Iconic hotel that isn’t resting on laurels. From Claudia at the front desk to the several concierges they make you feel at home. Rooms are updated. Downstairs bar is classic DC. Bicycles need some upgrading but at least they provide them for free.

Hotel's Favourite
What an amazing stay we have just had at this truly beautiful luxurious hotel. Situated so close to the White House and central to many of the visitor attractions we wanted to see. From the moment we arrived we were greeted so warmly by staff and our check in was seamless - just what we needed after a long transatlantic flight and airport transfer. All told, the service at The Hay Adams was impeccable. There is not one area of the hotel/staff we could have found fault with. I am going home with several caricature coasters from the bar that will evoke many a happy memory of our afternoon drinks after a hard day on the tourist trail - I particularly loved the wasabi chickpeas which were complimentary along with nuts and olives. Only hope I can find the wasabi chickpeas when I get home!!! Breakfast was always excellent and we were looked after so very well especially by Eric & Emmanuel. No request or variation to the menu was an issue. The staff were excellent and always professional. The rooms were beautiful, tasteful and very clean. A special thank you to Franziska the head Head Concierge and her team for all their help, advice & suggestions. All in all an excellent stay, and hopefully we will return to the amazing city of Washington and even more amazing The Hay Adams.

When I called to make my reservations I had the concierge make dinner reservations for our anniversary dinner. When we arrived for dinner they did not have our reservation. After dinner I made a dinner reservation for the following night. In the morning we had a change in plans and had the front desk cancel the reservation. That evening we received a call from the restaurant wondering where we were. Once home I checked my email for an itemized receipt but there was one. I then had to call hotel billing to forward my receipt. I would have rated the hotel five stars as the suite was wonderful as was the dinner in the Lafayette and the staff was great. We will stay there again.

We loved our stay here! The location was perfect for all the tourist-y things we had planned, and the on-site restaurant was phenomenal. (The on-site bar located downstairs is also worth checking out!) Each and every staff member we interacted with was kind, helpful, and attentive, and the drivers absolutely knew their way around wild DC traffic. Our only complaint—and it’s a minimal one at that—was that the AC couldn’t get the room as cool as we would have liked. It wasn’t a major issue though, and all things considers, we definitely recommend staying here!

This hotel has all the expected excellence for a property of its calibre - it is close to the main sights (in fact so close your are practically neighbour to the White House), tasteful classic deco style with good linen and everything in the room functioned well. However, what stood out for us were 2 things 1) we were a party of 3 and they made up the sofa bed every night and returned it to be a sofa every morning 2) the breakfasts were excellent, made special by the attentive staff, especially Geovanny who greeted us like long lost friends every morning! We were reminded, no matter how beautiful the hardware, this is a hospitality experience and the staff made us feel like house guests.

Everything about this hotel is perfect: the location, the room, the food and most importantly the attentive staff. This is one of the real gems in DC. From the moment you’re greeted at the front door, to the escort to the front desk for checkin and subsequently to your room, and then the fond farewell when you depart, you know that you have found a home away from home.

Location, accommodations, professional/friendly/helpful staff… The Hay Adams has it all. Just steps away from the White House, McPherson Square metro stop, many restaurants, and other attractions. We will definitely be back!
