There are a huge amount of hotels in dc and i think this hotel is a good fit for a lot of people. It is not too big, very cosy and at a good location in dupont circle. Add a very nice brunch place as firefly to this and you know you have a good combination. Rooms are decent, service... More

5* hotel, every member of staff was amazing and went out of their way to help you. The hotel is very clean and the rooms are well decorated. We were a family of 5 and the rooms fit us all in plus luggage and we still had lots of space. We would definitely recommend this hotel to friends and family.

This was our first time in DC at the Madera, and it was fantastic! We chose this hotel for its location and trendy, comfy room decor. Our 2 queen beds room was very spacious and well maintained. As a family of four, we had plenty of room and were very comfortable. Our biggest surprise at this hotel was seeing four... More

There are hundreds of hotels in DC from which to chose from but the Madera was a perfect fit for us! We traveled with our 5 year old son and we all were made to feel very welcomed.

My husband loves this hotel, and decided it would be a perfect base from which we could explore Washington and visit with our adult children. The room was huge, and extremely quiet... we were on the 10th floor facing the Cathedral. While the view looking straight down on the back alley and garbage cans was not especially attractive, the vista... More

I really enjoyed this small hotel which was near practically everything. The bed was one of the best beds I have ever had the pleasure of sleeping in at a hotel.

I've never stayed at a Kempton Hotel. I love this place. It has a boutique quality in DuPont Circle. The room is really nicely appointed. This is a place you can relax, get some serious work done, or party with friends. It does not feel like your traditional Hiltons or Marriott. Loving my stay.

I'd give this hotel an excellent rating based on the people who work there, the concierge, Nicole, was amazingly helpful and friendly, she made us feel like family...and best part was her restaurant recommendations, spot on...the valet was great too, Ty, very friendly.
