Comfortable and accommodating

The Hotel Madera was very accommodating when it came to comfort and convenience. Traveling with two other guests, I needed larger beds to accommodate us. The Hotel Madera was practically the only hotel in the area that gave me the option of larger beds. I was also looking for a boutique style hotel as well. The Hotel Madera was just that and the staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of the city.

great location, lovely hotel

The Madera is a lovey ecco-friendly hotel, with gracious staff, complete with a complimentary happy hour wine tasting, and in the morning a coffee set up so you can easily take coffee back to your room. The Firefly lounge/restaurant adjoining the hotel was also a nice stop after a long day, although I did not dine there. My room came with two heavy bathrobes and socks for use, in the event it was cold. The location is superb, just off Dupont Circle, and to my delight, an easy walk to my favorite bookstore on Connecticut Ave. Lots of restaurants also within walking distance.

Kramerbooks & Afterwords is a short walk, open all night on the weekends for dinner, books, wine, jazz. Also along the same street are other coffee/pastry shops and dining options, and the metro is there as well if you want to go further afield.

Great Location

The Hotel Madera is in the heart of Dupont Circle. Close to restaurants, metro station, and numerous nightlife activities. It's a short walk to anywhere. From the outside the hotel doesn't look too appealing but the modern decorations and renovations to the interior are a welcome surprise. The bathroom was a bit small but the room was spacious and comfortable! Restaurants, bars, clubs, metro station and grocery store are all within a short walking distance.

A French-Caribbean restaurant is a short walk down P street. The portions are small but well worth the price!

Nice get away hotel

Had a quick trip at the Hotel Madera. My first stay. It was a nice get away hotel in DC close to Metro, Georgetown, and other attractions. In a safe location. Hotel staff were friendly and helpful. Hotel was upscale but still comfortable. Parking is by valet only and takes a several minutes to get your car back. Comfortable bed. Had a balcony room and enjoyed an adult beverage watching the fall sunset in the city.

Above and beyond what I expected!

Was in town traveling with a couple friends, stayed for 2 nights. Was going to book through [...], but found a signifigantly cheaper rate when I called the hotel reservations directly. The only real complaint I have with this experience is I was on hold over 15 minutes to book the room. The staff at Madera were very friendly and polite. Loved the nightly complimentary wine tasting at 5pm. They were more then happy to provide a late check-out. The room was quite spacious and clean. The queen beds were very comfortable, I slept like a baby. The room had all the amenities I could ask for, a flat screen tv (with HBO) a balcony, safe, fridge, mini bar with lots of goodies, plenty of towels, an iron, and internet. The restaurant downstairs, Firefly, was nice and the staff was accomodating. However the portions were a bit small for the price. But the food was tasty. Parking was tricky at first but eventually found a spot across the street from the hotel. Was not going to pay the the costly parking fee for the valet at Madera. You can park on the street for free on the weekends, if your lucky enough to find a spot. Overall this hotel is a very good choice if you like boutique hotels and you cannot beat the location. There are many different attractions and restaurants within walking distance. Im looking foward to staying there again soon!

Welcoming...

I must give accolades to all of the staff for great service. My partner and I felt very comfortable with our surroundings. What a perfect compliment to this boutique hotel. With that being said, the hotel is in a great location of DC and close to the Metro which will take you to all of the sights. Would definitely return.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

The subway is very close and easy to use. Parking is at a prime in the DC area. Let the car parked at the hotel and use mass transit. Not only will you save the enviroment, but you will save money. Less than $8 for a day pass.
