Places to Stay

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. :-)

Update 2/16/2017
All of the hotels listed still have limited space available except for the Clarion Suites. Ask if they'll still honor the Canoecopia rates. Don't wait too much longer!

The Clarion Suites (608-284-1234) is as close as you can get to Canoecopia. Please call them directly to get the best rate ($134-144) with a 2-night minimum. (Note: Their website and national reservation phone number will not offer you the Canoecopia group rate or a 2-night option.) They fill up fast because they are connected by an indoor walkway to the Alliant Energy Center. Cut off for reservations is February 9th, but they'll be full long before then. Call now!

The Sheraton Madison Hotel (608-251-2300) is across the street from the Alliant Energy Center and a short walk to Canoecopia. It's where quite a few of our speakers and many exhibitors stay. Rooms range from $112-$142 depending on the type of room. Get your Canoecopia room rate by February 12th here.

The Holiday Inn Express and Suites Madison Central (608-709-5050) is a located on John Nolen Drive, a short walk to the Alliant Energy Center. Their room rate of $139 for Canoecopia guests includes a complimentary hot breakfast buffet. Click here to reserve a room by February 8th.

The Country Inn and Suites (608-221-0055) is conveniently located less than 4 miles from the Expo Center and right behind Rutabaga. It's a great place and they are really nice to us all year. Country Inn & Suites is offering rooms for $115 for Canoecopia guests. Call them directly by February 9th to make reservations.

The Hyatt Place - Madison Downtown (608-257-2700) is downtown just off the Square and offers a $119 rate for Canoecopia. The rate includes free airport transportation and pre-arranged shuttle-service (based on availability) to Canoecopia. Stay at Hyatt Place and you can enjoy Canoecopia by day and the heart of the city by night. You can still get the discounted room rate. Hyatt Place
