Convention Center Hotel Upgrades Guest Rooms, Technology in Madison, Wis.

The Hilton Madison Monona Terrace hotel — connected to the Monona Terrace Convention Center in Madison, Wis. — has completed a multi-million dollar renovation of its 240 guest rooms and public spaces, its owner, Milwaukee-based Marcus Hotels & Resorts, announced last week.

"The Hilton Madison Monona Terrace has been the city's first choice for business and leisure travelers since it opened in 2001," said General Manager Bob Caston. "The recently completed renovation ensures we maintain our excellent reputation and provide an even higher level of service and amenities for our guests. The updated renovations are focused on providing an upscale, urban and residential feel to the rooms and public spaces, while exceeding Hilton's design specifications."

According to Marcus Hotels & Resorts, guest room renovations included new furnishings, carpeting, lighting, bedding and technology — the latter of which also was the focus of public-space improvements.

"Each guest room is now equipped with a media hub that connects a guest's laptop or mobile device to the in-room television, essentially transforming it into their own personal entertainment center," Caston said. "Our lobby area … [has] been remodeled with custom C-shaped tables for easy laptop use, featuring enhanced connectivity and built-in charging stations for convenience. Our guests can enjoy Wi-Fi from a comfortable seat in the lobby while doing business or just relaxing. We look forward to building on our position as the leading hotel in the city."
