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

My husband and I booked The Jefferson Hotel for a spur of the moment trip to D.C. just before the 4th of July weekend. The hotel is outstanding - from the service, to the room itself, to the breakfast. It couldn't be any better. Everything is top notch. The bed was super comfortable with beautiful linens. The room was a... More

My boyfriend surprised me for my birthday with dinner at Plume, the only five star restaurant in DC, located in The Jefferson. After dinner, he revealed that we were actually staying overnight at the hotel. I was ecstatic. Everything was perfect! The luxurious room was well furnished, extremely comfortable, clean, and smelled lovely. The ambiance was so romantic. They even... More

We recently spent a week at The Jefferson and it was fantastic. The staff is friendly, helpful and professional. We felt welcomed and pampered at every turn. The room was simply beautiful and the bathroom luxurious. We were a short walk from the White House and most museums. Plenty of eating places nearby. Being an avid coffee drinker, my only... More

From the doormen to reception, from bar staff ti housekeeping, everything and everyone was so professional. Our suite was superb, and we were made to feel as... More

My partner and I had the pleasure of staying at The Jefferson for a second time following some business in nearby Georgetown and were glad to have spent some time at The Jefferson before returning home. Even with the brief, one-night stay, we experienced everything we've come to love about the hotel - unparalleled service, unpretentious luxury, and unrivaled settings.... More
