Tips For The Innovative Traveler

Tips For The Innovative Traveler
October 27, 2017

HotelRED is the perfect place for the innovative traveler- the traveler on the road for business or pleasure who wants a truly unique experience. While many people find traveling to be a stressful experience, there are many ways to relax and truly enjoy your stay in the heart of Madison.

How To Get Around

The best way to get around the city, whether you’re going to a meeting, the airport, or a great Madison attraction, is the hotel shuttle. Inform the front desk you’re ready to head out and a shuttle driver will take you where you need to go (within a 3-mile radius.) Otherwise, Uber, Lyft, or Union Cab of Madison are inexpensive, convenient options. Looking for a greener way to get around the city? There are bike trails galore that are not only expansive, but scenic.



After a long day of meetings after meetings (or a long day of exploring the city), you have many options to unwind- in your room, in HotelRED’s on-site bar and restaurant, The Wise, and in the local Regent Street/Monroe Street area. Each room offers an honor bar with local craft beer and delicious snacks to curb your appetite. Each room also comes equipped with a cocktail-recipe book, a shaker, and shot glass so you can mix up your own drinks. Otherwise, guests can head to The Wise for The Fiver Happy Hour, which includes $5 cocktails, beer, wine, and appetizers. Other area bars/restaurants that are great for unwinding after a long work day are Lucky’s 1313 Brew Pub, Brasserie V, and The Laurel Tavern.

Looking for fun things do or popular attractions in Madison? The front desk is a friendly, knowledgeable resource for all things Madison. They can recommend restaurants, events, arts and culture, and more. Otherwise, The Isthmus, Visit Madison, or the City of Madison calendar are online resources that can lead you in the right direction.

Keep Your Health In Mind

Perhaps the most important thing to keep in mind while traveling is your health! You’ve established a healthy routine at home, just make sure you maintain those habits while you’re away. Be sure to make time to hit up the fitness center, stay hydrated, make healthy food choices, and prioritize sleep.
