The Hay Adams

There’s no way to sleep closer to the West Wing except by political ambition or the Hay Adams Hotel. Located on 16th and H Streets, just across the street from the White House, the hotel is one of the most revered landmarks in Washington D.C.

Named after previous residents John Hay (private assistant to President Abraham Lincoln) and Henry Adams (acclaimed author and descendant of U.S. Presidents John Adams and John Quincy Adams), the hotel offers a welcoming atmosphere, steeped in the location’s history.

Sophisticated interiors evoke the luxury of a late 19th century home, with rich wood paneling, fine fabrics and plush furniture. Each room and suite is outfitted with deluxe bedding and marble bathrooms with brass fixtures, as well as modern conveniences like digitally controlled heating and air conditioning, complimentary wireless Internet access and a Bose CD System.

The hotel’s recent renovations have created this to be one of the most desirable addresses for any visit to the U.S. Capital.
