Owned by LaSalle Hotel Properties and previously managed by Thompson Hotels, Donovan House is located at 1155 14th Street, N.W., just blocks from the White House. Known for its modern decor and rooftop pool, it offers nearly 200 rooms, ranging from a 222 sq. ft. Queen Deluxe Room to the 1,230 sq. ft. Donovan Suite.

Under the new Kimpton management, Donovan House will receive a light refresh to the interior spaces and rooftop area, while maintaining most of its decor and amenities. These changes include new pillows and other touches that reflect Kimpton's nationwide standards such as the hosted evening wine reception, animal print robes, Kimpton InTouch loyalty program perks, pet-friendly practices and Kimpton's EarthCare program, which includes more than 100 eco-friendly operating practices.
