OUR HOTEL IN DUPONT CIRCLE

Stay in our relaxed hotel near dynamic Dupont Circle

Anchored in a vibrant, artsy neighborhood, Kimpton Hotel Madera is a convenient starting point for your DC experience — though you may just have a hard time tearing yourself away from the Dupont pull. Our unique boutique hotel sits in the cosmopolitan heart of the city and steps from treasured historic sites, exciting cultural destinations, grand theaters, and unforgettable memorials, monuments, and museums. Hop on the Metro just two blocks away to explore the Smithsonian museums, National Mall, and beyond, or just stay close to check out some of our favorite Dupont finds.
