Although I'd visited the rooftop bar at the Donovan House before, this was my first time staying in the hotel as a guest — and I couldn't have been more impressed. The rooms are beautiful with nice design touches, comfortable linens, and awesome showers (I didn't know what a cocoon spiral shower was, but trust me, it's an experience). The... More

We just returned from another amazing weekend at the Donovan House. Everything was perfect. Our pets were treated like royalty. They loved the extra touches like the pet beds. They felt very welcomed. Thanks Donovan House!

Good hotel, convenient location, very friendly staff, reasonably priced. Rooms are clean and comfortable with a modern layout, although space for hanging clothes was a bit limited. My room was equipped with a huge TV, which is a plus. They offer paid wi-fi but it becomes free if you enroll in their loyalty program (or you are already a member).... More

From start to finish, a perfect stay at Donovan House! I've stayed here in the past for business and appreciated how special this hotel is; this time, my trip was for personal reasons. The location is very convenient, but more important, these folks completely understand that a superior hotel experience is all about the details. Our 11th floor suite was... More

This is one of my favorite spots in DC. It is convenient to the White House Area and is reasonably priced. The rooms are nicely appointed, the staff friendly and the rooms clean. I will look here first when I return to the city.

Great hotel lovely rooms very clean and comfortable. Staff great. 5 star nothing is too much trouble for them. Close to main attractions, the white house in only a 10 minute walk and the nearest metro is only 5 minutes away. Would definitely use this hotel again. Trisha and David brown United kingdom.

My partner Mike chose this hotel based on past great experience at Kimpton Hotels. Chose Donovan for location, and it was spot on. Close to everything. Great staff. Unique decor, very boutique. We had a fantastic corner room with a wonderful view of Thomas Circle. Great soaking tub and a cool shower. It was the last night for the rooftop... More

We generally had a very nice stay at the Donovan House. Our room had a great view, was very clean and had a great bathroom. My only complaint has to do with the air conditioning. The controls have not been updated and the air is either on or off. When on, it blew directly onto the bed. Not very comfortable.... More
