Expert reviews

Lonely Planet review:

“One of the city’s great heritage hotels, the Hay is a beautiful old building where ‘nothing is overlooked but the White House.’ The property has a palazzo-style lobby and probably the best rooms of the old-school luxury genre in the city.”

Fodors review:

“This romantic, Italian Renaissance grande-dame on Lafayette Square, often rated as one of the world’s finest hotels, has welcomed presidents and other distinguished guests since 1928 (Amelia Earhart, Charles Lindbergh, and Sinclair Lewis among them).”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Washington.

Frommers review:

“This 88-year-old hotel’s tagline ‘Where nothing is overlooked but the White House,’ would be corny if it were not true. The Hay-Adams is known for its sublime service as well as for being the hotel that lies closest to the White House and the only one with such straight-on views, best seen from guest rooms on the top floors six through eight.”

Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Washington.

Telegraph review:

“If you want a classic Washington experience, stay at the Hay-Adams. The luxury hotel offers unparalleled White House views from its position on the National Mall, along with elegant interiors, a fantastic restaurant and a bar where you can spot Washington insiders sipping after-work cocktails.”
