Stayed here one night on business. Staff very courteous, room very clean although a little on the small side. No ice bucket in the room, but the water bottles by the elevator were a nice touch. You can walk to the White House, Embassies, etc which was very nice.

This hotel is very nice...great service and very friendly staff...room was very nice, well appointed, clean and the bed very comfortable. Unfortunately we had 2 negative experiences that tarnished what otherwise would have been an exceptional stay. At 2 am on our first night, the fire alarm went off and we were forced to evacuate the hotel. Luckily for all it was a false alarm. We did not ever get any explanation or apology. 2) on checkout I was billed an extra $100 for valet parking. I did not have a car and it was removed once I pointed it out, but it left a bad taste in my mouth as I left.

I loved my stay at The Madison (with one exception, see below)
The room itself (king bed) was very comfy and I had NO complaints about the room. (LOVED the shower!)
The hotel staff (with one exception, see below) were awesome. The receptionists, doormen, and concierge staff were all absolutely amazing!
I'm a tourist and the location was great! Just three blocks from the McPherson Metro station made this an easy arrival from Reagan, and an easy departure point for my adventures!

My only (and this is a minor issue) complaint is with the bartender. He was slow and didn't know his drinks.

Would I stay here again? Yes!!

Room Tip: My room was 12th floor, near the elevator, and I didn't hear a thing!

This is a classic old hotel that has been renovated very well. Great location just NE of the White House and not too far West from the convention center - just a brief walk away. Beautiful rooms and public areas. Great breakfast and the service was wonderful. A little on the pricey side, but the location and property is very nice.

We arrived in August for our journey to the nation's capital. We booked two rooms in the Madison through Priceline and we were very happy to get each room at less than $100 a day. We had done our homework and knew that based on our selection, we would end up with the Madison when bidding. It looked good from pictures and reviews, but our experience exceeded all of that.

For starters, it's in a great location. Close to everything in DC by car, metro, cab or walking (for some things). It's also a nice neighborhood.

From the second we checked in through the moment we checked out, we received excellent service that you would expect from a Fairmont or Ritz. Everyone from the front desk to people that dropped off ice buckets in the room.

Speaking of the room, we needed adjoining rooms and we got them. In fact, they upgraded one of the two into a one-bedroom suite, effectively giving us a 2-bedroom unit with a living room and kitchen table. The rooms were beautifully appointed, the materials were expensive, the bedding and furniture very comfortable and all were up-to-date and in great condition.

We couldn't think of anything about our stay that could have been better.

I had a short but very good stay at the Madison. It's well situated downtown and the decor was right up my alley. Nice amenities: good bath products and hairdryer, ironing board and iron, keurig Coffee maker, and the umbrella came in handy for some unexpected rain. Notably, the wifi and tv also worked great--I had some issues with wifi at another nearby hotel. Staff was attentive and helpful. Overall, a great choice for DC. I would stay here again.
