"Housed in an Italian Renaissance-style mansion, the hotel is genteel and dignified in the best sense."
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. Guest rooms are modern, with custom Italian linens, Etro bath amenities and Bose sound systems. The hotel’s age may imply a sophisticated clientele, but families are made to feel welcome, and children receive nightly turn-down service with milk and cookies.
