#7 of 154 hotels in Washington DC
Travelers' Choice
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.

Nothing beats the Hay Adams. If you like pure class then look no further and the location is outstanding. The Concierge arranged for a doy to your us and it was amazing and will continue to use them whenever we return. They knew all the history and had Mt Vernon all setup with private tour and VIP Golfcart

Lovely hotel and staff. We had a wonderful view of the White House. Beautifully decorated for the holidays. We will definitely stay there the next time in D.C.. unfortunately we didn’t have time to go experience the restaurant or lounge.

Everything from reservations to 'good-bye' is perfect. There is not a 't' left uncrossed or an 'I' left undotted when you stay here. The staff is helpful every single time; they are friendly and no desire is left wanting. What an extreme treat to stay here for nine nights before Christmas 2021.

The Hay Adams is top notch in every way. The staff are magnificent, the rooms are always immaculate, the restaurants are outstanding. As their motto claims,"the only thing they overlook is the White House!" I am there once a month, and I am always sad to leave. Each stay is consistently perfect.
