We stayed here for the July 4-5, 2011 package. One word--excellent. We checked in about 3 pm, upstairs in 5 minutes. Room was very nice although we were in the lowest category--superior room, internal view. Went to the Mall--hot, lots of people, bugs, stayed a while and came back to get cleaned up. Went down to our "all inclusive" dinner in the Lafayette room with a three course dinner with cocktails and wine. Fantastic. Our waiter, Emmanual, was excellent, perfectly friendly, most knowledgeable, excellent timing, and clearly motivated for us to have a good time. We would definitely want him to wait on us again. At 9 pm, went to the Roof-terrace for the fireworks. Open bar, light desserts, excellent, friendly staff and incredible view. Directly south was an unobstructed view of the White House framed by the Washington monument. To the west was the Lincoln Memorial. Fireworks were in between with National Airport in the background. Excellent view, excellent weather, very nice guests with mostly adults but some very well-behaved children. Headed back to the room, slept great. Up early the next morning to check out and head back to Oakton, VA on the Metro from Faragut West. A doorman fixed me coffee "to go" while I checked out. Another doorman knew our name despite our "pedestrian" arrival wheeling one suitcase from the Metro. Overall--excellent, expensive, once in a lifetime experience, worth every penny. Thanks to the Hay-Adams.
