Convenient location but not quiet

Room was large, clean, and comfortable. Bathroom was very small. Staff was friendly and helpful. However, the hotel elevator was very noisy every time It went up or down. We requested another room but were told this was heard in every room. It vibrated throughout the hotel.

Great New Year's Stay

My husband and I had a great visit to The Madera in DC. The location is close to many restaurants and a couple Metro stops. The Phillips Gallery is close by. Our room was on the 8th floor and had beautiful views. A large window provided lots of natural light. The bed was comfy. The room was clean. I had plenty of space to practice yoga. The staff was friendly and helpful. This was our second stay, and we will return. Parking was a challenge, however. It cost close to $100 with taxes to park for just two nights. This was through the hotel. I was not aware of the parking costs when I booked the hotel. I would have appreciated more straight forward information on the website about parking.

Excellent value

Our daughter was in the hospital and we were looking for a nice reasonable place in walking distance and Kimpton hotels all have a botique feel with great stafss and good value and the Madera was perfect.. The room we chose was spacious. What you don't get is a gym a lobby or fast elevators, what you do get is an at home feel with a great staff

Great location

So close to metro, great bars, and restaurants. They also host an hour long wine hour for guests in the evening - it was a nice way to unwind after traveling. Highly recommend.

Serviceable hotel

If you're a business traveler looking for a place to stay that is in close proximity to downtown Washington DC, then this is not a bad place to stay. The rooms are clean, if a bit small, and the hotel staff is friendly and helpful. The hotel is also one very small block from Dupont Circle, so the convenient location is a decided plus. You have many restaurants that open late into the night within walking distance and if you feel like going further, the nearest metro station is also only a very short walk away. My main quibble is that with the price I paid for the room, I could easily stayed in one of the larger, brand-name hotels. True, on the surface the nightly rate for Hotel Madera is much lower, but if you factor in the cost of parking, then any savings gained by the lower rate becomes eroded. Parking near Dupont Circle is a big hassle, if not nearly impossible, on a weekend; so you have the choice of either driving around for hours or utilize the hotel's overnight parking service, which is a whopping $41 per night. And when you add the $7.35 parking tax to the bill, you end up paying almost $50 extra for one night. So if you are a business traveler flying into town for a day or 2 on business, this hotel would be good value for your dollars. Otherwise, there are much better options town.
