The Madison is a nice hotel, especially having undergone a dramatic renovation of its public spaces in the past year or so. All the staff are very professional, courteous, what you would expect at a 5 star hotel in a big city.
The hotel was recently bought back by Lowes, and they seem to have made some really silly decisions in their transition. As an example, they closed the lobby bar and resturant to try to force more business to the in-house, more formal resturant. It's pretty inexcusable to not have coffee/cocktail service anytime of the day in the lobby bar.
I'd recommend not frequenting the Madison until they work some of the kinks out in this transition. There are plenty of other really nice hotels in the neighborhood - like the Jefferson Hotel for example - that are focused on pleasing their customers, rather than driving business to a sub-par, over priced resturant. I will try it again in a few weeks to see if they have improved and re-post for the benefit of potential customers. For now, stay away.
