Upon arrive we were greeting be warm and friendly staff and shown to our room, with bell boy looking after the luggage.... More

The Jefferson is the outstanding hotel in DC. It is intimate, has beautifully furnished rooms, high quality foods but it is the level of service and exceptional staff that make the hotel a step above other luxury properties.

This has to be the best hotel experience we have ever had! The service is personal, friendly and we felt at home from the moment we exited the cab. The wine list is extensive and one is truly spoilt for choice. Do yourself a favour and stay here, it will be your best Hotel decision thus far!

On our way from our vacation home in North Carolina, we stopped in D.C. to break up the long ride at the end of a superb vacation. We had learned that the Jefferson is pet-friendly and it is. Our 80 pound lab was quite welcomed, with his own bed, water bowl, food bowl and bottled water. We were in a... More

The Jefferson is in a great location, the rooms are spacious, comfortable, and very well decorated. The staff at the hotel is absolutely fantastic and could not have asked for a better experience. Close to everything you could possibly need during your trip. I highly recommend The Jefferson for your next stay in DC.

The Jefferson is one of the nicest luxury hotels that I have ever stayed in. It had everything: great location, great service, great food and very nice rooms. There were a lot of details about this hotel that separates it from the pack. The most amazing, I thought, was the availability of the house car that could take you anywhere... More

We stayed at The Jefferson for three nights. The doormen were quick to help, front-desk was very accommodating when we arrived early. Our room was very nicely decorated and spacious, we couldn’t help to say “WOW”. Although our room was facing the street, it was not noisy. The air-conditioning was noisy overnight, so I finally told the front-desk, so she... More

Wow, I don't know where to begin. The staff is welcoming and attentive, but like another reviewer said, not in your face or over the top. We were greeted at the curb when our cab dropped us off, welcomed into the lobby and given a tour of the property by one of the bell staff. Such a nice touch! The... More

I cannot think of one thing that I didn't like about this place! European in style and ambience. Staff is 5 Star for attentiveness and friendliness. Rooms are perfect. Location is a positive (16th & M). It is now my "go to" hotel in Washington.

Spent three nights at The Jefferson while in D.C. on vacation in July. Incredible luxurious rooms, nice touches like free slippers, birthday cupcakes upon arrival, and turn-down service at night. Doormen were beyond helpful with taxis, and always had an ice-cold bottle of water for us upon our departure or arrival from the hotel which was life-saving during the hot/humid... More
