We stayed in a studio suite overlooking Logan circle. The room was spacious and comfortable. The staff had a card and fruit platter waiting to start our special occasion stay off right. Would gladly stay again. Nice area with many restaurants a quick stroll away.

Absolutely amazing hotel: clean, spacious rooms and excellent service. This was our first hotel in our trip and turned out to be the best one! The location is very convenient: it is quite close to the McPherson Sq metro and on walking distance from the National Mall as well. Also worth mentioning -especially for the European guests, like us- is...

First, let's get one thing clear: the staff is excellent. Here's what's not so good: EXTREMELY low water pressure in shower. You think it's a little thing until you try to get the soap off. Huge HD TV in the room, but all basic cable channels except for primary ESPN are in standard definition. And TV has no input to...

I recently stayed at the Donovan for a week and I can tell that this is a nice hotel, the location is just perfect, in the heart of DC, 10 minutes walk from the white house, only a walking distance from all the city's attractions and memorials, the room itself is big and very nice, I had a room with...

Recent stay exceeded all expectations i.e. early check-in accomodated, high floor with city view upgrade, birthday surprise in room, availability of loaner bicycles for touring amazing local neighborhoods and of course The Mall. Slept like babes in delicious bedding on great mattress. The rooftop pool, cocktails and bar snacks were all a delightful surprise. This was my favorite DC Kimpton...

Beautiful hotel with extremely friendly and helpful staff. I made three changes to my reservation and every person I dealt with was especially helpful and friendly and they all had great attitudes. Fessehaye at the front desk was charming and sweet. He said the reunion between my daughter and me warmed his heart. And then he helped me change into...

The staff (front office and upstairs bar) were very nice. Rooms are simple in design and up to date. The layout of the shower was different / interesting but it didn't bother me. Like all Kimpton hotels, they too have wine available complimentary from 5-6pm. Want more? Their roof top is a great place to go! I would definitely stay...

Perhaps having the Donovan sandwiched between an amazing hotel in NYC (The Refinery) And a superb stay in Chicago (The Thompson) enhanced our views on the poor levels of service. That being said, we were really disappointed with the whole Kimpton experience and it confirmed our decision to never go with this brand again. Firstly check in - we arrived...

I stayed here after a flight cancellation. Staff and room were excellent. Room was very clean, comfortable. Although there are no coffee makers in the room I was told they will provide a coffeemaker upon request. Had to use the SuperShuttle to get to the hotel. They have no van service
