The Obama family has moved to DC! Although they are not quite in the White House, they are temporarily staying across the street at the Hay Adams Hotel. The hotel has a long DC history. Open since 1928, the Hay Adams was renovated in 2001 by DC designer Thomas Pheasant. The traditional-styled rooms overlook the White House, Lafayette Park, and St. John’s Church. See more hotel photos below the jump...
The Obamas had requested the Blair House, the government official guest residence across Pennsylvania Avenue from the White House, where presidents-elect often stay before taking the oath of office. But the Bush administration said that the Blair House is booked through Jan. 15. We think the Hay Adams is a good temporary place for the Obamas.
Thanks to AT DC reader Amy for sending us great information!
