We spent the weekend of July 26 at the Jefferson. It wasn't great, it was fantastic. We were met outside by the wonderful front desk person, Anna. She helped us in, showed us our room, and offered us wonderful hospitality. We met with Cliff, the wonderfully helpful concierge. It was a very special anniversary for us, and the hotel treated...

My wife and I enjoy fine hotels. We think this may have been the best hotel experience of our lives. Just very fine facilities; wonderfully understated elegance; and warm, friendly, attentive staff. Every aspect of our stay was excellent. We enjoyed the tasting menu at Plume with premium wine pairings, explained expertly by the fine sommelier.

A wonderful hotel in a perfect location if you want to spend a romantic weekend in DC. We booked a suite that was facing a quiet courtyard and so the room was absolutely quiet. Upon our arrival the front desk staff was helpful but at the same time not trying to push something that you don't want. We had just... More

Incredible staff and excellent accommodations. The use of the house car was an added bonus. I enjoyed the room service but wish they would expand the menu to include less expensive items such as bar menu items like pizza and burgers. It's hard to eat gourmet entrees for every meal.

Beautiful hotel in a great location! From the moment you step in the door, to the moment you leave, the staff is friendly, wonderful, and accommodating. The hotel and rooms are beautifully appointed. Complimentary water and wifi, shortbread cookies, turn down service and choice of morning newspaper are just some of the amenities. And the beds and linen are divine…... More

We do not travel very much, but when we do travel we like to be comfortable. We could not have picked a better hotel to stay at for our trip to DC. From the minute we arrived and walked in the front door we were addressed by name and treated like family. We loved being within walking distance, sometimes a... More

Perfect hotel in a great location to visit all of the great spots of Washington DC. We sadly didn't eat at the main restaurant but had several evenings in the great bar which was perfect. The rooms were of a good size and the staff was ready to help in any way. Will be back there hopefully very soon

This elegant gem is an insiders dream venue for private meetings and dinners. One of the finest boutique hotels in DC with exquisite surroundings, superb restaurant and bar and extraordinary service. A short distance away from larger destination hotels but a favorite for Washington insiders. Many political meetings, including presidential campaigns, as well as important business meetings have been held... More

If you want a more personalized hotel and are tired of the big chain hotels that can't remember you are guest there, then The Jefferson is the hotel for you. Cannot say enough good things about this boutique hotel. All the staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel room (deluxe king) was goregous. The hotel itself is beautiful. We had... More
