Great Family stop

Would recommend Tue, Aug 18, 2015
This hotel met expectations. The staff was fantastic and the room was great. We wished the lobby had been bigger to sit in. It's basically one bench and a high bar table. If you want to hang out only in your room, you are set!

Great location

Would recommend Wed, Jul 8, 2015
We enjoyed our stay but 2 things stand out. One the bathroom, which only had a toilet and tub/shower in it way way too small. The other is that we were in the back of the hotel and could hear all of the garbage trucks and activity around the garbage bin. The location really made up for those short comings as well as the staff, who were very pleasant and very welcoming.

Great business home away from home

Would recommend Tue, Mar 10, 2015
Room large, clean, updated & had what I needed. Staff friendly & helpful, bringing extra desk chair for colleague who worked with me on a snow day. Restaurant exceeded expectations. Fresh coffee in lobby was very good (no coffee maker in room that made it OK). Will not hesitate to rebook. Steve, Boulder, CO

Great Hotel! We Would Love to Return Again Soon.

Would recommend Tue, Feb 3, 2015
My fiance and I were having a really tough travel day that ended up actually pouring over into the wee hours of the morning. It wasn't until after midnight that we finally checked into our hotel - the Madera. Michele at the check-in counter was someone that I will never forget! I couldn't believe how kind, patient and accommodating she was, not only to us, but to other people who were actually not kind to her. To us, she was the light at the end of the tunnel. Our hotel room was extremely comfortable. We loved all of the amenities and the breakfast at the restaurant downstairs. Thank you all so much for making our night so much better. We will be sure to return to the Madera on our next trip to Washington D.C.

Time saver

Figure out where you are going to park ahead of time if you are driving or have a rental car.

Best hotel experience I can remember

Would recommend Mon, Dec 8, 2014
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.

Dining

Ping Pong Dim Sum is a great spot for dinner- make sure you have a reservation though! They get booked up fast!

it not very bad...

Would recommend Tue, Nov 4, 2014
I arrived at Madera at midnight on beginning of November 2014. The receptionist was very cheerful but she could not find my reservation and ask her manager to help her. The manager, she came, no smiling, no "hello, welcome.. We say" hello" but she did not say anyhting... She just try to solve problem. I don like her behavior. I except happier, more cheerful reception manager. The room is clean and big. However, although hotel is expensive, there is no coffee maker in the room. There should be at least a coffee maker to get hot drinks in the room in cold nights. Staffs in the restaurant section are cheerful, talkative. you can get everything on time. You dont wait too long to eat.

Time saver

it is close to dupont metro station. so, you can go where ever you want from dupont M.

Experience was very positive. Interestingly enough, the hotel boiler broke down and there was no hot water which caused many guests to complain. The staff was responsive, and very apologetic. While there was really nothing they could do the attitude of the staff really helped! I was really impressed!

Dining

The closest place to eat was very. very pricey.
