Literally perfection. You cross the street from the large, easy to use and reasonably priced parking lot and you're looking at an adorable block with the old school street lights and green overhang. You begin to think you're traveling back in time, maybe Audrey Hepburn will come walking up the street, all in black of course, a croissant and coffee...

...sadly rather spoiled by the poor quality of the staff, particularly in the dining-room, where a senior waitress clearly had her charming but bullied junior colleague - male - in thrall. A comfortable, well-appointed room, with a dismal view - but then Richmond Virginia isn't that beautiful, so perhaps it is churlish to expect more. The car valets were very...

This was a wonderful weekend visit. The facility was clean, welcoming and an architectural marvel. The food was world class, accommodations were comfortable and quiet. The setting in the lower level for the reception was over the top. Valet service quick and professional. If I am ever asked of an overnight stay location in Richmond, this is a hotel I...

A must for any historic hotel fan. Absolutely stunning. Rooms have been nicely updated, and are spacious. In room Nespresso. Good location, easy self park next to hotel if you don't want to valet. Short walk to Capitol, Shocktoe. They do offer to drive you to close in locations, but reserve in advance. We didn't know until we checked in,...

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.
