The hotel service is outstanding. The rooms are delightful. The location is perfect, convenient. It is super quiet. The only thing that was a let down was the breakfast. The breakfast room is lovely, but the service was terrible--slow and rude. I ordered a fruit plate and english muffin--the fruit was dry not to standard for such a place--it screamed...

This is such an elegant, stately hotel. It is great for business. Staff are extremely courteous and professional. Our room was beautiful and charming. There's a TV in the bathroom mirror - definitely something I haven't seen before, but weirdly convenient. The room service is especially delicious - a lot of other 5-stars can't get this service right, but Jefferson...

My husband and I stayed recently at the Jefferson during our first visit to DC. The hotel is superb. Beautifully appointed in every way and the staff are excellent. The complimentary coffee & muffins each morning are a lovely addition as is the sedan service though it's a shame this does not extend to weekends. There were some plumbing issues...

The hotel is utterly comfortable in virtually every way and it provides superb service in a hushed setting that is more like a club. Every detail to foster a sense of welcoming hospitality has been attended to. Such total quality is a rare experience in today's world.

Superb hotel with the mos spetaculad location in Washington. Surrounded by The White House, great restaurants and museums, The Jefferson is the place to be when traveling to DC. A Beaux-Arts landmark (long known as the “White House North” for its parade of notable guests) transformed into an homage to the third American president in the form of a luxury...

The Jefferson has the personal touches of a boutique hotel combined with the professionalism and standards of a larger 5-star hotel. Pros: Excellent, knowledgeable, and personable concierge Adrian. He sized us up and recommended a museum exhibit and restaurant that we enjoyed very much. Delicious hotel breakfast (eggs perfectly poached, toast done just right and warm) served on beautiful Juliska...

The difference between a 4 and 5 star hotel is the service. There was nothing special about the room, but the service and the food was really good. We ate 5 meals in the hotel over two days: 1 room service, 2 bar meals and 2 breakfasts. I highly recommend ricotta pancakes and the french toast.
