Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed April 24, 2013

What a lovely, gracious and beautiful hotel. It is an elegant oasis in downtown Richmond, VA. The architecture, history, and interior decor - with oil paintings of all the presidents who stayed here beginning with Thomas Jefferson - are fascinating. The guest rooms are beautiful and comfortable and the service is excellent. The restaurant Lemaire was outstanding. Seriously 5 stars.

Room Tip: We reserved a deluxe room and were upgraded to a superior king room. Our daughter had a connecting r...

The Jefferson Hotel is a Richmond landmark and deservedly so. Our two-night stay was splendid with an ample, suite-sized room that had a view out on to the city. We experienced most of the hotel's rooms and salons because we were there at a wedding that used a good part of the hotel. Staff was particularly pleasant and engaging, from servers to maids to concierge help. As tourists to Richmond, we particularly enjoyed a free hotel shuttle service that got you to the city's attractions--and back again--for free (we ended up parking our car for two days rather than use it in unfamiliar traffic). To note also: the hotel is quite central and you can walk to a number of city-center sights.

This hotel is absolutely gorgeous. We came here for a wedding. The staff is friendly and helpful. It was also just a short walk to the 10k marathon that took place this past weekend. You need a car to get around mostly. This was our first time to Richmond, VA and this hotel was a great stay. The people in the area were also incredibly nice. Loved it-- thank you!

Room Tip: We stayed in a king, which was more than enough. I think it helps to remember that this is an old ho...

We stayed here one night about four years ago. We liked it so much we came back for a two night stay. Even if you don't stay here stop to look at the amazing common spaces; the upper and lower lobbies. The staff is pleasant and helpful. Our room was of good size. There was a nice flat screen TV. The bathrooms were nice with great water pressure and lots of hot water. I love this place and hope to find a reason to return

I was in Richmond recently for a conference and this was our conference hotel -- it was a perfect choice. The building itself is amazing, the architecture and the restoration work on the details. Interestingly, they serve tea at 3 pm and there were women who were dressed for it. The bedroom I was in was spacious and the bed comfortable. I like the chocolates and the next day's weather forecast that the person turning down the bed does every evening. It's a great location, within walking distance to some good restaurants and definitely great service.

Love this hotel. Lobby and mezzanine are gorgeous! The double room we had was comfortable with 2 cozy chairs for enjoying a glass of wine before dinner. Nice large screen TV. Beds are wonderful with delicious duvets. Towels are lush. Very lovely, comfortable place to stay in Richmond. I messed up my reservations and booked for the wrong day but desk clerk was kind enough to find us a room and not charge any extra though we had not shown up the week prior.

The Jefferson is among the finest hotels in the country. Even in the otherwise sleepy town of Richmond, VA, they continue to provide world class comfort and service. The rooms are excellently appointed, the fitness and pool facilities are extensive, and the restaurant and bar area are very trendy. The staff are world-renowned for the level of service they provide. Be sure to take advantage of the complementary car service.

Room Tip: Try to get a room with an exterior view.
