The Jefferson it is a truly grand hotel. The public spaces are beyond wonderful, and the rooms are well appointed, commodious and very comfortable. The Lemaire restaurant is good but could be better. The hotel and restaurant staff are very helpful always finishing a conversation with something like enjoy your stay with us. We did a months long trip where...

I've never been to Richmond prior to this visit, but now I'm looking for any reason to get back, mostly because of The Jefferson. The rooms were huge, the accommodations within the rooms were second to none and the service was top notch. I loved how the hotel itself maintained its historic integrity, while making updates to the rooms, which...

This is a great hotel for a little self indulgence. It was luxury accommodations and service for mid-range pricing. The room was very spacious and well appointed -- with a separate dressing room and very large, beautiful bathroom. The service was impeccable -- every staff member was pleasant and helpful. The small touches (turn down service; a couple of bottles...

What a gem. The historic, large 19th century hotel has been refurbished without losing its original charm. The central and lodging floor lobbies are handsome and our Room 333 was spacious, attractive and very comfortable. The bed was firm without being hard, the temperature we set stayed consistent, and the bathroom had a roomy shower and separate tub. There were...

Grand, old hotel in downtown Richmond with a colorful history, including alligators in the fountain at the entrance. Recently renovated throughout. Rooms very nicely appointed. Elegant ballroom and lobby with rotunda. Nice restaurant. People very warm and welcoming.

We stayed here on December 30 for one night. The Hotel was beautifully decorated for the holidays and we had a lovely one bedroom suite (more on this later). We were lucky enough to be able to have dinner in the hotel restaurant as a result of a cancellation. The restaurant is good, but its only "very good" or "excellent"...

We went a little bit out of our way to stay at this hotel, attracted to its history and recent room renovation. In short it was worth the extra journey. The two standouts of the hotel are the lobby and guest rooms. The lobby is from an era all but lost in most of the country. Grand, impressive, elegant and...
