"A Pleasant Stay in DC - But Not 5-Star"
Well, the outside of the hotel was plain, and the check-in and lobby were almost non-existent, but the room was large and nicely decorated. We even had a balcony view out on New Hampshire Ave so we could observe the weekend activity. My only two complaints would be: 1. the extremely small, closet-like bathroom. 2. that I spent over $50 for valet service […] and the car came back with scratches and dings Wife enjoyed the room and location, so we might visit again. This is not a 5-star hotel by any stretch of the imagination, but in my visits with other "boutique" hotels around the world, I would give this a "3 out of 5."

"Great staff, good location, modern hotel"
Great experience from the friendly staff to the large, modern room. Very comfortable bed. Very clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
Wonderful time bouncing around a favorite part of DC.Genuine Expedia guest review
I stayed here for New Years and absolutely enjoyed it. They accommodated not only me but my dog as well. It is a boutique hotel so yes it is small but I like that. The front desk went above and beyond for anything I needed. I will be staying again!Genuine Expedia guest review
Good and clean hotel. Only possible negative is small bath.Genuine Expedia guest review
Wonderful surprise. Helpful staff great restaurant Washington, D.C. Is not easy to get around in but with the help of all the staff we managed quite well wil stay here againGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Good location. Service made beds but left glasses with leftover wine there and did not leave clean glasses or new bath supplies. One elevator did not work for most of the stay either. Front desk was helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great location for nice hotel"
Close to Dupont Metro and lots of restaurants. Comfortable beds- slept well.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Boutique Hotel!!"
I had a great overall experience at Hotel Madera!! My only issue was there were no sheets for the pull out bed and one of the staff member didn't understand that a person needs more than one sheet to make up a bed and he seemed hesitant to give me another sheet. However, I enjoy not staying in the typical Hilton or Marriot and my room had a treadmi […] ll!! Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
very nice clean room very largeGenuine Expedia guest review
The hotel is charming and comfortable. Right next to a fantastic restaurant. Location is great to get out and walk to see the sights. Staff friendly and courteous. Highly recommend it and can't wait to go back!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
We had the double queen room with balcony. The stay was great. The room was bigger than expected and the location was perfect with DuPont circle a couple of blocks away. Also, they had a complimentary wine hour in the lobby. The only issues were they had street construction outside so navigating in a car was hard and the lobby is small, but that is […] to be expected with a boutique hotel.

"Nice hotel location"
I was in Washington, DC on college visits with my son. We were really surprised at how large the room was. However, the bathroom definitely wasn't on the same standard as the room. The bathroom was very very small and outdated. That said, the room made up for it. My second and only other disappointment was the parking. The hotel charge $45 (not including […] taxes) per day. I found this extremely expensive, especially since the hotel could provide parking. I think it's ok to charge for parking, but I felt this price was an overkill for a guest staying in the hotel.

"Modern & very spacious"
This is a great hotel. The room was beautiful & very spacious. My only concern was that there was a small dead roach in the bathroom. I alerted the front desk & they said they would take care of it. The lobby isn't impressive, but the room made up for it.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Best Service I've Ever Received"
The friendliest, most helpful, most accommodating hotel staff I have ever encountered. Made my stay even more fantastic.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Wonderful, safe, and close to interesting restaurants. Valet parking and kindness of staff who know your name adds to very comfortable stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
My family and I stayed the weekend for my birthday. We had a great time. The hotel staff were very accommodating and friendly. They gave us great restaurant recommendations. One restaurant we ended up going back to twice - "Founding Farmers". The valet was pretty expensive but worth it. The service was great. The one downfall was that we have a 1 1/2 […] year old and the hotel wasn't really child friendly, it has a very small lobby, small hallway small elevators, and no ramps for strollers to elevator, only stairs. We made it work. Overall we enjoyed our stay. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
My wife and I stayed at this hotel with my two kids for two nights. Excellent experience all around. The staff were extremely helpful and friendly. The room was spacious and clean and the location is right near the Dupont Subway stop. My only minor criticism is that the bathroom was quite small. Even still, I would highly recommend this place to an […] yone. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

