I am a regular traveler to Washington DC for business and for the past several years have stayed at the Hotel Madera. Great hotel, wonderful staff. I appreciate that the same staff are there after several years, which says a lot about management. Rooms are clean and I love the extras like the comfy beds, soft terrycloth robes, down pillows, wine in the lobby between 5 and 6 pm, and the great service. The daily delivery of newspaper outside my room each morning is great. Dupont Circle is a great place to stay, good restaurants nearby. The Firefly, at the hotel itself, is superb!
