Everything was perfect for my stay at the Madera. The room was spacious, clean, quiet and had the Kimpton flair. The food at the FireFly restaurant was delicious. The friendly professional staff went above and beyond and made my stay a true pleasure.

We selected the Madera because of it's location, amenities, spa service and restaurant description. We didn't get to use the spa service, but the rest far exceeded our expectations. It has a great location, and I can't say enough about how wonderful the staff and service is! The room, food, and drinks were wonderful, but the people separate the Madera... More

Edward W! Sounds like a winning stay to me! You are right what truly sets us apart is the people. Having a smaller hotel allows us to have more of an intimate connection with our guests similar to family as you stated. Sue truly puts her heart into her job and I am so happy you chose to celebrate your... More

Went with my wife and her family (dog included). Great location, hard to find parking though on the street. Very close to trains. Staff was very friendly and hotel was really clean. We got upgraded to a larger room which was huge, had a pull out couch and lots of space. Not much of a lobby but enjoyed the complimentary... More

My stay at the Hotel Madera was extremely pleasant. The staff was warm and friendly and the room was clean and modern. I had all of the amenities I needed, including an adorable robe, shampoo, body wash and conditioner, and the design of the room was chic and contemporary. Staff offered a citrus infused glass of water upon entering the... More

My friend celebrated her birthday in DC and booked this hotel. I had no input and it was a welcomed surprise when we arrived. It was a little frazzled when we checked in since the parking lot was full, the valet wasn't outside, we didn't see the hotel clerk and the valet had to initiate getting us checked in. The... More

Definitely a dog friendly place. Actually an overall friendly place. Upon arrival, we stopped out frond and Sue and Tee welcomed us right in at check in. The lobby area is very small but pet friendly with a water and kibble dish at the entrance. The king room with a balcony was very comfortable for us to stay, lounge and... More

I stayed here for one night for a business trip. I was looking for a dog-friendly hotel that was nice, reasonably priced, and convenient to public transportation. I certainly found it - Hotel Madera was lovely, and encompassed all of these qualities. The staff was friendly and helpful, and Firefly had a fun atmosphere and delicious food. I would definitely...

Stayed at the Kimpton again for five nights in November with the family. The place has managed to maintain its standards and quality, and we were again very happy with it and will definitely return next time we are in DC. Thanks a lot again to the hotel team for making us feel so welcome.

We have stayed several times at the Madera, and have each time been very happy with the friendly service, the comfortable rooms, and the fantastic location. The Firefly restaurant in the hotel is great, too! And there are many fabulous restaurants and fun shops nearby.
