Guest Rooms at the Hay-Adams
Entering these elegant guest rooms, with their high plaster-ornamented ceilings and palette of creamy whites, feels like entering some private and pillow-y version of the grand white-marble architecture so prevalent in Washington. The classical décor of the Hay-Adams captures the grandeur of the great monuments without the detached coolness of all that hard stone, instead ushering comfort and romance into the mix. The generous windows frame views of either Lafayette Square with the White House and Washington Monument in the background, or the brightly painted landmark St. John’s Church across 16th Street. Silky bed linens, lofty comforters, Etro toiletries, and the services of an exceptional housekeeping staff boost the comfort quotient to a level that may not only spoil guests for other hotels but may make going home a bit painful.
