HotelRED :: A Madison Boutique Hotel Getaway {Giveaway!}

Could you do for a bit of a break this Valentine’s Day? The chance to step away from your typical routine and recharge, either for a romantic getaway with your sweetie or perhaps a solo trip involving sleep, Netflix and room service….sounding pretty good?

HotelRED is here to make your Valentine’s dreams come true! 

We had the opportunity to chat with Jason Ilstrup, GM of the HotelRED, about what makes this Madison hotel a unique destination that is both chic and so very “Wisconsin.” 


HotelRED really seeks to capture the heart of our city in so many ways. The hotel is owned by a family with Madison roots and our goal is to immerse our guests in the community as soon as they walk in the door. The first thing you see is the front desk with a huge window with a beautiful view of the Fieldhouse, Camp Randall and the surrounding neighborhood. We hire local, support local, and even treat our guests to local chocolates made 2 blocks away specifically for HotelRED! In the summer, our guests can enjoy paddle-boating or kayaking on Lake Wingra and no matter what time of year, we are in a perfect location to enjoy shopping and to visit the iconic Mickey’s Dairy Bar, a legendary dive joint among Badger fans!

HotelRED is located right off the University of Wisconsin campus in Madison, across the street from Camp Randall Stadium, and close to the Henry Vilas Zoo, Edgewood College and the UW Arboretum. Plus, it’s right on Monroe Street — one of our capital city’s coolest shopping districts, filled with  locally-owned specialty shops.

For Milwaukee parents, this is the perfect hotel for a quick staycation without the kids — made even better if you can snag some tickets to a Badger game! It’s an easy drive from Milwaukee, but it gets you far enough away from home that you’re able to unplug. HotelRED is the first true stylish boutique hotel in Madison and we know you’ll love it!

During your stay at HotelRED, be sure to enjoy Happy Hour and a meal at The Wise, the bistro restaurant located right inside the hotel. The Wise features a bar with a fun mix of classic cocktails and craft beers and is known for serving food that captures Wisconsin traditions, but with a twist. I’m particularly intrigued by the Schnitzel & Spaetzel and the cheese curds made with cheese from our friends at Sassy Cow Creamery. 

For Valentine’s Day, we invite you to check out this chic hotel to invest in your relationship, or maybe to make self-care a priority and give yourself a break. Either way, we would love to invite you to HotelRED!
