Quirkily decorated rooms, Fantastically comfortable bed :)
Just a short walk from the whitehouse puts this hotel in a nice location - not far from Metro either to connect with Union Station and Metro Centre.

All staff very professional, polite, friendly and with great recommendations.
Bath deep enough to take an enjoyable one - and the Bath robe for after was a nice touch.
Would mosty definately be staying again.
Cleaning was to an exceptional standard, and down to doorman and maintenance staff I was made to feel welcome.

We just visited Washington D.C. for 4 nights and came home yesterday. This was our first trip to D.C. and I wanted to stay somewhere really special. Before I book a trip anywhere, I always read Trip Advisor reviews because the reviews are always spot on. Also, I am VERY particular about a hotel. We travel a lot and I spend considerable time researching different hotels prior to booking a trip. To me, the overall hotel experience can really make or break a vacation.

I had high expectations of The Madison based upon the excellent reviews posted here. I was not disappointed. The lobby is beautiful, the staff friendly and helpful, the hotel sparkling clean, the rooms quiet and comfortable, and the food delicious. We ate at Postscripts and The Federalist and everything was perfect.

When we arrived at the hotel before check-in, the hotel was considerate enough to provide us a room early. Every little detail was taken care of. I had forgotten my cell phone charger and the staff arranged to get me one to use during my stay. We ran out of coffee and someone delivered more coffee to our room within minutes. My husband loved the bathroom products so the front desk gave us extra upon check-out. If you need something, anything, the friendly staff is literally waiting there to help you.

My husband and I upgraded to an Executive Terrace room and we loved it. The bed was comfortable and the room was gorgeous. We even had a view of the Washington Monument from our terrace. After a long day of sightseeing in muggy D.C. weather, I looked forward to going back to this wonderful, welcoming hotel. Even the elevators were fast. We never had to wait for anything. This hotel is perfect and I would absolutely stay here again. I recommend it highly!

Room Tip: Upgrade to the Executive terrace room!

I live in DC, and stayed here during a "staycation" for my anniversary with my husband a few weekends ago. We had an absolutely wonderful stay and I highly recommend this hotel to visitors! We were upgraded to a suite upon arrival, which was a standard room plus a nice chair off to the side and a desk area. The room was beautiful, the bed and linens were very fresh and clean, and the bathroom was beautiful and CLEAN. (Nothing is worse than dirt or mildew in bathrooms!!) I just cannot stay enough about how clean and beautiful the rooms were -- it knocked my socks off!

The following morning, we checked out and had breakfast at PostScript, which was very nice -- light, bright, tables at windows, with a great cup of tea and nice, refreshing menu options!

For area visitors, this hotel is in Downtown DC, 3 blocks from the McPherson Square Metro (White House/VA exit), which is on the Orange and Blue line -- connecting you to the airport, Virginia, GWU, Smithsonian, Capitol Hill, and Eastern Market. You're also 5 blocks from the White House in a nice neighborhood with plenty of restaurants in the area, or within a fast cab or metro ride!

My family and I stayed here for Spring Break in April for 3 nights and it was very nice. Our room was spacious and nicely designed with comfortable beds and chairs. The bathroom was amazing and very modern and sophisticated. Our view however was not very nice, instead of a nice city street or courtyard we had a view of some alley and some taller buildings, so we kept the curtains closed. The lobby and service was great though. When we arrived on time our room was not ready so they gave us a seat in the lobby cafe and gave us a round of complimentary drinks and fries as we waited. The hotel was in one of the best city locations possible. Just blocks away from all the action in the city yet far enough that our room was quiet at night. We were three blocks away from the white house and Dupont Circle. There was a great cafe across the street called the Caribou Cafe that we used to get a quick breakfast to go with amazing croissents and apple strudels.

I had the pleasure of staying at the Madison two weekends ago while in Washington D.C. I have spent the better part of the last five months in D.C., mostly transiting between various hotels that were in the vicinity of my office. Though it isn't particularly far away, the Madison is NOT near my office, so it had never occurred to me to stay there.

I was in town with my significant other a few weekends ago and used Priceline to book a hotel in the area around the White House. I had just spent the week in the Capitol Hilton, so that will be my main frame for comparison; until I found the Madison my other favorite places to stay in D.C. were the Liaison Capitol Hill, the Hilton, and the Winn.

The room was decorated in a slightly busy but intriguing way - quirky, elegant furnishings that were the perfect place to relax after a busy day in and about D.C. A few things that stood out for me: wonderful linens, with a double-sheeted comforter. Air conditioning that kept the room at the perfect temperature (for my significant other, this means "arctic chill"). Two bathrobes in the closet. Keurig beverage maker in the room, with pods for coffee, decaf, and, wonder of wonders, green tea. There were ceramic mugs on the credenza. The wireless internet was fast and FREE (which amazed and delighted us-first time I've gotten free wireless without status of some sort at a 4* hotel).

Finally, there were real wine glasses (not the kind that your two year old can hurl at the floor and will bounce, but actual stemware) provided on the credenza. I have never, ever been to a hotel that supplied actual wine glasses (without calling down to room service) in the room, just the thick-stemmed heavy glass wine glasses that are barely good enough to drink two buck chuck out of.

We didn't see much of the staff, but they were polite and attentive when we did see them.

This is absolutely my new favorite hotel in Washington D.C. and I will stay here any chance I get.

This was my first stay at THE MADISON in DC and I would give it 10 stars, if possible. The rooms, the food, the location, the service, down to every single request was amazing and accomplished with ease and grace. Gavin Philipp the Hotel Manager was very kind, as was Ms. Kaouthar Bouhaouala the most helpful Concierge/Guest Reception person, I have ever met.. Mr.Bismarck Asare who was at the front desk showed kindness, compassion and was very accomodating with any request. All of the Employees to the doorman, wait staff in the restaurants, housekeeping etc,. you could tell they loved and appreciated their jobs as well as the guests. They all had smiles on their faces constantly and were polite. I felt as though I was staying in the "Whitehouse". Everyone and everything was PERFECTION TO THE EXTREME. The Madison will always be my hotel in DC moving forward.

Room Tip: My room was beautiful and comfortable. The rooms that has two beds appeared like Queen Beds. The ro...
