This historic hotel offers very good value for money. The rooms are excellent, very comfortable with modern bathrooms. The Internet connection works also well. The hotel is close to The White House and other famous tourist attractions. I can highly recommend this hotel.

I always try to book at the Jefferson when I have business in Washington. Staff is top-notch and more than accommodating, the rooms are charming and comfortable, and you can't beat the location right across from Lafayette Park and the White House!

Beautifully maintained hotel, superior staff who could not do enough, excellent location - a real find! The room was well appointed, with a television in the bathroom mirror, bottles of distilled water, and delicious shortbread cookies.

The Jefferson Hotel is a rare find for people who love good food, excellent service, Comfortable beds, lovely rooms and suites and ideally located for walking to many Washingtons sights. Another main attraction for many guests is Peter Robinson Who plays the piano almost nightly in the bar. Don't miss him. The hotel is truly 5 stars
