Rooms & Rates

Check Rates


Big, kid-friendly rooms at The Donatello Hotel come equipped with free Wi-Fi, sleeper sofas, modern electronics and kitchen amenities, making it a great choice for families seeking accommodations just a block from Union Square. 

Amenities include a decent Italian restaurant and a well-equipped gym, rounded out with a hot tub and a sauna. The Club Lounge is open to all guests and serves free coffee, tea and hot chocolate. Wi-Fi is also free, but parking is not, nor is daily housekeeping.
