Two Kimpton hotels in Washington, D.C. -- the Kimpton Donovan and Kimpton Mason & Rook -- are departing the brand's portfolio. Viceroy Hotels & Resorts will assume management of both properties on July 1.

Located on the city’s 14th Street corridor, the 178-room Mason & Rook will begin undergoing a facelift this summer and relaunch as the Viceroy Washington D.C. by early 2020.

Renovations on the 193-room Donovan, which sits just off Thomas Circle, will start later this year. Once the revamp is complete in 2020, the property will get a new name. 

Both properties are known for their food and beverage, with the Mason & Rook Hotel home to signature restaurant Radiator and a rooftop and pool venue. The Donovan has a rooftop bar and event venue called DNV Rooftop.

The Mason & Rook will join the Viceroy Lifestyle Series and the Donovan will be part of the Viceroy Urban Retreats portfolio. 

With the departure of the Mason & Rook and Donovan, Kimpton will have eight properties in Washington.
