We returned again to our favorite hotel in the US for a quick overnight stay to visit our daughter. From the moment we set foot outside of our cab door upon arriving, until the cab door closed upon departure, we were treated like royalty. From door men, to front desk staff, from the concierge's familiar greeting, to attentive staff in...

The Jefferson is in a great location, just a short walk to the White House and just a couple of blocks from the metro. The hotel is fabulous, with excellent comfort (particularly the bed, I have never slept so well!) and fantastic room amenities. The staff are so friendly and helpful. I will definitely be recommending this hotel.

Stayed two nights at the Jefferson on a business trip. Very stylish, very comfortable, very unpretentious. People incredibly friendly and helpful, and clearly very proud of their hotel (justifiably). Rooms have that historic, Jeffersonian feel in a very welcoming way. For business travelers, great choice.

This hotel's location is great, the price is not bad. We stayed there for one night since there are not much to see in DC. Staff are friendly and helpful, room itself is not bad but nothing stand out either. Clean. The fire alarm in my room went off while I was having a shower, good job on the sensitivity...

We stayed at The Jefferson for three nights with our two young sons, ages 8 and 5. In a luxury hotel, sometimes it's hard to know what to expect in terms of child friendliness... well, The Jefferson is unparalleled!! Upon our arrival, a staff member wheeled over a red wagon filled with stuffed toys (!!) and allowed our boys to...

Comfortable and awesome customer service. Walking distance to the museums and memorials. Bar has a great selection of food, martinis, and wine. Breakfast was delicious and we had dinner one night, which was a delicious experience. I had the lobster. Definitely recommend it!

We recently booked two rooms for a three-night pre-Christmas get-a-way in DC. This grand hotel, in mid-town DC is in a perfect location for getting around the city. The staff is very friendly and accomodating (although at the Ritz and Four Seasons they do generally learn your name). The doormen were especially helpful. Check-in was easy. The rooms are quite...

Rooms couldn't get better (even when you get one of the basic tiny ones), the stylish classic atmosphere couldn't get better. If you enjoy relaxing in your tab, with a reading shelf and a screen here is the place to finish your day. And it always feels so new and fresh. Although I wish I could stay in Georgetown, for...

The rooms are very elegant. Everything is first class, extraordinarily comfortable with no details overlooked. The hotel is charming without being ostentatious. The location is perfect and within walking distance to many top DC attractions. The staff was excellent and very friendly. We would definitely stay here again on future visits.
