This was our first time in DC at the Madera, and it was fantastic! We chose this hotel for its location and trendy, comfy room decor. Our 2 queen beds room was very spacious and well maintained. As a family of four, we had plenty of room and were very comfortable. Our biggest surprise at this hotel was seeing four...

There are hundreds of hotels in DC from which to chose from but the Madera was a perfect fit for us! We traveled with our 5 year old son and we all were made to feel very welcomed. The great location in DuPont Circle was quiet and a short few block walk to the metro (red line). The room was...

My husband loves this hotel, and decided it would be a perfect base from which we could explore Washington and visit with our adult children. The room was huge, and extremely quiet... we were on the 10th floor facing the Cathedral. While the view looking straight down on the back alley and garbage cans was not especially attractive, the vista...

I really enjoyed this small hotel which was near practically everything. The bed was one of the best beds I have ever had the pleasure of sleeping in at a hotel. Getting to the hotel is a cinch since it is just a few blocks from the metro. In addition, at the time of my stay, this was one of...

I've never stayed at a Kempton Hotel. I love this place. It has a boutique quality in DuPont Circle. The room is really nicely appointed. This is a place you can relax, get some serious work done, or party with friends. It does not feel like your traditional Hiltons or Marriott. Loving my stay.
