We staying here for a quick overnight family trip to DC. I got a great last minute rate, and could be more pleased. From the minute we drove up, the staff was friendly and attended to our every need. They brought a "pet" goldfish up for my daughter - which she loved! The room was nice sized, and had comfy... More

My husband and I have been here at the Hotel Madera on New Hamphire Ave NW for two nights. I made my reservations online and reserved the king room with balcony and the $20 breakfast charge. The room is beautiful, stylish, and spacious. The $20 breakfast charge is misleading. It can only be used at the restaurant next door and... More

I love Kimpton properties, but this one fell flat. Basically all of our problems related to service, but to be clear, that actually didn't seem to be the fault of any of the people we interacted with. In fact, they were great, with the sort of "of course we can!" attitude you expect at a Kimpton. The problem was that... More

Just came back from a short overnight stay at the Madera and i just have to give a big shout out to the amazing staff at this hotel--they really made my stay. From the young man who checked me in, to the valet who brought my car--every one i met seemed genuinely interested in making my stay memorable. Thank you!

A short walk from the Dupont Circle metro station, this is on a fairly major road downhill towards Georgetown. Typical Kimpton service, balcony rooms at the front have best view across town. Will be better when the renovations directly opposite from entrance are completed. Snack room I stayed at on second visit was odd - kitchenette had no windows and... More

In all my travels, I have never met a nicer group of people. From the front desk (thanks Nicole and Danny) to housekeeping to the wait staff at Firefly restaurant they were friendly and helpful. They made you feel genuinely welcome from the moment you walk in until you check out. The hotel is fabulous and is located in a... More

We stayed here 2 nights mid week and were pleased with the value compared to other DC hotels. The room was large, modern, clean and had a step out balcony. The toilet/tub room was almost funny, I felt like I was in an airplane - but it worked. Good size closet and vanity area. The staff was very friendly and... More

CAB109, I agree our rooms are large and modern in a great location. I agree as we are a boutique hotel our lobby is smaller than most. Our guests are always invited to take their complimentary wine to their rooms our the bar if gthe lobby gets too croweded. Next time if you request a room away from the elevator... More

We stayed here for three nights after one week in NYC. Upon arriving a nice man from the hotel staff opened the doors for us. The lobby indeed is very small but has all it needs. Check-In was very quick and we given some info about the hotel and its restaurant, the Firefly. Unfortunately we did not have time to... More

Daniel B, DC is a nice change after the busy NY environment! I am so happy you were able to stay 3 nights with us. Our lobby space makes checkin quick and easy. I wish I could live in our rooms as they are so large! The Dupont Circle neighborhood is one of o my favorites with lots to do... More

I was in town for a conference, but it was also my birthday. They made the three nights really special--even a bottle of wine and cupcakes on my birthday! Sue and Danny were super helpful. The wine hour and night caps for free in the lobby are a super nice touch. And the free local car service (within one mile)... More

I had taken an Amtrak from Richmond to Union Station on a day of major wintry weather; lots of sleet. The hotel is close to the Dupont Circle Metro Station. Once I approached Hotel Madera, a nice gentleman opened each door for me. This is my first boutique hotel stay, but it's provided a step above other 4-star hotels. I... More
