This is a wonderful old hotel in a premium location with a staff who understands the needs of professionals and politicians including discretion. It's a real pleasure to walk the same halls where politicians and even a president has passed. The fixtures and decorations suit the building. Although it is historic, it is both beautiful and functional today as a viable alternative in downtown Washington, DC. Nothing can beat the location.

stayed here this weekend for a wedding and were not disappointed in any way. the hotel is a grand, old style hotel. it is beautiful, spotless, and high class all around. the view from the 9th floor is unbelievable. truly one of a kind and no better location for an event of any kind. the staff is excellent as well. only exception was the doorman who seemed to have a bit of an attitude. bar downstairs, off the record, is really cool. great hotel.

We stayed here for two nights last week at the end of a 16-night Road Trip. We have travelled extensively over the years and have stayed in some of the best hotels in the world, some of the worst and some in between. This hotel was disappointing for a 5* with so many good reviews. Firstly, we originally booked a Suite overlooking Lafayette Square but this was changed, as we requested no interconnecting doors (we have had nightmares with these in the past) and we were told that the only rooms wi...

This was our second visit, having been several years ago when our kids were little. On deciding to revisit Washington we looked around but decided that no other hotel could compare. I was so glad we chose the Hay Adams. For starters, the location cannot be beaten! We walked virtually everywhere. We had White House view rooms and every morning it took our breath away as we opened the doors and there it was, the White House! The hotel has a charm and level of detail and quality that is unique. ... Read more

Old-school luxury hotel from the moment you approach the entrance. Very cordial staff; a special 'thank you' to Constanz at the front desk for her assistance. House keeping staff were great as well. My room was very nicely appointed and the bed (at least for me) was very comfortable. Especially important for me, the wifi is solid and it is in fact high speed; it was free as well. The location is excellent, an easy walk or short cab ride to the White House, House or Senate.

So very disappointed with this hotel for the price. I think when you are paying a premium you expect so much more. We paid over $700 (including taxes)for just one night at the hotel, which we were happy to do because we have heard that it was wonderful. Sadly for us it was not. We had paid for a Lafayette park view king room, we got this room but we looked at the road and a tree not really the park ( the room was on the first floor). We called down to see if we could get a better room and was to... Read more

Really doesn't get much better, folks. Across the street, or the park to be more exact, from the White House. Luxury hotel, great service, 10 on a 10 scale. Can't wait to return to DC so we can stay at The Hay Adams. From here on, I won't even look at other DC options.

I stayed at The Hay-Adams for three nights and the experience was absolutely perfect. From the moment I arrived, the staff was extremely friendly, efficient and attentive without being imposing. The hotel location is wonderfully convenient for seeing the city. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling to Washington DC for any reason, alone or with family. It was truly an exceptional experience.

I stayed at The Hay-Adams for 3 nights for a business trip. Although my room was quite small it had everything I needed. The bed is one of the best I've slept it and being only 5 ft I had to jump up to get on it due to the huge mattress. I felt like the princess and the pea!! The bed is turned down at night and a chocolate left on the bed. Nice touch! Everything is spotless. The toiletries are of good quality.

Each night they made up the couch pullout for our son, and he was beyond comfortable. The location is the best possible for taking in the DC attractions. You can walk everywhere and it is as close to the White House as one can stay. From valet, to bellman, to front desk, the staff was fantastic. I was not allowed to even... Read more

Great Location, right in front of white house. You will be made feel at home by a welcoming staff.The rooms are dated as is expected from a building which is old. The beds could have been better. The bathrooms were relatively small for our convenience. Overall, worth the money for its location.

We had a nice, brief one- night stay at the Hay-Adams. The staff from beginning to end were polite, helpful, and nice to talk to. The room was small, but had a nice view of a church (unfortunately not a view of the White House). Bedding and mattress were very comfortable. Everyone was truly friendly. Th architecture, ceilings, and moldings were amazing. A very good hotel - especially for DC.

Great location just a few yards from the White House. Quiet and relaxing. The staff is helpful and friendly. The reception desk personnel should smile more. The trainee there was the nicest. The door men are great. I enjoyed one expensive but very delicious breakfast. There are many good restaurants just one or two city blocks away. If your like to walk or jog you can see many memorials during your exercise regimen. The hotel can provide you with the three mile jogging or walking route.

The Hay Adams exudes luxury. The meeting room on the roof is the perfect place for an event. The rooms are as comfy as old southern couches and the staff attends to every detail. Luxury does have a price and this is worth it.

This hotel is beautiful and the staff are super friendly. There was always doormen waiting to help you get a taxi or answer your questions. You are 2 blocks from the White House. Ask for a room on the top floors facing Lafette Park , which will give you a view of the White House. Must do cocktails downstairs in their bar, as it is very famous and cozy.

I grew up in Washington, DC and moved away many years ago. Recently, I returned to deal with some family matters. Hay-Adams was my first choice. It is a local institution. In a city that is constantly being built and re-built, the Hay-Adams retains its long history of style and superb service.
