5 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

We enjoyed our night in the new beautiful room. It was spacious and the 2 queen beds was nice but the bathroom was esp. luxurious. There was still some renovation activity in the lobby, restaurant and pool but that did not affect our visit. The staff was great and we took advantage of the complimentary shuttle around town.

This is our 4th stay at the Jefferson and, as usual, they delivered first class customer service, from the minute we arrived and were greeted by Spencer to the minute we left and were taken care of by Aki. Ben graciously upgraded us to a luxurious renovated suite at no extra charge and Alex did a wonderful job with all... More

First Class hotel friendly and helpful staff. The hotel is undergoing renovation and fortunately we were in a newly renovated room which was fantastic. The lighting in the lobby needs improvement and hopefully is on the list of upgrades what is currently underway.

The Jefferson is so dramatic and overwhelming that it will be something you will long remember. It is so special that the staff welcome visitors who come to have lunch and enjoy the ambivalence. Everything is over the top. It is pricey but worth the experience.

Loved this hotel because of the elegance and traditional southern feel with the Thomas Jefferson statue in the lobby. The rooms were gorgeous and completely state of the art. Our flight landed late in the evening and the Bar was still willing to stay open and serve us dinner and drinks. Service was outstanding; and, the staff so friendly, professional... More

We spent one evening at the Jefferson while doing college tours with our son. The hotel is wrapping up a major renovation. Our room was huge and completely modern with a lovely nod to the history of the property...super comfy beds, plush towels and robes, marble baths, well lit vanity and a big closet. The staff were lovely. Worth the... More

From the outstanding service, to the jaw-dropping lobby, to the classically elegant rooms, to the fantastic food and drink options, the Jefferson is top notch. In a smallish city such as Richmond, one does not expect to find this level of excellence in a hotel. There are other notable places close by (Linden Row Inn, Quirk) but Mr Jefferson's establishment... More

We expected a first-class experience when we checked in to the Jefferson, as we had already scoped it out on a previous visit to Richmond when we were blown away by the lobby atrium and spectacular glass dome, and we were not disappointed. Our recently renovated room - actually a suite - had all the amenities and conveniences one could... More

When done will rate a 5. If you desire to stay in a very very nice older updated hotel you will enjoy this one. I recommend waiting until restoration is done. The main foyer and pool were not accessible. We did not know this about pool until we arrived. They provide valet car parking service for additional cost. Two restaurants... More

The sister of Tennessee's only 5-Star/5-Diamond hotel the Hermitage is unsurpassed anywhere in America or Canada as a truly gorgeous hotel. Its lobby and main room down the staircase that inspired that in the fictional Tara in Gone With The Wind is arguably the most beautiful there is. It offers beautiful rooms and an attentive staff.
