Our Hotel Planner Expert Reviews of The Donatello Hotel

Our expert hotel planners periodically visit and review the hotels we represent in person.
"Very Spacious Accommodations, Small and Charming Property"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The Donatello Hotel is a small property - under 100 rooms - that has a very charming, boutique feel. Their main selling point is their giant rooms - some of the largest I've seen in the city (400 square feet of space and 10 foot tall ceilings). All rooms have one king bed, as well as a pull-out queen sofa, and come with a wet-bar and sink, compact refrigerator and microwave. The space and amenities of the rooms make them feel very comfortable and 'homey'. This is a great hotel for first time visitors and families. The hotel has a good location near Union Square, and is attached to a nice Italian restaurant if groups do not feel like venturing out. They have a board room and a 'terrace room' that can host gatherings of 30- 50 people. In general, I would recommend this hotel to any visitors to the city... the charming decor, spacious rooms, and excellent location will make the trip feel comfortable and convenient.