Incredibly nice and service-oriented front desk staff. Great people.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"excellent pet friendly hotel"
Pet friendly hotel close to dupont circle. One of the most pet accomodating hotels i have seen.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Big room with a balcony. Very comfortable. Loved the unique bathrobes (animal prints!). Outlets everywhere (check the side of the nightstands--cool). But the very best was the extra special assist at getting a cab. The desk called, the cab kept saying it was out front waiting but we could clearly see it was not. One of the desk clerks ran down the street […] to a more major intersection and hailed a cab for me. Talk about service. I hope to return. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
"Great Location Great Staff Great Room"
This hotel is extremely well located for restaurants and going out. It is extremely quiet and well maintained. The staff is exceptional. The room and bathroom are both spacious. There is a separate "kitchen" area with a nice refrigerator and table.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Madera, a Kimpton Hotel Charlie, we are thrilled that you had a great visit with us! The location cant be beat if you want to visit the Dupont Circle neighborhood or take to the Metro to some of the museums. Thanks again, Modi Ahmed General Manager
Great, convenient location. Rooms are nicely put together. Our room was unavailable at 3:30 that day - an upgrade was offered (but w/2 queen's instead of a king). Only hitch in an otherwise pleasant stay.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Madera, a Kimpton Hotel Michelle, thanks for the great review! I am so sorry your room wasnt ready at 3:30, but i'm glad we were able to accomodate you and upgrade you for the inconvenience. Thanks again and see you soon, Modi Ahmed General Manager

"Excellent Dupont Circle choice"
I've stayed in a variety of downtown D.C. hotels and thought the Medera by Kimpton was exceptional at a reasonable price. The room had a contemporary style that my wife and I found attractive and the bed was very comfortable.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Madera, a Kimpton Hotel John, a 5 star review! Woohoo! Thanks so much!! Please visit again soon! Cheers, Modi Ahmed General Manager
"A Close Get Away That Felt Like a Far Away Trip"
The experience from the room to the staff was great. the only draw backs were our room was right behind the bar/kitchen so it was loud and the the valet parking was a little costly. Other than that the staff was great. My wife loved the wine hour they offer each day. Being able to walk to great restaurants and shopping areas was a plus!Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Hotel Madera, a Kimpton Hotel Hello Jomo, I am happy to hear our staff gave you great service., They are true hospitality rock stars! Please visit us at the Madera soon, Modi Ahmed General Manager

Response by Hotel Madera, a Kimpton Hotel We can't beat your review! Glad we could me all your requests! Thanks, Modi Ahmed Generla Manager
"Great Overnight Stay"
We stayed overnight on our destination to SC. We were pleasantly surprised by this hotel. The room was just as it was pictured on line, very clean and comfy. There's a restaurant in the left of the lobby: It was in a very convenient location, so my Granddaughters were able to sightsee the White house and walk to shops and eateries. A nice balcony view […] even with the construction going on. It will be even nicer once that is complete. I was a little surprised when I saw the dogs in a room next to ours and others walking through the hotel on leashes of course. I must also say that valet parking was expensive. I hadn't realized there was a $53 charge until departure. I did state that and they accommodated me and removed the parking charge. They asked if I needed driving directions to my next destination and printed it out. Highly recommended. You won't be disappointed. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Madera, a Kimpton Hotel Hello CMarie, I need to thank you grandparents for living so close to the Madera! This way you can stay at the Madera every time you visit them. Thanks for the glowing recommendation. Cheers, Modi Ahmed General Manager
"First time to Washington, DC"
Great location.Wonderful hotel staff.Great food and loved the presentation.Great price for hotel. Pricey valet parking but that may be par for the course in Washington. Still better to park your car and walk or take public transport to the sites.Brought our own coffee maker for the room (better than schlepping to the lobby for same)Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Madera, a Kimpton Hotel We hope its not your last visit t o Washington though. We want you come back to the Madera again and again. Thanks for hte great review, Modi Ahmed General Manager
Kimpton hotel location is convenient, and room size is big and clean.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great for short business trip"
Great location, close to everything in Dupont, Metro, etc.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Customer service like the Ritz, but JOYFUL!"
Service like no other (especially Nicole!) always joyful, always helpful! Thank you for making it BETTER than home. Well located in DuPont Circle, walking distance to restaurants, shops, Metro, and by stops. Room 709 was large, über-quiet, and always well air-conditioned. Hotel Madera is my new DC go-to!Genuine Expedia guest review
"Hotel Room Converts to Meeting Room"
Do not stay in the converted meeting room on the second floor! There is a big wall filled with panels that offer very little sound insulation. Quite a noisy night once the people arrived in the adjoining room.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Location comfort and great friendliness and ease.."
For my purpose and daily ease an excellent, non-commercial location. Extremely friendly, efficient front-desk. The building fit into the neighbor hood nr. Dupont Circle & Connecticut Ave. (with a Metro entr. to Red Line - think Downtown, National Galleries, Union Station- , a couple of blocks away) unobtrusively like an modern apt. building w/balconied […] front in a residential area. It's next door restaurant Firefly, connected on the inside, allowed the comfort to stay in for food or a drink, conversations at the bar, when tired feet, a satiated mind did not generate desire to go restaurant hunting anymore. Large, handsome room, very comfortable beds, good amenities (i.e. umbrella, iron/ board, robes and more), completed all. For breakfast, beyond coffee in the lobby and the Firefly, there were a number of take-out/sit-in places at Dupont Circle & Connecticut Ave. doing brisk morning business for people on their way to work. Glass of wine at end of the afternoon in the lobby a nice touch, though hardly a reception, for the lobby is small. A young man, who could do everything, morning and throughout the day, engaged people in conversation and with warmth, humor and a big smile made people feel at home rather than like in a hotel. I observed: bicycles were made available to guests free o/charge to paddle around the neighborhd. Be forewarned: both N. H. Ave. and 20th St are somewhat torn up for road works. I would want to come back to this peaceful, convenient enclave. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Great hotel in DuPont Circle"
Awesome stay. The hotel staff was very friendly and helpful with directionsGenuine Expedia guest review
"A wonderful little "boutique" hotel"
This is a wonderful little "boutique" style hotel with a lot of style. The staff was wonderful, rooms very clean and comfortable, and the Firefly restaurant is very, very good. Walking distance from DuPont Circle, the Metro, and many other shops and restaurants. If you are tired of "cookie cutter" hotels that all feel the same, try the Madera. I'll […] certainly stay again.

