Hipmunk City Love: The Best Hotels Near Camp Randall Stadium

One of the most thriving university cities in the United States, Madison, Wisconsin is a city which goes nuts over college football, and as game day approaches hotels tend to sell out fast, especially those near Camp Randall Stadium. Room shares pop up throughout the city, the streets turn into a sea of red and white, and hotel rates can almost triple for those who try to make last-minute plans.

But cheap hotel deals in Madison are definitely possible, and you can easily snag these deals at a property within walking distance to the game if you book well enough in advance.

The following hotels are some of the closest to Camp Randall Stadium. Book early and start here if you’re looking for something within walking distance to a football game.

From Camp Randall Stadium, Hotel Red is a short 0.2km stroll, and as such is a fantastic choice of accommodation if you’re traveling to Madison to take in a Saturday game. A stylish, family friendly boutique hotel, there is a high-energy atmosphere here regularly, and this peaks on weekends when guests are amped for the game.

An art deco hotel with bold interior design, this is one of the few pet friendly properties in the city, and is unique in that all rooms feature a kitchenette. It is also a stone’s throw away from Madison’s urban center — a hub of galleries, restaurants, and shops.

DoubleTree by Hilton Madison

Located 1.4km from the Camp Randall Stadium, DoubleTree by Hilton Madison offers guests a bit of everything. A nonsmoking hotel with free Wi-Fi and a 42-inch TV, each room also has a microwave, fridge, and coffee/tea maker.

Drive into Madison, but then walk to the game — self parking at the hotel is free. There is a 24-hour fitness center if you didn’t get enough exercise on the 1.4km walk to Camp Randall, and an indoor pool for morning laps the next day.

Graduate Madison

One of the most central boutique hotels in Madison, a room at Graduate Madison will put you 1.5km from Camp Randall Stadium, also within very close walking distance to the city’s best restaurants, nightlife, shopping, and downtown attractions.

Recently re-branded from Dahlmann Campus Inn and Chancellors Club, Graduate Madison is a cozy collegiate themed hotel, very elegant and refined, with beautiful furnishings like a marble lobby, mahogany fireplaces, classic color schemes, and plush amenities. Do note that the hotel shares a Wi-Fi network with the university, so Internet access is often slow.

Hampton Inn & Suites Madison/Downtown

A little further out, Hampton Inn & Suites Madison/Downtown sits 1.6km from Camp Randall, and is also close to the Wisconsin State Capitol and Madison Museum of Contemporary Art.

Amenities like complimentary wireless Internet in public areas, 24-hour business center, 24-hour fitness center, and complimentary breakfast every morning make this a fantastic value for the money. Guest parking is available at a price, and other amenities include help with tours and ticketing, as well as coffee and tea served in the lobby.
