Another D.C. Kimpton is rebranding.

The Mason and Rook Hotel on Rhode Island Avenue Northwest — formerly managed by Kimpton — will reopen this summer as Viceroy Hotel Washington, D.C., managed by West Hollywood, California-based Viceroy Hotels & Resorts.

It is the second former Kimpton property Viceroy will manage. It will take over operations of Hotel Donovan when it reopens this spring as Hotel Zena in Logan Circle.

Bethesda, Maryland-based Pebblebrook Hotel Trust owns both hotels.

When the Viceroy opens, the 178-room hotel will include a revamped restaurant and bar with a glass enclosure around the patio for year-round use, along with a rooftop bar and pool.

It will also have more than 5,000 square feet of newly renovated meeting and event space, and a 1,695-square-foot ballroom.

Pebblebrook owns several other hotels in the D.C. area, including Kimpton-run Hotel George and Hotel Monaco.
