Washington DC has the greatest concentration of Kimpton properties anywhere in the world.  And another property is now available from Kimpton in DC with the opening of the Kimpton Mason & Rook Hotel.  With this new location, they now have 10 hotels in the DC area!  As an Inner Circle member, you now have the ability to book your free night at Kimpton Mason & Rook Hotel.

Kimpton Mason & Rook Hotel

The Kimpton Mason & Rook Hotel is located halfway between the Kimpton Rouge and Kimpton Donovan Hotel.  Most of the Kimpton DC properties are located nearby, just a short walk of the White House.  The hotel is located at 1430 Rhode Island Ave NW, Washington, DC 20005.

The rooms are decorated to feel as if you’re “staying in a friend’s stylish downtown residence”.  There are 178 rooms at the Kimpton Mason & Rook Hotel that are converted from a former apartment building, which must be why these rooms are larger than most hotels in the DC area.  The smallest rooms measure at least 300 square feet.

Standard rooms have 5 different configurations ranging from 300 to 425 square feet – Executive King, Executive Queen, Executive Queen Queen, Executive King Studio, and Spa Queen Queen Studio.  There are 18 oversized, corner premium spa suites to indulge your senses.  These suites are a spacious 645 square feet.  You can see the floor plans for the standard and premium rooms here.

  • Rooftop Pool + Lounge

Radiator Restaurant

Radiator is the restaurant adjacent to the Kimpton Mason & Rook, and its decor pays homage to the 14th Street’s rich automotive history.  Radiator is described as a “food focused cocktail bar”.  Usually, with the Inner Circle free night, you receive a $50 dining credit for the on-site restaurant, but Radiator is not participating in this promotion.

On the plus side, Inner Circle members also receive a Chef’s Taste whenever they stay with Kimpton and eat at the hotel’s restaurant.  In the past, we’ve received some delicious appetizers like Ahi Poke at Zimzala or a plate of Sushi at Brandon’s.

Kimpton Mason & Rook free night

All Kimpton Inner Circle members are offered a window of time, shortly after a new hotel opens, in which they can stay at the new property for free.  I’ve used this benefit numerous times, including The Goodland near Santa Barbara, The Palladian in Seattle, The Shorebreak in Huntington Beach, and Hotel Tomo in San Francisco.  We recently used this benefit at The Kimpton Tideline Ocean Resort & Spa over Labor Day Weekend and at the Kimpton Glove Park Hotel while I was in DC for the BoardingArea blogger conference (aka BACON) the first weekend of November 2016.  And I’ve been able to book upcoming nights at the Kimpton Journeyman in Milwaukee and Kimpton Seafire Resort in Grand Cayman Islands for early 2017.

The Kimpton Mason & Rook free night benefit is available through April 30, 2017.  Unfortunately, while I was in DC Kimpton didn’t have any space available at the Mason & Rook, so I was unable to take advantage of the free night benefit.  The pictures look beautiful, so I’m totally bummed that my plans didn’t work out.

Space is limited for these benefits, so don’t delay in reserving your free room.  Unfortunately, you cannot make these reservations online.  Call the Inner Circle VIP Reservation line at 866-424-7667 to book your room.

I love staying at Kimpton properties, especially when they’re free!


More free nights coming soon from Kimpton!

Kimpton is also currently offering free nights at the following resorts:

More properties will be opening soon, and their free night should be available about 6 months after opening:

  • Amsterdam, The Netherlands
  • Denver, CO
  • Nashville, TN
  • Sacramento, CA
  • Palm Springs, CA
  • Bellevue, WA
  • Tempe, AZ

I’ll definitely be taking advantage of as many of these as I can!


But what if I’m not Kimpton Inner Circle?

Kimpton Inner Circle is earned by having 14 eligible stays or 40 eligible nights within a calendar year.  Kimpton often runs promotions where you receive double credit for stays, so you can become Inner Circle in as little as 7 different stays!

I’ve been able to get 3 free nights after 10 one-night stays with Kimpton’s lucrative loyalty program.  Read here to see how I did it.

I became an Inner Circle member through a status match as a Hilton Diamond.  With a status match, you need to stay a specific number of nights before you are eligible for the new hotel free night benefit.

From what I understand, Kimpton is no longer offering status matches effective January 1, 2016, but it doesn’t hurt to try.

The Bald Thoughts

It’s a different world in Washington DC for many reasons… Trump got elected President and Kimpton now has two more properties for you to experience.  The next time you visit our nation’s capital, I recommend checking out the Kimpton Mason & Rook Hotel.  I know I’m looking forward to chilling out in the rooftop pool while sipping a drink and soaking up the summertime sun.

If you have top-tier Inner Circle status, you have an opportunity to stay at new properties for free shortly after they open.  The Kimpton Mason & Rook Hotel free night benefit is available until April 30, 2017, so call to book your reservation now.  If you aren’t a Kimpton Karma member, I encourage you to research the program to see how it fits into your travel plans.
