Stayed in a room with a balcony that was huge and decorated tastefully. Staff went above and beyond my expectations - always helpful and smiling. It was my daughters birthday and the staff left a birthday card, four cupcakes, and a bottle of champagne in our room! What a welcome! This was our first visit to dc and happy we...

The Madera is a good example of why the Kimpton brand is becoming a go-to option for us on visits to urban centers around the country. It is well situated just off Dupont Circle but on a fairly quiet block, offers good value and has a helpful, attentive staff. Pluses: Large rooms (and we were upgraded to one with a...

Dear Edward H, Thank you so much for your lovely compliments! I am so glad that you loved your room, and of course the upgrade doesn't hurt! We really appreciate your feedback, as well, on the size of the bathroom and the coffe, especially since without your comments we would not be able to better improve our guests' experience.

My wife and I spent the weekend as tourists in D.C. and enjoyed our stay at the Hotel Madera. What impressed us most was the friendly service by the staff. Kelly L., the manager on duty, went out of her way to make sure we had everything we needed, offered some great advice and was just a nice friendly person....

I have stayed at the Madera on two separate occasions. Both times the service was extraordinary. The room was spacious and well equipped. The lobby is very small (so the usual Kimpton wine hour was very cramped). But it is the service that will bring me back. I travel a lot and stay in upscale resorts for business. The service...

I expected a nice room in a boutique hotel in DC. I got that and much, much more. My room was so large that each time I looked for the bathroom I found a small room with an elliptical trainer. If I had the bathroom was around the other corner! The room had a desk, where I was able to...

If you enjoy the Dupont Circle neighborhood, the Madera is a wondrous little find. I first stayed there years ago when it first opened as a Kimpton property . Over the years the physical edges frayed a tad but the quality of the service was always wonderfully friendly and efficient. The recent overhaul has restored the panache. If anything, an...

The boutique hotel is well located steps away from Dupont Circle shopping and entertainment. The Firefly bar/restaurant on the ground floor had great breakfast. Staff was very professional but not friendly. I found the hotel a bit cramped with a non existent lobby. There was no room for a ramp so I had to lift my suitcases up 2 or...

Great location. Large, clean rooms with special touches. Friendly, helpful staff. The restaurant and bar downstairs are also exceptional. One pet peeve: the computer near the lobby costs $8 for 15 minutes. Why, if one is already paying over $200 a night? Just doesn't seem right.

Having stayed in many Kimpton properties in the area I already had relatively high expectations for this place and it did not disappoint. The staff here is extremely friendly (I even caught one of the housekeepers hit the button on the elevator for me as I approached) and the rooms are well appointed. I had dinner at Firefly a couple...

It seems like this older property was a conversion from residential at some point. There is almost no lobby, which is usually a Kimpton gathering point for their complementary evening wine and morning coffee. The rooms have a spacious living/sleeping area, but also has bathrooms that seem the minimum size by building code. The closets are oddly wide yet shallow....
