It had been several years since we last stayed at Madera, and it lived up to our expectations. The staff was exceptionally accommodating, even with our two dogs, and provided us everything we needed for a comfortable stay. The doggie bed and water/food bowls were immediately available and clean, and of course we loved the complimentary cocktails!

I picked this hotel due to its reasonable price and location. Plus the reviews on Trip Advisory were good. It lived up to its reputation. The staff could not have been more friendly or helpful. Also the room allowed me to keep the fan on all of the time so I had good white noise, even though things were very... More

The staff at Madera far exceeded my normal expectations for friendliness and service expected at any hotel. I have stayed at many. From the moment we pulled up to the moment we pulled away the staff were as accommodating and helpful as possible.

Stayed here for business. A little gem! Front desk extremely helpful. Room service menu is small, but perfect for this weary traveler. Bed was ultra comfortable and the bathroom had all the right amenities! Having breakfast and they have 3 newspapers. Perfect if you are working in the neighborhood!

At check in my 10 year old asked about snow and was disappointed it was not in the forecast. Later that day a goldfish named snowflake was delivered to accompany us the rest of our stay. Also snow covered donuts and a promise if it did start snowing they would call the room. My son was very happy. Rooms were... More

We only stay at Madera when in DC, and with Firefly as your in-house food service, it's hard to leave the building. The staff rocks, the food rules, and they take care of your smallest needs. The wine hour is a nice touch.

If you like boutique hotels, this is one of the best at which I have stayed. The service here is better than at most five star hotels; everyone without exception was friendly and helpful. The Firefly restaurant, which is integrated into the hotel, has superb food and the waitstaff are genuinely interested in making sure your are happy. On Friday... More

One of the best is right dannykent, as far as boutique hotels go we definitely have the rest beat. Just has you mentioned our newly renovated rooms and building make our large bedrooms perfect. On the other hand the restrooms are pretty small, but at least not too much time is spent in there. Now Firefly is also the "it"... More

I stayed two night during a business trip. I was very impressed by the quality of customer service. I arrived late because of my flight connections. While on the shuttle to the hotel I placed an order for dinner at the restaurant. I arrived to the hotel more than 30 minutes after the restaurant closed. Check in took 2 minutes... More
