A Centrally Located Meeting Space

Located on the shore of Lake Mendota in the heart of Downtown Madison, we’re within walking distance of the city’s most popular attractions – State Street, UW-Madison campus, The Capitol Square and so much more. Your meeting attendees will love being able to get out and explore all that our city has to offer.

The Edgewater today, after an expansion and renovation in 2014. The original tower, on the right, retains its Art Moderne style features, while newer elements, such as the Langdon Tower, left, blend with other nearby architecture.

Of course, The Edgewater is a Madison attraction in its own right, and our historic property, with its sweeping views of the lake, exciting events, amazing restaurants, gorgeous spa and elegant rooms means that your guests can find everything they need without ever leaving the hotel.
