If The Hay-Adams were in Egypt, it'd be next to the pyramids. In England, it would be beside Buckingham Palace. Instead, it's in Washington D.C., close to another landmark you might have heard of.

Movers. Shakers. Masters of the Universe. The historic Hay-Adams has hosted them all. Guess that's what happens when a hotel is located across the street from the White House. (It's worth nothing here that "across the street" isn't a euphemism for "down the block" or "around the corner." Dine al fresco and all that separates you from the Leader of the Free World is Lafayette Square and rows of gleaming white columns.)

The Hay-Adams' 124 guest rooms and 21 suites share views of the White House, while some look down on famous St. John's Church. Inside, rooms ranging in size, feature classic design elements such as ornamental fireplaces, plaster ceilings, and tailored upholstery.

The Lafayette Room restaurant is among Washington D.C.'s finest, serving contemporary American cuisine. Many a deal has been brokered in the aptly named Off The Record bar, home to D.C.'s best bartender.
