Richmond, Virginia

The Jefferson is the only 5 star hotel in Richmond, and it deserves a 6th star if one were available! Growing up in Richmond, I recall the grand staircase and visits to see Santa over the holiday season. But it was only after moving away from a Virginia that trips back to Richmond gave the chance to stay at the...

The hotel is beautiful. Pictures do not do it justice. Did not get to eat in the restaurant, but the bar had a great ambiance and the mixed drink I had was perfect. Room was good size and bed very comfortable. We were able to park our rental car in the hotel's parking lot next door for free - you...

The Jefferson Hotel is Richmond ' s only 5-start hotel. It has class, history, and luxury. You'll never carry your own luggage. They'll walk your dog, park your car, and turn your bed down each night. Their food is outstanding! From the Statue of Thomas Jefferson in the lobby to afternoon tea in the grand hall, this place harkens back...

Nothing new in a review, excellent standards at this hotel. We got the bed and breakfast package which included valet parking ($20 ish) and breakfast which would have been at least $30. Parking across the street yourself I believe is $12. The concierge staff was absolutely fantastic in planning our outings while there. Their transportation to and from downtown saves...

My Husband and I stayed at this hotel while interviewing for Neurology Residency programs. Check in: The hotel concierge was VERY accommodating.

The Jefferson is a beautiful hotel. The lobby and main floor rooms are absolutely striking- the architecture is fabulous. We stayed three nights at the Jefferson. To a person, the staff was wonderful- kind, accommodating and professional. We were to stay in a living room suite but I believe we must have been upgraded as our room was absolutely huge!...

Stayed two nights in the Jefferson Hotel. What a treat! Tour this hotel and you can picture the parties that must have happened here during the Roaring 20s. This historic property just screams “Gatsby!” Be sure to walk through the small alcove under the lobby stairs, which provides an interesting history of the hotel and its owner. The rooms were...

We love to stay at The Jefferson Hotel, especially during the Christmas holidays as the decorations are extraordinary! Afternoon tea is a must, and the food is fabulous at Lemaire and the Sunday brunch is excellent! The Jefferson has such an interesting history...she is a refined and gracious landmark in Richmond.
