When you walk in to the Jefferson you are immediately impressed by the beauty, history and size. The rooms were outstanding, the spa and staff were great and location was excellent. My wife and I, when we go to Richmond will only stay there.

We recently stayed at this grand dame a week or so ago, and we have stayed here is the past. The reception staf was friendly and helpful and our room was quite nice. However our experiences with the restaurant's really colored our opinion of our stay. We ate ate Le Mare that night. My fish was great but my wife's... More

Stayed here for 3 nights this week and was extremely impressed at how "buttoned down" this property is. I stayed in a beautiful KS room on the 6th floor. Recent hotel renovations are immaculate and everything about the room, the hallways and the public areas were terrific. Everything appears to be maintained at the highest level. All of the staff...

A fair number of hotels claim five-star service and amenities but very few deliver such. The Jefferson lives up to it's claim. My wife and I stayed here over the weekend at the recommendation of a friend and it did not disappoint. The staff members were excellent- starting with the valet, bell service, desk attendant, concierge, cleaning- and on and... More

This is our second visit to celebrate our anniversary. We had a newly renovated room. It was so classic and charming. The beds are so comfortable and the decor is spectacular. Hubby went a little crazy when he saw the tv within the bathroom mirror. Coolest thing ever! Room service was prompt and very friendly. Our breakfast was hot and... More

So, we gave them another try. This time we had a wonderful stay! If you're looking for a fantastic hotel with history,... More

Just returned from a stay at this venerable hotel. The renovations almost complete afforded an updated room and bathroom. Beautiful!!!!
