Room Smelled Like Kitchen...

Posted Apr 21, 2015
Pros: Excellent location; cordial/professional staff.
Cons: A proper ventilation system separating the rooms from the kitchen.
Location: It's in the center of downtown D.C...no need to explain.
The overriding downer about this hotel was that my room smelled like a kitchen throughout my two night, two day stay. At first I thought that maybe the previous guest had left soon before I'd arrived and had just eaten, but when the strong smell of cooking food persisted throughout my stay, day and night, I realized that they clearly have a serious ventilation problem. Anyhow, when I informed Loews Madison about the problem, I was offered a room upgrade the next time I stay at the hotel, but that's not going to happen.

nice room

Pros: Quiet
Cons: no breakfast
There wasn't a refrigerator for anything that we brought, just the juice that they put in there that they want you to purchase. Would've found a hotel a little closer to the National Mall. They don't have a continental breakfast either.

Holy Madison I love this hotel.

Posted Aug 8, 2012
Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet, classy, serene
What a true gem in downtown Washington DC. We stayed 4 nights and loved every second. The muted grey decor was modern, yet very soothing and cool in the Washington heat. We were warmly greeted for one of the easiest check-ins I have had. Arriving in our room, we were pleasantly surprised at the comfortable elegance of this hotel. A Keurig machine, refrigerator bar stocked and a wonderful assortment of goodies to enjoy for a reasonable cost. Towels were replaced twice daily, and the room was spotless. Great sized room and bathroom. The fitness center was well maintained and had many options, with chilled towels to cool off after a workout. Two lovely bars in the lobby offered a fine selection of beverages, and some yummy specialty drinks - liked the smoked strawberry. The entire staff was always warm, friendly, truly professional and extremely helpful. We loved the doormen too - a wonderful group of gentleman - who always met you with a Welcome Back! First class all the way, yet never stuffy, this hotel is a must for a visit to Washington. Great location too.

Excellent atmosphere and service

Pros: Close restaurants, Quiet
Cons: No free Internet
Very nice for a special family trip. We enjoyed the decor and service. Surprisingly, the wifi did not work in our room. Several calls to the front desk and a session with tech support did not remedy this. However, we feel like we got out money's worth even without this.

This hotelwas amazing.

Pros: Close restaurants, Free Internet
The staff could not have made us feel more welcome during our stay. They took care of everything. We arrived and there was not a double room available because the hotel is undergoing renovations, and the staff immediately upgraded our room to a king-size suite in order to accomodate us, as well as offering complimentary breakfast. They were very nice to everyone.
