“Absolutely perfect”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 21, 2013

As an avid traveller I expect certain standards when staying at a hotel. This hotel"gets it"! From the moment that my husband and I arrived for a long weekend trip everything at The Jefferson was outstanding.
The attention to details of the room, the phenomenal service throughout the hotel, the delicious meals, and the location of the property will entice us to make another stay at The Jefferson.
I love staying at 5 star hotels. The Jefferson experience was a 10-star experience!
Thank you for making my trip to DC memorable.
By the way, the high tea service was delicious. Absolutely loved it!

This is by far the best hotel I've been to in North America.

The service is amazing, rooms are divine, restaurants are excellent but its the whole decor of the hotel which sets it apart. I booked it through Expedia and it wasnt outrageously expensive.

A truly outstanding hotel.

I stay in 25 hotels a year, all over the world. The Jefferson's staff offers the best service I've ever encountered, anywhere. I loved the room, the bar and the restaurants as well, but the staff set this experience apart, for me. It established the standard against which I will judge all other hotels from now on.

This is one of the best hotels I've stayed in - definitely a favorite in DC. The service is wonderful, the food is delicious, the bar is swanky, and the rooms are great. This was my first time staying here (technically on business, but I splurged) and it came highly recommended.

I'd been here once before for a Christmas tea several years ago and remember enjoying it but for the full experience you need to stay overnight.

I'd recommend going to the bar. There is live music some nights (maybe every night?) and the cocktails are fantastic.

Beautiful hotel within walking distance of the White House, beautiful lobby, wonderful fine dining restaurant, very handsome bar. The room was small but very nicely furnished and the bathroom was nicely done in marble. Despite being on the second floor corner of a busy intersection the room was relatively quiet and the windows are well sound insulated. Concierge Lynn and Chris were very helpful with any questions. A delightful stay.

While my wife and I "just" came for drinks at Quill and dinner at Plume, the details in this ultra-luxe yet decidedly "DC" jewel always amaze. The location is ideal (hello Mr. President) and the service, outstanding. An amazing property.
