This Halloween no creaking coffins are needed for a night or two of haunting retiring at one of DC’s most well-known luxury hotels. Just across from the White House, The Hay-Adams is hosting Count Dracula and ghost-loving guests who book the “Transylvania Suite” for one or two nights over Halloween weekend (from $2,995 per night).
This fit-for-a-president suite overlooking Lafayette Park will include an expansive canopy bed dressed in custom designed Italian linens, embellished with cobwebs and creepily embroidered personalized pillows. The surprises start right at check-in, from a frighteningly outfitted butler to escort guests to the skull-adorned suite, to a gift collection of old and new horror film DVDs, and more.
Decorated to mimic a gentrified haunted house, the suite will feature perks like a welcome amenity from Pastry Chef Josh Short, tricked with blood-curdling cocktails for two delivered to the Halloween lair, followed by a three-course dinner paired with wines which includes a spidery-inspired dessert, served in the suite’s dining room. A diabolically concocted turn-down surprise will be delivered prior to retiring for the night. The following morning guests can celebrate daybreak with a lavish breakfast in bed at their leisure, and who can resist a spicy Bloody Scary to complete the morning feast?
Sounds like a perfectly luxe way to start the holiday season off with a bang, don’t you agree?
