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.

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!

Nice Location, Bad Plumbing

This hotel is in a convenient part of DC but my room had several plumbing problems. The toilet bowl was badly cracked and was leaking water on the floor. In addition, the toilet handle was broken and when flushed water ran and ran. Finally, shower and tap water was not hot, just lukewarm. The room had some pretty unimportant things in it like a yoga mat, but did not have a coffee maker, which I did not discover until I got up at 5:00 AM and had no coffee. This hotel needs to have better maintenance and amenities to be worth the price.

Super value

This hotel was as advertised. Nice, clean, convenient. But one of the nice surprises was how nice and staff was. Super friendly and very helpful. It's really nice when there is a live voice on the other side of that early morning wake up call! And the location is superb!!

Disappointing

Not a 4 star hotel in my estimation. The hotel is very small, old and basically tries to put a veneer of "chic" or trendyness over those flaws, its small room size and generally cramped spaces which also lack any workout facility of any kind. On the plus side, the location is very good and the staff is very accomodating. Finally, the overnight partking charges are exorbidant; I spent less to rent an SUV for the weekend than I did to park for two nights at the hotel. I've been to a number of Kimpton Hotels throughout the country and this is the worst.
