Stayed at the hotel for one night. Good location and quick to the airport. Lobby of the hotel very small and looks rather unassuming. Thankfully bedroom was much better, very spacious and nice beds. Dressing gown available, restaurant has no buffet for breakfast but I had French toast to due for . Only downside breakfast only starts at 7 (sad... More

We took a trip to DC for the Fourth of July week with my extended family (14 people !!) and stayed here. This hotel was one of my favorite things about my entire trip. The hotel was classy and clean but above all the service and hospitality was on a whole other level of excellence. The super lovely gal at... More

Madera Hotel is located in a residential area a block and a half from DuPont Circle and the Metro Station. It provides the best of two worlds - a quiet neighborhood yet close to the action of DuPont Circle with all its stores and restaurants. The hotel lobby is small and there is only one check-in/check-out register. However the staff... More

Dear nycnative1919, Thank you for your stay at the Hotel Madera - A Kimpton Hotel. You really hit the nail on the head by describing the best of both worlds. It is nestled perfectly between shops and dining, yet far enough away for a perfect restful night of sleep. I do appreciate, so much, our great staff and thank you... More

We booked this hotel on a special offer from Secret Escapes for a great rate of $175. The hotel is well located near to Du Pont Circle, in a nice area. The staff were friendly and the hotel decor is a welcome change from the usual cookie-cutter style of the big chains. Aside from the $44 charge for overnight parking,... More

We loved this hotel. Of the “boutique” variety, we chose it because of its excellent proximity to Dupont Circle, with all of its nearby restaurants and shops, and the great price we got (ca. $185/night). The staff was always cheerful, even in stressful circumstances, and the hotel offered nice perks, like good coffee in the morning, a wine-based happy hour... More

It was in a great location - a few minutes walk from the metro, around a 40 minute walk downtown. The room itself was really nice; the bed was super comfortable, the bathroom was big and had all of the amenities you would need, and the room even had a sort of quasi-yoga area to use. I stayed there with... More

I am a fan of the DC Kimpton hotels and the Madera ranks high on my favorite list. Whether for business or pleasure travel, the Madera delivers what you need. The staff is very welcoming and attentive. The rooms are very clean and good-sized. The morning coffee bar and evening wine hour just add to the experience. Special thanks to... More

I had stayed there several years ago and loved it. I'm pretty sure it's not been updated since. Small bathroom. The vanity area is separate from the toilet/shower, and has carpeted floors. The toilet is practically on top of the shower, which wasn't particularly clean. Very dusty. No fitted sheet on the bed. Cable is spotty at best. Overall an... More
