I think the hotel is hyped up. The rooms are modern but nothing extraordinary. Parking is very expensive-more than other places which are close by. The front desk told me they don't do phone check outs anymore. I can't believe any upscale hotel not doing that. On the positive note- it is in the city center and convenient to many locations.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Seek another location"
Upon arrival a manager at the front desk was in a heated discussion with an unhappy guest. He was speaking so loudly I could not hear his colleague when I was trying to check in. When entering our room it appeared to be cleaned quickly, dust was on our bedside tables and it had an overall stale feeling. We were asking to be moved to another room, which […] they accommodated. The hotel is in a great location with lots of bars, restaurants and sights to be seen. I feel for this money we would have had a better experience at another hotel. Not the worst experience, however I was expecting more from them considering the rate we paid and the reputation of Kimpton. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Best hotel in Dc"
Amazing is all I'm goin to say. My wife and I had a great time there and they give you free drinks upon our arrival. Great everything things was awsome. Go and get yourGrown and Sexy on.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"A Hotel in Transition"
I never like writing bad reviews. However, while this facility is going through a lot of remodeling, it is not an easy place to stay at. The elevators are painfully slow for anyone on the run.Genuine Expedia guest review
John was great. He took care of all my needs for my stay and my girl friend and special occasion. Flowers and chocolate was perfect and upgraded room was ideal! Great job and will refer and stay again!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Beautiful Modern Hotel"
The hotel room was clean and comfortable with a sleek, modern design. The bed had a cool headboard that wrapped around to the other side of the room. It was also a beautiful view of the circle. Bathroom amenities were CO Bigelow and the European-style walk in shower was a fun. Lastly, they had animal print robes!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Excellent location. Excellent stay. I came for the weekend and love the hotel, the service, and the restaurant. I would stay here again. I believe the hotel is going through renovation on the lobby, but that does not affect the guest rooms.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Quick Washington Overnight"
Kimpton Prides itself on modern and at 59 this one may be too modern for me. No ice on the floors no ice bucket in the room - you have to call for it. It was freezing in DC and I could not get the heat to work. Due to construction at the hotel only one elevator of three was functioning which made the elevator wait long.Genuine Expedia guest review
"Great Place, Interesting showers!"
Second time for business, clean, very pleasant staff, on-site parking, good food, excellent view if you ask for a room overlooking the plaza. The rooms are very modern, more of a European flair.Genuine Expedia guest review
"A very pleasant surprise."
I was looking for a 4-star hotel near the mall, and Donovan House is just what I needed. Clean, central, friendly with comfortable rooms and a funky bathroom/shower. I arrived on a cold winter's afternoon, and the hotel offered complimentary hot toddies and wine. I would definitely stay againGenuine Expedia guest review
"I love this Mod Squad hotel"
We loved this hotel! Staffs was great and helpful! Lobby is not large but cool and functional with breakfast and afternoon wine and snacks. ONLY ONE elevator is working for staff and guest...there will be delays. Other 2 are being renovated. The top floors are being renovated. Rooms are cool and modern but still comfortable. We had an Executive king […] room. It had plenty of storage with closet space, drawers and shelves. Room lighting is for affect and mood...it can be dim in some areas. Bed is comfy with fitted sheets(which I love), quality sheets, down comforter and great mattress. Love the leopard and zebra robes...so I bought one! Room is well arranged. Bathroom is organized. Cool shower...wish it had a curtain or door. Loved the soap/ shampoo products. Great view from our room 611 of Thomas Circle and church.my husband ate at and liked restaurant.

"Perfect for Capitol rendezvous"
For a rendezvous with someone from my past, the spy theme of the Donovan House was a perfect fit. The name and style is derived from Major General William Joseph Donovan, the founder of the Office of Strategic Services, the precursor to the CIA. But more to the point is that the theme was welcome and fun while never being a hindrance to efficiency and […] comfort. The lounge had suspended space-age globe seating, and the rooms are equipped with a chair that hugs around you, the likes of which you would find in the lairs of super villains in early James Bond films. Our window view overlooked Thomas Circle and the McPherson Station metro stop was a few short blocks away, giving easy access to all of D.C., which was perfect for the photography project we were working on, and the reason for our reunion. The wrap-around, shell-inspired open shower, with its frosted plastic (sure, it's not glass) visible from the rest of the room, was also a much-appreciated luxury (although a larger rainfall shower head would have been even better). I would easily recommend this hotel, with its free wine tasting and friendly staff, again and I may stay there again on my next visit. Be patient with the elevators, though.

Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Flint, Thanks for your comment. WOW! What a review! I appreciate you sharing the story with our traveling community on Expedia. You nailed all the details. Sorry about the elevators, we're undergoing a renovation right now to spruce up the rooms and its certainly causing some delays. We'll be done in March, so come back soon!

