Simply perfect. No other venue in D.C. comes close to a wedding reception at The Hay-Adams. The views, service, and amenities are well beyond a 5 star rating. Rebecca Ventura is outstanding with responsiveness, organization, and overall constant upbeat demeanor. Our reception at the Top of the Hay was breathtaking and our guests are still raving about the impeccable white...

We recently stayed at the Hay Adams for one night. I wish we had booked a week!!!! What a fantastic and beautiful hotel. Our rooms were ready upon arrival.

What a gem! I was lucky enough to plan a business meeting at the Hay-Adams. The sales team was terrific and the meeting planner was top notch. Once I was on site, the staff was absolutely so warm and welcoming. This is truly a wonderful hotel for business and I cannot wait to come back on vacation.

We stayed at the Hay-Adams for 4 nights during spring break. It is a nice historic hotel. Friendly staff, convenient location and attention to details all made the hotel special. Our room was on the 8th floor next to the presidential suite, facing the church and the park. The marble bathroom is comfortable size and no details were over looked:...

The ambiance was perfect for our nephew's rehearsal dinner, and the food was better than at the wedding reception the next day at the Reagan Center. The first item on the menu was a seafood bisque, which my wife enjoyed. As a vegetarian, I was served a very hearty and satisfying salad. The bread was perfect and served with very...

After four visits to the Hay Adams, I find it now necessary to review this hotel. Where to begin? Upon arrival, the front door staff welcomed us by name as if they had seen us only the day before. The front desk personnel were polished, efficient and helpful. The checkin was without a hitch. Upgrade was given without asking. Room...

The staff, Allison Okobi and George made this the most perfect rehearsal dinner I have ever been to and the easiest to plan. .They were outstanding ,as was the food, wine and of course the view. The guests were absolutely blown away. It could not have been more perfect . Thank you so much for a very memorable evening.

As we pulled up to the front door to check-in my husband took the last sip from his water bottle. Before he could dispose of the bottle the valet whisked it out of his hand and replaced it instantaneously with a Fiji water. This set the tone for a lovely 2 night stay at the Hay-Adams. We particularly enjoyed the...

Location! Location! Location! The Hay-Adams is right in fron of the White House. You cannot get any closer to the Oval Office. It's a really historic building but luxurious experience. Rooms are nice and clean and great Decor. Staff is friendly and courteous. It's worth the money. Upgrade for views of the White House if available.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
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
