The room was quite small and difficult for maneuvering. There was no lamp for reading at the chair. The bed needs a new mattress that doesn't sag on the side.
The staff was the highlight of my stay. Geovannie (sp?) was an exceptional host and waiter at breakfast on Wednesday and Thursday. Friday, the breakfast service staff was not as good as the previous two days. In all cases, though, the food quality was excellent. I had a very enjoyable dinner with drinks at the bar on Wednesday and appreciated the quality and the pleasant bartender. The front desk and door staff was excellent.

Attention to detail was exceptional! Loved the dimmer switch in the bathroom - sets the mood for a romantic bubble bath. Rooms are exquisite, quiet and very clean.

The hotel and room had so much charm and character and every staff member was warm and willing to make our stay memorable.

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.

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!

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.

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
