  • The Hay-Adams is THE spot to get married in DC. The rooftop space has the best view of the city and the service is unparalleled. Erika Ruben was a delight to work with. She's a true professional, has a fantastic bubbly personality, and bent over backwards for us. I highly recommend the Hay-Adams and commend the Hay for hiring Erika. Erika, thank you.

  • I was torn between the Hay Adams and the Newseum for my wedding venue for the views of DC, and now that the day has come and passed I could not be happier with my decision to go with the Hay Adams. In addition to the absolutely spectacular location and view from the Top of the Hay, the service was impeccable. When I asked if my guests could be greeted with champagne as they arrived for the ceremony and was told "we don't like saying no here!" I was a bit worried at first, as in the year of planning the wedding the Hay Adams went through 3 different catering managers, but in the end my worries were unwarranted. They made sure everything went off without a hitch and while I didn't grow up imagining it, it truly was a dream wedding. It didn't hurt that the food was absolutely phenomenal and they were able to cater to my gluten-intolerance!

  • The Hay-Adams is the ultimate Washington wedding experience. We knew we wanted to host at a DC hotel and looked at them all. Upon entering Top of the Hay, we knew this location would not only make our day super memorable for us but also for our guests. The event from planning through execution (with Kathryn) was top notch with incredible service, exceptional hospitality and friendly encounters. Not to mention 100% the best view of Washington. A family of foodies, the food was one of the most important pieces of the venue for us and the chefs at the Hay pulled out all of the stops to present a creative menu for our brunch wedding. For example, the specialty bar was make your own bloody marys and mimosas, the bread baskets were fresh brunch pastry boards and the entree was the fanciest filet and eggs I had ever enjoyed. The service was amazing. During hair and makeup in the suite that morning, all of the hairdryers blew a fuse. The building engineer was in our room within 3 minute... Read more

  • We were fortunate enough to have our wedding at the Top of the Hay at the Hay-Adams hotel. The view completely speaks for itself and you’d be hard pressed to find a better wedding venue in DC. But the true quality of the Hay-Adams extends well beyond the view. The staff is knowledgeable and communicative and are more than happy to tailor to all of your specific needs, as a bride planning her wedding from abroad I couldn’t have asked for a better team. There was a wide variety of meals options to choose from and was perfectly prepared.

  • I got married at the Hay on Saturday and everything was perfect!! Both the service and the venue were 1st class all the way. I did not have to lift a finger all night long. The staff was so welcoming and sweet and really went above and beyond to make my day perfect. The wedding coordinator Erin was FANTASTIC! I had the best experience and I highly recommend to anyone looking for a top notch wedding.

  • The Hay-Adams was the perfect venue for our DC wedding. From the beginning, Erin (our hotel contact) was incredibly responsive to our emails and patient with us as we made decisions. The hotel staff was really top notch and so attentive to my family's needs throughout the weekend. It rained on the day of our wedding, but I wasn't even worried about the weather, knowing that the view from the Top of the Hay is gorgeous rain or shine!

  • If you're looking to give wedding guests the quintessential Washington, DC experience, look no further than the Hay-Adams! The "Top of the Hay" gives an unobstructed view of the White House, Washington Monument, and other local sights. We had a brunch reception, and the floor-to-ceiling windows filled the room with light, while exposing the beautiful view the entire time. Our guests are still raving about the venue, the food, and the service! The Hay-Adams provides catering, tables, chairs, linens, and flatware, unless you opt to rent them from an outside vendor, but there's no need! Also, the hotel works with Kendall's Cakes for the wedding cake, and ours was delicious! Additionally, the concierge coordinated our transportation to and from the ceremony. Overall, we had a classy, fun, memorable reception thanks to the Hay-Adams and Jenny Niesen, our coordinator at the hotel. The staff also made my groom and me, and my family, feel incredibly special during our stay at the hotel. Our gu... Read more

