Very rarely does one hotel have 2 out of 3 things going for them: best hotel overall, best restaurant, and best bar/lounge. The Jefferson has all 3. The hotel has a perfect downtown DC location, pretty much 5 min drive from any major area or land mark. Their facility and most importantly, their staff, are top notch. I was greeted... More

The Jefferson is a truly exceptional hotel. Everything was perfect; from arrival to departure. The hotel is beautiful and has a genuine warmth. The staff are excellent - every single person. A special mention to Cliff the concierge for his tips on where to go in the neighbourhood. We would not consider staying elsewhere if back in DC. Brilliant. Thoroughly... More

For our stay in DC for about 10 days we decided the Jefferson DC. There are so many things to say. The room was not so big and with few wardrobes / drawers but very very clean.

My wife and I stayed at The Jefferson for a couples weekend to visit the Mall and experience D.C. From the moment you enter the Jefferson you know this is a special place that is not your typical hotel. Highly personalized service that is helpful and accommodating.

I lived in Washington for three years so my parents visited multiple times. During their visits, they stayed at the Ritz Carlton, the Four Seasons and the Jefferson. Our favorite by far was the Jefferson. This is literally a perfect hotel. Impeccable service, great location, beautiful rooms.

Everything is great at this hotel. The best is the consistently personal and professional service. It has a fantastic location, good restaurant and bar, and the rooms are great. The hotel has a small terracce, a perfect spot for drinks or snacks. We loved it and will be back!

We decided to go to The Quill for one last drink on my daughter's 21st birthday. Great choice. It was late but our bartender Peter couldn't have been more accommodating and nice. We both got the Babylon and my other daughter got the BBC. All excellent! Aside from a rather obnoxious lobbyist next to us, our time there was perfect.... More
