How it Ranks: The Hay-Adams ranks #3 out of 356 Washington D.C. Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the exclusive U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in the USA.
Our Take: Named for the former tenants of the site—Secretary of State John Hay and journalist Henry Adams (who was also a member of the presidential Adams family)—The Hay-Adams is steeped in American history. Perched on the edge of Lafayette Square, The Hay-Adams boasts a spectacular vantage point of the White House and the National Mall. Here, guests are greeted by head-to-toe period décor; the lobby features rich wooden paneling and marble floors, while guestrooms feature neutral tones with elegant bedspreads. Long story short: if you're a history buff, The Hay-Adams is the place for you. That said, luxurious 21st-century amenities abound, from lavish Asprey London® bath products to 37-inch flat-screen TVs to Bose music systems. Should you wish to retreat from your opulent digs, check out The Lafayette, the hotel's elegant dining room that garners high praise from recent guests for its impeccable service, tasty culinary offerings, and impressive views of the White House.
