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.

Best hotel experience I can remember

The Madera is really a class act. The staff is so friendly, the room was immaculate, and the location cannot be beat. I got a great price on the room through an online booking site package deal so it was also a really good value. The morning coffee and happy hour wine was also a nice perk.
