Wasn't invited to the party next door

We were there for Jon Stewart's rally. It was our first trip to DC so we walked the mall and city and enjoyed that part of our stay. The room was nice but the walls were paper thin and we did not get much sleep due to the two day party next door. We did complain about the noise the first night but the party continued until 3am. We had to be up at 4am to insure a good spot at the rally so we thought no bigger we will catch up on our sleep the next night. That didn't happen, the party in the room next door went on until 6am that night. My suggestion to the hotel is that when they book a private party do not put guest who are not attending that particular event in rooms adjacent to those that are attending the event. We might have enjoyed our stay a little more if we were not so tired from lack of sleep. For the price we expected not to be able to hear the conversations in the next room.

Nice average hotel

Nothing great or terrible about this place. Not a four star place. it is clean and a bit dated. It allows pets which I did not know or I would not have stayed if I was aware. About three blocks from the Metro. I expected more from a Loews Hotel.

Good business place

I was in D.C. for business and the hotel was a very good place to retire at the end of the day. The scenic view and reading nook were not whatI expected but overall it was a nice experience.

It would be nice to have an ice machine but the staff had a bucket of ice at our door quickly every time we asked.

Perfect Time

We were in town for a family event. Our days were taken up with sightseeing. Always having a taxi in front of the hotel was a major plus. The only thing missing was the fact that we didn't have the time to explore where small restaurants might be in the vicinity. Will definitely return to this hotel. I have stayed in a Loews in Orlando and you can't beat the service and staff. Congratulations!

Very nice place to stay

The hotel offered very good service, extremely comfortable beds, a convenient location, and is in general a very pleasant place to stay. The restaurant in hotel was expensive, but Caribou Cafe, across the street, was good for a much less pricey breakfast, and there were other restaurants in the vicinity. A big plus was the exhibit at the National Geographic Museum, a short 2-block walk from the hotel, of the Terra Cotta Warriors from China. The exhibit was sold out but the concierge at the hotel had tickets available so we were able to go.

Fantastic Location

I enjoyed my stay. Other than the waste pickup truck that arrived outside very early every morning to handle a large dumpster and which caused a noise akin to the city getting bombed, everything else was perfect. After the first morning and once I knew what was causing the noise, I was only annoyed rather than panicked. I especially appreciated the very helpful and professional staff.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

You are staying so close to the monuments and access to the subway. Cab fares were expensive and inconsistent so it would be beneficial if you can walk or learn the subway system. Ask the Concierge for help and a map.

50th Birthday Treat!

We went to Washington DC for my husband's 50th birthday...which happened to fall on New Years Eve. The service at the Madison was excellent! Staff was very polite and attentive, they recommeded restaurants, suggested sightseeing options...very helpfull! We had the Non Smoking room with a King Bed. Room was small and clean - perfect for the 2 of us. Walls were a little thin and noise carried (you could hear doors opening and closing down the hall, the neighbors toiletd flushing...A fan in the bathroom would have been nice to help cover some of the noises... Newspapers were delivered each morning under our door, as well as noticies of hotel events. A refrigerator to use for personal items would be nice- We would definatley use this hotel again!

Entertainment tip: Short drive from hotel

We had dinner at Madam's Organ in the Adam Morgan section of town. ($7 cab ride +/-) What a fun place! for Soul food and Live music. We were there on Bluegrass Wednesday and had a wonderful and affordable time! (dinner prices ranged from 6-14$) There is little dining within walking distance of the hotel ...might as well go out. Adam Morgan and Georgetown both had pleanty of dining options..the $ spent on the cab was welll worth it!
