We recently had two nights at the Jefferson and it was an amazing experience from the early morning check in to our departure. It has a wonderful old world feeling with beautiful period decor. The amazing huge bath tub was a delight. Staff were very welcoming and efficient and nothing was too much trouble for them.

The Jefferson is gorgeous. Everything is done to a T. All the staff are very courteous. The rooms are classic. We had a room with 2 queen beds for the four of us, and it was quite spacious. The washroom was perhaps the best part of the room, adorned in marble, with a TV in the mirror, nice robes and... More

We recently spent a weekend at The Jefferson while visiting Washington for the first time. It is a luxurious yet welcoming boutique hotel with very attentive staff. The location is also great, within a few blocks of the White House and a subway station. We travelled with our two kids (ages 5 and 10) and according to the website the... More

We stayed at The Jefferson from August 14 to 17th and experienced a perfect execution of service and style from everyone we met. Upon arrival, the front desk staff were warm and accommodating, even paying extra attention to our young children by wheeling out a wagon filled with stuffed animals and allowing them to select one to keep. The concierge... More

We visit Washington frequently on business and usually stay in inexpensive hotels in Arlington but in the dog days of summer when Congress & lobbyists have gone on vacation the pricey downtown hotels go on sale and we stay there. We have always enjoyed eating at Plume, the prix fixe restaurant at the Jefferson, and wondered what it would be... More

My wife and I spent two nights at The Jefferson, on 10th and 11th August. If you travel to Washington DC, this is definitely the place to stay (especially for holidays purposes). The hotel is simply beautiful, charming and full of character. A must in Washington DC.

While a little pricey, The Jefferson had a special offer (stay two nights get a third free) when we were in town. The service we received was more than we expected. The front desk was very polite and accommodating after we checked in late due to an accident on our way to DC. After our late check in, it was... More

Not cheap, but good value if you like good service, quality surroundings and an excellent location. This hotel is small enough to feel personal and yet big enough to have a good bar, good restaurant and decent amenities. Highly recommended.

Recently celebrated our tenth anniversary at the Jefferson. We have been to DC many times and have celebrated prior anniversaries at the Hay Adams but wanted to try something different. The Jefferson did not dissapoint. The room was compact but elegant and the overall feel of the hotel was more like luxury apartments rather than a hotel. While the meal... More

The Jefferson hotel is a wonderful property located just a few blocks from the White House and should not be missed. From the minute you arrive at the hotel you know you have made the right choice. The staff are friendly, welcoming and extremely helpful and knowledgeable. Check-in was fast and easy and any questions we had were either quickly... More
