Nothing but plus plus comments. Lovely room, great maid service, hotel bar thumbs up! Jazz night was wonderful....Let me not forget the doormen....Ramon and Romeo, fantastic, even stopped traffic for us to get in the left lane to make our turn upon leaving DC Monday morning. October was beautiful in DC!

Room Tip: Our room was on the 9th floor and overlooking the main entrance. We were very pleased.

Stays at the Madison are consistent and enjoyable. For business in downtown D.C. the location is very good. There are excellent restaurants within a few blocks and easy access to downtown sports or arts events.

We just returned from a 3 night stay at the Loew's Madison. This is truly a gem. Definitely deserves a 4-1/2 star rating! It has a perfect location 4 blocks from the White House. It's an elegant smaller hotel and the rooms are well appointed. Ours was quite spacious and bright with two queen beds on the 14th floor. Very quiet as well. Love the keurig coffee machine for your morning coffee. The only problem we encountered was the fact we had to leave.
We decided we will return again next year and no doubt about it - our stay will definitely be the Loew's.

Many thanks to Justin Adams, manager of rooms, for his assistance in arranging our room and to Tobi at the front desk for his help and his wonderful welcoming smile. Also, Kaouthar, concierge desk will assist you with any of your plans.

Enjoy.

Loews hotels are a guarantee. I've stayed at a couple and they're always good. This one has a wonderful location and very attentive staff. I love that they're a pet friendly hotel, but they charge you $75 per stay, which I think is a little too much, especially in my case, were I was staying only for a night. Other than that, I enjoyed it.

I was recently there for 3 nights and enjoyed the hotel -- it's smaller, very elegant, with well appointed rooms. Maid service was very late in cleaning my room one day and there was a bit of noise on Saturday night, but otherwise, all was just what I'd hoped for in booking a less crowded, smaller hotel.

Good location, very nice restaurant and perfect bar. (And they were terribly nice about making me an off-menu sandwich when I came down too early for lunch one day. Over and above service. Much appreciated.

Room Tip: 15th floor is the top floor -- and my end-of-hall room seemed generally quieter.

I travel a lot for work and I will say if this was work travel the hotel would have been good enough. When im paying for a $250 dollar a night hotel for pleasure I expect a little more. We passed several old room service trays but that didnt really bother us. The impetus behind this review is a trip my fiancé and I made to the bar. My fiancé likes to drink old fashions. He ordered one at the hotel bar. He took one sip and I could tell he wasnt happy. I asked what was wrong and he said it tasted horrible. He tried to drink it but eventually had to alert the bartender who promptly told us that she thought an old fashion was burboun and salt. Thud. Id expect better from a Lowes. My poor fiance is next to me feeling ill from all of the sodium. If you would like a hotel with a slightly knowledgeable bar...look elsewhere.

Washington was our first stop in the States on our Honeymoon & we loved our stay at the Lowes Madison. Yes it is more upmarket than the average hotel & the prices reflect this. The hotel decor was elegant, staff very friendly & bar expensive! We had 2 whiskys & a Washingtonian cocktail (highly recomended) & including tip it cost us $70/ZAR700!! For South Africans that is unheard of. Our room was clean, spacious & the bed very comfortable. The only suggestion would be to place a luggage rack in the rooms. We had 2 cases & didn't necessarily want to unpack into the wardrobe & drawers. We were woken in the early mornings by some noise from the street as the business days started,but it wasn 't too bad. The hotel is in the middle of a city after all & from a location point of view it was perfect for sight seeing. Loved this hotel & loved this city!!
