My review of Hotel Madera - a Kimpton Hotel

The hotel was quiet and sort of boho chic with large rooms, offering excellent value. It was convenient to the Metro as well as Georgetown.

Great Dupont Circle/DC location

The Hotel Madera was in a great location, just two blocks off of DuPont Circle. The room was large with a nice outdoor balcony. The appointments were art deco in style. The headboard was in a beautiful dark blue fabric resembling velvet and the furniture was all in a deep dark wood. There was a very comfortable seating area with a couch and a chair which had a nice floor lamp for reading. There was also a desk with adequate plugins and an internet hookup for laptop users. The vanity area was a nice size with a separate toilet/shower area separated by a door. They provided cool animal print plush terrycloth robes which you could also purchase if you wished. In the evening, guests were invited to the nightly wine tasting featuring wines of the world which was complimentary and served in the lobby area. The restaurant, Firefly provided excellent meals, which we sampled for dinner and Sunday brunch. The staff was friendly and efficient and we would definitely recommend Hotel Madera to our friends and would also gladly return.

Wonderful community place

The Hotel Madera is in a great location. Close to the Metro and nice shops. The hotel was fun, small and comfortable. Every evening at wine tasting, many guests would meet to share their day and offer sites and things to enjoy. The pet friendly policy was very fun. For guests and the pets. We also had a fabulous front desk staff, who treated us as family. The rooms were nicely appointed and had internet, very comfortble bed and pillows. Would stay again if in DC.

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 boutique hotel

I travel often, and the Hotel Madera was as good as a 4-star hotel can get. It has very large rooms (we had a queen deluxe with two queen beds), high grade linens, classy and funky decore, and free Internet access in the room (my own laptop). There was even a balcony which overlooked the charming street. The restaurant is marvelous -- not typical hotel fare. It is obviously a popular place to eat for many persons in the DuPont Circle area. This is a great boutique hotel within easy walking distance of many DC attractions.

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.

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.

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.
