I called a couple of days prior and asked for a high room on the quiet side of the hotel and not on the 14th floor -- pool/bar.
I got exactly what I asked for and to boot the person at check in remembered me from my call. To me it's the small things like this that separate hotels into good, better, best. I rate Donovan House in the best category. I also asked for a pet free room due to allergies. My room was perfect. As a somewhat frequent traveler it's not typical to get what you ask for much less be known. Kudos to Donovan House.
I really like the Kimpton hosted wine hour. It's a great chance to relax and meet other guests.
My advise to others, is high floor, main side of the hotel. Definitely not as quiet but the quiet side has views of air conditioners, etc.
There are comments on the showers, I concur that it is too bad the bathrooms don't have more than one light switch. When the bathroom lights are on the bedroom is fully illuminated. I suggest bringing a simple home night light. This is what Kimpton should add to their rooms.
Great location and nice rooms. Definitely on my short list for my next stay in DC.
