I frequently have business in the Dupont Circle neighborhood, and always stay at one of the nearby Kimpton Hotels. Madera is my favorite, but I usually stay where the room rate is lowest. On this trip I paid only $134/night at Madera. On a trip a few months earlier the lowest rate was at Kimpton Hotel Rouge at $204. I've also stayed at Kimpton's Topaz, and the Helix is nearby as well. It doesn't seem that any one of them is always cheapest, so check all 4 on the Kimpton site - all 4 are very nice, and inexpensive for DC. Before you book, be sure to first join the Kimpton In-Touch frequent guest program, and you will get free Internet in your room and a $10 free snack coupon for the room mini-bar. The hotels have a free wine hour each evening as well for all guests, and cookies and milk in the lobby after 10:30PM. Rooms are large and very well appointed, with in-room safe large enough for a laptop. Madera rooms have a separate sink/dressing room outside the bathroom, which not all other Kimptons have. My room this time faced the street (but was not noisey) and had a balcony I could walk out onto. The Madera also has an attached restaurant, as does the Rouge, but not the Topaz. The hotel staff is always very accomodating and friendly. The only downside to me is that they welcome pets at this hotel. While I realize pet owners need places to stay as well, riding the elevator with a large dog is somewhat disconcerting. There is a wheel-chair lift at the front desk for access to the room elevators. The Madera is a 5 minute walk from the Dupont Circle Metro Stop, south exit.
