“Great place to stay”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 31, 2013

We recently spent four nights at this hotel while playing tourist and seeing the DC sights. The room was very clean and comfortable and every staff member we encountered was extremely helpful and courteous. We used room service for one evening meal and the food was delivered when promised and was good. Also had breakfast in the hotel one morning and was very satisfied. The nearest Metro station is 3 blocks away and cabs were readily available.

Ate meals and attended several business meetings/events in the hotel. The dining room wait staff seemed overwhelmed and late with parts of various meals. Food was average at best. Various items unavailable at breakfast. Would say that the restaurant is challenged when the hotel is full.

We loved this hotel; we were only in DC for 3 days and we found this to be a great spot to stay. The main concierge was delightful to deal with and was so welcoming from the moment we arrived. Rooms are clean, spacious and stylishly decorated. Comfortable bed and great shower. The restaurant downstairs was great, beautifully decorated and super professional and attentive staff. Highly recommend.

First visit to Washington. Hotel is centrally located 3 blocks from the White House virtually opposite the Washington Post office.
Taxi was £40 from the airport. Reception staff appeared to be multi lingual. Quick and efficient check in. Nice room with 2 very comfortable double beds. About 10 pillows per bed!! Room was modern and well cleaned. Downside was a bit erratic air conditioning, but we were doing that much walking each day did not really notice it too much.
Very expensive minibar, over 200 dollars for half bottle of spirits is excessive, one would imagine catering for the business man, not your typical tourist. Ice is free of charge via room service which can be a pain.
There is not a vast choice of bars / restaurants nearby, but they can be found.
This is a very nice hotel centrally located if you are looking to see the sites or on business.

My 1 night stay at the Madison was almost "perfect"... The location is great, easy walking to DC sights and Metro. We arrived very early at 10am and our room was available.. very nice agent had no problem swiftly checking us in, offering a hotel tour, which we declined and we were off to our room. Deluxe King was small but beautifully furnished, with a large marble bathroom. Bed was super comfy and all in all a great city hotel room, very recently refurbished and in great shape.. The TV remote was not functioning, so someone came, couldn't fix it, and within 5 minutes they sent a new TV ! small glitch, handled very well..... bfast was great too... A great DC choice..

We just returned from 3 nights at the Madison. The rooms were beautifully decorated, well appointed, and very clean. The towels were large, fluffy and soft which is something I appreciate after having found the opposite in many hotels. The staff was amazing, helpful and friendly, always remembering and using our names upon departure and arrival. Their Star service is just that. Requests were responded to quickly and efficiently. It is centrally located and walking distance or short cab or metro ride to most attractions. I would highly recommend this hotel and would definitely stay there again on our next trip to DC.

Great experience at the Madison. Loved the decor. The staff were VERY friendly and attentive. The room we had was a average/decent sized king room but the decor is lovely and gives it a very upscale feel. We walked around in the evening as well as at night and felt very comfortable in the neighborhood. Very convenient to get to the white house and other sights. This time it was just my husband and I for a weekend getaway but this is the kind of hotel where you could also bring your family and be very comfortable. Highly recommend and looking forward to returning next year!

Room Tip: We chose the deluxe king room to get the street view but I wouldn't bother next time. The street...
