My boyfriend and I choose to go on a last minute weekend getaway and decided Washington D.C. would be the prefect destination since we had fond memories of visiting there in the past. This hotel was the prefect match. It is within reasonable walking distance to the National Mall and to many different restaurants and shops. If you need a suggestion of where to grab a meal that is close by or if you just need directions the hotel staff are very accommodating. The room was very nice and clean. The only complaints that I did have was that the TV and telephone did not work when we checked in. Thus, we had to walk down to the lobby to make the complaint since the phone was not functioning. Once the issue was brought up, however, it was taken care of immediately. The restaurant was beautiful but be forewarned that if you wish to eat there you must make reservations. When checking in we were told of the hours but not the need to think ahead. We were however able to get room service from the Firefly and found that the food was nothing less than exceptional. Overall I would recommend the Madera and would return for a future visit.
