You could do something like this: (pick your favourite key)

(global-set-key (kbd "<C-f6>") (lambda () (interactive) (org-todo 3)))

For me my DONE state is the 3rd state.  Find the prefix for the state
you want (C-3 C-c C-t goes directly to DONE for me) and provide that
value as the argument for org-todo.

Then just C-f6 (or whatever key you like) and you're DONE. :)
