The Hay-Adams
Ranked #3 of 141 Hotels in Washington DC
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 3 March 2012

The Hay Adams is one classy hotel. The rooms are spacious, the service is terrific and the location can't be beat. I have stayed there a half dozen times now as I travel to DC for business frequently. I used to stay a the Willard but the Hay Adams is more intimate and is easy in, easy out which I love. My favorite part of staying here is the terrific breakfast room. It's a power breakfast room no doubt, but you will be at ease even if you are not meeting a senator. Lots of interesting conversations to overhear and you get the feeling that there is a lot going on here. Nice bagel and salmon. Highly recommended.

This hotel overlooks the White House and is an amazing venue for any type of event, especially a wedding. The service is impeccable, the food is awesome. You will not find a better place to stay, celebrate or just grab a cocktail downstairs.
I cannot say enough about the staff; you will feel like royalty from the moment you arrive!!

Room Tip: Grab a room with a White House view, you won't regret it.

Stayed for 3 nights, beautiful hotel, though the rooms are small. Exceptional service from arrival to departure, without exception. The bar on the lower level was always so crowded we never used it, but the restaurant is among the best in Washington: exceptional food, service, and atmosphere (for some reason it is closed for dinner on Staurdays).

Room Tip: Rooms facing the streets are noisey. Rooms tend to be small, try for an upgrade.

Other luxury hotels need to take lessons from the staff of the Hay-Adams.
