A Historic hotel overlooking the White House

Looking down on the White House since 1928, the historic Hay-Adams provides arguably the best unobstructed views of the President's dormitory, along with 145 guestrooms, fine dining, and one of the "World's Best Hotel Bars.

Starting at the bottom, Off the Record is a subterranean cocktail bar with room-surrounding caricatures of Washington's political elite, and is well known as the "place to be seen and not heard"

Next up, The Lafayette is the hotel's "power dining" restaurant, but don't be fooled by the French name: this place serves upscale contemporary American

To whit: an herb-crusted Colorado rack of lamb w/ potato & root vegetable gratin that apparently somebody couldn't cut for themselves

Awesome room bonus: when you lie on this bed, it totally looks like the Washington Monument is your dong to anybody who walks in the room

Topping it all off's a stunning terrace with panoramic views called Top of the Hay, which will more than likely be here for longer than four years.
