The Jefferson, Washington, DC, Washington
One of the better hotels in DC.
We stayed at the Jefferson for our anniversary. We thoroughly enjoyed our night there. Very well appointed rooms. Quill is a great bar for a drink - bartenders are knowledgeable and the drinks menu is seasonal.

Very Good8.0
I like the feel of the place. Very handsomely decorated with friendly helpful staff. The docent in the library provides a unique and added touch for history minded travllers. Rooms are very clean, crisp, and comfortable. This time, unlike another, there was a good deal of noise on the street and in the hallway beginning at 8 AM.
