In this discreet, five-star luxury hotel designed in the Italian Renaissance-style, everything is impeccable. The hotel stands where John Quincy Adams, the personal secretary of Abraham Lincoln, and Henry Adams, his grandson, lived.
They were also both writers though rebuilt in the late 1920s and renovated several times, the building preserves the memory of its intellectual past. The 145 rooms, including 21 suites, beautifully appointed with antique furniture, have enormous charm. Those on the south side have a breath-taking view of the White House. The staff is very attentive and helpful, especially if you need information about the many museums and monuments in the neighbourhood, or just want to explore the surrounding streets. Don't miss the Episcopalian St John's Church nearby. Pew 54 is reserved for US presidents.
