Our room was very comfortable so much so we sometimes just stayed in to enjoy the super fast Wifi ( complimentary ) ,outstanding view of the White House even from the La Fayette park view room 3 rd floor. As it's winter there are no leaves on trees so you get an uninterrupted view ,for the price of a White House view room. Usual five star hotel amenity's , robes, slippers, bath products, and a chocolate placed on your pillow , a sweet touch .
Breakfast on our three day stay was faultless. Plenty to choose from ,every dish we had was delicious , obviously they use the best of ingredients. The service was friendly without been over friendly. Very formal during the week not so much at the weekends. As tourists we felt more comfortable at the weekend. Unfortunately we never had a chance to dine in the evening but am certain it will live up to its reputation.
Lounge area oozes with history, to add to its age the floor boards creek wonderfully. As you walk in to the hotel the doors are opened not by one but two door man. They are obviously over staffed just so they can provide a superior service.
Most five star hotels I checked in DC seem to hide their parking fees. The Hay Adams was different . It's on their web site in clear print so you can make an informed decision.
Overall this hotel although large in size somehow manages to give a boutique feel . My wife and I absolutely enjoyed our stay and plan on returning in January before the trees get foliage.
