Enjoyed the staff here during our stay. They were kind,courteous and always helpful. Rooms were clean and nice. Not too far from The Mall area and other sights. Still walkable if you like to walk. Starbucks just around the corner for your morning fix and restaurant in hotel lobby area if you wish to stay in.

Location near Dupont Circle is good. Hotel itself is average. Some staff are good, others not particularly interested in helping. Rooms were clean enough, though housekeeping were not that thorough. Litle or no help with luggage either

The Hotel Madera is a wonderful hotel on Dupont Circle. The staff was friendly, helpful, and fun. The room was large and clean. The hotel is 2 blocks from the Red Line. It is surrounded by restaurants, bars, and little shops. We had a very good time!

The Madera Hotel has large comfortable rooms with welcoming personnel who wish to do nothing more than make your stay as comfortable and enjoyable as possible. The restaurant is small but very inviting with good healthy options. The personnel bends over backwards to see that your every wish is taken care of. I highly recommend the Madera Hotel.

None of the usual hotels I stay at during this annual conference were available. Thank goodness! This small hotel was such a delightful surprise. Just blocks away from Dupont Circle and its Metro stop, yet enough away to seem a respite tucked into a quiet, residential neighborhood. The staff made the experience; everyone was warm and sincere. I was greeted... More

we tend to seek out Kimpton hotels - they seem to have a consistent fresh environment, and friendly service oriented staff. sounds like a line from their web site, but if you travel you know what I mean. There are well staffed hotels that don't make you feel welcome, and there are places that have overly friendly staff that get... More

None of the hotels in DC I usually stay at had availability so I ended up looking through Kimpton properties and found this gem - I am so glad I did. I got a king suite for the rate I usually get a small regular room at higher-end Marriott properties and got better treatment than even the Ritz. Staff were... More

The room at the Madera was lovely--large, clean, great view. But what really made the place stand out was the service. Everyone working there went out of the way to make our stay perfect. My daughter had enjoyed the mints offered at another Kimpton location and asked if the Madera had any. They did not, but by the end of... More
