Hyatt Place Madison, Wisconsin: Clutch for College Football

Hyatt Place Madison Hotel Review is part of the Punxsutawney TPOL Trip Report, where TPOL leaves the basement and outflank COVID, at least for now.

I searched for months for a place to stay for the Michigan v. Wisconsin game in Madison (see Formerly Camp Randall Stadium Review). Everything was sold out. Finally, a room opened at the Hyatt Place for 12k points. Considering the rate was $500/night, I booked it without hesitation.

The hotel is in downtown Madison within walking distance to the campus, bars, and, most importantly, the football stadium (see Guns & Butter: Madison Travel Guide). Across the street is a solid Indian restaurant, Maharani. a street sign with a dome on top of a building

Late Check-Out

Only stays away from Globalist, I asked if I could have 4PM checkout. The hotel said yes. Since the game started at 11AM, it was enough time to go to the game and return for what I hoped would be a victory shower.

The room was the standard Hyatt Place, perfect for a sports trip. However, this time I asked for two beds because 1) my friend was staying with me 2) because you’re sick of seeing the same photos of Hyatt Place rooms.a couch in a room a lamp and pillow in a corner of a room a tv on a shelf in a room a desk with a lamp and a phone a shelf with a bucket and a bucket on it two beds in a hotel room two beds in a room

Room Art

The art was also different from other Hyatt Places.

Roughed up from the night before (see Old School Partying in Madison), I tried to have breakfast. The eggs were bland and the sausage was no good. Glad it was free, but I would’ve paid for something better.

Many fans from both sides paid $500 a night. I would not. Once again, points made sports possible (see Final 4 Free).
