We happened upon this hotel when it first opened. Now it is the only place we stay when visiting DC! The location is perfect because the best restaurants of every genre are right around the corner on 14th street. The food in the hotel was actually quite good too! The rooms are clean and somewhere between basic comfy clean and...

Overall, the hotel was really nice and conveniently located. The room was clean and modern. There was no tub in the bathroom; just a shower. The beds were very comfortable and clean. We went with two kids (1 and 4 years old) which did not seem to be the norm for this kind of hotel audience. Some low hanging pictures...

This hotel was a very nice hotel for the cost. I wish I could have explored more, but it was really cold. I spent time at the bar every night for snacks and to finish up some work. My memory is not so good, but the bartenders February 27th and 28th Monday, Tuesday nights were fantastic. They spent time with...

Thanks for the visit and for the fantastic review. Team Radiator is the best! I'm glad you got to hang out with them. I'm really sorry about the issue with the rental car. That's no good. Hopefully you'll get a chance to come back when it warms up a bit. We'll take great care of you and your rental car....

Had a girl's weekend in early February. The hotel was very modern. Our room had two beds and a spa bathroom. Beds were comfortable and the toiletries in the bathroom were really nice. We were on the 7th floor so had a decent view. Front desk staff was really friendly and had good recommendations. The hotel heard that my cousin...

New and very Kimpton; tasteful, slightly funky. Rooms were clean and sleek. The bathroom had a nice shower, no tub. Great bar downstairs, and an easy walk to numerous restaurant and bars along 14th Street. Very convenient to many neighborhoods.

Very friendly front office personnel welcome you to this hip boutique hotel. Nick, the interim GM, pours wine and beer every night and makes you feel like you are home while on the road. The hotel bar is usually crowded with a festive group packed in. The room was more than expected and the bed as comfortable as you would...

Great location, immaculate room, classy decor, gracious staff! Good at Radiator was delicious, and the bartender gave stellar service. I told him what I ordered for dessert and what kind of drink I like, and he created a cocktail just for me! Could not have been better!

Mason and Rook is clearly part of the Kimpton family. Room was clean, spacious, comfortable, quiet. Lobby area was unique and fun to gather. Onsite restaurant had a fair selection of food, and hotel is located in an upcoming area of the city with many restaurants nearby. Small glitches included computers being down at check inn, which was addressed efficiently...
