Hay-Adams Hotel Review
Given the elegant charm and refined style, with guest rooms decorated in a class above the rest, it's no wonder that the Obamas chose this impressive Washington landmark as their temporary home when they were preparing to move into 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue. The Lafayette serves American fare and is the backdrop to many a Washington power lunch or dinner, and the Off the Record bar downstairs lives up to its reputation as "the place to be seen but not heard." The rooftop "Top of the Hay" has spectacular views of the White House, Lafayette Park, and the Washington Monument.
The elegance of the historic Hay-Adams is one of the few things in D.C. that transcends party lines and political convictions. Nestled in the shadow of the White House, the Italian Renaissance landmark started out as the majestic homes to two prominent Washingtonians, Abraham Lincoln confidant John Hay and presidential descendent Henry Adams. Since its opening as a hotel in 1928, notable guests like Amelia Earhart, Charles Lindbergh, and Barack Obama have been drawn to the hotel's impeccable service and classic décor. But the clincher for many guests is unobstructed views of Lafayette Square, the Washington Monument, and the White House.
