The ultramodern design and swanky feel earn The Donovan raves from our guests who love this boutique spot with a Manhattan feel. In a city that tends toward the traditional the 14-story Donovan dares to be different. Lucite swing chairs in the lobby resembling a bubble cut in half set the tone. The 193 rooms are as sleek as the public areas done up in black and white with a few splashes of deep purple. Beds have wrap-around leather headboards and are covered with decadent 400-thread-count linens. All the latest tech gadgets are here so there are iPod docks flat-panel TVs and Wi-Fi in the public areas. The pod-like showers connect the bedrooms with the marble bathrooms creating one fluid space. There's a see-and-be-seen bar and restaurant on-site and parking is available for an additional fee. The Donovan is on Thomas Circle just south of the trendy shops and eateries of 14th Street. Even at a leisurely pace the National Mall and its collection of museums and galleries is less than a 20-minute walk away. Three stations of the Metro system are close by: McPherson Square is three blocks away Farragut North is four blocks away and Farragut West is five blocks away. Ronald Reagan Washington National Airport is five miles away while Washington Dulles International Airport is 27 miles away. our guests are impressed with the "hip and modern" Donovan's "extremely comfortable beds" and "very attractive rooms" as well as its central location.
