This is an great property with a fascinating history. The rooms were large and well appointed and as you would expect. I echo the comments of most. I'd not typically feel inclined to review a property of this size with such a fine reputation as it would be redundant.... That said, I wanted to call out the extraordinary service. Upon... More

Our first visit to Richmond it was for a family wedding at the Cathedral. As it was also our 30th anniversary and close to my 65th birthday we decided to 'push the boat out'. Absolutely no regrets. If the welcome and service we received are an example of the legendary southern hospitality then it is thoroughly deserved. Being from the... More

This hotel deserves to be the best rated in Richmond. We stayed two nights this last weekend. Great special involved two free breakfasts, free valet parking, free wifi, no gratuities, and more. The hotel has spacious rooms that are now being updated. The updates hopefully will have work stations and chargers for computers and cells. The bathrooms are fully equipped... More

Had the good sense and good fortune to stay at this fantastic hotel again. From the arrival where one is greeted enthusiastically to checking in with efficiency, this place is magic. Stephanie at the front desk must be new and in training, at least I hope so. She was routine and barely personable BUT she will undoubtedly learn from the... More

The Jefferson public spaces are magnificent, the hotel is very clean and the service was great. We enjoyed breakfast also in the Lemaire room. The room was very nice, comfortable and clean but didn't really feel up to the same standard of the public spaces.

I really loved this place. It felt grandiose. The bar and restaurant very excellent. I loved the choices of wine and happened to be there on Wine Wednesday when the bar served many good bottles for $15 a piece. The bar had an ancient Rome atmosphere , which was kind of interesting. The restaurant was good. Most people in my... More

There are very few places to stay whose welcome is so warm that you feel like you are actually "coming home." Such is the fabled Jefferson in Richmond. The service is nothing short of extraordinary. I would mention, in particular, David at the front desk and Mallory, who drove us on the courtesy van. The rooms are exquisite, even the... More

The service we experienced was top notch. Yes, the rooms vary in size is this truly is a historic property. Our room had a curved wall, good windows and was simply divine. Other reviews are simply unfair to compare this to a hotel built within the last five or 10 years. Housekeeping and maintenance were well above average and certainly... More

It is a grand hotel!! The restaurant inside is good, a bit pricey but it is worth not having to go outside and find some place to eat. The lobby takes you back in time and thinking what it would have been like during the grand balls etc. The staff is very friendly and helpful
