Elegant but not stuffy. Friendly but not too much. Efficient but unobtrusive. We loved our stay, and as my husband said, it's a real find. Our visit had a dual purpose - business and pleasure - and it's a great place to stay for either. The hotel is beautiful - only 95 rooms - and intimate in a great location... More

We recently stayed at The Jefferson for 3 nights and couldn't have enjoyed it more! The hotel itself is elegant and conveniently located and the rooms are quiet and peaceful - with spacious bathrooms and very comfortable beds. What really sets the The Jefferson apart from other high-end hotels however, is their collective dedication to customer service. Every employee we... More

What a delightful stay. Spent five nights at this great establishment. Everyone was super-friendly and the room was simply the best. From all of the room's lamps having working three-way bulbs, to there not being a speck of dust or hair anywhere. The most comfortable beds ever, and the best hotel I have ever stayed in. I always book high-end,... More

We just stayed for two nights at the Jefferson and are in love. If this hotel would be in LA we would sell our apartment and move in! The rooms are perfect. The bed is wonderful with an incredible mattress and magical pillows. The bathroom and shower are perfect (There even is a TV screen in the bathroom mirror). Upon... More

I usually stay at the Madison around the corner but it was fully booked. I booked this though corporate travel and from the moment I arrived I was very pleased and pampered. It was a wonderful experience and a great hotel. Beautiful, comfortable room and the bed was clean and luxurious. Slippers and robe were a nice touch. The room... More

The room was very nicely appointed; the photos do the place justice, unlike some sites that manage to find pics that flatter the location but don't accurately prepare you for the reality. Like everyone else, we loved the TV-in-the-bathroom mirror. Bath was a nice size, not huge but big enough. Room was quiet, a bit small but again, nothing to... More
