The Hay-Adams Hotel
The Hay-Adams Hotel is located just across Lafayette Square, steps from the White House and close to the Smithsonian's museums and the National Mall. The hotel is named after the distinguished residents who previously lived on its site, John Hay, Private Assistant to President Abraham Lincoln and later Secretary of State, and Henry Adams, an acclaimed author and descendant of U.S. Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams. Guest rooms are all sumptuously appointed with the finest linens as well as marble baths and essentials like plush bathrobes, hair dryers, iron/ironing board and fine soaps and shampoo. You also have access wi-fi in your room and a complimentary newspaper will be delivered to your door each morning. The hotel features fine dining at Restaurant Lafayette and the cozy Off the Record Bar, for evening refreshments.
