Viceroy Hotels and Resorts has been selected by Pebblebrook Hotel Trust to take over management of Donovan Hotel D.C. and Mason and Rook Hotel D.C. as of 1 July 2019.
The acquisitions of the east coast properties adds to the brand’s expanding portfolio of “vibe-led “luxury hotels and its entry into the Washington, D.C. market.
Under the management of Viceroy Hotels and Resorts, the Mason and Rook Hotel will undergo comprehensive renovations beginning late summer and will rebrand as Viceroy Washington D.C. early 2020, as part of The Viceroy Lifestyle Series.
The 193-room Donovan Hotel D.C. will begin its interior renovations in late 2019 led by Dawson Design Group, the same firm that designed three of the Viceroy Hotels and Resorts’ San Francisco-based hotels: Hotel Zelos, Hotel Zetta and Hotel Zeppelin.
Bill Walshe, CEO of Viceroy Hotels and Resorts, said: “Washington, D.C. has long been a destination we’ve had our eyes on and we’re thrilled to expand our presence on the east coast. We look forward to continuing our valued relationship with Pebblebrook and also embracing and becoming part of the dynamic neighborhoods in which these two hotels are located.”