"Great Weekend Getaway"
My husband and I stayed here for MLK weekend 2014 and we were very pleased. We loved the contemporary decor and cleanliness of this hotel. The lobby was also very warm and inviting. We had a spectacular view and it was in walking distance to nice restaurants. We would most certainly stay here again.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Thank you for staying with us during MLK weekend and rating us 4 stars. Our hotel has been newly renovated in April and looks even more beautiful. Please come back and visit us...
Great hotel. Central to all sights. Staff was very helpful. Wine tasting every evening and coffee served every morning. Hot cocoa and lollipops for the kids. Lounge area is ultra modern. Overall an outstanding hotel.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Alexandra, Thanks for your comment. Sounds like a great stay. Our location is awesome. My personal favorite, is being so close to the 14th Street Corridor where there are awesome restaurants and bars. We're also super close to the Memorials. Cheers, Abe Abe Liao Assistant General Manager
"Great spot. Great service."
Great place for romantic getaway. Love the rooms, the cocoon shower, and Zentan downstairs. Complimentary wine from 5-6 pm is sweet. Sets the atmosphere, very laid back, chill place for couples to unwind. Service was cool, although we had to call guest services twice to bring a coffee/tea maker. & also had to call them twice for spoons.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Traveler, Thank you for your note. You hit the romantic getaway right on the head. We're PERFECT for that "stay-cation" or "urban oasis" trip. Zentan is an awesome date night restaurant, not to mention the 14th Street Corridor being a hot bed for great restaurants. Cheers, Abe Abe Liao Assistant General Manager
"Cool hotel, great location"
Very friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is located in a very convenient part of DC, close to the major attractions and an easy cab ride to nightlife. The fun happy hour in a cool hotel lobby is a great perk of staying at a Kimpton hotel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Mark, Thanks for your comment. Our location is awesome. We're right in the middle of the 14th Street Corridor revitalization. Restaurants and Lounges are popping up everywhere, and its all just beyond the Hotel front doors. See you soon! Cheers, Abe Abe Liao Assistant General Manager
We have stayed at the Kimpton several times. The overall experience has always been good, with courteous staff and neat rooms. However, the hotel has developed an elevator problem. The elevators are small and because of that you spend an inordinate amount of time just waiting for one. In addition, when one comes, it can be so full and you have to begin […] the wait all over. To top it off, when we were there the last time one of the elevators was out of service. While I know this is a minor inconvience, it is not something you want to put up with in a 4-5 star hotel. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Ted, Thanks for your comment. Yes, I absolutely agree with you about the elevators. The full story is that we're renovating the machinery associated with our elevators. It's caused some delays for sure. We're looking for this project to be fully completed in April of this year. Cheers, Abe Abe Liao Assistant General Manager
Perfect!Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Traveler, Perfect! Awesome! Thanks! Till next time, Abe Abe Liao Assistant General Manager
The restaurant and bar was closed for a private party. They gave us a complimentary bottle of wine at the front desk. Excellant service!! I stay here each time I am in Georgetown area.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Traveler, Thanks for the comment. Every so often our awesome restaurant Zentan will be closed for a private event. We try not to make this a frequent occurrence, but it's hard to deny the public of the awesome cuisine! Plus the Holiday Season produces a lot of company events. Glad the front desk was able to take special care of you otherwise. Happy Holidays, Abe Abe Liao Assistant General Manager
"You can walk to anything from here."
14th & M is right in the middle of everything. Walk to shopping , great restaurants, and all the sightseeing venues . Hotel is great. Staff is excellent, and the social wine party every evening is a nice touch.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Edmund, Thanks for the comment. Awesome feedback! Our location is prime. Really the best in the city if you ask me. Really works for both the business traveler and the leisure traveler. If you ask me, best of both worlds. By the way, our rooms refresh is underway! New product coming in April! Cheers, Abe Abe Liao Assistant General Manager
"Convenient to my meeting location."
I had never stayed at a Kimpton property before this. I don't have much negative to say, but it wasn't the most comfortable room I've stayed in. I found the modern decor and styling to be cold and sterile. If you like minimalism, the Donovan House might be just the ticket.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Benn, Thanks for the comment. Loved your feedback. I think you're spot on. Good news, we're currently underway with our room refresh which will be completed in early 2014! We'll have a new and fresh room product to present to the traveling community. I think you'll find that it's going to add some Kimpton Flare. Cheers, Abe Abe Liao Assistant General Manager
"A nice hotel with an exquisite restaurant"
We book a room to celebrate our anniversary and they gave us a great service, offering us a better room and champagne for a little extra fee. The staff is really nice and the restaurant was really good for dinning and breakfast. The Hotel was modern and very clean. The location of the hotel was good.Genuine Expedia guest review
Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Daniela, Thanks for your comment. I appreciate you coloring the good and not so good with your stay. It really helps me create an environment of continuous improvement at my Hotel. I'll be sure to follow up with the departments in question. Cheers, Abe Abe Liao Assistant General Manager
"Close to all the offices in DC"
5 mins from the office, place to sleep. Nice room. It is kinda small but it is got everything. Hotel personnel are very nice. Especially, FREE COFFEE in the morning is a big plus.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Hi There Willy, Thanks for your comment. Seems like our staff really left an impression on you. They tend to do that frequently. As for the room size, we have a lot of options when it comes to Room Types. Many are over sized with great views! Check out the King Premier's, my favorite.

