The Hay-Adams Hotel Review

: This establishment was a residential hotel in the 1920s. Today it hosts a clientele that includes pleasure travelers, ambassadors and celebrities. Stoic columns support the portico, which extends into a beautiful, outdoor courtyard. Located across from the White House, it offers walking access to Washington's most famous outdoor space, the National Mall and its monuments, museums and memorials. Expect charm and luxury 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. Bathrooms are done in marble, and some feature pedestal sinks. Other highlights range from fireplaces to carved ceilings. Business amenities include three two-line telephones equipped with voice mail, speaker phones and data ports. Views look onto the White House, Lafayette Square or St. John's Church. The dining room and bar both offer excellent on-site dining options.
