If I could give more than 5 stars I would. Premier suite was amazing. Three great tv's. Dining room. Living room. 2 person tub was excellent. Spiral shower was "unique"...although slightly odd. Front staff, every single one of them, was amazing as is always the case with Kimpton. Location is L and 14th NW, which, while a little north is placed quite well actually. Walk south one mile on 14th and you'll hit the national mall. Walk 1/4 NW from the hotel and you'll hit Dupont Circle, which arguably has the best food in DC. I wouldn't have changed a thing. I really appreciated the champagne and chocolate covered strawberries as a welcome amenity. Michael Porter and associated staff were just flat out incredible the entire stay. 1 billion percent recommended.

GREAT hotel, with flair, amenities, and GREAT staff and service. Room was contemporary, sleek, comfortable and light filled. Happy hour daily 5 - 6 PM offered tasty wine, snacks and Japanese hors d'oeuvres. Staff is SUPER! They texted me to see if I needed anything and were instantly responsive. Observant, personal and personable, this hotel staff is just remarkable. We will be back. Thanks everyone!

I have now stayed at the Donovan 5 times and have never been let down. The view is great, the staff are attentive/courteous/caring, and the rooms and amenities way above par. How many places text you every day to see hiw your stay is progressing and then may get into a texting string on details with a sense of humor?

Zentan is a great restaurant if you like off the beaten path asian.

Good selection of free papers, coffee
And the wine hour. Can't go wrong!

Can't remember the last time a reception desk genuinely seemed to care about my hotel stay. Robel was very sincere and offered all kinds of assistance in making my stay amazing. Will definitely be back. The two-person soaking tub is one of the best I have ever seen anywhere in the world, and it's worth staying just for that.

Room Tip: King City View Studio and above are the ones with the tub you really want.

Had a fantastic stay at The Donovan. We were greeted upon arrival by Kris with a pleasant "We were expecting you" and it got better from there. All of the staff were fantastic, pleasant and professional but also "real" and truly friendly. The rooms are comfortable and clean. I appreciated the fact that a room key was necessary in the elevator to access the lodging floors of the Hotel. Had a great and unique meal at Zentan one night and took the staff recommendation for a wonderful breakfast at Commissary Restaurant near by. Key component of the successful stay was the location. We walked to restaurants, monuments and museums. Even took a night stroll to the White House to unwind after our long day of flights and our late arrival. DC is a walkers dream and the Donovan is perfectly located to take advantage of it all. Thanks For a Pleasant Stay.

Room Tip: Enjoyed the view of the city.
