We stayed five nights at the Donovan House in DC. We liked it for the accommodations, service, and location. We had a king bed standard room and it had plenty of room and a great view of the street below. We often sat in the window to just people watch. Our bed was comfortable enough that I slept 8 hours two nights in a row! The hotel staff was very responsive. One of my complaints was that they did not have ice machines on every floor. Instead, we asked the front desk for ice and it was delivered to our door. No coffee pot in the room so it's necessary to travel to the lobby in the morning for your coffee. Complimentary breakfast came with our reservation. We don't generally eat breakfast so I was the only one to try it out one morning. There were plenty of choices including breads, fruits, hard-boiled eggs, meats, and cheeses as well as juices and coffee. Quite adequate and well presented. The location is great for walking to the White House (15 minutes) or catching the underground metro (three blocks) or bus (across the street). We did not eat at the Asian restaurant within the hotel but did drink at the bars both in the restaurant and on the rooftop. I liked them both. The opposite corner of the hotel's block has a great pub/restaurant named Maddy's (13th & L Street). Great selection of beers and full bar and excellent food and service. The lobster mac & cheese and the chorizo burger were favorites. We travel a lot and stay in a variety of hotels and agreed that Donovan House was a perfect choice for week in DC.
