The venerable Don is full of charm and character and the location is perfect for bar-hopping off 7th Ave. Rooms are good-sized and we had a huge balcony with a view (312). Staying here makes you feel like you've stepped back in time. I was not prepared for soft water from the shower. Definitely takes some getting used to. The a/c was icy cold and the bed was comfy. For $90 including free parking this was quite a deal. The lobby is huge and the staff is constantly cleaning, painting, etc. and the care shows.
I look forward to another stay here next month.
