Named one of the World's Best Places to Stay by Condé Nast Traveler, The Hay-Adams is a legendary landmark hotel, seconds from the White House and Lafayette Square, where public art installations, gorgeous greenery and regular outdoor festivals abound. 

Regal guest rooms look almost the exactly as they did when Amelia Earhart stayed here in 1928, with marble bathrooms, intricate moldings, walnut accents and high ceilings. Plush beds are outfitted in European linens and goose-down duvets. Guests can use free Wi-Fi to plan day trips to nearby attractions.

Forbes Travel Guide says "one of the best spots in the hotel is the luxurious rooftop terrace," which showcases "panoramic views of the city, monuments and Capitol." Or guests can rub elbows with politicos at the lively on-site bar and have a power dinner at the elegant Lafayette restaurant, ranked in the top 1% of D.C. restaurants according to TripAdvisor users.
