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

The Madera is a great place to stay in DC. It's usually priced below many of the other neighborhood hotels but provides rooms, amenities, and service on par or better. The staff is really nice and helpful and the rooms are very spacious, many with balconies. The only complaint about the room is the very small size of the toilet/tub... More

What a lovely little hotel in a quiet and pretty part of DC, a nice walk to Georgetown. Our room was very spacious and beautifully decorated. We enjoyed our stay immensely. Service was excellent. We have stayed in several Kimpton Hotels in DC and loved them all, each very unique.

We stayed at the Madera on a stopover from Hawaii back to England (24/8 to 26/8). Great hotel completely made by the friendliness, attentiveness and genuine interest of all of the staff. Housekeeping, porters, waiting staff and reception were as friendly as I have met anywhere in the world. They wanted to help with everything. They made great recommendations for... More

We stayed at the Madera for a night and enjoyed ourselves entirely. The neighborhood is very residential with the homes being older and beautiful. It is a nice setting to walk to surrounding areas. We stayed on the top floor, which afforded nice views towards Georgetown and the backyard gardens of nearby homes. The room was spacious, and the bed... More

Irishiiis! How adorable is Dupont? Such a fun historical neighborhood. We love Kimpton Karma which rewards our loyal members with free internet and a $10 credit for the bar or minibar. Wine Hour is always a hit with delicious snacks from Firefly and great wines to try. DC is such a great walking city and we are the perfect location... More

First time I have stayed here and would stay here again. It is pricey, but hey, everything is in Washington D.C. Very contemporary as far as check in and has a small lobby/waiting area. Quite in the hotel, no issues, staff was friendly.

We stayed at this hotel because it was in close proximity to our daughter who just moved to the Dupont Circle area. What a great find! Everytime we left or entered, we were greeted by name!
