The Jefferson is a unique experience. It is one of the hotels which can truly claim the special quality of "boutique". It has the loveliest staff who are attentive and warm without being invasive. The food is excellent, the restaurant beautiful, and being there is happiness with kindness. It is classically beautiful and I always look forward to returning.

Hotel's Favourite
For five years before covid, we stayed at this top-notch boutique hotel as tourists visiting DC, in all seasons. Then, we moved here and as residents got to enjoy it all regularly. It has always offered an outstanding level of service, class, and hospitality. As it has just re-opened, it is so wonderful to see it hasn’t lost its touch. It’s as beautiful and welcoming as ever. We’ve had breakfast in The Greenhouse and dinner in the main dining room this week. The food is still amazing. As noted in another review, everyone on staff is helpful and friendly. This is a unique and special place. Beautiful spaces; a gracious and professional staff; very comfortable, upscale hotel rooms; excellent food; and, a superb bar and wait staff. High class all around. The Jefferson is popular with both tourists and locals. The efforts of all who work there create an atmosphere a cut above and you love being part of it. They have a loyal following of professionals in the city and residents who know how great it is. For tourists, it’s well-situated for lots of activities around the city; and, the staff knows how to make your stay memorable. After a year+ of covid shutdowns, and outstanding businesses having to close, it’s so gratifying to see The Jefferson open for business again. Highly recommend it.

We changed reservation from Hay Adams to Jefferson after seeing the high reviews. And I was super looking forward to our stay. However, the actual experience did not live up to my expectation and the reviews. The room was tiny, bathroom sink and shower was clogged and water drained super slowly. The room itself as well as the breakfast dining place sensed to have bugs and mosquitos and we got bitten multiple times within the night and the next morning we were there. Overall I would say it is a fine and upscale hotel but I was underwhelmed based on my own experience.

We have been to Washington, DC, a number of times and always told ourselves, "Someday we'll stay at the Jefferson." Well, for a special birthday occasion, we finally did, and it was worth it! It was luxurious and historic, and the staff all made you feel special by giving you their total attention.
