I went to the Donovan house for a night as a "staycation" getaway, since I only live about a mile from the property. It's the only DC-area Kimpton I hadn't stayed at, and now that I have I can say without reservation that it's extraordinary in its own way.
As always, the Kimpton staff were welcoming and friendly. I have to give an uber special shout out to Clay, who was absolutely delightful as a host during happy hour. He went the extra mile to make me feel special, and also acknowledged me as InnerCircle.
Gorgeous lobby, and one very cool feature was the projector playing old movies above the drink service area during happy hour. The room was large with big windows providing an awesome view of Thomas Circle. Lots of floorspace, deep tub and very cool spiral shower.
I will visit Zentan again and again, and highly recommend it to anyone staying in or visiting DC. It has a very chic vibe, a creative menu, amazing cocktails and excellent service. I had a delicious zucchini and tofu stir-fry; my mouth is watering just thinking about it.
I can't wait to go back in the summer and check out the rooftop pool and bar! Kudos to Kimpton - 5 stars all the way!
