My husband and I recently returned from a 10 night stay in the US travelling from the UK. This was a special trip booked by myself as a gift for my husbands 40th birthday. We have 2 small children who were left at home with family so I wanted to push the boat out. We started our trip in New... More

This is a very conveniently located hotel, three or so blocks from the white house. We walked everywhere. We stayed two nights in a Premier room. Last time I visited I was in a room one level better and did find that to be a prettier and more spacious room. The premier, while comfortable was smaller and dark furniture. The... More

I recently stayed at The Jefferson with my family while attending a family event. It is one of the best hotels from top to bottom anywhere in the world. The service, the cleanliness, the food, the bar--everything--is first class. You must visit The Reading Room on Saturday. I spent an hour with a resident scholar from Georgetown, discussing Thomas Jefferson.... More

Visiting from the UK and had researched many options before booking the Jefferson. Lovely boutique hotel so had a personal and friendly feel. All staff polite. Deluxe room nice and spacious, with good sized powerful shower and as per the photos. Unusually for a hotel we turned on the TV so could see a bit of Murray winning the Wimbledon... More

Holy cow. Those of you who've read my reviews are probably a bit surprised to see me reviewing a hotel of this caliber. I freely admit that I don't usually travel like this. I like quality and all, but I'm also about finding value to go hand-in-hand with that quality. However, I was traveling for work, and my managers stay... More

We stayed at the hotel for 3 nights. The location of the hotel is perfect for exploring DC. Check in, check out, concierge services and other services within the hotel were all very good and of the usual high standard of a 5 star hotel. Will definitely return to the hotel and would recommend to others.

Very well kept grand historic hotel, but what made my stay was the professionalism and friendliness of the staff. Came off a long flight and had a minor hiccup while checking-in late in the evening but the class shown by the manager, Marcus Lee, to rectify the situation was definitely something I appreciate about 5-star hotels, and this one, in...

We arrived early and the hotel was very accommodating. Even though check in is at 3:00, we were checked in by 1:00. Our room is small even though it is considered one of the larger rooms in the premier king category. Despite its size, the ceilings were high. Although this hotel is in an old building, it looks well maintained.... More
