Great hotel. Spacious rooms, comfortable beds, nice bathrooms. Staff is service oriented and knowledgeable about the surrounding area. The new restaurant, Radiator, has quality food and accommodating servers. Ordered the steak which was tasty, and to make up for a bit of slow service, the manager took 40% off our bill which was an awesome gesture. Iced coffee bar in... More

From the moment I arrived, it was apparent that the hotel was disorganized. I arrived at 4pm and i wasn't checked in until almost 5:30pm. Check in is supposed to be 3pm. I booked a premier spa suite, which had a bathtub...with no jets or spa like qualities. The next day the room was not attended to by housekeeping, although... More

Loved this kimpton hotel - all you come to expect in terms of beautiful interiors, good restaurants, great location, and excellent service. Beautiful library lobby. We found some cool books, one has a boarding pass circa 1980(?). Interior has a black/grey/brown DC-modern vibe that like all Kimpton hotels is comfy and sleek at the same time. Rooftop pool is small... More

The hotel was only open a few weeks when we visited. Everything was great. From the warm welcome at the Front desk to the soft warm tones of the rooms. Really well appointed room, bang on trend with decor. One of the most comfortable beds I have slept on. Great location on Rhode Island Avenue and 14th Street is just... More

The newest Kimpton in DC is a winner. Great location, rooftop pool deck and a great staff made my stay last weekend worth writing about. C.J., Jeannie,Theo and Iman were a few of the staff that made my weekend rock. Kimpton is known for great customer service and the Mason and Rook does it right.

We are fans of the Kimpton. In fact, we love them. We have some that we love more than others (they are not our children); this is not our favorite but still really good. The Good - room was super, we had a suite with 1.5 baths (what?!). The set up was great for our family - in town visiting... More

Thank you for staying with us and giving such insightful feedback. I'm glad you liked the suite. Honestly, I'm a big fan of them myself. "Just ok" is certainly not the level of service we aspire to deliver to our guests. I've reviewed your comments with our team and we'll be ready to go for your next visit! Sincerely, Donte More

We spent three nights at the Mason & Rook for our 25th wedding anniversary. It's a small, boutique hotel with absolutely fabulous service and it's in a great neighborhood that is mostly residential but also close to the sights in DC. I had stayed there for a big convention in its previous incarnation as Hotel Helix, and they completely redid... More

Spent 2 nights at Mason and Rook over the 4th of July, and overall enjoyed our stay with a few minor critiques. Pros: Location is fantastic, right off of 14th Street so your close to lots of restaurants while within 10 min walk of museums and the Mall.

My husband and I stayed at the Mason & Rook for two nights in mid-July and what a wonderful experience it was. This is a newly renovated hotel, only being open for 3 months tops and it certainly showed. Our room was stylish and spacious, with a huge walk in shower and comfortable king bed.

I love Kimpton hotels, so I chose the Mason and Rook hotel for our first few days in Washington DC in late June. When we arrived at the hotel, exhausted after an early flight, we asked for an early check in, as Kimpton Karma members, but the staff said they were cleaning one of their best rooms for us, and...
