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. Located in the Logan Circle neighborhood, this hotel is convenient to accessing almost anything you might want to do - right next to the...

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 the first day of hiding my wedding ring, iWatch, and dressing down, I stood out... In a bad way. This spot was...

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...

This is steps away from the restaurants and bars of Logan Circle, with a Whole Foods a block away. The White House and other DC sites are close. The hotel's interior design is relaxing, cozy and super stylish. I particularly liked the art! Wonderful wine hour and customer service as usual from Kimpton properties.

I was in town for a conference at the Walter E Washington Convention Center. I wanted a hotel walking-distance to the convention but with enough distance to relax. Kimpton Mason & Rock was a perfect choice. I could return for the wine hour, unwind, then meet friends. Easy access (via public transport or even walking) to the National Mall and...

I love, love, love this hotel. It was a great weekend experience. The room was impeccable - big, with a sitting area, large flatscreen TV, amazingly comfortable king sized bed, and beautiful bathroom! The hot chocolate/tea/coffee bar in the morning, and courtesy wine during happy hour, were such nice touches. Pet friendly, with no size limit. I would 100% recommend...

I was thoroughly impressed by the service and staff. I arrived at 12:45am after a long day of travel. There was a problem with my reservation that Stephanie, Night Manager, immediately fixed and got me to my room. I will definitely return to this hotel!
