Great hotel!! The location is excellent. Wonderful and personalized service. I can't say enough about this hotel. There are several quality restaurants within walking distance. It is also near bus transportation .

2 mothers and 2 six years old boys had an amazing stay at The Jefferson hotel. Staff was welcoming, warm and helpful throughout our stay, and the facility was gorgeous. We loved the detail mixing the history and modern design. Didn't expect child friendliness much, however, stuffed animal upon arrival and sweets for turndown were absolutely wonderful touch for our... More

My husband and I stayed 3 nights for our honeymoon. We were greeted with a complimentary bottle of champagne and chocolate covered cherries. Dinner at Plume was expensive but delicious. Service overall was great. We did have to come inside twice to find the valet driver to take the car. Our only complaint would be the $45 nightly charge for... More

Excellent service and facility. We really enjoyed our stay and highly recommend the Jefferson over any other place in DC. Must try the room service for breakfast, it is a little pricey but well worth it. We enjoyed the lemon pancakes and the lobster benedict which were both delicious.

Gorgeous hotel, fabulous room, reception staff and concierge were very helpful. The best staff member was Naggie with Butler service, who is an asset to the hotel but that is where it stops. Air con broke, desk chair and small table were wobbly and no iron to just freshen up a shirt. We only ate once in the restaurant and... More

The Jefferson Hotel is charming! The service, charm, and amenities definitely make up for the relatively small room size. Everything was top quality with attention to detail; beautiful furnishings, turn down service, attentive staff, and safe walking distance to white house, monuments, and great restaurants. Several gathering spots in the public area of the hotel are also very inviting for... More

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

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
