Whisked the wife away for a nice little staycation here in August 2016. We had their nicest suite, which was indeed sweet. Very spacious, nicely decorated with comfortable couches and GIANT TVs. The gym was serviceable, if small. Nice scene in the bar during the evenings. Room service breakfast was prompt, tasty, and a big pile of food. The rooftop... More

Mason & Rook is charming, modern, quirky and comfortable. The design and ambiance is luxurious and effortless, and it makes you happy! Checked in with my mom, sister, and seven-month-old, planning to stay a night in a queen-queen room. Maggie at reception was kind and wonderful - seeing the baby, she managed to upgrade us to a spa king suite,... More

Once again, Kimpton designed a great experience. From the moment one enters the hotel, one feels transported to a luxurious yet homey home away from home. The staff are lovely, the rooms are big and beautifully appointed. The location is ideal as there are many fine restaurants nearby. If traveling to DC this would be among my first choices of...

I stayed here for one night since it was close to my meeting location. I checked in late Sunday evening and had a light dinner at the hotel restaurant. The check-in staff reminded me to use my "raid the minibar" credit. The room and bathroom was spacious. I was only 1 guest, but did find it odd that there was... More

We stayed last weekend for a quick getaway. When we arrived at 8 pm, there was one person on staff, no bell person. They were "on break." We unloaded car ourselves - the front desk person said we could leave our luggage right there. However, it was right in the open in the middle of the lobby, completely unsecured. There... More

I booked a suite as I was to be in Dc for a week and wanted the space. This one of the most beautiful rooms I have ever stayed in. The spa styled bathroom is a work of art. I enjoyed the 65" televisions. Last time I was in Washington I stayed at the Hay-Adams. The entire front desk staff... More

Terrific hotel, staff were so helpful and friendly, nothing too much trouble. Happy hour and free wine a bonus! Also free Tea/ coffee every morning in Reception a treat. The rooms are beautifully decorated and very comfortable - with a huge Bathroom and super powerful drenched shower, real luxury.

I stayed there this last weekend. The staff was extremely helpful and accommodating. The hotel has been redone and looks terrific. There's a rooftop pool and bar which us an added attraction. The location is great with a lot of restaurants in the area.
