Enter The Jefferson and all your memories of how hotels once were, are instantly restored. The grandeur of the place, the welcoming staff and the infite spacious feeling it gives you are almost overwhelming. This is the kind of hotel where, before you take the elevator, you walk around first. You must, because there are levels to the stunning architecture that will want your attention. Once you get to any floor, the maze of extremely long hallways may remind you of the movie The Shining. And for those afraid of the dark, the trip to their room is definitely a trip. The standard rooms are generous in space with high ceilings. Everything in this hotel is in good shape but has a classic feel to it. With other words, it hasn't been spoiled by cheap renovations. It simply says quality everywhere. The fitness area is simple but remarkably spacious and there are plenty of weight machines, treadmills, bikes and free weights. There's a spa but I didn't use it and don't know if it's any good. Location wise, The Jefferson sits comfortably inside urban Richmond and I recommend taking a taxi if you don't know the area. Richmond can be very confusing to many who even return and what's more GPS systems actually put you on the wrong road easily here. I hope The Jefferson will never fall into the hands of the wrong hotel chain. That it will stand here to represent Richmond proudly forever.
