Noise from Massachusetts Avenue can be disruptive
For some guests, The Madison Washington DC, a Hilton Hotel is as good as it gets in this city, particularly when it comes to a friendly service staff and reasonable room rates. Its location is convenient too – near the trendy Dupont Circle neighborhood in downtown D.C. And while it may not be as lavish as some of its competitors, this member of the Hilton family flaunts elegant silver decor (with bright red accents) that travelers describe as crisp, clean and inviting. Accommodations feature upscale amenities, such as Egyptian cotton bed linens and marble bathrooms. However, some recent guests describe the rooms as compact, and you'll have to contend with traffic noise from nearby Massachusetts Avenue. But at least you won't go to bed hungry thanks to the delectable fare offered at on-site restaurant Rural Society and the treats available at cafe PostScripts.
