It was great to see this beautiful hotel. We arrived in a terrible storm. The bellhop was so accommodating-our minivan and family of 5 was a mess from a long road trip. I suspect we are not the average Jefferson guest. The morning we left they had transformed the lower lobby for a convention reception. Many businessmen around. The hotel... More

Just minutes from the highway you're warmly greeted by valet service at the entrance of this grand hotel. Spectacular Tiffany glass ceilings create a memorable impression. Harpist and high tea at check in, but disappointingly, we didn't know it would be so popular that you need to reserve this in advance. Our room was very spacious and did have a... More

Its been almost 30 years since I have felt so poorly treated at a hotel. When I walked in a room people turned to look at me as if I had something on my head. When I got up to leave guest stated "he's finally gone". I guess If I forgot that I was African American. However I was quickly... More

We stopped in just to see the interior, and it was gorgeous. Walk around and see as much of the property as you can. All of it is so beautiful. Grand is a great way to describe it. It is well worth a stop for teatime or brunch. Look for the alligators inside and out. Travelationship.com

There are hotels that fall back on there name, like the Saint Regis in DC and the service is OK. Not the Jefferson from the time you pull up in front of the hotel to the minute that you leave everything is great. Last night we came back from the opera late and did not have dinner yet, we went...

My husband and I booked The Jefferson for a 2 night stay to celebrate our anniversary, I had had a few meals and meetings here, but hadn't ever stayed and we wanted a quick getaway. The lobby is beautiful, and the decor is historic and grand, but our room and the rest of the hotel were a disappointment. I travel... More

This hotel is oozing with character and history. The staff was very professional, the dinner and breakfast excellent along with the service. My wife and I will definitely be coming back the next time we're in Richmond.

Hands down the best brunch I've ever had. I've eaten brunches at the top of the top around the world, from Hawaii to France, Crystal Cruises to New York. This was the best. The array of food is unmatched. All of it is totally fresh. The location is phenomenal in the rotunda of this historic hotel. Service was great. Just... More
