The Hay-Adams was a wonderful experience. Great room, excellent staff, and unbeatable location. It is small enough that you get excellent, personalized assistance from the staff. We would do it again in an instant!

We have been traveling to Washing for over 50 years. During this time we have stayed at a range of hotels, including most of those supposedly deemed the best. The Hay Adams IS the best. It has class, a quality so rare to find these days. The rooms are tastefully decorated and very comfortable. The service is excellent, from arrival to departure. The food is top flight, whether for breakfast, lunch or dinner. I love the place!
