The Jefferson hotel DC is the nicest hotel I have yet to visit in the USA to date. I have traveled on vacation to Europe and to many cities in the US. It's beautiful, classy and the service impeccable. It is a destination itself. Treat yourself: hurry!

I promise you, if you stay here, you won't be disappointed! Not only was the hotel perfect, but the concierge went above and behind to ensure our stay was memorable!

The Jefferson has all the class of historic Washington. You feel the elegance and the class. The prices reflect that class and it's well worth it! I love the ambiance. You will feel the southern charm in everything from the greetings of staff to the politeness and charm.

Thanks so much for a lovely stay. The gracious staff and sumptuous hotel lives up to its high reputation. Just gorgeous. We will come back again hopefully soon. We didn't dine in but the place was jumping Saturday night and the Sunday Mothers Day Brunch looked fabulous and there were many enjoying it when we were checking out.

I really enjoy staying here. The rooms and very comfortable as is the bed! The amenities are all there, with the occasional surprise. The restaurant and cocktail bar are fab, lovely atmosphere but more importantly lovely food! My base in DC never disappoints.

My family (wife and 3 daughters - youngest 6) had a wonderful stay at this beautiful, historic hotel in Washington D.C. The hotel definitely has a boutique feel, but it is still a great place to stay for families. While expensive, you get what you pay for and the service is top notch, and the rooms and food are excellent....

This is an all around exceptional hotel. Gorgeous lobby and rooms with luxurious bathrooms. Maybe the best shower I've ever been in. Very convenient location in D.C. Service is impeccable. Definitely has a boutique feel, personable with an attention to detail that I've found some of the larger chains lack. Don't hesitate to stay here!

This place will blow you away. We've stayed at The Jeff frequently, and it always manages to surprise with how much better it keeps getting. The restaurant is unbelievable, rooms comfortable, homely and impeccably clean, the staff warm and friendly, and The Quill is one of the great bars.
