This hotel is stupendously beautiful inside and out! Their website has better photos than I could manage but even they don't do justice to the opulence of the public areas. The rooms are a bit tired but apparently there is another renovation ongoing (2015). Lemaire. the in-house Fine Dining Restaurant is very fine indeed. Be sure to reserve in advance.... More

This hotel has beautiful architecture and is located in a decent area of Richmond. There is a nice, quiet area outside to sit and read a book. My room was nothing better than I've got at most other hotels, however I travel on the federal government rate so the rooms I end up in are not the cream of the... More

We go every year at Christmas as a mini family reunion spot. Always happy to return. Kids love it and so do the adults. I think our favorite part is to sit in the lobby or downstairs by the tree and people watch.

Stayed in a suite for romantic getaway pkg ---- champagne delivered, chocolates, dinner at LeMaire. Oh my! Can't say enough good about the Jefferson! Do take the time to look at the history display in the lower lobby, enjoy tea, rooms are elegantly appointed, staff are on top of everything you could want, dinner was very good, lingering, never rushed.

If you ever have the chance stop by for their Sunday brunch. Reservations are a must, but you won't be unsatisfied? They have the full breakfast items plus lunch. The raw oysters were really tasty. It was a buffet.

We stayed at the hotel for two nights but did not want to leave. The deluxe room we stayed in was gorgeous and very comfortable. Every staff member was helpful and friendly, the shop was nice, and the restaurants served us great food. We hope to return some day for another visit.

We have stayed at the Jefferson several times. The hotel is lovely with its atmosphere of old charm in the public rooms. The soaring glass ceiling in the foyer is wonderful. The hotel was decorated for the holidays and looked special. The rooms are a good size and are tasteful in decor. The concierge was very helpful. The breakfast was... More

The hotel is beautiful and Lemaire is awesome. The room was clean and the toiletries, towels and bed are nice. The hotel is obviously old so there are a couple of little things that could use some fixing. Overall though it's a fantastic experience that shouldn't be missed while in Richmond.
