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.

Kaouthar was great! I was not feeling good and she gave me crackers and soda. She was so kind and the highlight of my stay. I plan on definitely coming back when I’m in DC. She really went above and beyond.
