    location, close to attractions. Like that they upgraded our room. Friendly Staff.

    Charge for Coffee. No Ice machine, Room could use TLC on Baseboards and caulk in Bathroom. Broken Coffee Table.

    The hotel is very modern and in a nice location close to the main attractions in DC. The staff were friendly and the room was exceptionally clean.

    We were given a disabled room which meant we did not have a room with the signature shower which was a major disappointment.

    The last time I saw my credit card was when I was checking in. It was the only time I've ever lost it.

  • Couple

    The hotel was around very nice and comfortable. We enjoyed the modern décor. Hotel is centrally located and in close walking distance to the metro. The staff were also very helpful. For the price it is a very good deal.

    We founded it outrageous that the hotel charges for the coffee you brew yourself in the room. We also thought that the hotel parking was expensive and believe internet access should be free for all hotel guests.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    I found it to be contemporary, clean and comfortable. Especially liked the dinning facilities.

  • Couple
    6.2

    The staff at the Donovan House was incredible. Very helpful and responsive to all of our needs.

    There were several parties on our floor both nights that we stayed in the hotel making it nearly impossible to get/stay asleep. It seemed like more of a party hotel than anything.

  • Couple
    10.0

    The hotel is very boutique and posh. The staff was extremely friendly and responsive to all accomodations. Checkout is at 12 which is nice after a long evening out in the town. Overall, I was impressed and enjoyed my stay.

  • Couple
    9.2

    The person at the front desk recomended a wonderful Italian place close by. That was nice to get the referal as I am unable to enjoy sushi.

    Parking charges were unexpected.

  • Family with children

  • Couple

    Wonderful hotel and rooms, incredibly helpful and kind staff, location really good both for bussiness and sightseeing

    All was 100% very good

  • Couple
    8.8

    Very nice hotel, good designed, rooms look very modern and are big enough.

    No breakfast provided

  • Older travelers
    7.8

    Friendly staff, nice area, many restaurants in the area, walking distance to many attractions, two blocks from subway.

    Rooms were quite small, much like European.

  • Older travelers
    7.0

    The location was good, close to the Metro. Quiet.

    Rooms were small with no desk and only one chair. Bathroom lighting inadequate for applying makeup.
