The boutique Donovan House has good reason to not consider itself "your daddy's D.C.", as the swank'd out Thomas Circle urban retreat offers up a design-forward ambiance with a sleek sushi restaurant, modern stylish rooms, and a rooftop pool that, come nighttime, clubs harder than any of those Norwegian dudes.
Walking into the lobby you'll notice these suspended bubble chairs that you can totally sit and swing in, especially after indulging in their their daily hosted wine hour from 5-6p.
Once you're kicked out of the lobby, head up to rest up in this King Deluxe with with a "cocoon spiral shower", which doesn't have a naked Wilford Brimley, but will leave you feeling silky smooth.
For those that boss real hard, the Donovan Suite clocks in at an impressive 1,230sqft, with a separate kitchenette and a dining table that seats eight people/hosts one epic beer pong game.
Prior to heading out to the adjacent K Street clubs, grab a little a bite at Zentan, a house of inventive pan-Asian eats and, like, a million candles.
Their pride and joy's the rooftop bar with its covered mini cabanas, sweeping views of the city, rotating DJs, frozen drink machines, and a 32x13-foot pool that, much like the pool your dad grew up with, is totally above ground.
