As always, the staff, the hotel, the amenities, the pool and rooftop bar, and the Zentan Restaurant were all fantastic. I always enjoy staying at the Donovan and also how centrally/conveniently located it is to so many great parts of the DC.

Very nice room. We had a great view with windows on 2 walls. Everything in the room was in working order and maintained nicely. No frayed carpet or curtains etc. Housekeeping was a little unattentitive. Every day we had to call front desk to get bath linens, toilet paper, lotion etc. They always responded and brought up the missing items....

It's a good location within a 15 minute walk of the Whitehouse. The rooms were clean and updated and there is a nice bar. The staff is friendly enough and there is a nearby metro. It is a convenient and easy place to stay and the concierge is helpful for restaurant and sightseeing tips.

I've stay at The Donovan several times because of the great service, location, amenities, etc. this stay was plagued by a semi-functioning air conditioner that was worked on but never fully fixed - sleep was hard to come by in the heat. I also noticed for the first time that the place wasn't as clean as normal. Dust on the...

The hotel was great and the staff incredibly helpful and accommodating. They helped us out with an extra-late checkout so that we could fit in our son's nap, all at the start of a very busy weekend. And the location was perfect too.
