Our Rooms, Your Dupont Circle Oasis.

Where your DC days begin and end. You might say, where they come full circle. Calm colors. Soft textures. Open, uncommonly spacious rooms. Comfortably modern and fresh with thoughtful details and an endearing, quirky sense of surprise and delight.

Rest, relax, lounge, work, sleep. Mix up a cool batch cocktail from the not-so-mini bar. Honestly, the place is all yours. Look, we’re not saying you need an escape. But our urban retreats are like a breath of fresh air (Literally. You can open the windows for a refreshing breeze), with many rooms offering your own private outdoor oasis. Now that’s refreshing.

    Park & Play

You’ll want to stay a while.

Make yourself at home.

Boutique hotel with only nine newly redesigned and hugely spacious rooms per floor, many with large open-air balconies, others with windows that open (yes, they open!). Soothing colors and an overwhelming sense of calm. A place to disconnect …or connect (we’ve got all kinds of gadgets, who are we to judge). This is your escape, your retreat. There’s lots of space to do whatever it is you need to do when you get away.

Come and see our new glow. New life has been infused into the hotel through exciting changes at Firefly. We’re sure to reclaim our spot as a favorite and familiar neighborhood haunt. Music, laughs, the chatter of conversations between old friends or new ones invite you to join us for a drink or a bite. And our cool easy vibe.

The DC Essentials

Our address is the envy of the city. We’re tucked away on a quiet tree-lined street but a short, not very tiring walk to Dupont Circle and all the bucket list sights in downtown DC.

  • Dupont Circle Districts
    The neighborhood that’s near and dear to our hearts…and our front door. Traffic circle, park, neighborhood, fountain, historic district. And our home.

  • Georgetown University Universities
    This leading prestigious institution founded in 1789, the decade that the U.S. Constitution was signed, anchors this former port city, now a forward-looking, diverse community.

  • The White House & Monuments Landmarks
    Is there a more famous home in the world? Occupied by every president since John Adams (1800), it’s one of those things you just need to take a photo of when you’re here.

Meetings

Small, exclusive, intimate. That’s the name of the game at Hotel Madera. You know those huge ballrooms with flexible walls that can host hundreds of people? You won’t find any of those here. What you can expect is personalized experience for your event and a calming escape for your guests. What we lack in size, we more than make up for in service, atmosphere, character, and just about everything else.