"Excellent in every way!"
Great hotel. Great service. The restaurant is pretty expensive, especially for breakfast, but everything else was top notch.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Jill, Thanks for your comment. Sounds like a great stay! I'll be sure to review your pricing comment with our restaurant team. However, I am fairly certain the prices are based on the quality of goods used for each meal period. Cheers, Abe Abe Liao Assistant General Manager
"Good location, good price, good accommodations."
At first I had selected one queen bed, thinking the room would be sufficient. However, it was way too small for my taste and comfort and the view was depressing (building walls). Thank goodness the front desk clerk had offered a double bed option, so I asked to be changed and was granted my request without an issue. The room was much more spacious, […] and it had a beautiful view of the city. The front desk staff was very friendly and accommodating. For me, the only negatives were the parking fee of $45 daily (not included in the room rate but I guess standard for Washington, DC), a wiff of mildew when I started the shower each time, the awkwardness of the circular shower and the room was little too dark for my preference. Nonetheless, overall, it was a good experience for the price. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review
Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Albert, Thanks for your comment. Sounds like overall a very good stay, but wasn't necessarily to your preference. I do appreciate the fair comments and rating in your review. As for Parking, our rates are set based on the local area. Can be pricey in downtown DC. Cheers, Abe Abe Liao Assistant General Manager
"Outstanding Customer Support"
We live within commuting distance, and wanted an escape weekend. Once booked, we called the hotel and Rosa, was awesome! She made our get away memorable, from arrival to departure. We've found our future getaway!Genuine Hotels.com guest review

"Close to really good...."
This Hotel could be great....location, branding, cool points, restaurant, and Kimpton touch all in evidence here, but it misses in a few key areas...they're small, but they matter for a business traveler; no desk/chair for working, no surge protector/group outlet for devices, no ice machines on floors, slow room service (food quality really weak compared […] to restaurant). That said, they have a nice fitness center, and solicitous staff, so there's much to be said for it....a few tweaks, and it'd be great! Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Travler, Thanks for your comment. You know what? I love these kinds of comments. Sounds like the functionality could really be improved. Good news! We've got a renovation coming up at the end of this year that will specifically address functionality, comfort and condition. Cheers, Abe Abe Liao Assistant General Manager
"Great location proximity to all museums"
The Donovan is an upscale hotel which is centrally located.The room I was in needs updating as the carpet and bed were shabby. The staff was very polite and well trained.Value for the cost of the room was excessive but it was all about location.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Alan, Thanks for your comment. I appreciate you pointing out our location. Personally, I think it's the best in the city. A perfect cross between business and leisure. Plus, the 14th Street neighborhood is really the hottest neighborhood in DC for dining and evening life. Cheers, Abe Abe Liao Assistant General Manager

We shopped. We stayed at Donovan House because it was closer to our planned shopping venues than the Dupont Circle area hotels.Genuine Expedia guest review

The area is good.. When I checked in the staff were not informative... She just hand me the key and that was it.. Didn't give me any information about the hotel... I specifically asked for city view but they gave me back view.... The room was nice and clean... I just wish the front desk were more welcoming.. Take your 230 somewhere else...Genuine Hotels.com guest review
"Construction and Poor Service"
Terrible experience. Arriving in the room to find earplugs should have been an indicator. The construction began with a jackhammer in early morning, and then window washers hanging outside the room at 0800 loudly yelling at each other. The staff was beyond rude and made personal advances on my girlfriend- including inside the room dropping off luggage […] when she was alone. I would avoid the construction and the rude staff.

