We do not travel very much, but when we do travel we like to be comfortable. We could not have picked a better hotel to stay at for our trip to DC. From the minute we arrived and walked in the front door we were addressed by name and treated like family. We loved being within walking distance, sometimes a... More

Perfect hotel in a great location to visit all of the great spots of Washington DC. We sadly didn't eat at the main restaurant but had several evenings in the great bar which was perfect. The rooms were of a good size and the staff was ready to help in any way. Will be back there hopefully very soon

This elegant gem is an insiders dream venue for private meetings and dinners. One of the finest boutique hotels in DC with exquisite surroundings, superb restaurant and bar and extraordinary service. A short distance away from larger destination hotels but a favorite for Washington insiders. Many political meetings, including presidential campaigns, as well as important business meetings have been held... More

If you want a more personalized hotel and are tired of the big chain hotels that can't remember you are guest there, then The Jefferson is the hotel for you. Cannot say enough good things about this boutique hotel. All the staff are friendly and helpful. The hotel room (deluxe king) was goregous. The hotel itself is beautiful. We had... More

Service was great, the Hotel was upscale and very nice. We had a nice room with a view of the Washington Memorial. It is a long walk to the Mall, but can be done. Walk to the White House took about 15 minutes. Coffee in lobby was a nice touch and tasty. Free Wi-Fi was nice. Would return for sure.

Some of the positives: friendly staff, the concierge recommended a restaurant we tried called Zaytinya's, which we enjoyed, hotel was very clean, location to the... More

We were impressed and that's hard to do. This is a wonderful boutique hotel ranking with the very best we've stayed in. Excellent service, amenities, and staff. They even provided bottles of water on those hot days. It was a little far for us to walk to the National Mall although we did it in hot weather but it's not... More

To be honest, I had thought of giving 4 stars...I'm a tough customer and I like my high-end hotels perfect. That being said, the staff of The Jefferson was so awesome I had to give it a five. Seriously, I've traveled the world and only The Mandarin Oriental in Tokyo can compare to this place....in fact, what's unusual about The... More

We stayed in August for two nights family of five (three children) after traveling and sleeping in the top hotels on the east coast . It wasn't the most expensive one but for sure the best by far .
