I stayed at the Jefferson on the recommendation of a friend who lives in DC. It was simply perfect! The architecture, interiors, and food make this an excellent location for business or personal travel. The beds are heavenly! I was there on business, so a good night's sleep was necessary. I found the room to be luxurious and quiet. The... More

I've stayed at this hotel twice now with my husband who came to D.C. for business. It is a great location, an 8-10 minute walk to 15th and P Street where you'll find an array of great restaurants, some shops and a Whole Foods Market. It's also a short walk to the White House. We fell in love with this... More

I stayed very briefly - for only one night, so my impressions of the hotel are somewhat limited. The font desk personnel: - graciously extended my check out time to 3 pm - was always smiling when I was passing by, yet discreet enough not to bother me - door people are very professional and warm at the same time....

This was our first visit to DC, and the Jefferson Hotel is a Gem. In a great location, 4 blocks from the white house and about a 30 minute walk from the Lincoln memorial. The rooms are lovely, well appointed and delightfully decorated with space to lounge and rest. The staff are a delight, very willing to help in any... More

We returned again to our favorite hotel in the US for a quick overnight stay to visit our daughter. From the moment we set foot outside of our cab door upon arriving, until the cab door closed upon departure, we were treated like royalty.

The Jefferson is in a great location, just a short walk to the White House and just a couple of blocks from the metro. The hotel is fabulous, with excellent comfort (particularly the bed, I have never slept so well!) and fantastic room amenities. The staff are so friendly and helpful. I will definitely be recommending this hotel.

Stayed two nights at the Jefferson on a business trip. Very stylish, very comfortable, very unpretentious. People incredibly friendly and helpful, and clearly very proud of their hotel (justifiably). Rooms have that historic, Jeffersonian feel in a very welcoming way. For business travelers, great choice.
