Cool decor!

The modern/retro 70's/Jetson spaced themed hotel was great. The customer service at the Donavan House is warm and welcoming. Like all Kimpton's, attention to detail to the guest is bar none. Where else can you get a cute loner goldfish during your stay in your room? The location which is close to Washington D.C. mall attractions was great. We found it so easy to walk to everything. My family really enjoyed our stay and the delicious Japanese restaurant at the hotel.

Great location, excellent staff!

Don't miss it! Close to everything, beautiful rooms, very good sushi restaurant downstairs and very friendly and helpful staff. For the money, I won't stay anywhere else in DC.

Fantastic staff

Bathroom sink was a bit clogged, shower drapes didn't keep the water in, but room itself was overall decent. The hotel staff was the best part of our stay at the Donovan House.

Donovan House

The rooftop pool is a great plus (but it closes at Labor Day even though it is still hot in DC through September). The staff were very friendly and the happy hour wine mixer is a nice touch.

Great stay and sightseeing!

Location is key here! We were a few blocks from the metro so basically everything was accessible. I didn't use the pool because it is not open in the evenings because the upstairs turns into a bar scene. It was nice to go upstairs one night for a drink. I stayed in the King Premier room and used the soaking tub which was divine after sightseeing all day. The staff was friendly and helpful.
