MADISON (WKOW) -- The Edgewater has become the first hotel in Madison and Dane County to earn the AAA Four Diamond rating.
The hotel originally opened in 1948, but recently reopened in 2014 after a $100 million renovation. The AAA Four Diamond designation makes it just one of nine in Wisconsin with that rating. Senior Vice President and Chief Operating Officer Amy Supple, who appeared on Wake Up Wisconsin Tuesday, says this is good news for the entire City of Madison. “The AAA Four Diamond Rating affirms that our commitment to excellence in service, coupled with our ongoing investment in the hotel and its amenities, all of which collectively support our goal of setting the standard for hospitality in the city of Madison and in the region.”
Supple says this award helps raise the profile of the city as a destination for travelers who were otherwise heading to other places. Now, she says, they're picking The Edgewater and eating at restaurants and shopping at retailers nearby.
