We stayed in one of the renovated king bedrooms. Extremely spacious, separate dressing room, and fabulous bathroom. Attentive service, and they comped us us the parking. The public spaces are quite grand, and thus not very personal. A splurge, but worth it.

Staying here is a truly unique experience! When we arrived the valet was standing in the front as well as the bellman. Our car and luggage were taken care of promptly and we walked into the breathtakingly beautiful Palm Court lobby. The original large Tiffany stained glass panels and original beautiful artwork envelop you in history. The Carrara marble statue...

My husband and I stayed at The Jefferson for one night shortly after they'd completed extensive renovations. We encountered several issues, but I still rate the hotel highly and enthusiastically recommend it to other travelers because the staff handled each situation very well. As a bonus, it was December, so the hotel was decorated for the holidays and it was...

I can't say that this hotel is worth the price. I paid around $368 for two nights when my sister was graduating from VCU. My family took up two rooms. The rooms are actually quite small-but the bathrooms are very spacious and have excellent amenities ( a tv in the mirror). That said, I do not recommend this place at...

This was my second stay at The Jefferson and I enjoyed it as much as the first time. This is a very old hotel, but the rooms have been recently renovated so it doesn't feel outdated or stale. I usually stay in hotels that are more modern in terms of style, so I enjoyed the traditional decor of this hotel....

The standard room at The Jefferson was really luxurious, even in comparison to other five star hotels. Very American, Southern style. We had a huge room (probably formerly two rooms) with a separate entrance hall, separate dressing room and a huge bathroom with tub for 2, separate shower and separate toilet. The bathroom was all new and luxuriously decorated. TV...

My husband and I stayed at the Jefferson on April 23rd and again on May 1st. I cannot say enough about the excellence of this hotel. A 4 year renovation was recently completed on this 100+ year hotel. The rooms are spacious and beautifully appointed with spacious marble bathrooms with a large bathtub and separate shower. The towels are oversized...

We had a "staycation" for our anniversary and stayed at the Jefferson. The hotel is beautiful, romantic, and has great ambiance. The room was nicely decorated, spacious, and the perfect place to relax and unwind. I enjoyed walking around the gift shop and the lobby. There is a lot to take in historically so even being a local I loved...
