Why You'll Love This Place

A Here Comes The Guide Wedding Venue Review
  • The hotel literally overlooks the White House and national monuments.
  • Walls of windows are the highlight of the newly renovated Top Of The Hay, a premier event space with access to an outdoor perimeter terrace.
  • The richly furnished Hay-Adams Room displays plenty of charm: period ceilings, working fireplaces, and warm wood tones.
  • The Lafayette Room has large windows that look onto Lafayette Park, providing a light and airy ambiance.
  • It’s a historic landmark: the Hay-Adams is built on the site of homes once occupied by former Secretary of State, John Hay and author Henry Adams.
