Copywriting, Project Management
Purpose: When Kimpton takes over a hotel, rebranding takes place at lightning speed. I created a friendly, yet edgy, voice for this quirky DC hotel and rewrote the entire site in three days. Right down to the fine print.
Outcome: Immediate bookings and bravos!
Here's the home page copy, including key words.
Donovan House. A Stylish DC Attitude, In Every Sense Of The Word.
At Donovan House, you hold the keys to chic style and worldly comfort. The entrance escorts you into a sleek environment with clean surfaces, Asian imagery and edgy furnishings. Imagine holding very private social confabs in a circle of leather cocoons. Rest your eyes on yummy colors like avocado and plum. Just for the pizazz of it.
Kimpton Started The Pet-Friendly Craze. Here's How.
Wait'll You And Your Pet Get A Whiff Of Our Hotels.
Really, there's nothing like the warm fuzzies at Donovan House. We're pet people, just like you, and that includes pets in all shapes and sizes. You've heard about the elephant in the room? Maybe a bit of an exaggeration, but guests with tails make us go all soft and doe-eyed. Your pet will be accommodated free of charge, and anyone who works in our hotel will be delighted to point out walks, dog parks, groomers, and pet stores.
The Accommodations copy tells all.
Come in. Come in. Your room is waiting.
Now if all you really want to do is sleep, you may get distracted by the sleek, sexy luxury of your room. The decor gets futuristic right. Think Kyoto's minimalism crossed with Berlin's edginess circa 2020. Tasty chocolate leather canopy beds, plum accents, clean white linens, and a spiral walk-in shower that could get you and the love of your life in a bit of a lather. A hip attitude and style permeates the rooms, outsmarting the usual trendy DC hideaways.
The Donovan weddings page. Loved romancing this one.
Our Wedding Venues Handle Both Intimate & Momentous Celebrations.
Two people stand side by side in a gorgeous room, among cherished friends and family members, and make promised to each other. Both sides of the aisle vote in favor of this one.
We have promises to keep, too. They're the practical ones, like bringing every last detail you've dreamed about to life, putting our experienc to work, hard. Seeing to it that the bride has nothing more on her mind than how tight those satin stilettos are. We're romantics at heart and put our hearts into our work. You'll see, because when all is said and done, you'll just show up, say your vows, and start celebrating.
Leave the out-of-town guests, menus, music, flowers, and photos in our experienced hands. That goes for the engagement party, prenup dinner, recepiton, and post-wedding brunch, too. And by the way, congratulations!