"We love this place"
This hotel is design for couples and young adults...we didn't saw families or children around. My wife and me stay overnight at The Donovan. Convenient location from several restaurants (we dined at Mio restaurant, almost across the street in Vermont Ave.), and the hotel it is located just a few blocks northeast from The White House. Room was nice, […] the bed was just right, not to soft or hard. A interesting bathroom with an oversize sink, and a "seashell" shape shower with a translucent walls facing the room. Extremely friendly staff, eager to make your stay a good experience. We recommend this place if you are seeking for a romantic weekend. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review

"Nice hotel, but internet is DOG slow"
Stayed overnight before a big event, and needed to use the wireless. Felt like a bit like "back to the future" (back to circa 1996....) with files that took SO LONG to load that I simply left the messages open and loading......overnight. So if you have to use the Internet while you're there (a novel concept), think about staying somewhere else. Otherwise, […] an enjoyable stay and the sushi at the restaurant ZanTan was de-lish.

Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Helen, Thanks for your comment. Good stay, but seems like slow internet. It was something that were hearing from guest feedback, so went ahead and upgraded our bandwidth in the Hotel. It should be great for your next stay. Oh and Zentan, totally delish. New fall menu rolling out soon. Cheers, Abe Abe Liao Assistant General Manager
"Classy, though slightly overpriced"
Hotel's great location-wise, overall quality, add-ons, etc. But for a king-size room to be 200, it's not the W. Let's make that a little fairer.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Reg, Thanks for your comment. Looks like a quality stay overall. Rates can be tough in Downtown DC during peak season. As far as the W, their rates are traditionally much higher than ours. Be sure to sign up for Kimpton InTouch. You'll receive member only deals that way. Cheers, Abe Abe Liao Assistant General Manager
"Very nice hotel... but.."
Great hotel, but the description didnt actually match what we got. Planned a quick romantic getaway for me & my love. The description of the room boasted city views. What we got was a view of the courtyard of the neighboring building. When I inquired at the front desk I was told that there would be a charge to upgrade the room to have a view. WHAT? […] I was taken aback because I had a visual of what the room would be like to add to the ambiance, not to mention, it was listed that I'd have a view. Aside from the view, or lack thereof, the hotel is pretty nice & incredibly clean. I'd definitely stay again, but next time I think I'd call the hotel directly & verbally confirm everything.

Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Toni D, Thanks for your comment. Sounds like a good stay, but some confusion with the room type and location. Totally get how you feel.

"Great Location, very comfortable super modern."
Perfectly located for downtown DC business travlelers. My visit was on a summer Friday and Congress was on vacaton so no room service and late breakfast excluded me but parking was well located and efficient. Fitness facilities were OK nothing to write home to Mom about.Genuine Expedia guest review
"My new regular hotel in DC"
The customer service was great. I arrived 2 hrs earlier than check-in time, and they had a room ready for me anyway. The free water bottles at the front desk were clutch in the August heat, and the desk staff were not stingy with them. The room was very clean, and I like the modern style of the rooms, including the seashell shaped walk-in shower (it'll […] make sense when you see it), although I do prefer more water-pressure than the rain shower heads provide. The rooftop pool has a great view of Thompson Circle, and the Metro station is only 2 blocks away at McPherson Sq, which is on the same line that goes to Reagan Nat'l. The service at the rooftop pool/bar was good, except the Sunday before I left when the bar was closed all day and night because the Zentan staff was busy with a private function elsewhere (even the restaurant itself was closed). Not a good look for someone looking to relax on the last day of a business trip, and the only reason I held off on the 5 star rating for hotel service. Also, for some reason my tablet couldn't load the Kimpton Rewards sign-up page, so I had to use my own hotspot for data, but I signed up when I got home, so it probably won't be a problem again. I have stayed at a few hotels in the DC area, but I think I will stick with Donovan House for a while. Read moreGenuine Hotels.com guest review
Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Rebel Music, Thanks for your comment. Seems like an awesome stay. You've got it all covered. Sorry about Zentan being closed.

"Nice hotel downtown, close to staton and museums"

"White House visit"
This is my first time staying at this brand hotel and I am not the least bit disappointed. I was sooooo fascinated with the décor with my favorite spot being the sitting area to the right across from the check-in counter with the candles and throw pillows. I also loved the way I was greeted upon arrival and I must say many thanks to "JOHN" for making […] me feel comfortable and owning the issue of me not having my room ready at check-in from start to finish, constantly apologizing and even came and got me from the poolside where I was sipping on some Sangria when it was. Overall, the hotel is clean, modern, chic and outright fabulous. Read moreGenuine Expedia guest review

"Kind of Smelly"
I've stayed at the Donovan house several times on my trips to DC and I think this last trip was the last time. While my room seemed fairly clean overall it had a really strong unpleasant musty odor.

Response by Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel Hi Dani, Thanks for your review. Ewww....that's not pleasant at all. I can assure you this is not a typical situation at our Hotel.

"Not your typical 4 star"
This is a trendy hotel. Cute but for a business traveler make sure your room has a desk. It literally had a bed and a chair in the corner. Good for a leisure weekend but not good for business travel.Genuine Hotels.com guest review
