The Hay-Adams Hotel Review

: This establishment was a residential hotel in the 1920s. Today it hosts a clientele that includes leisure travelers, ambassadors and celebrities. Stoic columns support the portico, which extends into a beautiful, outdoor courtyard. Located across from the White House, the property offers walking access to Washington's most famous outdoor space, the National Mall and its monuments, museums and memorials. Expect charm and indulgence in an environment that oozes elegance; those seeking subtle sophistication won't be disappointed. The lobby is impressive with ornate rugs, marble and wood finishings, and comfortable furniture. Many rooms are decorated in beige and sage green. Marble baths are common; some bathrooms come with pedestal sinks. Other features range from fireplaces to carved ceilings. Following a renovation at this family-friendly hotel, rooms offer 32-inch flat-screen HDTVs and complimentary Wi-Fi and wired Internet access. Business amenities include three two-line telephones equipped with voice mail, speaker phones and data ports. Views overlook the White House, Lafayette Square or St. John's Church. The Lafayette restaurant and Off the Record bar offer excellent on-site dining options. Meeting and event venues include the elegant Top of the Hay room and The Windsor Room, with an ornamental fireplace and silk-covered walls. The hotel accepts pets under 25 pounds.
