Independent spirit

Historic spaces with modern touches.

Small touches

Each of the 17 rooms at Hotel Donaldson is a living, breathing work of art. Every accommodation is designed and curated around the work of a single artist, making each visit unique. The rooms boast beds you'll want to linger in, and the bathrooms are equipped with luxe rainfall showerheads. Stay connected with complimentary WiFi, or visit the rooftop terrace to unplug and soak in the downtown views.

Eat and drink

The Blarney Stone is Hotel Donaldson's casual dining and drinking haven. The menu features scratch-made Irish entrees and American favorites, so you're sure to find something that will satisfy your craving. The bar boasts an impressive range of drafts, a fantastic selection of Scotch and Irish whiskey, and a rather eclectic wine list, making it a great place to start (or end) your night. For a more 'elevated' culinary affair, head up to Sky Prairie, the hotel's rooftop cocktail lounge, for some craft drinks and irresistible light bites.
