Hotel Madera exceeded expectations in every regard. The room was spacious, clean and nicely decorated. It provided morning coffee and newspapers and evening wine in the lobby. The staff was always upbeat and ready with helpful suggestions. The location is in a pleasant neighborhood, within walking distance to DC sights and easy access to the subway. There are a variety...

Forget those generic business hotels. This boutique hotel delivers excellent bang for your buck in every way. And little extras abound, including free bicycles, free wine every afternoon, a yoga mat in your room, access to a gym... Incredible, friendly, professional service, making sure every guest feels like they are the centre of the hotel's universe. Excellent location, no matter... More

This hotel has Amazing service, comfortable beds and a huge room. Great location too. Wine-o-clock hour is free at 5pm and they give you animal print robes to use during your stay! The firefly restaurant attached to the hotel has a great atmosphere.

Kosco! You have summed us up with one of my favorite words! Amazing! Wine O'Clock is a great time of day as we get to relax and rejuvinate from a long day. We love getting to know our guests and wish we all could own one of those robes. Thanks for checking us out. John Esainko General Manager More

The five reasons why I really love Madera and hope to get to stay there again soon: 1. The quality and value you expect from Kimpton, delivered upon quite nicely 2. Location - doesn't get better for the business or the pleasure traveler 3. Beautiful, impeccably clean rooms with fun touches that make them more enjoyable than the big brand... More

I often stay at Madera when on business here. Staff quickly makes you feel like home. Bed is comfortable and food at FireFly has healthy options. Gym and other amenities are available free of charge at nearby Kimpton property. If you use these and don't mind walking a few blocks, it is a good home away from home.

Spent one night here recently. We live in the DC area but wanted to get away from the kids for a night out not too far from home. The hotel has a great location, very close to Dupont Circle. We found the staff super friendly and very helpful. We arrived early but had no problem checking in straight away. The... More

Hotel Madera made our weekend amazing. The service was outstanding, rooms very clean and the beds were soo comfortable we asked for a late checkout (which was granted, cheerfully). The staff was very attentive. Close proximity to all museums and historic DC sights. I can't wait to stay here in December when I visit again.

RoadTripJunki! Aren't weekend getaways the best!! We are so happy you enjoyed our service, rooms and beds. We certainly enjoyed having you. It might be a bit colder outside when you visit in December but inside it will be just as warm! John Esainko, General Manager More

Positive: 1) The staff here, at all levels, are great. Sue does an amazing job being super welcoming at the front desk. Given that there's only one agent for the entire hotel, that's not an easy task. 2) The location is very convenient: close to the metro and a short car ride from most DC sites. Neutral: Spacious rooms. Some... More

This charming hotel is my "go-to" place when I visit DC to conduct training. The warmth and courtesy of the staff is matched only by the meticulous care of the rooms. This gem-like quiet hotel is located just off Dupont Circle and a haven after a tough day. Their evening "happy hours" serving wine in the lobby gratis is a... More
