My wife and I chose a long weekend in DC to celebrate our 30th Anniversary. The accommodations, the staff, the food, and the location were all superb! The atmosphere is one of historic luxury, but with a wonderful, friendly staff.

I can't believe I didn't review this hotel right away, but since we are planning another trip in December, it prompted me to give this lovely hotel it's due. We stayed at the Jefferson in December of 2013 and booked through our Virtuoso travel agent. We were upgraded from a Deluxe Room to a Deluxe Suite and it was such... More

quick one night stay in DC and really enjoyed how different it felt from the normal large group /chain hotels normally found in city centres. Very helpful staff especially those on the front desk. Nice bar too.

My wife and I spent 5 nights at The Jefferson as our base to tour around the Washington DC sites. As we pulled up to have our car valet parked, I noticed the extremely well dressed gentlemen and ladies - basically either high end business people or diplomats. We had our tourist outfits on - bright sneakers, shorts, and let's... More

I'm just writing in response to a stay at this hotel recently on 9/20. While it was a lovely stay and the hotel beautiful and staff very accommodating and friendly, I was grossly overcharged for my stay completely rendering the remainder of my vacation useless due to a complete depletion of funds. Before making my reservation I calledthe hotel to... More
