I was recently in DC for a 10 day business trip. The staff were friendly and helpful throughout my whole stay. They really took it to a new level when I mentioned that my husband was coming in for the weekend. They upgraded us to a beautiful suite for a nominal fee. This was the weekend in March that the temperature dropped dramatically and it snowed. At first we were disappointed not to be able to go sight seeing but we enjoyed the suite and the city views so much the weekend turned out to be a success. I highly recommend Kimpton Donovan.

Dear Heather P,

Thank you for the lovely review. I'm happy that the cold weather didn't influence your stay.

Now, we need to plan a new visit since the weather is beautiful and our rooftop is open.

See you soon.

I have been to multiple Kimpton hotels. This one was by far the nicest. The staff was very friendly. The room was absolutely stunning!! It had 3 60' HDTVs. An amazing stylish bedroom with a super comfortable king bed. I also loved the tub!! Not one speck of dirt/ dust in this hotel.

I used the Donovan for my anniversary. I could not be more overehelmed by the care and patience the staff had for my experience.

I worked with Maggie to get everything right for that night. I know I called and emailed a lot but she was always kind, courteous and so helpful. I cannot say enough good things about Maggie. But, I also must say working with David was a pleasure as well. He was always kind and helpful if Maggie was not available.

The room was exactly as advertised. Clean and a stylish design.

What amazed me is the cost free additions to my anniversary. Expecting extra charges for room set up I was pleasantly surprised to learn that the champagne, chocolate covered strawberries, and rose pedals on the bed were complimentary. Those were my requests but Maggie took it a step further and had ideas to add to the evening. Such as having a photo of us on the bed in the middle of the rose pedal heart.

I can highly recommend this hotel for an anniversary. Not just because the room was amazing, not just because all of these must-haves for an anniversary were complimentary but because the staff was beyond extraordinary.

I truly appreciate Maggie's assistance to make my night perfect. And thank you to David, again, for being a helping hand in the process.

We were in Washington D.C. for a convention, and the hotel was about 5 short blocks away from the Convention Center.. The outstanding experience for us was the warm, welcoming attitude of the staff, especially Maggie Arnold (ask for her).My husband joked about really taking us feel at home and having champagne sent to the room, and---there it was! (we returned it).

Room tip: Actually, it was expensive, but I guess not for the standards of the area.
