I stayed here earlier this month. I don't typically stay at such high end hotels. I am loyal to the Marriott brand, but this was a special occasion for my daughters 18th birthday and I was dropping her to college. I am so glad we stayed here. It was everything and more and if the price is right I will... More

Luxurious decor! Classically beautiful, and staffed by wonderful, attentive personnel. A quick walk through the public areas will not disappoint, and should be considered a mandatory part of any visit to Richmond. If your are up for a bite to eat, but don't want to have the full restaurant experience, the downstairs bar area has wonderful treats (I can personally... More

Entering the Jefferson Hotel lobby is like stepping back into Southern History. When we arrived, the entrance was full of Southern Belles dressed to the nines in large hats and red shoes. The hotel beautifully balances the history of the area with gorgeously appointed modern rooms. The bathrooms are spacious and luxurious, there are Nespresso makers in each room, and... More

The room is very nice. The bathroom is amazing. The grounds are very nice. Everyone...all the staff...is very nice. It's a fancy place. The restaurant is very good, and also very fancy.

The hotel (over 100 years old) is being meticulously restored. Even though the restoration is ongoing, our room and the registration lobby were completed. The detail was remarkable and craftsmanship was notable. Service was excellent and they include transportation to all venues nearby. I'm looking forward to returning when the restoration is complete.

This historic hotel exudes elegance. Emerging from your car in the circular driveway, you are immediately greeted with Southern hospitality that frames the entire experience. This is a luxury hotel so you can expect superlative service and these expectations are met throughout your stay, Afterall, this is why you are staying there and you pay for it- that said, it...

Wow and wow again. First impression of this hotel was wonderful and it didn't let us down in anyway. Real southern charm and hospitality so pleased we managed to book in here. Everyone went out of their way to make sure we had all we need. Could have stayed forever.

What a shame the Bar Manager could not match the food to the level of the service. We visited to see the lovely staircase, as in Gone with the Wind, but unfortunately, the lobby was covered in scaffolding and the restaurant on top of the stairs was closed. However, as it was our Wedding Anniversary, we decided to eat in... More

We visited the Jefferson despite the website's warning that parts of the hotel were under renovation. I hesitated for a moment and am thrilled that we went. Beautiful hotel, with an accommodating, gracious staff. Everyone was focused on ensuring that every guest was taken care of. This even extended to the restaurant hostess who provided us with a map and... More

We were aware of the renovations which really didn't hinder us (except the pool was closed). What a magnificent building. Here's a tip: go in one end and walk through, up the grand staircase (or down) and out the other door. You can experience it all without paying a dime! The rooms were top quality with absolutely nothing left out.... More
