Spent this past weekend at the Donovan with a group of buddies. We were in DC to conduct our annual fantasy football draft. The hotel itself is very nice - from the clean and modern rooms to the rooftop pool and bar, everything was top notch. The icing on the cake is Ty. He helped me at checkin and was... More

Friendly staff, comfortable and stylish room, free internet - as always with Kimpton hotels, I really enjoyed my stay at the Donovan. I was a bit disappointed with the breakfast, which did not offer enough choices for the buffet, even though it was quite costly (about $20 per person)

Five Star, Five Diamond Customer Service! They went above and beyond to make us feel at Home. Definitely comin back to The Donovan when I'm in DC again. Their rooftop lounge is also a great place to grab drinks and stunning views of the City. - Jonathan Gomez, Kimpton Rewards Member

After flying from London we were rather tired. We were greeted by a charming receptions call Tye. He was informative but could see we were tired so check us in within minutes and off we went to our room. A spacious room with a massive flat screen. Great bed, great shower and space to pack our clothes away. From a... More

We stayed for 4 days in a suite-- large rooms, but in the back so no view. A bit disappointing since you pay so much more for a suite. Also the room was a bit dark, so it needed more lighting than provided. Had to ask them to replace light bulbs, which they should do automatically without waiting for customers... More

We went for our 4th wedding anniversary and stayed for a week. We told the front desk it was our anniversary and they left a few goodies along with a card in our room. The shower was pretty cool, I've never seen anything like it. There isn't an actual door but instead a spiral shower that winds inward. They have... More

The staff was excellent, they hotel went out of their way to make a weekend visit with an old friend special. The hotel was clean and comfortable, but as with most Kimpton properties, it is the outstanding customer service that puts them over the top. And the cold wash cloths on the 100 day were delightful.
