It was a wonderful, brilliant experience. Our friends had a wedding at this hotel, and we stayed there for a couple days. I couldn't imagine a better or a more romantic place. The service was outstanding, as well as the food and lodging. Highly recommend

We spent my 50th birthday at The Jefferson. It was like stepping back in time as soon as you walked into the gorgeous lobby! The room was beautiful. The bathroom was out of my dreams! 2 sinks, jacuzzi, TV, walk in shower (for 4. lol), and a water closet with phone. The staff was gracious & efficient. There is a...

We were in town for a wedding and had drinks at the Jefferson Hotel before the reception. This place was absolutely outstanding. The old-world charm, great service, and outstanding cocktails and bar food are more than reason to go back. It's a great place to hang out with a group or grab a drink on your own. Will be back...

The hotel is gorgeous, the food was wonderful (try the Corpse Reviver cocktail), and the staff was friendly. Take time to sit in the lobby and gaze up at the beautiful Tiffany dome. We both wanted to move in permanently!

The Jefferson delivers everything it promises. Majestic venue, wonderful room and food, and outstanding service. We have never seen such a beautiful lobby. They don't build them like this anymore. The location is perfect.

This is a beautiful hotel. The lobby is gorgeous and the rooms are lovely, well appointed and comfortable. The amenities are superb and it is obvious that someone took time to think about what makes a first class hotel room. The commode is private and there are two sinks, so couples don't have to take turns at the vanity. The...

They really know what they are doing at this hotel. Every time I interacted with the staff they were polite, helpful, and welcoming. The lobby is full of marble and fine furniture. The small touches, like having classical music playing everytime you re-enter your room, the little chocolates on the pillows, the thorough cleaning, the robe laid out on the...

Lovely building in centre of Richmond with wonderful décor. Good Southern hospitality and atmosphere. Bar area is a bit small but still retains a good feel. Food was well presented and the service was very good as you would expect from a class hotel.

This is an incredibly beautiful hotel with a very friendly staff. We enjoyed our meals, sampling the gamut from breakfast, lunch, dinner, and room service. The bananas foster french toast at breakfast was so delicious. The cafe was cozy and the service was very good. Our server even gave us a taste of grits, as we were not familiar with...
