Everything was perfect! They really helped me celebrate my boyfriends birthday; it was amazing! Staff members are kind, understanding, helpful, and caring! The room was clean. The spiral shower is awesome!

Transferred to this hotel after a bus tour. A delightful surprise. They thought of everything, cold towels on arrival, big spacious room, funky bathroom, beautiful decor, even a yoga mat. Room clean and tidy, glasses not paper cups as we had had just about every where else. Location walkable to most attractions but Metro station just 2 blocks away. Restaurant...

We had a wonderful stay at the Donovan for three nights at the end of August. We arrived in the early evening and despite missing the evening wine hour, we were offered a glass to take up to our room. Our check in was friendly, informative and prompt. Our room was spotless, well appointed and had added little touches that...

We stayed for four nights in August and we had come over to see Aretha Franklin, which unfortunately was cancelled at the last minute. On our first night we stayed in a small queen size room at the back of the hotel. This was part of our package booked with BA Holidays. We asked for a bigger room overlooking the...

My wife and I were considering spending a few nights at the Donovan as part of our golden wedding celebrations on a trip to the States. It was a hotel recommended to us by British Airways. Whilst trying to make direct contact to the Donovan by email we received advice from previous users of the hotel that they would not...

We stayed at The Donovan for the second time in August, it's an amazing friendly hotel. We had our room upgraded as it was a special occasion and on entering were surprised by a bottle of champagne and chocolate strawberries. As we had to wait 20 minutes for our room we also got given a lovely bottle of red wine....

The hotel facilities and amenities are excellent and the attentive staff enhanced the enjoyment on our recent stay. The hotel has a boutique style feel with there being many nice little touches to enjoy such as the Oshibori, which are the cold refrigerated towels to refresh you on arrival in the reception area along with the ice cooled water dispenser....

Perfect spot to see DC from above! Service was great and the vibe was wonderful. Comfortable seating and good drink choice! Good place to hang with friends for a nightcap. Right on the circle looking out to the nightlife. Can't wait to come back

From the very beginning of our stay when we valeted the car, and received our room information, to our departure, the experience was GREAT. Our room was spacious and the bed very comfortable and clean. The highlight of our stay was having dinner at the Zentan, which was a gastronomic experience.

Booked this hotel through HotelTonight which upon arrival was a Queen bedroom, however was able to upgrade to a King room for an additional $20. The front desk staff was very pleasant and welcoming. The Manager's Reception adds to the great amenities that are offered and it is situated at a great location within Downtown DC. I will definitely recommend...
