This hotel is the most stylish, charming, immaculate and beautifully run hotel in Washington, DC. I would recommend to anyone in a heartbeat. Suite 212 is a classic.

Upon arrival and throughout our stay (8 days, 7 nights) we received wonderful service and attention. The staff was top notch and the ambiance was excellent. We will definitely stay there again. The food, service, staff, and location were fantastic. Highly recommend to business travelers and those wanting a great place to stay while on vacation or weekend getaway.

This is a beautiful hotel and from the moment I stepped through the doors I was taken good care of by all the very friendly and helpful staff. My room was lovely, quiet and comfortably elegant. I enjoyed a massage at the tiny spa and had a great lunch at the Greenhouse and drinks at Quill. I would love to stay at this hotel again!

Everything about our stay at The Jefferson was first class! Our room was beautiful and comfortable--we didn't want to leave. Breakfast was delicious, and the atmosphere at the Quill bar was warm and inviting. The hotel is in a great location. We will certainly stay again when we return to Washington.

Beautifully appointed room, but I still can hardly believe that they were able to fit a kingsize bed into that tiny $500 per night space. In fairness, the room size for the price is my sole disappointment. The public spaces were quite lovely and the service highly personal.

The hotel is very attuned to detail. It is refreshing in a world where service seems to take a back seat to expedience. Dinner at the Plume restaurant in the hotel was truely a dining experience. The piano player in the bar was both engagaing and entertaining. We always, in the hotel or in the dining or cocktail experience, felt we were among friends and were treated as though we were the most important people in the moment. It comes at a big city price, as would be expected.

I've stayed at quite a few 4 and 5 star hotels and The Jefferson was one of the best experiences I've ever had. From the time we checked in till the moment we drove away The Jefferson staff made us feel like we were their only guest. I will definitely stay with them again and might even make it an anniversary tradition.

All in all the Jefferson Hotel delivers a superb, high quality hotel experience. I will stay there again on future visits to the Wash, DC for both business and pleasure travel with my family.

This is a gem of a hotel, in an excellent location, with beautiful decor. The staff -- everyone from the doorman, bellman, registration desk -- were exceptionally courteous and professional. I didn't want to leave! The bar was beautifully appointed, with an expert bartender and impressive bar menu. The Jefferson exudes Old World elegance is a suitable venue for the well-traveled, sophisticated visitor to Washington DC. It also happens to be across the street from a venerable old private DC Club -- the University Club, next to the Russian Embassy, which make the Jefferson very convenient for reciprocal members of the University Club.

First I would just like to say that the Jefferson exceeded my expectations with regards to attention to detail and overall satisfaction with our stay. I planned a nice little getaway for my wife and I to celebrate our 9th anniversary. I mentioned this in passing to the front desk when I booked the reservation. And to both our delite they really listened. When we arrived for the actual date they not only upgraded us to a larger suite (free of charge) but had champagne and chocolate covered strawberries waiting for us. To be quite honest we werent expecting much because we didnt make a big deal about the anniversary it was just mentioned during conversation. They also left us some very nice personalized notes from the management team. These little touches really sold us on the Jefferson. The hotel itself is very nice warm and inviting. It has a somewhat historic feel to it, which is what they were going for in honor of Thomas Jefferson of course. It's a nice tribute to Americana. The reading room was inviting and cozy and the room was well situateed. Overall it was a very pleasing stay and one which we would certainly repeat again and again.

Loved this hotel. The staff is exemplary. They cannot do enough, they're always extremely pleasant and accommodating, and the go above and beyond for their guests, and I'm not a VIP. This is their norm. The restaurant is excellent (again, pricey, but worth it if you want to have a special meal).

Stayed at the Jefferson on a part business part leisure break. The hotel is a mile or so north of the White House but on a street that isn't a through road, so the traffic was modest and quiet. The room was modest in size but comfortable and well equipt. All in all a good start and we will certainly be back in future.

Hotel staff were not friendly. We were told on check-in that our room was not ready. I asked if any other rooms were available. I was told no. I asked that my bags be kept. No offer of use of the restroom was made. I had to enquire. I was coming off a long flight. Then i enquired roughly was time the room would be ready. I was rudely told that check-in was at 15h00. I asked whether any rooms in other catagories were available as I would be happy to pay the price difference. It was only then that I was accommodated for an extra 35 dollars. I didn't mind the extra fee, but i minded the fact that i had to prize this information from the clerk, who had to ask her supervisor. This was ridiculous as it felt that the staff had no interest in accommodating us. We were not shown the ammenities of the hotel. Terrible service, the staff seemed very unconcerned with guests. When we got to the room, the toilet was not working. Had to get somebody to sort it out after we called the front desk. I was very disappointed with this hotel. Booked it due to the ratings, but mypersonal experience was far from that.

The Jefferson is a beautiful hotel which is supremely clean and very comfortable. Little touches like cherries from the orchard left in your room make it a welcoming place to be. The staff were very polite and helpful. The hotel has a great location, close to two metro stations on the blue and red lines. It is also within a reasonable walking distance of the White House and Washington Monument. A 20 minute walk will also get you to The Lincoln Memorial. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone visiting DC and will definitely stay here again when I'm in DC next.
