Gotta sleep. Need suggestions? Madison has a lot of great places to stay, but staying at one of our preferred hotels allows us a few comp rooms for speakers and gets them off of our couches. :-)
The Clarion Suites
(608-284-1234) is as close as you can get to Canoecopia. Please call them directly to get the best rate ($138-148) with a 2-night minimum.
