Most recent review:

What I liked:

Good location - easy to get to White House/Monuments/Museums etc, but also easy for restaurants just outside the centre.

We had an upgraded room (Tablet Plus), so don't know what we would have had, but the room was really nice.

What the hotel could do better:

The pool was pretty unattractive.

Hotel Description

Though a first-class boutique hotel would fit in well just about anywhere, it’s a pleasant surprise to see one like the Donovan in the District of Columbia. This is a town with a slightly staid reputation — but openings like this one show it’s an image that’s much in need of some revision.

And while the Donovan's look is as cosmopolitan as they come, it’s not simply a matter of importing some international boutique style to the District of Columbia — it’s steeped in local color as well. The hotel’s got an air of Sputnik-era cold-war cool about it, starting with the hanging chairs and modernist wingbacks in the lobby lounge.

The shiny and swanky public spaces are mid-century chic, and the rooms are half hideaway, half party pad. They come complete with Dean & DeLuca snacks in the minibar and Gilchrist & Soames bath products in the nautilus-shell spiral shower. Most unexpected of all is perhaps the rooftop pool with accompanying bar, a far more enjoyable place to do a deal than the traditional DC back-room — and Zentan brings delectable Asian fusion plates(and a bit of sushi) to the nation's capital.
