We spent the weekend at this elegant hotel for a family wedding. It was quite evident why The Jefferson earned its "Luxury" designation. No detail of welcoming or comfort was missed. The architecture is breathtaking. When we arrived at checkout, High Tea was being served. The fine china settings, inviting pastry tower, and exquisite music played skillfully on a harp...

My daughter and I stayed at this hotel in mid-August. We checked in in the afternoon and were greeted warmly, our room ready and waiting. Staff was engaging, welcoming and professional. The lobby is very grand, and the furnishings lovely ~ this is Old Southern Grandeur at it's best. Our room was spacious, very quiet, the beds comfy, lovely crisp...

This is one of my all-time favourite hotels. We've only stayed twice (we live on the other side of the pond), and at the end of long road-trips, but the welcome and service you get at this hotel are just so exceptional that you have to visit again. The staff everywhere in the hotel are outstanding in their attitude to,...

The Jefferson is to Richmond what the Drake is to Chicago and the Mayflower or Willard is in D.C. It is old-school glamor with modern comfort. A great place. These wonderful icons which have lasted and have been kept beautiful are treasures. Eat early and save a bundle.

Thank you for your review and for mentioning our "3 for $30" tasting menu in Lemaire Restaurant. It is a great value and available year round from 5-6pm daily. We hope you will return again soon.

Whenever you are in the Richmond, Virginia area this is the finest hotel. Vintage hotels are like the Plaza in NYC or the Savoy in London. They have an enduring style and comfortable accommodations. Everything in The Jefferson says comfort and class. Be sure to enjoy the full breakfast in the restaurant. Just perfect Southern hospitality.

Stopped here for a respite from a Florida to New Jersey drive. Check in at two in the morning was friendly and welcoming after the convenient self-parking. Stayed in one of the newly renovated small suites with traditional furnishings but a bathroom with all of the modern conveniences and more including a television /mirror. Climate control was excellent, beds comfortable...

I gauge all 5 star hotels against the Four Seasons, so here goes: I stayed here for a wedding weekend. The hotel is quite impressive, and architecturally beautiful. Upon arrival, you can valet your car, or for $12 a day, park in the hotel lot across the street. The hotel is a no smoking hotel, so smokers beware. You will...

From The moment you enter the hotel to when you leave your treated great. Had the Governors Sweet. Great room. My wife and her friend had High tea in the afternoon, they thought it was as good as in London at the Browns Hotel. It is located close to everything, but you will need a car to get around.

We stopped here in our way to Myrtle Beach. I can see how the hotel is a 5 star hotel but I feel the room could have been a bit more modern. Lovely French doors to a shared balcony was great. But if you looked up, there were remnants of bee hives on the balcony ceiling. Also, there was a...
