The always slick Kimpton Hotels presents The Donovan, a Kimpton Hotel, an urban retreat in the heart of the historic and nostalgic Washington, D.C.

Be sure not to miss the happy hour in the lounge
The Donovan, a Kimpton Hotel is a careful blend of modern, global simplicity in a city steeped in rich, American history. Contemporary design is foremost, and an edgy zeal permeates the surroundings. The crispness of white is contrasted against dark woods and deep reds, and carefully appointed furnishings are sparse but inviting, as is the low lighting that haunts each space and corridor.

Dinner is served lobby-level in ZENTAN, a uniquely Asian masterpiece where inventive design makes its way from table to plate with a global flair. Afterwards, take things up a notch to ADC, as in Above DC, the hotel's exclusive rooftop pool bar, where inventive cocktails are sipped from tumblers near a horizontal fireplace.

Any preconceptions about a stuffy Washington dissolve as you float in the pool, admiring the storied skyline of this historic city.
