The Donovan, A Kimpton Hotel Review: Formerly a Thompson hotel, Donovan House now flies under the Kimpton flag. In the heart of downtown Washington, D.C., this boutique property has been redesigned to embrace the future. The lobby greets guests with space-age furniture, including cool suspended chairs that look like glass fishbowls. The 193 spacious guest rooms and 17 suites are equally cutting edge, featuring streamlined minimalist design and unique details like cocoon spiral showers, leather-trimmed beds and complimentary mats for private yoga practice. The trendy rooftop pool and bar allow for an excellent view of Thomas Circle and 14th Street below. The hotel also has a state-of-the-art fitness center, in-room spa treatments and bikes for guest use. Zentan, the elegant, upscale Asian-fusion house restaurant, offers a menu focused on Japanese fare and sushi.