"Close to tour bus stop"
We stayed in a two queen room and it was huge. Beds were comfortable and the layout of the room was great. It was close to DuPont Circle and we were able to board our tour bus from DuPont Circle. Front desk staff were very helpful.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Everything was good"
Everything was good except right at the end. I was pretty perturbed that I asked the guy up front for a cab, and he said 5 to 10 minutes. Maybe, thats me being inpatient, but I walked outside to the corner and had one in 2. It didnt seem like he thought it was that big of priority to find me one. The rooms are nice, trendy like most Kimptons. The bathrooms […] were tiny. It was a little overpriced, but I think that was because everything in DC was booked that weekend.

"not that nice"
Small bathroom and shower. needs updating. Off the beaten pathGenuine Expedia guest review
"Fun hotel with cool amenities"
Great experience at the Kimpton Hotel Madera. Loved the funky style and that there was a place to practice yoga within the room. Room was nice. Just one issue - the toilet in room 306 would run sporadically throughout the night waking me up a few times. Staff was nice and helpful. Would stay again if I had the chance.Genuine Expedia guest review
Great hotel. Staff was really helpful. I recommend it for anyone wanting to stay near DuPont or GTownGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"A great stay but..."
Hotel Madera was a great stay with the exception of the 50 dollars they charge to valet your car. Now you could tell me that I didn't have to valet my car but with all the surrounding streets under construction parking was impossible. Also because of the construction you had to wait a while to have your car pulled around.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Madera, a Kimpton Hotel Dear Mike, I am glad your visit was great. Yes our valetparking is $43 plus tax per night. We have checked our competitor hotels in the area and found this price to be in line with the area. We do offer packages that offer complimentary parking and we also offer discounted parking for hybrid cars. There are a few options to bring that parking down. Yes the city construction out front has been difficult the good news is its on the tail end of the project. I hope you do visit when its completed. Thanks again, Modi Ahmed General Manager
I loved my stay. The staff was wonderful and friendly. The restaurant was terrific.Great location!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Lobby could use some work"
The lobby of this hotel is tiny, which wouldn't be a huge problem except that they have coffee in the morning and wine in evening. Felt very cramped. There also was lots of construction which made a small valet space even smaller. Those really are the only drawbacks. I've stayed at many Kimpton hotels and generally have a good experience. The location […] is really what makes this ideal especially if you like to go to Georgetown. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Hotel Madera, a Kimpton Hotel Kelly, I'm thrilled you enjoyed the location of the Madera, definately close to great shopping and restaurants. I am sorry the lobby was a bit cramped during coffee and wine hour. It is a more cozy lobby compared to thoers, but that just allows us to give a more perosnalized level of service. Thanks again and please visit soon, Modi Ahmed General Manager
"BUSINESS MEETS PLEASURE"
