We've always wanted to stay here, so we decided to splurge on our anniversary. We stayed one night on the breakfast package, which also included valet parking. The extra money for the package was a good deal. The service was excellent from the valet to the front desk to the breakfast wait staff. Everything was very clean and our room... More

We have stayed at the Jefferson Hotel several times; often we make a stop in Richmond when we are travelling South from DC. The primary reason we stop in Richmond is to stay at the Jefferson. (The Jefferson is undergoing renovations now, but it created no inconvenience for us.) The grand nature of the public rooms lead one to the... More

The Jefferson is always a treat. But wrapped in the "Savor Richmond" package it's also a good deal. We were greeted with the distinctive pimento cheese appetizer and delightful craft beer delivered to our room on arrival. Then the snappy livery service deposited us at the nearby Altra Theater for an evening performance. The $50 gift card covered dessert with... More

When I booked our stay at the Jefferson, I had no idea how grand a hotel it was. When we arrived in Richmond, we were completely lost - I had neglected to bring the directions which had been thoughtfully e-mailed to me by the hotel previous to our arrival - no problem, the gracious hotel staff talked us through the...

Stayed a night doing business in Richmond and this is truly a gem. Richmond is not the most enjoyable city to visit by any means as most know but when you stay at the Jefferson, you are in for a treat! The friendliness of the staff, the details and superb cleanliness of the room, to the great meals I enjoyed... More

We made dinner plans at the Jefferson hotel and were taken aback by the architecture and history of the hotel. This 1900s hotel was, and still is, a prime example of early American opulence and grandeur during its hey day years to present. Although it underwent several expansions and renovations, it did not change its architecture "bones" maintaining it's appeal... More

My husband and I have been taking weekend trips to the Jefferson for several years. We have small children and try to escape just the two of us several times a year. The Jefferson has been our special place. The lobby is gorgeous, the front desk is very courteous and welcoming, the rooms are clean and comfortable, the food at... More

My husband surprised me with a weekend at the Jefferson - I thought we were going to stay in a local B&B. The hotel makes you feel special from the moment you pull up at the front door, and all the staff were incredibly friendly and helpful. We had a beautiful king room on the sixth floor, which we understood... More

When I checked in to the Jefferson at the last minute with no reservation, I wasn't quite sure what to expect. The hotel itself is beautiful, but often with these older historical properties they start to fall apart at the seams after a while and the rooms aren't that great. That definitely wasn't the case here - my room (453)... More
