We stayed at this hotel for 2 nights and really were impressed by the staff and service. While the atmosphere is subdued, the staff and employees are friendly and go out of their way to help you and make you feel at home. I was totally impressed by the security. There is a staff member wherever you go watching out...

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at the hotel, including the luxurious rooms, the wonderful service and, especially, the Jefferson employees who we encountered during our stay — from the two concierges, Cliff and Chris, who were incredibly generous with their time and so easy to work with, to Jorge, our polite and patient waiter each morning over breakfast, to Ahmed...

Very refined and elegant atmosphere, with exceptional decor and polite service. The common areas are all gilt and marble, if that's what you fancy. It's a nice place to have teatime in Washington, D.C. if you are feeling very upscale.

A fabulous boutique hotel experience. Just checked out from my third stay at The Jefferson over the last two years. High standards are a constant here. Breakfast in the greenhouse is a highlight. Atmosphere in bar hits the spot when their regular pianist is playing, and their cocktails are delicious.

My daughter and I stayed at the Jefferson on a weekend trip to find her an apt for her move to DC. As we booked thru AmEx Fine Hotels we received an automatic upgrade to a lovely King room on the 8th fl. Well appointed,not terribly large but enough room to meet our needs. Snacks of nuts, clementines and candied...

So this year we took an early anniversary trip and we started off in our nation's capital. I have to say that The Jefferson is top notch! We stayed in a double queen room which the pics will show. It was so spacious! The bathroom was great, the shower is huge. The beds are so comfy. The service is awesome!...

A very elegant hotel, with excellent service, cosy refined rooms, I especially liked the bed sheets,a lot of 5star hotels are using cheaper sheets. the staff was very helpful, and nothing was too much trouble. I would say this is not a family hotel, but more of a hotel targeting business people or older couples. An easy 10 minutes walk...

We love "Preferred" Hotels and this coupled by it also being "Historic Hotels" was an easy choice. Staff is efficient and friendly. Rooms are beautiful (request a suite) as they are far more spacious and elegant. A lovely touch is the Filtered Water served in beautiful glass bottles, complimentary and replenished regularly. Also enjoyed the turn down service, a little...

While there might be hotels with better views or location, there are none which offer the Jefferson's Michelin star quality dining, trendy bar scene, and well appointed rooms and suites. Be sure to take advantage of the library, which is reserved for guest use only.