  • I can't imagine a more perfect venue for a wedding. The wood-paneled, votive-lit Hay-Adams room was beautiful for our ceremony, and the magnificent Lafayette Room, where we had the reception and dancing, was beyond elegant. Our guests raved about the incredible appetizers during our cocktail hour and the superb dinner that followed. And one of the best things of all was Rebecca. Her title may be senior catering manager, but it should be wedding planner extraordinaire. From the moment I first met with her to view the Hay-Adams as a potential wedding site until the last guest left the wedding, she guided us through every step. The fact is, the entire staff went above and beyond, resulting in a truly magical wedding that exceeded every expectation. Upon returning to our lovely suite at the end of the evening, we were greeted by chilled prosecco and chocolate-covered strawberries. When we finally left The Hay-Adams, we didn't walk out the door. We floated.

  • Simply perfect. No other venue in D.C. comes close to a wedding reception at The Hay-Adams. The views, service, and amenities are well beyond a 5 star rating. Rebecca Ventura is outstanding with responsiveness, organization, and overall constant upbeat demeanor. Our reception at the Top of the Hay was breathtaking and our guests are still raving about the impeccable white glove service. The staff was so friendly and went above and beyond in every aspect. Kendall's cakes was a treat to work with as well. They delivered an exquisite 4 tier cake and even white house cookies as favors for our guests. We will be forever grateful for our beautiful reception at The Hay-Adams.

  • It simply doesn't get better than the Hay-Adams. Rebecca was FANTASTIC to work with, as was the whole team. For my enitre 2 year engagement, they responded to all my questions, and made sure my wedding was perfect. They provided me with amazing references for florists, photographers, and a day-of wedding coordinator, and really helped the wedding come together. My wedding was beautiful and stress-free thanks to Rebecca and the Hay-Adams. Oh - and THAT VIEW!!!!!!!!! You just can't beat it!

  • Our wedding at the Hay-Adams was a truly unforgettable experience. A beautiful setting with amazing views and an outstanding location which we, and all of our guests loved. We can’t say enough about all of the staff at The Hay-Adams (especially Rebecca) every need and detail was handled with grace and ease – nothing to small or too large. The food was outstanding and the dinners and desserts were first rate. We have so many great memories there now, and plan to return any time we are in town.

  • The staff at the Hay-Adams was incredible! From booking to leaving for our honeymoon, Rebecca and her team were better than we could have ever hoped! Not only is the view from the Top of the Hay beautiful, but the food and service matched the beauty. There was never a moment of concern or stress throughout the planning process or the day of the event. We cannot thank the team enough for everything they have done! I cannot imagine a better venue or staff for a wedding in DC. You cannot go wrong with the Hay-Adams!

  • We had our wedding dinner reception at Top of the Hay, with our Cocktail Reception at the Hay Adams room prior. The view from Top of the Hay is breathtaking - especially from the balcony, which was perfect for our summer reception. The space is in a "L" shape, so guests have a panoramic view of St. John, Lafayette park and the White House/Washington Monument. The only drawback to this layout was that we had to seat half of our guests on one side of the "L" and half on the other. We worked with the lovely Whitney, who made sure our planning process was special and as stress-free as possible. Our menu was incredible - everything from the hor doeuvres to the dessert display was impeccably prepared and beautifully displayed. Kendall's Cake created a gorgeous cake and macaron towers for us. The service at the hotel and overall experience was perfect!

  • The Hay Adams is the best view in DC for an event (you definitely pay for the view), but the service might be the worse. I decided against having my wedding here not based on price but on the fact that no one would even return my email about who to make my check out to in order to book the space. I went with my gut and choose the Trump Hotel (which was awesome) instead for our big day, but we did use the Hay Adams for the rehearsal dinner. Guests had a blast and the view is wonderful, as was the food and dinner servers. The problem was with the event coordinator and catering staff who didn't even know my name as the bride. The gentleman (who I met for the first time that day when I arrived for the dinner) called me the wrong name. I arrived ahead of guests to set up the space and had to seek someone out to serve my mother, my maid of honor and myself a glass of champagne. When spending almost 30K for a rehearsal dinner, I expected slightly more professionalism.
