The Madison Washington, D.C.

Washington DC, USA

The hotel

A historic hotel that’s been beautifully renovated, The Madison Washington prides itself on comfort and service – both of which you’ll get in ample quantities here. Uber cool in design it has a good range of amenities too, including a fitness centre with floor-to-ceiling windows and his and her steam rooms! Very family friendly, kids are treated like the VIP’s they are with toys in the rooms, a DVD player and DVDs, children’s menus and babysitting service. Teens aren’t left out either; they get a complimentary music download card and access to a lending library of computer games. There’s great dining in D.C but one of the best restaurants is the hotel’s own Rural Society, an Argentine steakhouse inspired by the chef’s travels in South America. Delights include meats, fish and vegetables cooked on open grills as well as handmade pastas and fugazzas – thick-crust Argentine pizza. Wash it all down with a Cherry Blossom Gin Rickey from the PostScript bar.

They gave us a decent sized room, check-in was fast when we arrived at 10.30pm, valet parking was included in the rate, we had access to the Executive lounge for breakfast. Decent gym - 5 treadmills so I was able to get on right away and use it for an hour without holding anyone up. Some small niggles - no shower cap in the bathroom and the plug-points in the lamp on the night stand were jiggly, ... we had to try several times to get the phone to start charging, and checkout was quite slow. But overall a good stay and we would repeat. Read less
