I was having friends from abroad visiting the city so I wanted a place convenient to the Metro, near Dupont for the eateries and night life, not too expensive. I was happy with the Madera, the staff was great, including the porters. Room was very nice, no complaints. My only complaint is the $15 service fee the hotel charged above... More

Im a Kimpton Karma rewards member and tend to stay at their properties whenever I need a "staycation" in my own city as I live in the DC area. Ive stayed at almost all of the properties in DC and this is by far the best. The room was large and the balcony on the very top floor provided a... More

We stayed at this hotel last year and had a great room and a nice stay. This time we had a room with a minuscule bathroom with an ill-functioning air conditioner. We asked maintenance to fix it but it never worked properly. When I turned it down to 65 it was still warm and humid in the room. The bedroom... More

Great hotel!!!!! The room was clean large balcony view of DC and the restaurant was excellent. Compared to many other hotels the overall experience is fantastic. We went for an evening walk in an amazing historic neighbourhood and a 20 minute walk had us at the Georgetown waterfront. Overall would highly recommend this hotel.

I stay at the Hotel Madera several times a month. I love this hotel for its location, its amenities, and most of all for the consistent experience and super friendly staff. The rooms are large enough to comfortably house a small family. The adjacent restaurant and bar are convenient after a long day in the office. The daily reception is... More

As a business traveler, my first and foremost concern is always efficiency and customer service. Kimpton consistently over performs in both categories. Madera's staff is incredible accommodating, pleasant, and bright. They were a highlight of my trip! The room was spacious and clean, the bed was comfortable, the mini-fridge stocked, and the desk and office chair were ergonomically sound for... More

The Madera was probably once a 1960's apartment building that was turned into a "boutique" hotel. It's small. I can get past that BUT, this hotel does not compare to other Kimpton's I've visited. First, staff is friendly, but clearly this hotel is understaffed. We arrived & there was no one to help with bags. The front desk clerk checked... More
