I am deeply disappointed by my stay at the Jefferson Hotel. While we were there, my traveling companion and I were continually harassed by the staff and repeatedly asked if we had reservations and were actually staying at the hotel, even after telling them our room number. The bathrooms had issues with water pressure (the sink in our room barely had more than a drip even after adjusting the faucets) and for such a beautiful hotel, I would have expected halfway decent service and less discriminatory treatment by the staff, who were very rude to us and failed to listen to our requests (ignoring them on multiple occasions). Our only positive interactions were with the staff at Lemaire and Maria at the front desk. This hotel was highly recommended to me and I am upset that it failed to live up to expectations.

Hotel's Favorite
We recently had the privilege of staying one night at the Jefferson (including dinner at Lemaire). Every aspect of the experience was positive. Our room was enormous, incredibly quiet, and both luxurious and comfortable. It was like having our own apartment in a gracious, pre-war building. The public areas of the hotel are lovely and impressive. The service throughout the hotel was warm, friendly, and professional. The hotel's efforts to make the experience safe and comfortable during Covid were very impressive!! We highly recommend the Jefferson and look forward to a return visit.

Struggling to kick off a post-Covid shut-down college tour and decided to stay in Richmond for a few days while we explore the area. After some online research and struggling to find the best rates with the dates we needed, I decided to call The Jefferson to get some assistance for our trip. I was pleasantly greeted by Michael who did ALL the work for us and got us some great rates and terrific rooms. I couldn't be happier with the service he provided and it's helping me look forward to our trip. I hope he gets the recognition he deserves for his excellent customer service skills. Thank you, again.

My summary: 1) Elegant, very well-maintained property--a great combination of historic landmark and updated modernity. Spotlessly clean and inside and out with tight adherence to COVID precautions (masks, omnipresent hand sanitizing stations, toiletries wrapped in plastic, etc). 2) The room was large and clean, with a spectacular marble bathroom and some of the softest robes I've worn at a hotel. Not much of a view, but no big deal. 3) All of the staff (from the Bellmen to Registration, Concierge to the Bar/Restaurant) were warm, friendly, welcoming and highly skilled. They all really seemed to take pride in their work. 4) Great value for what you get. It's not cheap by any means, but you get a lot for what you pay for, 5) If I'm back in Richmond, I'll be staying here.

Stayed one night mid week on our travels. Magnificent hotel with everything you could ever need. The food, bar and accommodations are first rate. It literally felt like an oasis during a long trip. But as is always the case in the success of a business the key is the people who make everything so wonderful. The Jefferson has a very friendly and helpful staff from Marco who helped us when we arrived late at night to Jayden who served us breakfast and everyone in between. You will be well cared for.
