Hotel Madera is more than just a hotel. The staff goes above and beyond to ensure that your stay there is enjoyable. The hotel was always clean and welcoming, and the Firefly was a nice relaxing place for dinner. Located only a block or two from a metro, the location was perfect. There are plenty of restraunts to eat at within walking distance. I would personally suggest Bagels Etc. for breakfast. Our room was on the tenth floor and always quiet. We never had to wait for the elevator since one was always on the 10th floor and one on the 1st. The room was nice and big. The beds are so comfortable. We never had an issue with anything at this hotel. When my husband and I need a reasonably priced dinner on our last night in D.C we called down to the front desk and they printed us a list of nearby restraunts with price indicators. They also suggested a quaint and popular Mexican restraunt only a 10 minute walk away. We never made it to the coffee and wine, but the free milk and cookies were a nice touch after a taxing day of walking. The Madera and staff will only receive high regards and recomendations from my husband and me.
