We went down to Richmond for a special event over a long weekend. The event was at the Jefferson Hotel. I had never been there, had not even heard of it. I mentioned to a colleague where we were going and said that it looked very nice on its website. He stopped what he was doing and said "you are... More

We didn't stay at the hotel, but stopped in to see the lobby and have a drink. The decor is very special, with beautiful mosaics everywhere. Wonderful ceilings. Very classy lobby bar also. Based on friends' comments, the rooms are excellent also.

We recently stayed here for a quick overnight. The staff was wonderful-every interaction we had with the staff was lovely. They were friendly and attentive. I cannot speak more highly of them. We stayed in a renovated suite. It was great-large bathroom, rooms were spacious. the only hitches were that each table had glass cover which moved. It seemed unsafe.... More

We recently stayed an evening at the Jefferson Hotel, on a business trip. When we arrived, our room was not ready but a beautiful tea was being served and a harpist was playing in the lobby. The lobby is quite elegant and the staff were helpful, polite and professional. Our room was lovely and well appointed in an English manor... More

We have stayed at the Jefferson several times. The property is simply lovely. The staff is wonderful. The restaurant, Lemier, has excellent food in a very romantic setting. Room service is great. We have stayed in every type of room they have, from the Governors suite to the basic rooms, and all are impressive and very well appointed.

Our family spent one night in the Jefferson Hotel as a splurge during a tour of Southern Virginia. We were not disappointed. This is a hotel on a par with the Plaza Hotel in NYC -- dates from 1895. Thoroughly modernized and updated in terms of outlets and room (no chipped paint or faded walls here). There's a nice museum... More

The staff was very friendly, the decor in the lobby and the restaurant was amazing. The room was small as well as the bathroom's shower was outdated. The shower was a little dirty for a 5 diamond hotel. Room was small but it's most likely due to the room rate we chose. The staff were all very friendly and helpful.... More

The Jefferson Hotel is an amazing and elegant hotel in the up and coming, yet steeped in history small city of Richmond. All of the dining situations at The Jefferson are lovely, I especially liked having breakfast in the Lemaire restaurant near the windows where it was as if we were sitting in a cafe on the street. Also, this... More

The lobby and adjoining areas are magnificent. However, if you look closely, there's a lot of faded glory starting to creep in. The service in the dining room is painfully slow. The food is really good but even getting a drink is a 15 minute affair. Our room was cold...even after we turned the heat up but it was so... More

We loved this beautiful historic hotel right in downtown Richmond. They service was excellent and the food in the restaurant was great. Can't wait to return. The lobby has this gorgeous stained glass ceiling. It's incredible.
