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

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! Besides being clean, having fun decor( the robes in our room were animal print), adjoining an excellent restaurant, and employing genuinely caring staff, the... More

This is my first time staying at a Kimpton Hotel. Very nice, small hotel tucked away in the Dupont Circle. For the price it is very good quality. For about $200 a night we got a nice suite with a yoga room and a nice sitting area off of the sleeping area. Our beds were very comfortable the design was... More

Had to stay out of our house for 24 hours during a construction project. We (including the dog) were welcomed at the Hotel Madera. The staff were excellent.

I would be hard-pressed to recommend a more convenient location for a casual traveler in Washington, DC. The Madera is three blocks from the Red Line Metro station at Dupont Circle. It's an easy six block walk to the Blue/Orange Line station at Foggy Bottom. Access to either line gets you almost anywhere you want to go in the city.... More

KriksPicks! I can not agree more! The Madera is located in the perfect location. Just a hop, skip, and jump to the dupont metro, a short walk to Georgetown and easy access to Foggy Bottom.

This is a great choice if you're looking to stay near Dupont Circle. The rooms are comfortable (love the Moroccan flair/prints).
