The Jefferson is a warm and inviting hotel, from the moment we arrived we felt very welcome and that they were genuinely happy that we had chosen to stay with them. We had a 1BR/1Bath suite with a living room (pull-out sofa). The bathroom was quite luxurious with a soaking tub, double vanity, glass shower stall and TV. There is... More

Our stay at The Jefferson was fantastic!! First off, the hotel is gorgeous!! An area landmark property which has retained it's old Washington charm and grandeur! I wanted to travel down to DC to see my daughter but had to bring our Russian Wolfhound, Ariel, with us. I called around to several hotels in the area which were listed on... More

Outstanding. My wife and I just returned from a kids-free, getaway weekend to Washington (we live in the Philly suburbs) and could not have chosen a better hotel for it. As mentioned by others, some deluxe rooms feature soaking tubs and/or a view of the Washington Monument. I had mentioned when reserving the room that we were celebrating my birthday... More

...the best hotel we've ever stayed in. Kind regards Andrew & Erin Sullivan + 3 (The review requires a minimum of 200 characters so here are some adjectives to describe The Jefferson: charming, beautiful, impressive, homely, welcoming, immaculate, enviable and perfect).

My husband and I have stayed at the Jefferson before and were delighted with the whole experience- our room was gorgeous, the special features of this boutique hotel were worth being out of the way and worth the price. This stay, however, our room was so small we couldn't open our large suitcase anywhere but in the bathroom. There was... More

Dear JillRdub, Thank you for taking the time to post about your recent stay with us. While I was pleased to read that the majority of your experience was a positive one, I’d like to apologize for the size of the room. Being a historic city hotel, some of our rooms tend to run a little smaller than others, but... More

From the moment I booked it was a sublime experience. The staff could not have done more to make us feel welcome and special. It really has the most magnificent staff and is a beautiful hotel. Can't wait to go back.

We stayed at the Jefferson with our two small children. Upon arrival they greeted us with a toy wagon and has two small robes and slippers waiting in our room with their name in letters on the shower. It was such a special welcome. The Hoyle was beautiful. We loved the small size and good location. We had a small... More

We stayed at The Jefferson last year at Christmastime and enjoyed it so much that we decided to repeat the experience this year. We were able to get the same room with the amazing views of the Washington Monument. As always the Christmas decorations were just beautiful and the staff so accommodating. We treated our daughter and her family to... More

You need to stay here. We stayed here for a long weekend - highly recommend it. Gorgeous atmosphere, great location, impeccable food/bar. We've stayed at the Four Seasons in Georgetown - the Jefferson is comparable, at a much lower price. It's a few blocks north of the White House, and is a 5 minute cab ride from Georgetown.

We stayed at The Jefferson DC for 3 nights in mid December to celebrate my husband's 50th birthday. As soon as we stepped out of the taxi the service was top notch. The young woman who checked us into our room went out of her way to accommodate our needs. She quickly stored our bags so we could sightsee until... More
