Steeped in rich history and surrounded by the most iconic institutions of our nation, The Hay-Adams is the discreetly luxurious hotel destination for discerning guests. Enveloped by views of the White House, St. John’s Church, and the scenic Lafayette Park, the 5-star accommodations at The Hay-Adams are the embodiment of refined residence. Marked by Washington, DC’s most accommodating amenities and dedicated services, The Hay-Adams is the boutique hotel of choice for the modern luxury traveler.

The Hay-Adams has, hands down, the best White House views of any Washington, D.C. property (in fact, its rooftop is a local favorite for private events). Housed in an Italian Renaissance-style mansion that was built in 1928, the hotel is genteel and dignified in the best sense. It’s grand enough for political bigwigs, yet welcoming and down-to-earth for travelers seeking an impeccably elegant base for their visit. The hotel’s 80-plus-year history can still be seen in original details such as ornate plaster moldings, high ceilings and the walnut-paneling in the lobby.
