Outstanding stay
The stay was excellent in every respect. We attended a wedding reception at the hotel and it was by far an outstanding experience. The setting was great overlooking the White House and Washington monument.

The best view in DC
The hotel is amazing. They leave nothing out as far as service and comfort. The staff is top notch and the rooms are impeccable.

The Hay-Adams - Washington
Very Good8.0
Asked for a room not adjacent to the elevator - was told they had a beautiful room with view of the capital, just needed the manager's approval. Manager came over and reiterated how nice the room was, then after spending a few minutes on computer, told us room would be an additional $200/night. No doubt he didn't want to upgrade a comp'ed room... Didn't appreciate the upsell treatment.

Best Historic Hotel - Best Location
Lovely, historic hotel. Perfect location for our needs - able to walk everywhere, both for business needs and sightseeing. Literally across the park from the white house. The service at the Hay Adams was exceptional and unsurpassed. The downstairs, famous bar had great drinks and appetizers as well. Will definitely stay here again in the future.
