Daily Pampering: The Federal Suite at D.C.'s Hay-Adams
The 112th Congress may have started yesterday, but we can guarantee the new congressmen and senators won't be booking this room if they haven't yet secured lodgings in D.C. The Hay-Adams, a member of Leading Hotels of the World (and home to the Obama family before they moved into the White House) offers up a chic suite for those willing to part with enough cash to stay.
The Federal Suite at The Hay-Adams in Washington, D.C. provides a magnificent view of the front of the White House and the north lawn. Designed by architect Thomas Pheasant, the suite boasts two bedrooms, three full bathrooms, and a separate living room with a panoramic view of the White House, Lafayette Park, and St. John's Church. Want to play "who can spot Bo (Obama)?" The luxurious master bedroom opens onto a step-out Juliet balcony, and the canopy bed is fitted with over-head reading lights and Frette linens. The bathroom features a marble tub and shower, Etro toiletries, brass fixtures and a state-of-the-art Toto toilet; it is more like a private spa than a hotel bathroom.
The suite starts at $8,550 per night. We wonder if we can also conjure up a ride on Marine One, or perhaps just a motorcade to accompany us back to the airport?
