Stayed just one night for business. Upgraded to a deluxe king which had clearly been upgraded since my last stay about a year ago. Room had brand new bedding, pillows, lighting and art. Bathroom upgraded completely as well with in mirror TV, Molton Brown toiletries and a huge tub. Room was huge and perfectly appointed. Hotel was slow since it...

This is an historic hotel in Richmond. I did not have a room here, I only came to visit it with a friend. It is a beautiful historic hotel with a great charm. It is a also an historical landmark. If you come to Richmond, come to visit this beautiful hotel too.

The Jefferson is one of those grande dames of American hotels. The view from either the top or the bottom of its grand staircase is breathtaking. The guest list of its 120 years reads like an American history book -- a couple dozen presidents, stars like Frank Sinatra and Elvis, and the queen of England have lodged here. The staff...

I did not know what to expect and was pleasantly surprised with the facility. A very grand style hotel with a fabulous Sunday brunch that is not to be missed. Rooms were spacious and very clean with all the standard amenities. Staff was very helpful. A great place to come for a splurge!

The hotel was a perfect spot for a stress-free event in that the surroundings were gorgeous and needed no additional decorations, the buffet meet everyone's taste preferences, the music set the atmosphere without being overbearing, and the service was wonderful. The only drawback would be if you wanted to dance as this venue does not lend itself to that. A...

Thank you for your review. We are so pleased that you enjoyed all of the aspects of the reception held in our Presidential Suite and the pianist in the living room. While this intimate space, unfortunately does not provide a space for dancing, our larger ballroom spaces are perfect for dancing and a full band.

With the elegant and majestic building that one beholds as they approach the hotel, one would expect the same elegance and majesty to be graced upon them as they enter the hotel. Well, it was shockingly mundane. Don't get me wrong, it was 5-stars (although I think it was more like a great 4-star, because 5-stars implies that there were...

Well I came to the Jefferson Hotel all the way from Great Falls, Virginia (120 miles) to have their popular English High Tea…. what a disappointment. Reservation were required and the next reservations being accepted were for November (2 months away). Wow! Two months advance reservations just for tea. This must be real good stuff then and I am sure...

Stayed here a weekend for a wedding and it was just as nice as one would expect. The hotel lobby is as beautiful and old world, with the upper lobby also used for afternoon tea as it has a stained-glass atrium. Staff is very welcoming and attentive. If you are not going far, the hotel car seemed always available to...

Our stay at the Jefferson Hotel was wonderful! The beauty and elegance of the Jefferson is remarkable, with a stunning lobby, relaxing pool area and sundeck, and large and well-appointed rooms.
