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.

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.


Not sure who wants to go for a dip, but a pool is available.


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.

Room Art

The art was also different from other Hyatt Places.

Behold, Madison!


The bathroom was not.


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).
