The Hay-Adams Debuts Four New Shinola Bikes for Guests Looking to Tour

From our friends at the Hay-Adams Hotel...

This spring, the award-winning Hay-Adams, located steps away from the White House at 800 16th Street, NW, is pleased to debut four new three-speed Shinola bicycles available for guests staying on-property. The bikes are available as a complimentary amenity, on a first-come, first-serve basis for guests 16 years of age and older. They are stylishly equipped with “The Hay-Adams” vanity plates, and the concierge can furnish a helmet and bike lock, as well as cycling maps with points of interest and snack-stopping options along the way. One can even pedal all the way to historic Mount Vernon taking in the Mall and its monuments, the tidal basin, and Potomac River in Alexandria, Virginia on a designated biking trail.

“Washington has become a bike-friendly city in recent years with a majority of our city streets lined with visible bike lanes for riders,” says The Hay-Adams Vice President and General Manager Hans Bruland. “We acquired four Mozi beach cruisers last year, and the bikes became so popular we decided to add to the hotel’s collection. Guests can reserve a bike and tour the beautiful sites of the National Mall at their leisure.”

Additionally, the hotel is happy to arrange for a complimentary car service to pick up guests and their bikes for those who ventured too far from the property and need assistance back. Guests are encouraged to call the main number at (202) 638-6600 and select a pick-up time and location.

The award-winning Hay-Adams is located at 800 16th Street, NW, Washington, DC, 20006, across Lafayette Square from the White House. The historic Hay-Adams offers guests Washington's most prestigious address with views overlooking the White House, Lafayette Square and St. John's Church, the "Church of the Presidents." The hotel is just minutes from the Smithsonian, the Museums, the Washington Monument, the National Mall, as well as convenient to Metro stations and the convention center.
