“This is now my "go-to" hotel in DC”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 2, 2012

I've stayed in DC many times at different hotels, but The Madison was by far the best to date. Everything about the place was impressive: friendly and courteous staff, comfortable rooms, outstanding amenities (e.g. plenty of thick bath towels, top shelf toiletries, modern but comfortable furniture, plush beds) two great bars and decent food. And since I got a great deal from Hotwire, it was well worth it. The location is close enough to walk to the Mall (if the weather is decent). Overall, I’m just going to book this hotel from now on.

Room Tip: Try to get a room above the 3rd floor, or one that faces the street.

The fact that The Madison is your D.C. hotel of choice is the best compliment we could ask for. We value your positive feedback as we strive to provide our guests with a relaxing, invigorating experience led by an attentive and welcoming staff. We’re glad that you had the chance to visit both of our bars – the Federalist has recently introduced a number of artisanal winter cocktails that we highly recommend! We look forward to welcoming you back to The Madison soon!

The rooms in this hotel are beautiful, so tasteful and stylish. And the bathrooms are some of the best I have see. Great showers. Service was fast, friendly and efficient. Post-script - the restaurant downstairs was an experience on its own. The waffle-chicken was so much more than the name suggested.

Every moment of my stay here felt like a treat.

I would stay here again but know an additional charge of $50 per day is added to your room until you check out. Example if you room total on your reservation was 400 for 4 days the hold on your card no matter whether it is CC or Debit is an additional $200 - Total held until check out is $600, but when you check out it is refunded if not used during your stay for incidentals. This was an issue for a few guest who had just saved a bit extra for the hotel stay.

Very Lovely Hotel, large rooms with Tubs. I would stay here again, just blocks away from everything. Thank you to a FABULOUS Hotel staff for a wonderful stay.

Room Tip: Some rooms have Tubs others do not, this may be issue if traveling with children.

There were many elegant touches in this magnificently refurbished hotel: great step-in shower, Kuerig coffee maker, comfy robe and excellent service from bellman to wait staff and accomodating front desk (printed out my boarding pass). The Madison is surrounded by restaurants and coffee shops, the metro stop is down 15th/Vermont several blocks (16 minutes to Reagan National) and the White House is nearby. Every evening there were freshly baked cookies waiting in the reception area

Room Tip: If you prefer a BIG soaking bathtub, rather than a huge step-in shower, just ask.

I stay at The Madison every time I'm in Washington, DC. The location is excellent, lobby renovations are fantastic and the staff – from the porters to the concierge – is always friendly and attentive.

Room Tip: If you're traveling alone, ask for a large room with a full-size bed or queen bed.

Located four blocks north of the White House, near Embassy Row, several blocks north of National Mall Monuments and Smithsonian Museums. Key location. Several eateries nearby. Things close down early in this area of DC. National Geographic Museum is one block away. C.O. Bigelow body products and Keurig Gourmet coffees are available in rooms. Decent wi-fi signal in room. Plush towels and comfortable linens. The hotel and our room had exquisite decor and design...very classy. Standard expensive city parking extra. Lobby bar was a nice place to relax with a drink.

I stayed at The Madison for 3 nights in September, and it suited me perfectly. The room was attractive, and quiet, the staff were helpful and as I was on my own I certainly felt secure. The location was great too. The Concierge was friendly and efficient sorting theatre tickets for me and offering sightseeing tips. My one meal in the restaurant was most enjoyable with good food and wine.
