Staying at the Jefferson is an experience of indulgence on all levels. The accommodations are beautiful, the staff is polite and attentive, and the dining rooms simply wonderful. Service is king here, from the parking valets to the front desk folks to the bellmen and everything in between. The concierge arranged for timely car service to and from restaurants and... More

The handcrafted Christmas decorations and the Christmas Brunch at The Jefferson Hotel are not to be missed. The hotel's rotunda celing medallion is breathtaking. If you don't see any other landmark, or hotel, in Richmond please make it a point to visit The Jefferson. The gift shop and garden shop are also special "must see" agenda items! Enjoy!

My husband surprised with an overnight at this wonderful place. It's a beautiful hotel with the MOST attentive staff I've ever experienced anywhere. The concierge was my "go to" spot. The gentleman behind the desk on Thanksgiving morning gave me HIS muffin because I was starving and the restaurant wasn't open. The hotel lobby complimentary coffee service was served on... More

We booked for the afternoon eta which is available daily in December and i am glad we did. We were seated at a comfortable sofa and chairs in the lobby area as soon as we arrived. We were given water and a copy of the menu and the waitress explained all the types of tea they serve. We went for... More

We had the wonderful fortune to stay at this gorgeous, historical hotel this weekend. We were upgraded to a recently renovated suite -which was out of this world. HUGE room with an awesome walk-in shower and soaking tub. The level of service was wonderful - very personalized and everyone we interacted with that worked at the hotel was beyond friendly... More

Southern charm, old world splendour, historical feel, majestic venue..................all terms that you will see scattered throughout the reviews of the Jefferson and accurately describing what is indeed a charming, old world, majestic historical gem in the heart of Richmond. If you wish, you can mentally transport yourself back to an age where Ms O'Hara frankly didn't give a damn. My... More

A wonderful family from Virginia recently took me to the Jefferson in Richmond to share the renowned champagne brunch, and I can only say that it was one of the most incredible experiences of my travels in the USA. The food was an exquisite gastronomical high, from oysters thru to grits and bacon, generously served (the champagne glasses were never... More

Gary Burke, the incredible General Manager of this magnificently appointed property could not have been more engaging or welcoming! We have traveled to many many places and decided on Virginia to celebrate our 25th Silver Wedding Anniversary when a friend invited us to a special dinner he was hosting. The rooms at The Jefferson hotel are magnificent. The size, decor,... More

This was far from the most expensive hotel that we have stayed in. However, I can recall only a very few stays that were as outstanding as was our day at this hotel. The hotel itself is an amazingly beautiful grand dame property. It is very old property. However, unlike other vintage properties, it has been immaculately restored. The lobby... More
