I live in South Central PA, so Washington D.C. has become the perfect weekend getaway destination. When I got a Kimpton InTouch Exclusive email about the opening of the Donovan House in our nation's captial (with an accompanying and very generous special offer on room prices!), I immediately booked a stay! When I emailed my boyfriend the link for hotel photos he replied with, "I'm not sure we're fancy enough for this place..." (First-time Kimpton nerves, haha!) What he didn't realize, but I knew, was that the aesthetics might look out of our league but the staff and atmosphere ALWAYS make everyone feel right at home. Hands down, Kimpton staff are the most genuinely kind and friendly service staff I have ever encountered. The staff at the Donovan House further proved that mettle. Our room was ready early, so we were able to check in right away. The room was fantastic. Modern and clean but definitely kind of sexy, what with the purple accents and leather headboard. The rooftop pool was an added bonus, particularly because the weather was HOT the weekend we were there. At night, we enjoyed a few drinks by the pool with other hotel guests; club music playing but definitely more sophistocated than a club. Wine hour is a great place to meet new people; we were able to connect with another young couple staying at the hotel. Who doesn't love making new friends?! For the duration of our trip, we were able to just relax and enjoy the city and the neighborhood, knowing we got to go "home" to a FABULOUS hotel room later. At the end of our stay, we were plotting ways to stay there permanently; neither of us wanted to leave.
