My wife and I stayed here for 11 days, and enjoyed every moment, this was due to the wonderfully friendly and helpful staff working at the Hay Adams. Nothing was too much trouble and every request responded to without delay. The Lafayette restaurant was the best, with a wonderful host, Leah on hand to brighten every visit. The food also was well prepared and tasty. Eric the concierge was equally a great guy, and assisted us during our stay.
Although the hotel is an old building, I think this adds to the charm and warmth of this beautiful hotel. It has quirky creaky floorboards but this also adds character to the place.
The location is superb and central for all local attractions. When we return to DC for another visit The Hay Adams will be the only place for us!
