My wife and I travelled to Richmond recently and the highlight of our trip was the Jefferson Hotel. Yes it is an older hotel, but that is where all the charm lies! The service and staff were absolutely perfect. The bar was really sophisticated and very reasonably priced (shockingly). Our room, although on the small side (owing to it being... More

In town for wedding. Have seen web photos and reviews which looked beautiful. First night went down to TJs bar and found it closed for private party. Notice from hotel when we made reservation would have been nice. Went to LaMaire bar and had bar menu. Service great! Food okay. Rooms at Jefferson feel dated. Carpet, baths and linens. We... More

Just loved it! Lovely, quiet rooms, friendly staff and the lobby is a marvel of old south charm and beauty. The staircase is reputed to be the one in the scene of Gone With The Wind where Rhett declares to Scarlett, "he does not give a damn." Excellent food in the bar and restaurant. Walking distance (although hotel has limo... More

The Jefferson is a very classy, comfortable and friendly place. Our room was large and well furnished, the public spaces are gorgeous and the staff is excellent. An especially nice feature is the free limo service all day anywhere within a couple of miles of the hotel. Prices were very reasonable for a hotel at this level.

This hotel is gorgeous. The staff is extremely friendly and accommodating. I loved the cute little shop on the bottom floor, which came in handy when I needed something for the kids. It is expensive, but it was worth it. I hear around Christmas time they have a huge display downstairs and you can do a Russian Tea Service. We... More

My husband, 2 kids and I stayed at the Jefferson this summer. What a treat! We were treated to welcoming and hospitable staff from the bellman to the concierge to the housekeeping staff. The hotel was undergoing major renovation and yet we never saw a speck of dust or heard a peep during our weekend stay. The room's furnishings were... More

Walk into the lobby and find yourself lost in the atmosphere a very elegant and elaborate old time hotel with the updates to keep it top of the line modern. You feel you've entered a different era. Rooms are spacious, very clean and comfortable. Service is impeccable and the staff both cordial and hard working. Did not get to use... More

The Jefferson Hotel is one of a kind in that it combines great guestrooms with wonderful service. It has a tons of charm. The lobby looked like it stepped out of a movie set. The restaurants are great, both in food quality and service. To give one example when I asked what kind of fruit they had and was told... More

It was a wonderful, brilliant experience. Our friends had a wedding at this hotel, and we stayed there for a couple days. I couldn't imagine a better or a more romantic place. The service was outstanding, as well as the food and lodging. Highly recommend
