#8 of 153 hotels in Washington DC
Travellers' Choice
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.

Had a great experience when I visited the lounge . Had 2 Jordan Cabernets , which were absolutely on point, very generously poured and in the perfect glass. Our waiter Vladi gave excellent service. Will be back soon.

Hotel's Favourite
I came to DC for business and didn't know what to expect. The hotel far exceeded my expectations. From check-in to check-out everything was flawless. The building is older and very well maintained. The food service was impeccable, everything from room service to meals in the restaurant were delicious. I'd put The Hay-Adams in the top group of hotels I've visited.

Very luxurious hotel with high end finishes and upscale vibe. Loved the restaurant on the top floor. The view was amazing and the service was even better. We truly enjoyed our stay. Great location right next to the White House.

We had lunch at the top of the Hay Adams. It was delicious , but the best part of the meal was a bird's eye view of the White House from our table! From the balcony, we looked down to see the large letters on the street, proclaiming Black Lives Matter! The only place in the city you can see both!
