A very different type of boutique hotel..The rooms were very small. The bed was a 5 or 6 inch mattress on a stationary box. The lighting was very dim. The dresser was very organized but made of white plastic. There was not any work space in the room such as a desk. The ceilings were black leather or vinyl. The bathrobes were zebra print and leopard print. The shower was large but unusual. It looked like a spiral cylinder. After returning to the room at 4:00 PM, the room was not yet cleaned. We called to Housekeeping and it took an extra call and an hour later it was finally cleaned.
The hotel offered complimentary wine and waters each evening which was very nice. Coffee was also complimentary in the morning. The Lobby opened up to a very nice casual restaurant and bar.
Another interesting observation was of a possible "call girl service " that happened as we were returning to our hotel in the evening. Two rather ridiculous girls entered the hotel (obviously not hotel guests) and went quickly up the elevator that was waiting for them upon guidance and direction from a middle aged Asian man...That was very interesting....
Would I ever stay at The Donovan House or recommend this hotel to friends....NO!
