The Jefferson has been undergoing a 4 yr. renovation and it is impeccable! We stayed in a renovated grand premier king room which had been renovated. Lots of room, very well appointed and plenty of storage space for anyone staying longer. All the personnel were well trained and attentive to our needs. This is truly a 5 star hotel! See...

My lady friend and I headed to the Jefferson Hotel for dinner prior to a concert in Richmond. What wonderful Southern ambiance and plush decor! When you think of old world elegance and charm, this is the place. The restaurant is elegant, wonderful service, excellent food and just a warm and rich experience all around. Get away from the cookie...

I decided to splurge and surprised my wife with an overnight date to the Jefferson Hotel and it was unbelievable. I have stayed at some nice places over the years but I have never seen such a beautiful hotel any where. It was immaculate and words can not describe this grand property. Upon walking into the lobby, I stopped dead...

The architectural details of this hotel are amazing and well worth a visit. We stayed in December and the holiday decorations accentuated the light, color, and space of the lobby. We enjoyed a nice afternoon tea during our stay. The rooms are outrageous in their space and detail. They even have a heated pool!

Myself, Diane, and Rudy the dog were determined to make it on our first night of our 4 day trip south. We were pleased to make it after 10+ hours on the road. The hotel is beautiful. We were happy that they still had their famous Christmas Decorations adorning the lobby. Wonderfully accommodating staff, great restaurant and bar. The heated...

We stayed overnight on our way north. We chose The Jefferson from positive on-line reviews. They did not do justice to this beautiful hotel. From the moment we arrived, through check-in and up to our room, the staff were welcoming and filled us in on all the hotel offered. Our room was large and very comfortable. The marble bathroom with...

Stayed at The Jefferson overnight in December. Beautiful experience all around. Grand old hotel that they have not neglected. The room was newly renovated, high end finishes and feature abound. The staff was friendly and helpful. Highly recommended.

I can be skeptical of older hotels. They rest on their laurels, the architecture may not lend itself to modern conveniences, or they are just run down. Not so with The Jefferson. Everything was perfect. The structure is well maintained. Everything including the valet, bell hop, check in, housekeeping, restaurant staff was great. I have posted a video of our...

Awesome rare jewel of a hotel. Grand old hotel with recently renovated rooms. We managed to see the lobby still decorated for Christmas. Spectacular property maintained to an early 20th century hotel opulence. Walking around the historic two lobbies was like visiting a museum. Guest rooms are large with a huge bathroom and shower. The vanity mirror has a tv...
