Sink into luxury at an affordable price. The Jefferson has it all: glamour, style, history, elegance, attention to guest's needs, it's all there for you. The bar is swarmy; they really yucked it up with television braying it's ugly light over your head. But since that's the hotel's only drawback, just don't go to the bar. Meanwhile the restaurant is...

The hotel itself is beautiful. The room was also gorgeous. However, the customer service was abysmal and that translated into an overall very poor experience. I planned a bachelorette party for my dear friend and chose the Jefferson as our hotel. Upon arrival at 4:30 ( check in is at 4) , the room was not ready, which meant that...

The hotel was very nice overall, but a few things need to be worked on. The rooms are beautiful and the bathroom was simply stunning. The great room downstairs is jaw dropping. We ate at LeMaire and the food/service was fantastic. However, when we arrived and parked, no one offered to help us with our bags. We thought that was...

My husband and I came for a weekend away. The hotel is located very conveniently off the highway in downtown Richmond -- a nice walking area and close to VCU and other historic sites. We booked a King Premiere room which was large and luxurious. The bathroom was awesome, it also had a sitting area, dressing room, and the bedroom...

It is always nice for us to revisit The Jefferson. We have stayed there many times and are always most pleased. On this visit we were given a great room , even our dog liked it.The entire staff is friendly and helpful. The bar is friendly and worth a visit as is the restaurant.

Really enjoyed our stay at this historic and luxury hotel. Great rooms - amenities - and location. Entire staff was friendly and helpful - really made us welcome for our first visit to Richmond. Property drips with history dating back to 1895 - truly part of,the historic comeback for Downtown Richmond. Highly recommended!

Jefferson Hotel and staff could not have been more welcoming to my family and our (well-behaved and quiet) dog. Room was beautiful (recently renovated). Love this hotel! Looking forward to returning to Richmond to stay here again!

We met some friends here for an early Christmas dinner and it could not have been more delightful! The decorations are very festive and the hotel is beautiful. Food was also fantastic. Highly recommend.

It has been several years since our last visit to The Jefferson Hotel. What an amazing makeover has been made to this classic hotel. We stayed for three nights and would have enjoyed staying longer. The Lemaire Bar is lively and friendly and the food is fantastic. TJ's is a beautiful place to have breakfast. My only wish is that...

We stayed at The Jefferson for two nights, April 7 & 8 , 2017. Our first impression as we walked in was that the lobby area was sumptuous and grand. The front desk clerk, Chris, was welcoming and friendly. He gave us suggestions, The bellman, Chastain showed us every detail of the room. Our actual room, 637, was elegant and...
