From check-in to check-out we could not have been more pampered. Used the 'Summer Special' and had a wonderful time. Ate in both restaurants, used the transportation services several times, and when we did need to drive received precise directions. Loved it! Thanks to all the great staff!

Staying here was not in our budget. However, we toured the overwhelming lobby and bars. We had happy hour drinks for $5. What a fab experience! A must for downtown Richmond! Located in the middle of downtown Richmond. Had vans outside to take you within a couple mile radius. Highly recommend for a luxury hotel!

I love this hotel. Beautiful and historic. The staff is friendly and helpful. After spending the day in a meeting room I asked about touring the area on foot, and the wonderful concierge directed me on a walk on 'monument row'. He told me that when I got to the Arthur Ashe monument to give them a call and they'd... More

We had a perfect stay at this beautifully maintained historic hotel with a friendly staff and comfortable vibe. Our newly renovated corner room was immaculate and the bathroom was huge. 3 large, clean windows allowed views of Richmond, the VCU campus and beyond. We look forward to our next visit to the Jefferson; we must include a meal at Lemaire!

Absolutely fabulous hotel. Wonderful service, excellent food and a great room! Plus my dog Zoe loved it. I truly cannot use enough superlatives for this property. I stayed one night on my way to New York and another night on my way back, and the young man at the front desk, Chris Beck, remembered me! A class act all the... More

This hotel is absolutely beautiful. The service stands up to their 5 star rating. From valet to wait staff to concierge, everyone we encountered was very professional. The lovely woman who assisted at check-in upgraded us to the most stunning newly decorated room/suite. Beautiful linens, comfortable pillows and mattress and one of the most spectacular bathrooms I have ever seen.... More

This is another classic hotel that really stands out amongst the historic hotels of the United States. The rooms are very large, the staff is friendly and helpful, and the restaurant in the hotel is elegant. The lobby of this hotel is very large, and beautiful. I only stayed one night here, but I truly enjoyed my experience, and would... More

The sister hotel of the magnificent Hermitage in Nashville is as luxurious if not more so. Descend the grand staircase supposedly the inspiration for that in Tara from "Gone With The Wind" to what we believe may be the most beautiful public hotel room in America, That lobby is dominated by a huge marble statue of the hotel's namesake, The...

Amazing property, very beautiful! Excellent five star property, over 100 years old, beautifully maintained and service to match! We loved it! The room was huge and so comfortable, sitting areas, very clean, beautifully furnished. Loved our bellman who was so gracious and helpful, wonderful check in clerk. The lobby areas were both gorgeous! Not to be missed for its place... More
