The Jefferson is an elegant hotel in a superb location just a few blocks from the White House, Dupont Circle and Logan Square. Boutique in size but grand in sophistication. The staff was warm and welcoming from arrival through departure. The room was beautifully appointed in furnishings and amenities. We look forward to returning on our next visit to DC!

Lovely Luxurious Hotel

Posted 05-Jan-2017
Pros: We loved how welcoming, accommodating and friendly the staff were during our entire stay. It helped to make our stay comfortable and memorable.
Location: The hotel was convenient for walking to the White House, Washington Memorial, and Smithsonian. There were several good restaurants nearby, as well.
We stayed at The Jefferson for two nights over the holidays with our two teenaged children. We could not have been more pleased with our choice of accommodations. Prior to our visit, our favorite hotels were Le Chateau Frontenac in Quebec City and the Waldorf Astoria in NYC. For our family, the Jefferson in Washington, D.C., was superior to any other luxury hotel we have visited. All of the interactions we had with staff at the hotel were amiable and personal. We felt welcomed and cared for during the entire stay. Our flight arrived earlier than check-in. Our room was still occupied, but the hotel staff immediately tagged and stored our luggage for us. We chose to eat breakfast at the hotel in The Greenhouse. Our son ordered Lobster Eggs Benedict and said that it was the best meal of the entire trip. All of the food was delicious. Afterwards we left to go do some sightseeing. The hotel took our phone number and notified us immediately when our room was available. We were pleasantly surprised to find that they had already taken our luggage to our room for us when we returned. Our room was spacious, impeccably clean, and well-appointed. The beds and chairs were quite comfortable. The bathroom was luxurious. We loved the walk-in shower with oversized, massaging shower head. We loved the turn-down service, especially the bottled water on the bedside table and the chocolates. Coffee and muffins were available in the lovely library in the mornings.

Small boutique hotel with outstanding staff

Great hotel. Great staff. Their first priority seems to be ensuring that customers were well-cared for. The bar got a little busy and seemed a bit understaffed, but the drinks were high quality and worth the wait. Will definitely return.

While at this luxury hotel we had an unruly friend visit us. He became very, very, drunk and difficult before 5:00 p.m. This was embarrassing to us and infringing on our otherwise good time. The Jefferson is by all accounts a five star hotel with amazing staff and accommodations. How they assisted us with this "problem" showed the refinement of a discrete lovely hotel. They were gracious to us, yet firm in assisting us with the problem. I am so very grateful and will consider The Jefferson my home away from home anytime I am in the DC area. Absent the difficult person, of course. Thank you. They went above and beyond, when they certainly did not have to by any means. Side note, and I wish this would have been my main comment, the massages and mini-spa are well worth it. Excellent service to relax before you head to your next meeting or museum.

Gediegener Luxus "aus guten alten Zeiten"

Posted 02-Oct-2016 on Hotels
So ist ein echtes Luxushotel - klein und fein!!! Herzlicher persönlicher Service - Gäste und Mitarbeiter kennen sich, ganz anders als in den anonymen Bettenburgen!!! In allen Bereichen extrem gepflegt und stilvoll ausgestattet, kein Glamor, Glitter. Zentral zu allen wichtigen Stellen in DC gelegen, teilweise fußläufig. Leider keine Hotel-Fahrräder verfügbar - wie in sehr guten Hotels der Nachbarschaft

Great location

Posted 30-Sep-2016 on Orbitz
I arrived at 1:15, before the 3 o'clock check in and it was suggested that I enjoy lunch as my room was not going to be ready till after.2. I checked back at 2:15.....should be ready before 3. At 2:45 I was told it was going to be after 3. Finally at 3:10 I was told it was ready. Went up stairs to a beautiful 'closet'. I assumed that it was taking so long was because it bigger than a closet....but I have walk in closets that are bigger at home! I gave high marks to the hotel overall as most of the staff was pleasant and professional, facilities were excellent and room cleanliness was outstanding. After making me wait longer than expected and giving me unrealistic expectations for it's availability one would assume at least the room would have nice in size....it wasn't!
