    Very Good8.0
    overall ok
    I stayed here a night. Overall it was ok, appearance wise it looks very modern and clean, the staff were all friendly, and the bar area and staff were amazing. The room and bathroom was very spacious and clean. The only issues I had is that I had to wait awhile to check in, when I did they did not have the room I booked ready and offered a double queen room instead. I could also hear the people staying next door to us very clearly, especially in the bathroom (I will not book again mainly because of that).

    Another perfect stay.
    Another memorable stay at the Mason & Rook. I love this place- I won't stay anywhere else when I'm in DC. The entire staff are welcoming and professional, it's a great neighborhood and the rooms are wonderful.
