Love, love, love this hotel. My stay here came after four weeks on the road staying at a host of hotels. I was here with my son for a few days of museum visits. Location: While the hotel was not right next to the mall, I didn't feel like the 15 minute walk was an issue. When we were too... More

This is my favorite hotel in DC and in my experience there is nothing better in the city. It combines elegant design, sophistication and luxury with all the modern amenities. The hotel is very well managed and you feel welcomed from the greeting at the entrance to the excellent room service. Conveniently located with great service.

Personable, friendly staff in a truly wonderfully maintained hotel. You feel like you are at home with your own staff, that's how good they are. There's nowhere better in DC. Impressive at every level!

We stayed at the Jefferson from July 20-23 and we thought it was amazing. The staff was very friendly and willing to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Pros: accommodating staff, wonderful food (truly), clean room with amazing shower. Cons: $45 a night parking fee, food is wonderful but expect to pay a good deal (breakfast was close to... More

If you want to experience historical elegance, then look no further than the Jefferson Hotel. The woodwork in this hotel is so incredibly beautiful, and the details in the floors and the casings are remarkable. While it is true the sleeping rooms are quite small, they are well appointed and beautifully decorated. In addition, and unlike some other luxury hotels,... More

Everything about our stay at The Jefferson- from the decor to food to the service- was pretty perfect. The bed was the most comfortable hotel mattress I have slept on, period. I can also highly recommend upgrading to a room with one of the MASSIVE freestanding bathtubs. The staff is both friendly and attentive, and I can't say enough about... More

The Jefferson is an absolute experience - nothing is too much for the staff. It may seem expensive however much is included in the price from phone calls anywhere to the turn down service. Thefood is wonderful and the Quill bar has a piano player on the week-end. Have a facial and feel renewed!

Rooms are delightful. Restaurants and shops are nearby. The main asset of the hotel is its staff. Tired and unsure of where to take our three grandchildren for a meal the front desk jumped into action. They found a restaurant, put us in the house car, and sent us to Logan's Tavern. I know it is expensive but so are... More
