I've stayed here several times now on the recommendation of a local customer and haven't been disappointed. The gracious staff and eye popping opulent public areas are especially memorable. The rooms are very nicely appointed and still include pointed toilet paper and nightly turn-down service with a chocolate. The beds are very comfortable and the linens feel and smell good....

It was great to see this beautiful hotel. We arrived in a terrible storm. The bellhop was so accommodating-our minivan and family of 5 was a mess from a long road trip. I suspect we are not the average Jefferson guest. The morning we left they had transformed the lower lobby for a convention reception. Many businessmen around. The hotel...

Just minutes from the highway you're warmly greeted by valet service at the entrance of this grand hotel. Spectacular Tiffany glass ceilings create a memorable impression. Harpist and high tea at check in, but disappointingly, we didn't know it would be so popular that you need to reserve this in advance. Our room was very spacious and did have a...

Its been almost 30 years since I have felt so poorly treated at a hotel. When I walked in a room people turned to look at me as if I had something on my head. When I got up to leave guest stated "he's finally gone". I guess If I forgot that I was African American. However I was quickly...

We stopped in just to see the interior, and it was gorgeous. Walk around and see as much of the property as you can. All of it is so beautiful. Grand is a great way to describe it. It is well worth a stop for teatime or brunch. Look for the alligators inside and out. Travelationship.com

There are hotels that fall back on there name, like the Saint Regis in DC and the service is OK. Not the Jefferson from the time you pull up in front of the hotel to the minute that you leave everything is great. Last night we came back from the opera late and did not have dinner yet, we went...
