The Mason & Rook was the 8th stop on my 2017 Kimpton Journey and they went above and beyond to make the experience memorable. As always, the service was top notch and the property is gorgeous. Most of the Kimpton properties in the Dupont Circle area are older renovated buildings. Mason & Rook looks and feels new, very clean classy...

First time Kimpton guest, and needless to say I will consider them in other places I travel. This hotel was great! Staff at this hotel were incredible, and check-in was smooth. It's also nice that Kimpton gives their "Karma Rewards" guests a $10 credit to use at the hotel bar, its a great extra that other hotel chains should consider....

Thank you so much for staying with us and for posting a review of your experience! I know how tough it can be to be on the road for Super Bowl Sunday. Glad the 65" TV took the edge off a little. Come see us again soon. We'd love to have you back! Sincerely, Donte

I stayed here for 2 nights for business. The hotel is clean and very stylish, but the service was lacking. Requested a coffee maker in my room prior to checkin and then again while I was checking in. It never arrived. There was no extra blanket in the room. I called down to request one be sent up and it...

Oh no! I'm really sorry about the coffee maker and the blanket. We can definitely get that sorted out. I'm glad it a great stay overall. We can certainly do better than "spotty" on the service front. Hope to see you again the next time you're in town. Sincerely, Donte

My husband and I spent 5 nights at this hotel for a business/vacay. This is a great hotel! Location is walking distance between Logan and Dupont Circle's. We had an executive studio which is an 'L' shaped room with a large desk and couch seating. The decor is beautifully modern with a masculine touch. It is a benefit to be...

Love this hotel! I knew the old Helix and absolutely love the update on the building and the brand. Mason & Rook is a top notch hotel no matter your purpose for visiting the Nation's capital.

This hotel is just north of the White House about 1.5 miles. It is newly updated and has wonderful staff, a great bar, and the rooms are very modern and clean! Would definitely stay there again. Close to great restaurants and bars!

At first I was concerned staying so far from the National Mall. I had heard so many horror stories about how bad it is, just outside of the Mall. Let me tell you this isn't the case.

After a two night stay, I've decided that this is my favorite hotel in D.C. The staff is terrific, and the small but welcoming lobby is a terrific space to gather for morning coffee or an evening drink. The staff makes you feel like you are walking into an apartment building where you have lived for years, not the typical...
