1. Washington DC.
The Hay-Adams delivers low-key luxe – staff say ‘nothing is overlooked but the White House’. It was built on the site of the former homes of statesmen John Hay and Henry Adams in the 1920s. It is in the heart of the US capital, so once you’ve seen Air Force One land and spotted the Trumps, you can walk to the Washington Monument and the city’s excellent free museums.
