Meeting and banquet facilities range from The Grand Ballroom and Mendota Ballroom, both in the Wisconsin Building, to The Red Crown Club on top of the Langdon Building and more, offering versatility and spectacular views of Lake Mendota. Learn more about our dining options.
The Plaza lies at the heart of The Edgewater between The Langdon Building and the Wisconsin Building, almost an acre of space that is open to the public with regularly scheduled outdoor events, concerts and celebrations, converting to a skating rink in the winter months. Learn more about The Plaza.
