A very elegant hotel, with excellent service, cosy refined rooms, I especially liked the bed sheets,a lot of 5star hotels are using cheaper sheets. the staff was very helpful, and nothing was too much trouble. I would say this is not a family hotel, but more of a hotel targeting business people or older couples. An easy 10 minutes walk...

We love "Preferred" Hotels and this coupled by it also being "Historic Hotels" was an easy choice. Staff is efficient and friendly. Rooms are beautiful (request a suite) as they are far more spacious and elegant. A lovely touch is the Filtered Water served in beautiful glass bottles, complimentary and replenished regularly. Also enjoyed the turn down service, a little...

While there might be hotels with better views or location, there are none which offer the Jefferson's Michelin star quality dining, trendy bar scene, and well appointed rooms and suites. Be sure to take advantage of the library, which is reserved for guest use only.

We spent 3 glorious nights at The Jefferson. From the moment you arrive, you feel well taken care of and feel right at home. The venue is spectacular and each and every person we encountered at the hotel was over the top helpful! We were there with an 11 year old and our 6 month old baby and never felt...

The Jefferson is a first class, service - focused hotel that you will enjoy and appreciate although it may not fit everyone's budget. The Quill restaurant is casual but not too casual, and comes complete with live piano music in the later evening. There is also a more formal restaurant if you have the 2 or 3 hours to spend...

Absolutely fantastic service from the entire hotel staff. The hotel itself is beautiful, but what truly makes the Jefferson worthy of its high rating is their service. I was celebrating an engagement and the entire staff could not have been more helpful throughout the entire weekend. They ensured I had the type of room I wanted, had some champagne waiting...

This boutique hotel is highly personalized with the bottles of FREE water, a throw blanket to watch TV in the suite's living area or reading the morning paper. The epsom salts located near the large soaking tub were appreciated after a long day's walk. The glass door on the commode offers privacy -- unexpected. And the linens are satiny smooth,...

Stayed 2 nights recently at the Jefferson Hotel in DC. Just a wonderful hotel and great staff and service. I stayed in a smaller room, queen bed only, but room was quiet and bathroom was spa-like.
