October 27, 2016 By:Rachael Weir, Five Star Alliance

For panoramic views of the White House, Lafayette Square, Lafayette Park and St. John's Church, The Hay-Adams Hotel is the perfect destination. Originally built in 1928 as a residential hotel, this historical boutique property has a walnut paneled lobby, ornate plaster moldings, and Italian Renaissance-style architecture. Throughout the years, the hotel has hosted its share of celebrities including the Obama family, Amelia Earhart, Charles Lindbergh and more. Guest rooms and suites feature luxurious amenities, unparalleled views of the White House and Washington Monument, plus a centralized location for sightseeing or business. Read more below the photo.

The hotel's location and rooftop terrace, Top of the Hay, make it a popular destination for hosting events, including the Author Series, where attendees get up-close-experiences with prominent international authors.

But, perhaps one of the hotel's most well-known spots is located in the downstairs of the building. The Off the Record Bar is a favorite place for guests and politicos to grab a drink. Selected by Forbes as one of the “World’s Best Hotel Bars”, the bar features a bespoke atmosphere with caricatures of Washington's political elite, both past and present. Red velvet tufted booths provide a vintage-inspired atmosphere to relax, while enjoying a cocktail, glass of wine, or small plate and the setting is the ideal place to be seen, but not heard.
