So happy that I had the opportunity to stay at The Jefferson. I have stayed at many DC hotels, but this one is in another category in terms of providing an all-around perfect experience. Quiet, very comfortable, friendly and elegant....I look forward to a return visit soon.

The Jefferson is a lovely boutique hotel -- beautifully appointed, with comfortable beds and outstanding restaurants. Staying here is like having your own lovely private enclave in the heart of DC -- there is a wonderful sense of privacy and pampering. We loved every minute of our week-long stay. As a historic property, the rooms are not huge but tastefully...

The T.J. was very comfortable, modern and elegant. Impeccable services allowed for a constantly clean room. The concierge was helpful in securing whatever needs arose. I can recommend the Jefferson as a great launching spot to explore inspirational DC.

The location of the hotel(down the street from the White House) , our beautiful room and the extraordinary service make this the top hotel on our list. We have stayed at a lot of beautiful hotels but the service at this hotel takes it all to a new level. We loved this hotel.

Having frequently traveled to Washington many times for work-related visits, I was excited to visit the Jefferson for the first time.

Wow - this place is exceptional. I had the great fortune to stay here for 2 nights and wished it could have been longer. When I got to the room I was greeted by classical music on the Bose sound system and a personalised welcome letter. The decor in the room was elegant and the bathroom had the wow factor....

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.

This is such an elegant, stately hotel. It is great for business. Staff are extremely courteous and professional. Our room was beautiful and charming.
