Recently stayed two nights at The Jefferson during our trip to Richmond. Beautiful hotel and conveniently located. Our double room was huge and the decor was fabulous! Felt very much like a suite, especially with a large dressing/closet area and a gorgeous bathroom. Service was also fantastic.

Hotel's Favorite
My wife and I travel a good deal and recognize when a hotel recognizes its stature and works hard to maintain it. This grand dame of Richmond is truly elegant and a wonderful stay. From the friendly staff to the spacious rooms, you will be transported to another time while being in an up-to-date hotel. Everything is well kept and clean, with a lot of pride from the staff. We loved the dining here too and would definitely return.

We had a veterinary practice owners meeting at this hotel in the spring. I was awed by the spacious room and the orchid in my room entryway. The service was excellent and so understated that it was easy to overlook but it is far better service than at other hotels with similar ratings. This is a grand old hotel with a rich history, much of it documented in a small museum on the ground floor. Marble pillars soar up to ceilings with ornate paintings. An entire balcony hosts portraits of many of our past presidents. Thanks to The Jefferson 20 veterinarians departed feeling very pampered. Only wish I had been here years ago when alligators were kept in the lobby pools and sometimes lounged on the couches. That would have been exciting!!!!

Thank you for your wonderful review! We are so glad that you and your colleagues departed feeling pampered and enjoyed your rooms, along with our service. We too wish that we could take a trip back in time to see the alligators that roamed the Palm Court lobby. What a sight that must have been!

We visited the hotel this past weekend for a wedding. Beautiful hotel, gorgeous rooms, and an excellent location for a wedding reception. We enjoyed a rehearsal dinner the night before and a Sunday brunch the day after. The Jefferson is known for it's brunch, though I think we got an abbreviated version as we were not in the main brunch area. Not a cheap hotel, but a great experience.

We had an enjoyable visit to a elegant and stately hotel in the Virginia Capital. We stayed in a large, well appointed room with king size bed and a large bathroom with a separate bathtub and shower. It even had a TV screen built into a large mirror above twin sinks. The Jefferson is centrally located near the Richmond Fine Arts Museum And the Civil War Museum. A hotel car dropped us off at the museums and later picked us up. Lots of beautiful historic churches and houses in Richmond.
