Really pleased with the experience here. While checking in they had computer problems for a short time. They were polite apologetic and opened the bar for us on the house. Generally very friendly staff lovely rooms and great location. Will visit again hopefully.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW

I stayed at the Donovan for 10 days when I moved to the area and was very impressed with how comfortable I was for an extended period of time in a hotel room. The staff like all other Kimpton's was impeccable! Every time I walked through the lobby they all had smiles on their face and gave me an energetic...

I have stayed at this hotel many times for a total of well over 30 days and I am never disappointed. The facilities are terrific, location is great and the staff genuinely cares about your well being. And then there is the rooftop if it's open when you stay ... can't recommend it enough

I have stayed at several Kimpton hotels and they all have excellent service. This hotel has a great rooftop bar/pool- but the pool doesn't open until late May. Staff is friendly and helpful. The bed was very comfortable. We had a great view from our 4th floor room. Sign up for Kimpton rewards- it's free and you get some decent...

We stayed here for a mother daughter tourist weekend in May 2017. My first impression was of the front desk staff - GREAT! They were very helpful, patient, respectful. My opinion of that did not change the entire weekend. The daily HH was a nice perk. The rooftop ambiance was also a nice place to stop at the end of...

After a long-ish drive from Williamsburg, we were slightly upset to find our room was not ready, even though we were checking-in after the specified time. This was quickly rectified when our room was ready with a bottle of wine for free. All was forgiven. When we finally made it into our room we were pleasantly surprised to find it...

Friendly, courteous staff. Clean and welcoming rooms. Even though we were only here one night, we enjoyed it very much and it was nearby to the places we wanted to get to. Would definitely stay here again.

The Donovan is a great place to stay. The rooms are uniquely designed with curving shower stalls and a more open footprint. End result is a rather big bathroom by hotel standards. The king bed is comfy and sits perfectly across from the gigantic tv. After a long day of business, I appreciated having a beer and enjoying the view...

The Kimpton Dovovan shines in all aspects of comfort and service. Just ending a 3 night stay in a premier suite we could not have asked for anything more.
