“Very pleased with this newly remodeled hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 30 May 2012

We got a terrific rate at this perfectly ordered, newly remodeled hotel in Downtown DC. We wanted one room for our family of 4 which means 2 Queens: check. We wanted tidy high end touches: check. We wanted tasty and healthy food choice available for breakfast and dinner: check. The staff were all friendly and helpful. We are definitely coming back.

What we didn't prioritize was huge rooms, and ours was just right, maybe a smidge small, but definitely fair for the room price. We care more about quality than square footage. Also, the hotel is just a little further from the mall, Metro and Dupont Circle than we liked for the hot Memorial Day weekend, but again not a deal breaker given the quality of the hotel.

Stayed for a weekend at The Madison before starting a conference in VA. It is a very sweet hotel, very good service and a very helpful concierge. The location was super! walk or short driving distance everywhere to all attractions.

We parked for free or paying the meter right on the street or side street for the 3 nights.

I suppose that the area is more lively during weekdays. It was dead during the weekend. The room comfort, customer service and the nice boutique ambiance made up for it.

My husband and I stayed at the Madison over Memorial weekend. We travel quite a bit and usually stay in nice hotels. We really enjoyed our stay at this hotel.

Area-It was a close walk to everything. We walked to the National mall and visited a museum and also viewed the White House. We also walked to the surrounding neighborhoods. We really enjoyed Dupont Circle which was about a 15 minute walk.

Rooms-The rooms were well-appointed and very comfortable. The bed was comfy. However, my husband thought the pillows were too soft. The bath linens were top quality. We didn't have a great view from our room on the 7th floor but we didn't pay full price for our room so we were fine with that compromise.

Staff-Were super nice and always had a pleasant smile on their face.

We didn't have time to enjoy any of the amenities on the property b/c we wanted to explore the neighborhoods. However, the gym looked really nice and so did the restaurants.

Valet Parking- Parking cost more than I ever expected and we were not told this until the end of stay. I was thinking we would pay $25-30 per night BUT no it was $47 a night. I paid right at $100 for parking for 2 days and never once had to move my car.

I would definitely recommend this hotel to my family & friends! I too would stay here again but maybe try to find somewhere else to park.

Stayed for 5 nights and had a great stay. Everything looked great (lobby, bar, room incl. bathroom) and only had minor issues (one noisy spring in the bed). Food and drinks in the bar were great - especially enjoyed the cheese plate, the charcuterie and the sidecar. Room service not as great (well done burger very pink in the centre) but still passable. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Stayed here for 4 nights in April with my boyfriend. We arrive at the hotel at 3am but there was still someone to greet us, take the car, and check us in speedily. We booked this hotel pretty late through last minute.com, so weren't sure what to expect despite the impressive website, but we were not disappointed!
Reception and rooms are very luxurious, and staff are so nice and helpful!
My only disappointment was the excessive $50 per night parking charge, but this is to be expected in DC.
20 minute walk from the whitehouse, and a good Nandos restaurant nearby.
100% recommend this hotel, we really enjoyed our stay.

Ok, this hotel is in a great location right by the metro stop. You can arrive at the Reagon airport and take the blue line almost to its door. It's also a short cab ride to George Town if you want to go there. The cab ride is about 6 bucks. However, the price of the hotel is outrageous if you order from Hotwire.com. I paid $315 for a one night stay when I could have booked directly through the hotel for $270. I will know next time won't I? In fact, I am finding that hotwire prices are not as cheap and affordable as they used to be. So, start off by checking with the hotel of your choice, first. Then move on to Hotwire, Kayak and the like.

All in all, the bedding was lux, the shower was hot enough and I splurged on the snacks from the room's bar because see-food has that way with me. I will save discipline for a business trip. This whole trip was just a splurge to see Dr. King on the National Mall and buy art work for my home. I found Dr. King. Was not successful in finding any art this time around.

Oh, yeah, the bar at the Madison is small and perfunctory. Nothing more. But did I say the bedding was lux and so it was wonderful sleep.
