I stayed at the Jefferson on the recommendation of a friend who lives in DC. It was simply perfect! The architecture, interiors, and food make this an excellent location for business or personal travel. The beds are heavenly! I was there on business, so a good night's sleep was necessary. I found the room to be luxurious and quiet. The... More

I've stayed at this hotel twice now with my husband who came to D.C. for business. It is a great location, an 8-10 minute walk to 15th and P Street where you'll find an array of great restaurants, some shops and a Whole Foods Market. It's also a short walk to the White House.

I stayed very briefly - for only one night, so my impressions of the hotel are somewhat limited. The font desk personnel: - graciously extended my check out time to 3 pm - was always smiling when I was passing by, yet discreet enough not to bother me - door people are very professional and warm at the same time....

The Jefferson is in a great location, just a short walk to the White House and just a couple of blocks from the metro. The hotel is fabulous, with excellent comfort (particularly the bed, I have never slept so well!) and fantastic room amenities. The staff are so friendly and helpful. I will definitely be recommending this hotel.

Stayed two nights at the Jefferson on a business trip. Very stylish, very comfortable, very unpretentious. People incredibly friendly and helpful, and clearly very proud of their hotel (justifiably). Rooms have that historic, Jeffersonian feel in a very welcoming way. For business travelers, great choice.
