Recent guest reviews

This hotel is the best I've ever stayed at. Everything from the service the moment you walk in the door to the room to the food and Off the Record Bar are perfect.

Great Stay. Great Location. Walking distance to most sites on the Mall.

This hotel is old, beautiful and perfectly kept. The location in DC is perfect for anyone visiting on business or pleasure. I stayed with a friend and our two 10 yo daughters and they made us feel very comfortable and welcome. They gave us advice on the best way to access the areas we wanted to see and arranged transportation for us that was elegant and perfect. We felt very coddled and safe there. Great experience!

The place is very convenient to the White House. The room deco is great. Reminds me of grandpa's house. Location, location, location.

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

Good to stay during the Sakura Cherry blossom, pretty fantastic location. haha~love to stay again.

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!!

Staff was anticipating my arrival at the time of check in and the room and all details related to my stay were appropriately anticipated and dealt with very professionally.

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.

Great hotel. Had a great stay and I will recommend it to everyone.

fantastic experience. clean. nice sunday brunch. great location

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.

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!

great, but bathroom shower was not good- poor shower head, especially for price.

The Hay Adams was an amazing hotel in the Perfect Location. Just Steps from the White house and walking distance to two different Metro Lines. It was a convenient spot as a home base to take in all of the sites. The staff was so friendly and accommodating. Our room, unfortunately, overlooked the alley/dumpster, so I would spend a bit more for a view next time, but in reality, we received a great price and we just closed the curtains whenever we were in the room, which wasn't very often. The restaurant was wonderful and the bar downstairs was the perfect spot for a nightcap. All in all, a wonderful experience.

The Hay Adams Hotel in Washington, DC was above and beyond anything we expected. We were upgraded to a studio upon arrival and the room was exquisite. The staff was not only attentive to our every need, but were some of the most personable and pleasant people you could meet. We would definitely choose the Hay Adams when we make another visit to Washington, DC.

Just took the wife to DC to see the Cherry Blossoms! We stayed at the Hay- Adams which has a very good location. The staff is as good as anywhere. The food in their restaurant is very good as well. My room was 334 and was ok! On Thursday 3/22/2012 I got a wake up call from Waste Management trash company at 6 am. For the next 45 munites they dumped trash in the trucks. So be careful of what room they put you in because from Monday thru Thursday you will get a 6 am wake up from Waste Management. Everything else was great!
