We have stayed at the Jefferson twice over the past few months and both times everything was outstanding. We selected the smallest room. We chose it over larger rooms because it was perfectly cozy and snug. This is what the classic ocean liners must have felt like. I never slept better. The bathrooms must have cost $200,000 to restore. We... More

We recently stayed at this hotel while attending a conference in DC. The hotel is beautiful and historic (loved the original Jefferson and Adams documents on the wall) and in a great location. The front desk and concierge staff were extremely friendly, accommodating and helpful. The Quill Bar was fantastic as were the cocktails. The only downside to our stay... More

Dear familytravel4_1, Thank you for taking time to post about your recent stay and your kind words about our front office staff. I’m sorry that the Petite Spa was unable to accommodate an appointment during your stay; because we are a smaller spa, our appointments tend to book up. I’d like to apologize for the service issues you encountered with... More

My husband and I stayed at The Jefferson while visiting Washington, DC. Our stay was exceptional - the staff are very helpful in assisting with making reservations and making sure your stay is comfortable. Our room (412) was beautiful and we loved having the extra room that a suite provides. The bathroom spacious - enough for two people to share... More

Great & friendly service - in the evening. Top class wine list @ Plume. The breakfast room lags behind. Lots of conversations amongst the servers & little attention to patrons. Mended holes in the bedsheets don't really match the 5 star status, and neither does an antediluvian air con system which is appallingly noisy

Stayed here several times since last summer. Every time the staff has been warm, quite helpful, and totally service-oriented. The hotel has three public rooms - two beautiful, small spaces & a lovely fireplaced library to relax in. Each was available every time we passed by & we read in the library twice. The breakfast offers large portions, lunch at... More

We chose this hotel because it had the most positive reviews and we wanted a romantic getaway. Considering the price I thought it would be extravagant. The site advertises that they have "many nooks and crannies" to explore, but in reality there is not much to see except for a "Reading/Book Room" which was reserved for private guests the entire...

This hotel couldn't be in a better location as it is 5-10 mins from the White House and the national mall. The room although relatively small was great and the staff were very helpful and extremely friendly. The only compliant I would have is that the breakfast was good but overpriced and the staff in the greenhouse restaurant were not... More
