"a word to the wise."
This hotel offered me an upgrade. I responded to the email for the upgrade. The upgrade was that I would check into my hotel at 9a.m. instead of 4p.m. Then I am told that there is a possibility that I may not be approved for the upgrade. I asked when I would know whether I have been approved or not. I was told that I would know at the time of check-in. But the time of check-in is at 4p.m. How could I take advantage of this upgrade if I would not know whether I have been approved for the upgrade until the time of check-in' If I get there at 4p.m., and I am told that I have been approved to check in at 9a.m., what good does that do' The time would have already expired. I was told that most likely I would be approved and to get there with the expectation of checking in at 9 a.m. I did so. I was not approved. So, I am pretty much walking around aimlessly for hours on end. Staff explains that the upgrades are not guaranteed and that they are at the discretion of the hotel. Hope this helps others' decision-making.
"Night out in DC"
The hotel is in a great location with very nice rooms! It was much quieter than we thought earlier. The drinks in the adjoining steakhouse were good & the servers very friendly! Our family including children loved walking to the White House!
"Nice smaller hotel"
The Madison is smaller than many of the DC mega-hotels. Friendly staff, very nice room. Location is convenient to Metro, when Metro is running :) My only beef is I found the restaurant pretty underwheliming; however, as a place to stay the hotel was fine.
"AS ADVERTISED!! (yay!)"
GREAT all tile bathroom! Awesome linens! Stephanie and Jose are fabulous! Walking distance to White House and B Too. Several breakfast/coffee houses close by! One of the few hotels I found with 2 queen beds!
"My favorite DC hotel"
I've stayed here on a few occasions and have always enjoyed my stay. Location is great, only a few blocks to the metro any many wonderful restaurants nearby. Beds are comfy, rooms are large, staff are wonderful. Only small complaint, no coffee pot in room. Need to go down to the main floor to get coffee.
