Pros: Quaint and clean rooms, nice decor, room was decent in size, centrally located (5-10 mins walk to a lot of restaurants & night life) Cons: Bathroom is tiny, there isn't really a place for a check in desk so it's pretty cramped (it's just a tiny building lobby where they put a countertop table and laptop on it), There...

Whenever I travel for work, I always try to find a Kimpton Hotel. The staff always go out of there way to make you feel special - it's the "Kimpton Way!" It's a good reminder for how we should all be everyday in our interactions with others - why not try to make each other feel special in all we... More

This is a beautiful hotel, with very accommodating & friendly staff. My room was quite spacious & perfect for business travel. the location was just what I needed: about halfway between the office and all the attractions of Dupont Circle. Will definitely go back!

I come here almost every time I am in town for work, which is frequently. The hotel is great - quiet, comfy, with an amazing staff -- especially John, who always remembers me and knows what I want in a room! It is a relatively small hotel, which is nice. The location can't be beat. The people are great.

This hotel was well located, near Dupont Circle, and the staff there were very friendly. However, I am not able to give it a great rating (only three stars), as it was (1) expensive, (2) penny-pinching and (3) a little dated. To take the positives first. The hotel is located only a short walk from the metro, and so it's... More

I had a very quick business trip to D.C. and found this place just right for my needs - the room is furnished tastefully, large, with a bonus large couch. The best feature for me was the free yoga mat, which i made use of on my stay. The staff were very eager to please and welcoming, the manager even... More

Almost everything was great for my stay except for the most important aspect: a comfortable bed. The SHEETS DO NOT FIT THE BEDS. When I first got into bed after a long travels with meetings the next day, I thought that some cruel employee was out to get me by short-sheeting the bed since my feet immediately were off the...

I recently stayed at Madera in DC. Of course, the location is outstanding - very well positioned. And the fringe benefits are nice - free bike to pedal around the city (very bike-friendly city), use of the gym at the Kimpton hotel down the street, free tea, granola and wine depending on the time of day, free shoe buffing, etc....

My family recently stayed at the Madera for a short trip to DC. We loved the neighborhood and found a lot of great restaurants within walking distance to the hotel. The metro stop is nearby as well which was super convenient. We stayed in a bunk room which was perfect for our two kids. The room was very spacious. The... More
