Happen to catch a glimpse of this magnificent hotel on TV and was intrigue to find out more. Once I saw the history, it was a must stop on our travels down south. From the moment we arrived to the second we left we were treated like royalty from every member of the friendly and courteous staff. The room was...

Why is it so expensive to stay here? The rooms are like shoe boxes, unless you shell out an absurd amount of money to get a bigger room. The layout of the floors is confusing. Front desk staff, overall extremely rude. Concierge staff was hit or miss. Dealt with a doorman who could not hardly give me any information, and...

The Jefferson Hotel is a classic. Located in the heart of Richmond it provides a modern walk into an era past. The interior lobby and rotunda areas are what you see first upon entering the hotel and they are magnificent examples of architecture no one can afford to build today. They are breathtaking and beautifully maintained. These alone are worth...

If you are in the Richmond area over the weekend you MUST go here for brunch! Historic marble interior, white linens and Southern Gentleman in bow ties. Champagne brunch with all you would expect and more. Southern specialties like spoon bread, grits, pecan pie, in a gorgeous setting ice sculpture included. Reservations a must, ask for a table on the...

This is overall an excellent hotel with facilities and service that are exceptional. Kudos to the concierge staff ( Gibson, Jeanita, and Jesse and Ross) for excellent service and their kind hospitality. This is the best concierge staff I have ever encountered in some 35 years of travelling. Our room was above average ( and the price was right and...

Truly a "Gone With The Wind" venue. We come often just to treat ourselves and relax. Easter and Mother's Day buffets shouldn't be missed! Love the rooms, Nice pool, spa, several places to eat. Despite that, the staff can be spotty.. Most are friendly and try to make your stay even nicer, but a few are inattentive and act like...

We stayed at The Jefferson 21 years ago on our wedding night and have made it a yearly tradition since 2008. It is beautiful and so very friendly. We have never had bad experience.

my husband and i stayed here on our way to visiting my parents in NC. All I can say is that I wish we had way more time to fully enjoy this hotel. We checked in late (at 10pm) and walked through the gorgeous entrance and lobby. I loved the statue of Thomas Jefferson and the couches that surrounded it....

The hotel's public spaces are, to say the least, SPECTACULAR . When I saw the lobby the great hotels of Atlantic City built in the early 1900s came to mind. The Roosevelt in NOLA , Omni Penn Plaza in Pittsburgh or the Fairmont in Quebec are similar but not as grand as the Jefferson. However the rooms are terrible. We...
