As a frequent traveler and Kimpton Inner Circle member, I am a repeat visitor of the Mason & Rook for one reason: they strive for excellence on every level. The property itself is newly renovated with modern amenities, a chic decor, and nestled quaintly off of 14th street where you can find a number of great restaurants. While the facilities...

The hotel is a little ways from all of the historic sites but it is a quick $5-7 Uber ride. The hotel itself is clean. There is a small gym and a cute restaurant with good food and drinks. There is an outdoor lounge area and fire feature. There is a happy hour every evening and bikes you can borrow...

The room looked out on to Rhode Island so...

I was so excited to stay at the newly renovated Mason and Rook hotel and it did not disappoint. It's a beautiful, warm, cozy boutique hotel, with a restaurant that offers an exciting menu. The location is great as it's in a bustling DC neighborhood. Great location, beautiful hotel!

Great stay at a wonderful modern, new hotel! I brought my son to DC for two nights and thankfully booked our hotel here. The location can’t be beat as its close to the White House, Washington Monument and Dupont Circle for walking around. The front desk staff (Jessica) was very warm and friendly, we saw her several times as we...

Hotel we had booked ahead of time lost our reservation. Was saved by HotelTonight app, for very reasonable price. Everyone at this hotel was friendly. Lovely lobby and hotel bar. Had a cozy homey feel. Really close to 14th Street, too.
