  • WASHINGTON, D.C. – The Hay-Adams, one of the world’s leading luxury hotels, is pleased to announce that it has received recognition as one of the 2014 Best Hotels in the USA by U.S. News & World Report.


    The 2014 Best Hotels list recognizes and ranks hotels based on an unbiased methodology that includes the collective opinion of travel experts and guests, expressed through online reviews and ratings. To create this year's rankings, U.S. News factored in the prominence of industry awards a hotel received along with its reputation among travel experts and guests. In total, 1,693 U.S. hotels, 271 Caribbean hotels, 342 Mexican hotels and 223 Canadian hotels were evaluated for the 2014 rankings.


    Hotels named "Best" in their destination are typically the properties that have ranked in the top 30 percent of U.S. News-evaluated properties in that region. A smaller, more selective group of hotels are among the top 10 percent of all ranked luxury hotels in the United States, the Caribbean, Mexico or Canada and received a "Best Hotels in the USA," "Best Hotels in the Caribbean," "Best Hotels in Mexico" or "Best Hotels in Canada" award. The 2014 Best Hotels rankings are available online at http://travel.usnews.com/Hotels.


    “We’re thrilled to be named among the Best Hotels in the USA by U.S. News & World Report,” says Hans Bruland, Vice President and General Manager of The Hay-Adams. “We strive daily to be the best of the best and for our hotel and staff to be recognized is a true honor.”


    "The 2014 Best Hotels were selected because they meet the highest standards of travel experts and guests alike," said Miriam Weiner, travel editor for U.S. News. "These properties are renowned in the travel industry for their luxury amenities and quality customer service."
