Stayed for 5 nights at the Madera and enjoyed every minute of our stay. Our kingsize room on the sixth floor was nicely decorated, had a balcony and was extra spacious. The room had everything necessary for a long stay - iron, ironing board, hair dryer, mini bar etc. with copious amounts of wardrobe space, vanity space and seating space.... More

When all the key basics are covered at a hotel, it comes down to the people and their kind and professional service that sets a hotel apart. At the Madera there were bright sunny people that gave me their full attention from the minute I landed. One of their bell hops had to walk 4 blocks to get me a... More

Felt like room was a little dated compared to other Kimpton properties I've stayed at. Not bad by any means, but not the boutique atmosphere and service I expected. The location is terrific if you want to be in the Dupont Circle area.

We just came from a weekend at the Madera and we were extremely pleased with the hotel. We were traveling with our dog and that always involve a degree of anxiety especially on a rainy weekend, but the hotel staff was so responsive to our requests and greeted us warmly coming and going and put us at ease immediately.

We try our best to deliver prompt friendly service and it means a lot to me that your family appreciated that. We... More

We found this lovely hotel in DuPont Circle using expedia.com and are so glad we did. My wife and 11 year old son and I stayed here for two nights for our double birthday and anniversary weekend and from the moment we arrived we were welcomed like family. The outside of the hotel is totally unpretentious and gives you no... More

This hotel is located in the Dupont Circle area of Washington DC. About 2 blocks from the Metro. Lots of restaurants, clubs, and shopping in the area. Hotel offers wine happy hour nightly which is a nice touch. Rooms are a little small but very comfortable for the Washington DC area. I have stayed here many times while on business... More

I could not be more satisfied with our two night stay at the Madera in late September. Although this is a typical experience for a Kimpton Hotel, I thought this hotel was particularly special. Terrific location on New Hampshire Avenue at only a block and a half distance from Dupont Circle Metro. This is the neighborhood you will want to... More

Matt W! Your review made me smile from ear to ear. All Kimpton are awesome but as one of the smaller ones we get to stand out due to our wonderful staff. As you mentioned this neighborhood and location is the best of the best. In addition, we are proud to be one of the few hotels in the area... More

Comfortable firm mattress and soft linens provided a decent nights sleep during a recent business trip. Coffee was available in the tiny narrow lobby. My only concern was the tiny shower/tub and bathroom. I recommend this hotel if you are staying solo.
