Reviewed yesterday NEW

Here's the thing: The hotel is stylish. The people who work there are nice and they try hard. But that's literally all it has going for it and that's not enough. Just because you put some mid-century modern furniture in the lobby and trendy food on the menu doesn't make it a comfortable place to stay. My chief complaints are...

I am a fan of Kimpton hotels (for the most part) and there isn't much not to like about his property. The staff were super friendly, the room was spacious and quite nice. It was dark enough except for the glowing green alien looking light coming from the smoke detector which seriously - put some thought into that kind of...

centrally located to great restaurants, galleries, and city sights. front desk staff was awesome along with bell staff. Friendly environment for meeting other guests at free happy hour and appetizers. coffee to go in the am and not those nasty small coffee makers in your room. sleek clean and cozy.

We were booked into this hotel as part of a group function and were intrigued with the hotel choice. The room was very good, with a huge desk, a sofa and comfy king bed and lot's of 110v outlets and USB charging ports. It looks great and the decor is satisfying until... You notice there isn't enough bars or hooks...

The hotel was very nice. Greeted right when I walked through the door. Everything was very clean and neat. Everyone was very nice and ready to help with any problem. Many little spots around the hotel, quick access to almost everything.

For my other reviews, I have taken great care. I only write after two or more visits. My reviews are comprehensive and generally positive. This one will be different. I arrived on a Wednesday evening for a two-day stay. I soon noticed that two lightbulbs were burned out - one of two in the bathroom and the only bulb in...

We loved our stay at this KIMPTON hotel.

This property is now redone and very well done at that! The Mason and Rook is now on a equal level with the other Kimpton properties (Donovan and Palomar) in Washington DC. We arrived late and we were very pleased to see they had a restaurant that was still open, even better that it had great food.

Thanks for this awesome review! Donovan and Palomar are great company. I love those hotels and their restaurants. I'm glad you got to experience Radiator. There's not a better bar in DC in my opinion. Come see us again soon. Sincerely, Donte

Loved our stay at this hotel. We stayed with our two children during spring break. The room was a nice size and the staff were very friendly and accommodating. Location is about a mile from the mall, but we enjoyed walking to our destinations every day.
