Outstanding service all around. We ended up staying an extra day and will stay here again when visiting DC. The rooms are large comfy and our dog Jack enjoyed it too.

Walkable to both the National Mall and to Georgetown - so definitely a great location. Madera is a small hotel, but don't let that fool you - once inside your room, you easily think you're at a Hilton or a Hyatt. Impeccably clean rooms; courteous staff. Nothing bad to say really - except the folks in the next room were throwing some kind of party until 6am - when I was awoken at 4am -- I called downstairs, and whatever it was the staff told the people making the noise, it worked. Will definitely come again.

I loved the hotel Madera. From the moment my fiance and I walked in Michelle and Michael were like coming home to family. They made us feel so welcomed and like we were coming home. The staff was there for all of your needs. Whether it be for pointing us the way of a place that served breakfast anywhere or getting us a cab they were there. I could go back to the Madera over and over again. We were there four days and had a king suite with a balcony. I loved the view nestled right there in a neighborhood. Spending New Years in DC was great and we were close to everything...clubs, food and festivities. Thank you Michael and Michelle you made our stay there the best. You deserve acolades for your presence at the hotel.

Staff went out of their way to make our stay a positive experience.
Hotel was conveniently located to metro station and Dupont Circle.
Room was good size, clean, quiet and comfortable.
Recommend joining Kimpton membership for free internet access and credit towards mini-bar.
Travel to DC a few times a year for leisure and will definitely stay at the Madera Hotel again.

We stayed here for four nights last week and had an overall great experience. The hotel is located in a convenient area with lots of restaurants within walking distance. Metro is two short blocks. The room was spacious, except for tiny bathroom. Beds were very comfortable. Staff was very attentive. We asked for a quiet room and were given one on the tenth floor. Unfortunately, we did hear the elevator mechanism that must have been above the room on the roof. Aside from this, it was a great place to stay.

We just came back from an incredible stay at the Hotel Madera.

Our room was spacious and very clean and comfortable. There was a full size couch, a huge closet, and a nice vanity area. The bedding was incredible soft and very luxurious feeling. We have enjoyed staying at Kimpton hotels before, and this was no exception. The location cannot be beat. We were in a great neighborhood near DuPont circle and a short walk away from the DuPont metro station. The neighborhood was very walkable at all hours. With just these items alone, I will be coming back to the hotel and recommending it to friends.

However, more than anything I really appreciated the helpful staff for the following reasons:

1. We arrived early on the first day. I had a medicine that needed to be refrigerated, which they did without hassle. On our last day, I also asked them to put an ice pack in the freezer for me and they remembered me as I was checking out so they could fetch the ice pack.
2. When my husband was feeling sick and wanted tea, I called for room service, expecting to pay at least $4 + tip for a cup of tea. Instead, they offered to send up our own coffee/hot water maker with tons of tea bags so that we could make it ourselves - free of charge!
3. The internet was down temporarily the morning of our departure, when I was trying to figure out what time a certain bus left for us to get to the airport. I called downstairs, and when we were checking out, the front desk employee had printed our the schedules for us and researched that the line was running on a Sunday schedule.

Other notable mentions:
1. The complimentary breakfast was really good -- assortment of muffins/danishes and coffee/tea/juices.
2. Free cookies and milk in the lobby from 10PM to 2AM!
3. Free wifi (which is a must for us)

We have stayed in a Kimpton hotel before and found them to have great value. Hotel Madera did not disappoint. The best thing about the hotel is the staff. They are genuinely nice and helpful. Not manufactured, not coached, not scripted - genuine. Probably the best staff interaction I have found in a hotel. The rooms are very clean and nice, but a little small, but we generally like smaller rooms. The lobby is also small and probably a little worn. When they have the wine hour in the lobby you can use the restaurant/bar to sit so the atmosphere is great. I understand they are going to refurbish and expand the lobbby. That would help. The Firefly restaurant was great and the continental breakfast wonderful. You are on a quieter street close to Dupont Circle and the Metro station. We would definitely stay here again and is our first choice for a DC hotel. Better on the inside than it looked on the outside.
