The Kimpton Donovan Hotel in downtown D.C. debuted redesigned events spaces last month, including the newly constructed Bradlee Room.

In keeping with the journalism-inspired theme of the 1155 14th St. NW hotel, the new meeting space is named after The Washington Post’s famous executive editor, who held the job during the Watergate scandal. The 550-square-foot room, which can accommodate up to 40 guests, is decked with high-tech features and “flooded with natural light from windows overlooking the picturesque Thomas Circle,” according to a news release.

The hotel has also revamped its signature 1,325-square-foot Woodward and Bernstein Room with features similar to the new Bradlee Room. Altogether, the Kimpton Donovan now hosts more than 5,000 square feet of private indoor and outdoor function space, the release says. The D.C.-based interior design firm Monogram at BBGM oversaw the new design.

The hotel’s restaurant, Zentan, specializing in Japanese izakaya-style dishes and hand-rolled sushi, provides all catering for events at the hotel; meanwhile, the DNV Rooftop lounge offers small plates and cocktails “while overlooking stellar views of DC,” the release says.
