It's a Kimpton Boutique Hotel so the decor is cool. It lives up to standards set by the chain. Room was a little small. The best things for me were a mini-jambox and yoga mat in the room. The worst was that the free WIFI isn't free. There's a $17/day activity charge they add for local phone calls (really?! Who uses a phone in the room for that anymore??) & WIFI and something else bogus.
Room is recently decorated, spacious and very good. Apart from room and the good location there isn't much to the hotel.
Even just for a coffee or tea you have to pay various charges and will cost you ariund $8. Only valet parking which costs $46 per day.
We visited with our 11 year old and dog during spring break. The location of this pet-friendly hotel can't be beat - close to many restaurants, coffee shops and bars and 2 blocks from the metro which takes you anywhere very quickly. The staff here get 5 stars for excellent service, always friendly and helpful to make the stay comfortable. Front desk team is tremendous! The hotel is getting some refurbishments, so a little extra patience is needed with regards to painting and projects but both elevators are nicely redone and back in service during our stay. Highly recommended for families visiting DC and business travelers.
This was our first time staying in the boutique a hotel. The Madeira hotel was nice however it seemed little bit old. The hotel was a obvious conversion from a apartment building into a hotel and many of the features has not really been updated. But the room was clean you can control your own temperature. However the bathroom was small and the pillows or just to soft. It was difficult to get a good nights sleep more than anything when you travel you love a good nights sleep in a foreign bed. The bathroom also was small and the door for the bathroom gets caught on the floor mat the door needs to be fixed. But the staff was great and friendly, the wind was nice however it was not the best wine, and the coffee in the morning was good hot and fresh. The location was great but just a warning parking is expensive $45 a night for valet parking, really though for you five dollars a night is the average in Washington DC. You can find all street parking but I can be a little difficult but the neighborhood is safe. The area though is great I really like the area there's lots around close convenient restaurant but not close convenient convenience stores like 7-Eleven or other stores. But overall it was enjoyable stay I would recommend it to other people considering this area however next time I will try am more modern hotel even if it cost a little more money but still a boutique hotel.
The hotel was everything we needed it to be. It was clean. The hotel staff were great. My only complaint was our room was on the 5th floor, road side and we could hear everything outside quite easy. Especially the large trucks picking up garbage or making deliveries to the Walgreens on the corner. Woke us up very early every morning.
Mid-rises and mansions grace the leafy streets of Dupont Circle, where independent cafes and shops thrive. With a number of gay bars and businesses, this area is DC’s main gay neighborhood. Foreign flags fly high on Embassy Row, the stretch of Massachusetts Avenue from the Circle to the National Zoo and National Cathedral. At night, locals head north to Adams Morgan for drinks and live music.
