Washington, DC (June 12, 2014) – Kimpton Hotels & Restaurants announces the completion of a multimillion-dollar renovation and redesign of Donovan House, a Kimpton Hotel.
The renovation of the stylish downtown Washington, D.C. hotel encompasses all 193 guestrooms and suites, elevators, and hallway corridors and features a more cosmopolitan look and new business-friendly amenities.
CBT, a Boston-based multidisciplinary interior, architecture and urban design firm specializing in luxury hospitality design, interior architecture, and urban design, was hired to reinvent Donovan House’s ultra-modern design to better accommodate business travelers.
A primary focus of the renovation was the addition of a desk in every guestroom, as previously only select rooms had dedicated workspace. Donovan House’s new standard five-foot dark oak finished desks feature built-in, flip-up outlets with standard power and USB sockets. Guests can pull up a grey ergonomic chair and work under ample lighting from a Humanscale Horizon LED task light, which is also a part of the Museum of Modern Art’s permanent collection.
Ten of Donovan House’s King Suites also received an upgrade with the addition of a pull-out grey chenille sofa bed and an oak-finished executive table with built-in outlets and gold winged chairs that can comfortably seat up to six people for a meeting. The hotel’s principle suite with sweeping views of Thomas Circle, the Donovan Suite, also received a stylish update including a new sectional sofa, patterned accent rug, and hardwood floors in the living room area.
Several of the hotel’s signature design elements, originally conceived by Studio GAIA, remain, such as the cocoon spiral showers, futuristic club chairs, and floor-to-ceiling windows in most rooms.
