Property Description

Thank you for considering Donovan Hotel for the accommodations of your guests. On iconic Thomas Circle, a stay at Donovan Hotel indeed comes with intrigue — be it while savoring our avant-garde décor or taking advantage of amenities like the rooftop pool. Our guest rooms and suites welcome you with a modern style that is notable for its sheer simplicity and quiet strength. Through it all: a sense of luxury and sophistication that you'll quickly warm up to — and won't want to part with.In our rooms, guests can have it all. We're talking oversized TVs, generous lounging stations, and breathtaking floor-to-ceiling windows plus a sleek, sexy vibe that permeates everything we touch. Our smart decor mixes luxury and decadence with a hip, futuristic attitude. Think Kyoto's minimalism meets Berlin's edginess circa 2020. Enjoy highlights like tantalizing chocolate leather canopy beds, plum accents, clean white linens, Studio Gaia club chairs, and the pièce de résistance — a spiral walk-in shower. The bathrooms are replete with luxury ROIL bath products. Additionally WI-FI and broadband internet access are provided complimentary throughout the hotel. If you ask any Washingtonian the neighborhood to check out at the moment? They'll point you in our direction. Our hotel is situated on distinguished Thomas Circle, at an intersection of important NW streets (14th Street and Massachusetts and Vermont avenues). By day and by night, the 14th Street corridor lures visitors and locals alike to its bustling shops, galleries, bars, restaurants, and concert venues that pervade a neighborhood marked by a rich history and stunning architecture. Alternatively, head five blocks in the other direction to access all the treasures found in City Center DC, including a brand-new hub of high-end shops that seemingly transports guests to New York's glamorous Fifth Avenue retail zone. Our highly walkable coordinates also grant easy access to nearby Dupont and Logan circles, U Street, the Convention Center, and the White House.
