2 day city visit

great effort to please and resolve issues. There were issues certainly with breakfast and availability and standard of service Concierge and reception staff were very helpful and management dealt promptly with our issues. However, for a 5 star hotel we should not have had these issues

Loved being across from the White House. The staff was courteous and the room beautiful with a great view of St. John's Church. Had not stayed in 30 years, hadn't changed and every bit as remarkable!!

Thanksgiving weekend start

We stayed at the Hay Adams while visiting family in Maryland. The room is lovely and comfortable, the room service food was superior and the breakfast in the restaurant was terrific. The hotel was accommodating in every way - we were able to check in early, the concierge mailed letters for us, the housekeeper was lovely and it was all around fantastic.

Washington wonder!

I have had the opportunity to stay in hotels all across this country. I can honestly say that my stay at the Hay Adams was absolutely perfect! Two areas stood out: The staff seemed to enjoy their jobs. They were all cordial and seemed to be very happy in their jobs. Secondly, was the amount of professionalism displayed at all levels. Truly caring for their guests needs was clearly apparent.

Great service in a great location!

You can see the White House from your window - what can you ask for more? :-) Great location and the staff are great. They have catered all of our needs. Also the restaurant has excellent Sunday brunch. Also you should try the oatmeal souffle - so good!
