The hotel was farther from the white house than we thought , though still a short walk . We expected a connecting room to our suite , upon arrival they do not connect rather a hallway door is closed and your main door is kept open allowing 2 other rooms to have access to the main suite . We rented...

we decided to get a suite at the Jefferson. I strongly suggest doing this at least once or twice in your life,you'll feel like a millionaire .from the turn down service, to the transport to town,everyone knows your name, and is super friendly.the suite was more like an apartment ,about 1.000 sq. feet.gorgeous.

My husband and I traveled to DC for New Year's Weekend with our college-age son. We left a car with the attentive valet, and check-in was trouble-free.We were all able to comfortably share a large room with two queen beds. The room was spacious and quiet even though it was by the elevator with a view of the main street....

The hotel is a little more expensive than most but is probably worth it. Nice boutique style. Very upmarket but comfortable. You feel you are in a classy place but your kids are welcome.

Great great hotel. Its centrally located, close enough to walk to all the monuments. We walked from here to the White House to the Lincoln Memorial and Washington Monument. Rooms are great although no coffee, but you can go down in the morning to get the complimentary coffee and muffins.
