I have been there in July 2014. The hotel is in a great location. only 10 minutes walk to the white house. The staff is friendly and the room is huge with a comfortable bed. I liked every moment while i were there. If i have a chance to visit Washington DC again. This hotel will be my first choice.

Lovely place to stay with excellent staff and a lovely environment. Rooms are well sized and nicely decorated. Excellent bed. Some rooms are without baths so make a special request if this is important to you. We were quickly moved once I asked for one with a bath. Concierge is excellent. Our standard room looked on the building next door... More

For my retirement my wife booked a few days at the Jefferson. This 5 Star is absolutely wonderful. From the moment you arrive you are treated like family, and they go to great lengths to make sure everything is perfect. Here I must mention their staff who are phenomenal.

it had been a few years since I'd been in the hotel and the remodel of this Washington classic hotel worked a magical transformation. It's now even more elegant with a much lighter (and more beautiful) feel than the stuffy, dark hotel of bygone generations. The hotel retains its historic feel--you'll definitely know you're in a DC landmark from the... More

The quote in the title of this review is a quote from my 3-year old son during our two-night stay in May 2015. He and his 5-year old brother were immediately sold on The Jefferson upon check-in when the receptionist rolled out the red Radio Flyer wagon of stuffed animals for them to choose a gift. The hotel services and... More

Everyone in this hotel aims to make you feel at home. There is coffee in the morning, sweet tea in the afternoon, and a bite of chocolate at night. An elegant, flower-filled dining room, a quiet and welcoming library, and a buzzing bar offer something for everyone. Special thanks to Chris, the concierge, who gave me a tour of the... More
