The cost of the food to eat within the hotel.
From the moment we arrived, to the moment of our departure, the staff was amazing. The flower arrangement filled the lobby with an aroma to delight your senses. The concerig, very knowledgable of the area. The rooms were spectacular.
The rooms are very close together, I could hear my neighbour coughing! Whenever room service was ordered across the hall I thought they were knocking on my door. Not ideal for a good night sleep!
This hotel was right on the doorstep to The White House! Moments from all the action. Excellent location.
My room had a very nice view of the office blocks next door and I could not have my curtains open as people were right there staring in at you. The building is also old (which is expected) however it wasn't pleasant hearing the people in the floor above moving around
The location was very good, however you do pay a premium for this so its to be expected.
Cozy and elegant atmosphere, comfortable lighting, and extremely helpful staffs. You can't find better location other than this hotel!
All was GREAT!
Loved the robes and slipper service.
I paid for the stay as a gift for my niece and her new husband for the first night o their honeymoon , and even after I had requested that the payment was to be taken from my card by email and phone , the cost of the stay was still taken from their card. The issue was sorted following 3 transatlantic phone calls and my card was finally charged. The whole thing came across as very unprofessional and left a bad cloud over what was suppose to be a gift .
That we were too poor to stay every night of our lives!
The pillows were the softest things on planet earth!
My room was overlooking next building , so no view and was bit smaller than expected
Location, staff, historic ambiente, exellen breakfast
Great hotel with very efficient and proffesional staff!! Rooms on the small side but comfortable! Love the turndown and classical music awaiting you after a long day! Location couldnt be better! Just love this charming hotel
Mini bar over priced - not much room in fridge for own water & no coffee/tea making facilities
Attention to detail & friendliness & professionalism o staff
Would have liked to have had two queen beds. And a coffee maker would have been a great addition !
Loved the location. The staff was fabulous !!!
The restaurant is pretty pricey for breakfast with not a lot of inexpensive choices. The food is very good, just expensive.
The hotel has old world charm. The staff are welcoming and caring. We only stay here when we visit DC.. Location is excellent.
This hotel is 5star all the way
I loved their motto ...and their staff was the epitome of this. We travelled to the Hay's Adams after a long flight and drive down from NY. We were greeted like a returning friend from the moment we arrived. We were checked in promptly with Jared ( unsure If I spelt correctly) from the Netherlands. He was friendly and quick with the check-in. From this moment our stay was amazing, we booked a tour through our wonderful concierge desk, and Eric and his counter parts were amazing. They went above and beyond. They assisted us with booked restaurants, with great recommendations. We also dinned in-room, which was exceptional with promptness and the way the food was presented. This was what you would expect and we were happy. We also dined at the Lafayette and this was a wonderful relaxed Sunday breakfast. Nothing was rushed and we overlooked Lafayette Park. The room was extra-ordinarily comfortable, we left our home for a home away from home. The best part was the bed. I now still have moments where I wished we were back there. Housekeeping would turn on our bose sound system to the cd we would have playing...when they turned down our room at night. Please accept our thanks for such a memorable start to our 5 week family vacation. Jeffrey & Audrey Anderson
No chill areas, food and drinks really overpriced even vs high end local restaurants, the cleaning staff broke my make up and instead of letting me know just left it and put it back tog, when I picked up collapsed in hands. Informed mgt and they sent a chocolate - not even offered to replace item.
Beautiful hotel, although definately not for leisure trip - more for business
Location and we were upgraded to a suite. Although we weren't in the room much it was great. Loved Off the Record as well as breakfast
Very relaxing and accomodsting. Wonderful with our littlie yorkie dog. Even put a candy on his dog dish. The turn down service was a wonderful treat when we returned to the room after a long day of sightseeing.
The location is superb,the staff outstanding :friendly,helpful , without being overbearing.The facilities have an old-style luxury charm that is becoming too rare in nowaday's marble-and-copper top hotels .
Hotel is a bit old, wood structure. The insulation of the walls and floors is poor. You can hear everything from the room above and next to you.
Loved the location.
The old world elegance of the service, the rooms, the dining, and the bar.
