Priceline's "Name Your Price" gave us this property - and it was beautiful. Rooms were quiet, spacious, and well decorated. Location is 2 blocks from the Red Line Metro in the upscale DuPont Circle area. Loved everything about the hotel and location. The reason for the 4-star designation is simply because there were some hiccups with the front desk. We... More

My husband and I recently stayed here for Valentine's weekend. This was not our first time at this particular hotel, but it was our first time traveling with our pet! There is an entire floor that is pet friendly and the suites are very nice. The room is equipped with a dog dish, dog bed, and even treats are available... More

This is the second time I've stayed at the Madera, and it's been fantastic each time. The shining stars are the staff- every person we interacted with there was incredible. Huge smiles, go out of their way to help and offer extras, remember really nice details about you, and just really generous. When we checked in, the person at the... More

This was my second stay here and it was even better than the first which is hard to top! The staff is absolutely wonderful, John, Tee, Dannyboy, Ayanna, and Sue were so helpful and accommodating. The moment you walk in you feel at home not at a hotel. It was very cold the day I arrived and right away I... More

My husband, daughter, and I stayed at this small hotel in Dupont Circle during a recent college visit tour. It's in a great location, very nicely appointed, and the staff is exceedingly friendly, remembering our names each time we went in and out. The afternoon snacks and morning beverages were a nice touch, and we enjoyed the Firefly restaurant too.... More

Ellen F, I hope you had a productive college tour visit. The snacks, morning beverages, yoga mats and robes are always a hit. I apologize about the music from the restaurant, it is usually turned off by 10pm. It was great met you and your family. John Esainko, General Manager More

I travel to DC a lot for work and I always stay at the Madera. The staff is extremely kind and I love the hotel bar. The beds are the best and always comfy. Overall, the rooms are very large and there is plenty of space. As a Karma member I usually always get an upgrade and if I am... More

My boyfriend and I stayed at this hotel past weekend and we fell absolutely in love with it! The room was spacious enough and very stylish (even their robes were super fun! Safari themed!)

I travelled with two 10 year old boys for President's weekend. We were all very impressed with the size of the room and the accommodations. They didn't even miss having a pool because the swag (bathrobes, yoga mat, bikes, happy hour desserts, hot chocolate in the morning) was so good! Neighborhood felt like we lived there which I love coming... More

EVERYONE at this hotel and the next door restaurant - Firefly - showed us what superb customer service is! From finding a tie for my husband 10 minutes before we had to leave for a business dinner, to making us feel so welcome after we returned to the hotel from a long day! The hotel is a lovely boutique accommodation,... More

This was a terrific find. Easy location (1 block walk to Dupont metro & walkable to Foggy Bottom). Including parking was a huge bonus. We checked in and didn't see the car again until after check out. While it's not a fancy lobby, it is warm and efficient. Felt like coming into our apartment. Room was perfect -- had plenty... More

Debra K! I am so happy you found us! Our lobby may be smaller but has a homey feel.The SNAK room you booked is one of my favorites with the kitchenette area and table and chairs. Being in a residential area our hotel tends to be quieter than most. Thanks for stopping by. John Esainko, General Manager More
