“Great place to stay!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 25, 2012

The room was very nice, the staff friendly and the location great. We could either walk or take a short taxi ride to any place we wanted to go. The concierge was very helpful in getting us to where we wanted to be. We would definitely stay there again.

The furnishings were fantastic. From the wall paper to the tables and chairs, the rooms were well laid out. My only comment was that the bathroom did not have enough counter space to put my cosmetics bag as well as a man's grooming kit. Other than that, i would say it was a lovely visit. The staff a check in were very helpful and upgraded us to a king bed even though i prepaid for 2 queens.

My son says "AWESOME"! Good base for sight-seeing, friendly staff, good food, comfy beds - would recommend it! You do have to go further afield for evening meals if you don't want to be restricted to the hotel restaurant. The hotel food is great but a little more pricey as all hotels are! We got a good deal through our travel agent, so it might have been more expensive direct (always worth searching for the best price!)

We had a very nice stay at the Madison. This elegant hotel has had a recent stylish renovation in the style of a old men's club with updated details.

The location is excellent, being so close to the White House and other attractions. I was able to walk to the conference I was attending at the Convention center in about 10 minutes. It is also close enough to the subway that we took it from the DCA airport and walked.

The rooms were comfortable with lots of space. I've been going to New York a lot lately and the rooms are enormous in comparison. Our room (1201, I think) had a great comfortable King size bed, spacious bathroom and shower that could fit a small party. It was nicely decorated in club style and had comfortable leather chairs. The TV was slow and awkward to navigate but that's a minor complaint. Overall, an excellent hotel. I would definitely return.

Fast free wifi!

We are happy to hear that you liked your room and our recent renovation! Our guest rooms have a lot of custom design elements and the signature white wingback lounge chair is one of our favorites. We hope to see you again soon and thank you for choosing The Madison!

Stayed here for one night recently and we were not disappointed. It's within walking distance of the National Mall so great for tourists. The room was decorated beautifully, in fact the whole hotel is completed to a high standard. All staff were extremely helpful and friendly. Also, don't miss out on the breakfast, especially the blueberry pancakes!

The Madison was tremendous. Their attention to detail, clean common areas and room, and impeccable service did not go unnoticed. The hotel room itself was absolutely beautiful. It was so well appointed and comfortable, that we did not feel compelled to leave very much. The hotel itself could be a destination. We enjoyed a late night dessert in The Postscript Lounge in the lobby, it was great. Our server, Libby, exemplified guest service. We had dinner in the Postscript on the following day, and that too was perfect. The drinks and service were great. We were sad to leave this hotel, and look forward to returning again. To the staff, great work!

We are very glad that you enjoyed your experience at The Madison! We're also thrilled that you enjoyed the service and food at PostScript. Upon your return, we hope you have the opportunity to visit our neighbor, the Federalist restaurant, as well. They too have a wonderful menu of locally sourced American food. We hope to see you again soon!

Stayed here one night on business. Staff very courteous, room very clean although a little on the small side. No ice bucket in the room, but the water bottles by the elevator were a nice touch. You can walk to the White House, Embassies, etc which was very nice.
