From a press release:

“Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants will open a new flagship 178-room hotel along Washington, D.C.’s lively 14th Street corridor in spring 2016. Kimpton’s Mason & Rook Hotel includes plans for a larger building footprint; a newly constructed 1,800 square foot ballroom; and guest rooms that will be some of the largest in the city. Intended to serve as a neighborhood hideaway to in-the-know guests, the hotel will embrace a sophisticated residential design and serve as an exclusive jumping off point to enjoy the District’s most popular bars, restaurants and boutiques.

Kimpton’s Mason & Rook Hotel will be located at 1430 Rhode Island Avenue, N.W.

Hotel Helix will take reservations until Friday, October 16.”

  • I figured something would happen – my parents regularly stayed there and this time, complained that it wasn’t as nice of a visit

  • Stayed there once in ’06 and enjoyed it. Not the best Kimpton by a long shot, but still a fun place to stay (there’s no such thing as a bad Kimpton, period). I can definitely see where the Austin Powers vibe of Helix no longer resonates in 2015. I’m sure the replacement will be lovely, but did they really have to use the Hipster Business Name Generator??

  • most importantly, will they still do the free wine and snacks happy hour?
