One City. One Contract.℠

Want to reclaim your time? Your piece of mind?

One City. One Contract. is a streamlined system that lets you focus on your meeting, not negotiating with multiple hotels. A first-of-its-kind, city-wide collaboration to make your life easier.

Big-name brands? Independent hotels? One contract seamlessly stitches all of Madison's hotels together. No repetitive negotiations at individual hotels. No tedious copying of clauses. Just simple, thoughtful, common-sense planning. The way it should be.

And the contract? We asked planners what they wanted and crafted terms with you in mind. 

Mutual respect born from conscientious collaboration. See what One City. One Contract. means for you.


All room commitments can be adjusted up to 10% without penalty at the final review date.


Force majeure, change in management, bankruptcy, renovation, and remodeling are all the same. We worked with meeting planners to create a contract with you in mind.


Hotels rarely mutually indemnify the group to start. We do. Our hotels will agree to indemnify your group without having to ask.


If the hotel reaches 95% occupancy over the contracted peak blocks, your group will not be charged. And attrition is based on lost profit, not lost revenue.


We know you don't intend to cancel your event. But we understand extreme circumstances. So we'll treat you fairly. Our cancellation fees are based on lost profit and returned if the rooms are resold at an equal or greater value.

So if you seek simplicity. And value common-sense. And want powerful tools designed specifically for you. Madison's your sort of city.
