Had to be in Washington for appointments -- wasn't sure where to stay. Found a good deal on a room in this venerable hotel. So glad I did. Had come in on a red eye, so when I hit the bed for a quick nap prior to a reception, I fell right to sleep and fortunately had left wake up... More

My husband and I live apart for the time being because of his job; which means that every minute we have together is precious to us. With all five children grown and gone, and our first Christmas without them looming, the choice of what to do and where to go for the holiday was difficult. After much discussion and research,...

Dear Michelle, What a beautiful review of The Hay-Adams, thank you so very much!

Shame on me because I've never bothered to take the time to submit a review on Tripadvisor but our experience at the Hay Adams Hotel this week begs an exception. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this hotel, primarily because of the wonderful staff. From Nick at check in to Mark the Concierge to Sean, Humberto and (especially Geovanny),... More

My boyfriend and I stayed here for two nights during our spring break. We had initially only intended on staying in DC for one night, but upon arrival realized we had to extend our stay. The hotel staff was incredibly accommodating and we were even able to get a room facing the White House for our second night. We were... More

My wife and I stayed on the 7th floor of the Hay-Adams April 3rd through the 6th. There are only a few rooms which face the White House. Since this was a special occasion for my wife, I opted to "go over the top" and spend more than $1,000 a night for 3 nights. It was a great room. We... More

From start to finish, an amazing experience. From the time we arrived to the time we left, we were pampered. Checkin was easy and efficient. The room was beautiful and comfortable. Housekeeping and turn down service was great. When leaving and returning, the doors were always opened, the greetings always present. Breakfast at the Lafayette was very good. The oatmeal... More

I stayed at the Hay-Adams for 5 nights for a wedding I attended last week. As if its location isn't enough, every aspect of this old inn is replete with quality, substance and a tangible devotion to guest satisfaction. Upon arrival you are treated like royalty and it never stops. The staff, from bellmen to room service waiters to housekeepers... More

Loved staying here. The location is amazing - the White House is almost next door. The staff are very welcoming and helpful and the room is plush and massively comfortable. An integral part of a fantastic Washington experience.

The Hay Adams is just perfect. The rooms facing Saint John's Church are really charming. An anecdote: we spent a whole day inside it during a snow emergency, and it was like being at home. Mark, at the front desk, is a wizard, solving out any query you may have. The waiters at the restaurant are excellent. And the menu... More

Welcome to Washington's landmark residence of choice for visitors to our nation's capital. The Hay-Adams, a luxury boutique hotel, is as close as you can get to staying at the White House without a personal invitation from the President. Originally designed in the 1920s as a residential hotel, The Hay-Adams carefully emulates the ambiance of a distinguished private mansion on Lafayette Square. The 145-room boutique hotel in Washington, DC features 21 luxury suites with stunning views of Lafayette Park and the White House. All of our guest rooms exhibit the perfect combination of heritage, luxury, contemporary comfort and technology. Ideally situated in Lafayette Square and steps away from many of Washington D.C.'s famous attractions, The Hay-Adams is the premier destination for leisure and business travelers alike. ... more   less
