I recently stayed here for 5 days while attending a convention, and I was very pleased with my choice. The location is excellent for walking around many of the sights of Washington. My room was comfortable and well-appointed, as was the bathroom with shower stall. The front desk staff were pleasant and accommodating. I would definitely stay here again.
"Great location "
Stayed with my boyfriend in October, 2016 for three nights. Hotel is really nice. Starbucks and two bars downstairs in lobby. Front desk was really helpful and friendly. Stayed on the 9th floor. Walls are pretty thin as you can hear people's tvs as you pass other rooms in hallway. We didn't have any issues with noise, however. Room itself was fine. King bed, decent size room with chair, desk, etc. Bathroom was a little on the smaller side but no real complaints. Wish it had a coffee machine in he room. However, hotel has complimentary coffee right in front of the elevators in the mornings which is nice. Parking is expensive within the city and within the hotel. As a tip: parking is free after 10pm on the street. You can download an app on your phone and load the meter from it $2.30 per hour. However, there are parking not garages next to the hotel that charge $7 as a daily rate from 8am-8pm. So move your car off the road to the garages for the day Saturday then retrieve back at 8pm and pay back on the street until 10 when it's free. We actually toured around until 10pm then pall went back and parked. Sunday's are free to park on the street. Overall, hotel is in a great location. Perfect to sight seeing and access to transit for heading to sporting events.
"It's OK. Just OK though. If I was going again I'd stay elsewhere."
I chose the Loews Madison in Washington DC because I'd previously stayed at the Loews Miami (which I think is a bit special). I was expecting much of the same being that it's part of the same chain but unfortunately that wasn't the case. The staff were all very friendly and I can't fault them at all and we (my son and I) even ate in the restaurant one night which was ok. The rooms are spacious and clean. Getting to the bar at times was a nightmare. There's two bars. One on the left as you walk in (the one they open) and a hotel bar to the far right which never seemed to be open. As a guest who'd been exploring the City walking for miles per day it would be nice to get back to the hotel, chill out, have a sit down and a drink. But instead at the time of arriving back at the hotel each day (5pm onwards) the bar that was open was filled with people who seemed to have finished work and were in their suits, whereby as a tourist having walked around Washington DC in August in 90°F+ heat everyday and returning probably not looking amazing it was a bit uncomfortable having to stand around these people at the open bar that has limited seating (all on high up stools) waiting to be served. They really should open the other bar for guests so that guests can chill out and feel a bit more welcome on the far comfier settees that are close to the (closed) bar) The location of the hotel is ok. A bit of a walk 15/20 minutes from the main sights (Whitehouse, Smithsonian Museums etc) but not too far. All in all the hotel was clean, the staff were nice, it just doesn't have a very welcoming feel to it. As I've said above, if I was going to Washington DC again I wouldn't consider this hotel.
first time at this hotel, excellent location for sightseeing and the staff could not have been more helpful. Will definitely be staying here again although we did find the bar a little on the expensive side. Would recommend eating and drinking at Claudias near the hotel
"Decent room - Surprised at the fees"
I checked into this hotel for a nine day stay as this is where my client reserved my room. The check in experience and the room were pleasant enough. I called to have the mini bar removed to which I found out that there is a $25 fee. After I had the alcohol removed and paid the fee, I put water bottles in the now empty fridge and found a note the next day that there is a $7.50 fee per day that I have personal items in the emptied fridge. While I would typically rate this hotel as average or very good hotel, I'm not excited about the fees that they charged.
