If you want to stay somewhere in Washington and you haven't been asked to the White House then the Jefferson should be your next stop. Apparently even various Presidents have chosen to hold meetings there rather than at home. Like all great hotels what makes it special is the staff. From the doorman to the manager they bend over backwards... More

Best hotel we stayed in in the US. Views not great but everything else was very good. Good spacious room (though two queen beds isn't really suitable for three persons). Nice decor and attentive door staff.

I stayed here with my family and a friend and we have never stayed in such a wonderful hotel! It was immensely luxurious and the room service was delicious! The rooms are divine as well! They have great views. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. When I go back to DC (hopefully soon!), I most certainly will stay at... More

You can't go wrong with this place. Wonderful rooms and all service staff were great. Extremely clean & restaurant has some amazing food at reasonable prices. The rooms are expensive but well worth it.

My wife and I recently completed a two night stay at this nice boutique hotel. The service was friendly and our upgraded room was very nice. The restaurant was closed for dinner so you had to take food service in the bar after breakfast. The bar was very dark and my martini arrived with the glass only about 70% full.... More

My young daughter and I stayed at The Jefferson for a two night "before school" getaway. The hotel is small, but mighty. It is beautifully decorated and very elegant yet cozy. It was immaculate at all times of the day (an amazing feat considering we saw no cleaning staff). The food is superb. The rooms are a bit on the... More

Among the best hotels I have stayed in anywhere: great rooms, outstanding service, nice bar and restaurant. I have stayed here several times for business but would also consider staying for a personal trip.

My wife and I came back to the Jefferson for our second time. The rooms are beautiful with a large bathroom with a soaking tub and separate shower. The service is top notch. There are so many people here to respond for such a small property. Also, a great location to walk to do many different areas.

The most impressive aspect was the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. The hotel was spotlessly clean and so comfortable. A wonderful oasis to return to after touring all day. I would not look for another hotel in Washington.
