We might never have discovered this gem had it not been for the week-long power outage that crippled so many households at our home base. Demand for air-conditioning and heat-rescue drove the prices of many hotels through our already damaged roofs, but not so here, and kudos to the Madera and the Kimpton group for its care and sensitivity. Many reviewer comments are accurate. Rooms tend to be on the small side, but they are certainly big enough to satisfy. They are well-appointed, comfortable, and if you travel with rechargeable necessities, like computers (we needed to transfer our work base), there are outlets galore - and they aren't hiding behind furniture or curtains. Hotel staff "apologized" for putting us at the "back" of the hotel, but our skyline surged over the Cathedral and Georgetown University. (Front rooms have small balconies but you have to be a bit masochistic to use them in DC summers. Even our dog runs inside as soon as he can.) Bathrooms are tight, but ours had its sink in an enclosure outside, leaving only the business end behind closed doors. The staff is fantastic, and the help that Aaron, Denise and Raymond offered - in service and sympathy toward its many weather refugees - was above and beyond. (When we finally got home, the hotel sent an email to check-up on our well-being.) The restaurant is a DC highlight, but its breakfast choices are not extensive. Like the rest of the hotel, they are more than good enough. They are priced competitively, but, since the hotel is at Dupont Circle, there are more than enough alternatives. In sum, if you want to spend some days with a new family, stay here.
