Out for our annual Christmas weekend, The Jefferson met and exceeded every expectation. The friendly staff (but one concierge) was very generous in attending to our every need and greeted us with a smile and comfort. The room at The Jefferson was beautifully appointed and large for an historic building. It's been a long time since I haven't missed my... More

I have stayed at this hotel 3 times in the last 3 years and have found it to be consistently top notch. The common areas feel elegant and intimate at the same time. The staff are gracious and helpful without being intrusive. The rooms, while not huge, are big by DC standards and are well appointed (although a few more... More

The Jefferson is is located in a beautiful, old (with updated amenities) Washington building within easy walking distance of the White House. It has warm and welcoming public spaces. Room and bar service are excellent. The beds and rooms as a whole are incredibly comfortable and well designed and I would like to permanently inhabit the shower. However, this hotel... More

I didn't want to leave. Relaxing, intimate, beautiful and everything you'd hope for in a 5star hotel. Something would have to go terribly wrong for someone to give this establishment a bad review, because this staff is proactive and professional!
