And probably the best hotel in Richmond, VA. Centrally located, excellent service, wonderful accommodations and a great overall experience! Definitely make this your first choice in Virginia's capital city.

I enjoyed a mother/daughter stay at The Jefferson recently. The room was very well appointed, especially the bathroom. I loved the Moulton products. A highlight of visiting there was dining in the restaurant Lemaire. The whole experience was wonderful and surprisingly not so expensive for the quality of the food and the surroundings. What a treat!

Charming and old-school this hotel is all things Richmond. We loved our stay during a wedding. The event was flawless and a ton of fun! The hotel rooms could use an update in decor, but this can be ignored by the impeccable service offered by the hotel. We stayed in room 410. It was cozy and bright.

This hotel is very beautiful and has such a history. We were upgraded to a fabulous suite and loved every minute of it. The service is above anything we have ever experienced. The restaurant is top notch also. Felt like a VIP! Thanks to the staff of the Jefferson Hotel.

Room Tip: Corner suite was amazing with all the light and view

I enjoyed a wonderful girls weekend at the Jefferson in March 2013. The hotel is beautiful, the staff is generous and the atmosphere is simply divine! Clean room, comfy bed and spacious bathroom-much needed with 3 women getting ready in the morning! The highlight for me was the coffee, yes, THE COFFEE!!!!! We ordered 3 pots- one after dinner and 2 more for breakfast. We could not stop drinking it! It was the best coffee i have ever had.....PERIOD!!!

You will not be disappointed with the Jefferson Hotel.

This is southern charm at its absolute finest. The Jefferson (which refers to Thomas Jefferson, not his rebellious namesake, Jefferson Davis) is the grand old hotel of Richmond, and it works hard to live up to that reputation. The hotel building itself is truly impressive, beautifully restored and maintained, and with an atrium that is absolutely awe inspiring. Our room was well appointed and spacious, the only disappointment being the absence of any kind of a view.

We put the staff to the test in the first hour after arriving, with a lost piece of important luggage and an emergency laundry item, and they were highly responsive, sympathetic and unflappable. The hotel also provides a transport service to places around town, which is convenient and of course saves money on taxis. This was made even more useful by a knowledgeable concierge who could advise on all the interesting places around town, whether Civil War related or not. And we also made use of the swimming pool, which was long enough to do laps in, an unusual luxury in most hotels.

It's hard to believe that the local government intended to pull down the hotel in the 1980s. What an absolute tragedy that would have been.

The hotel is located on the edge of a very pleasant residential district. We didn’t find anywhere local to eat, but there are many nice places in the town itself which the hotel bus ferried us to and from.

Definitely one of the nicest places we’ve ever stayed – really charming and beautiful. The complimentary coffee available in the lobby from early morning was greatly appreciated by these early risers, too - a really thoughtful touch.

By far, the best service of any hotel I've ever stayed in over the last 30+ years of travel (domestic and international). Room accommodations are terrific as are the historic public areas. There were a couple of mis-steps which were quickly and politely handled. Lemaire restaurant (on site) is excellent and breakfast at TJ's (on site) was, also, very good. Not a budget hotel but well worth a visit!
