The hotel had a great reception, the staff made my wife and I feel welcome. They have original documents written by Thomas Jefferson himself on the walls. The elevator is retro and takes you back in time. The room was cosy but the bathroom was spacious. The hotel was clean and we did not encounter any problems. The hotel is...

The Jefferson has high quality service, attention to detail and guest comfort as their priorities and they succeed mightily. Stayed there for our anniversary and were treated like we were royalty. The restaurant/bar provide excellent quality food and great wine lists, especially the Madeira by the glass.

Very clean, very quiet. Cliff, one of the concierges, was friendly and very helpful. All of the staff were helpful and attentive. The room we had was a bit on the small side. Breakfast at the hotel is expensive for what you get. Go to the Founding Farmers instead. Will definitely stay in this hotel again, though.

So happy that I had the opportunity to stay at The Jefferson. I have stayed at many DC hotels, but this one is in another category in terms of providing an all-around perfect experience. Quiet, very comfortable, friendly and elegant....I look forward to a return visit soon.

The Jefferson is a lovely boutique hotel -- beautifully appointed, with comfortable beds and outstanding restaurants. Staying here is like having your own lovely private enclave in the heart of DC -- there is a wonderful sense of privacy and pampering. We loved every minute of our week-long stay. As a historic property, the rooms are not huge but tastefully...

The T.J. was very comfortable, modern and elegant. Impeccable services allowed for a constantly clean room. The concierge was helpful in securing whatever needs arose. I can recommend the Jefferson as a great launching spot to explore inspirational DC.

The location of the hotel(down the street from the White House) , our beautiful room and the extraordinary service make this the top hotel on our list. We have stayed at a lot of beautiful hotels but the service at this hotel takes it all to a new level. We loved this hotel.

Wow - this place is exceptional. I had the great fortune to stay here for 2 nights and wished it could have been longer. When I got to the room I was greeted by classical music on the Bose sound system and a personalised welcome letter. The decor in the room was elegant and the bathroom had the wow factor....
