"A Very Happy New Year!"
My husband and I traveled to DC for New Year's Weekend with our college-age son. We left a car with the attentive valet, and check-in was trouble-free.We were all able to comfortably share a large room with two queen beds. The room was spacious and quiet even though it was by the elevator with a view of the main street. We asked for extra pillows which were delivered promptly. The hotel was beautifully decorated. We celebrated New Year's Eve at Plume with a superb multi-course dinner. The setting was festive and the staff was wonderfully attentive and professional. We went to Quill for one late night dinner and the Greenhouse for one breakfast and the food and service were also wonderful. The book room was cozy with a fire burning in the fireplace; there were small sitting areas for morning coffee or afternoon breaks. Games, books and newspapers were provided. The weather cooperated for us to easily walk to local museums, the White House and the National Mall. Sad to check out, the car reappeared promptly. Our first stay at the Jefferson is now a memory. I would definitely return.
My wife couldn't stop talking about the decor in this hotel. We stayed four nights as a side trip from NYC. The hotel was just beautifully and smartly decorated in all areas. The are some historical touches related to Thomas Jefferson including documents and seals as well as paintings and busts. The staff were very efficient and room service was great. The ground level breakfast room looked smart and the food was good. The room was a little small at first ad we upgraded to the next level after one night. The concierge section was useful and we got tips on travel, food and tours from the desk. Overall a really very pleasant stay. Highly recommended.
"Delighted on all fronts"
The hotel is a little more expensive than most but is probably worth it. Nice boutique style. Very upmarket but comfortable. You feel you are in a classy place but your kids are welcome. Few hotels really pull this off Rooms were excellent. Beds comfortable. We felt very much at home here. The whole place just felt right and comfortable somehow. We did not eat at plume as we felt that it was a or ideal for our children but had a nice meal at the quill. Upmarket but friendly. We found ourselves sat in a plush setting with various intense political discussions going on around us but equally a dad and his young daughter on the next table. We were traveling down from Vermont and anticipated doing a stopover. We managed to get to D.C a day earlier than planned and they accommodated us for the extra night. We had to change room but they handled that seamlessly so we just arrived from our travels and went straight to our new room. We had a disaster on our last day. Somehow we lost essential medical supplies which our daughter needs while out. We only noticed on our return to the hotel and the wonderful concierge calmly helped to call round the places we had been and, when we were not successful in finding the lost items, he introduced us to a doctor who prescribed the necessary items late in the evening so I could get her through the night and the flight. No words are enough to thank him. Overall the hotel is highly recommended. Thank you to all concerned for an excellent stay
My husband and I brought our 12 year old son to DC in July (late review). My husband has been to the city a couple of times for work but this was the first time my son or I got to see the Capital. We have been to some amazing places and I have to say DC was at the top. I cannot speak to the outskirts of the city, but where we were was simply PERFECT. The Jefferson is in the perfect spot. We must have made 25 trips to see the White House. A short walk away. There were plenty of things that we needed a taxi for, however the rides were so short, cost was not an issue. We had plenty of fabulous restaurants all within walking distance. Friendly service and delicious food wherever we went. While we spent the majority of the time visiting all the museums and monuments, it was so nice to return to such a beautiful hotel in the evenings. The staff was always visible and willing to be of assistance. The accommodations were impeccable. Every area of this quaint hotel was decorated with such historic richness. You don't visit a city like DC without wanting to feel.....well........'Presidential'. My favorite part was soaking in the tub after a long day of walking and being able to watch TV from the bathroom mirror. Yes, historic richness, except of course in those areas where we all love modern day luxury. The bathroom and the bedroom. Oh such comfortable beds! We did run into a small problem on our 3rd night with a crying baby next door. However, upon letting management know, within 20 minutes the manager on duty, Nicole, had a bell hop at our door and we were upgraded to a new and oh so quiet room. The only reason I even bring up the inconvenience is because of how professional it was handled. And quickly! Crying babies have to travel too and that's why it is so important to be staying at a classy hotel in case problems arise. Very impressed! Many thanks to such an amazing group of people working at such an exceptional hotel.
"Thank you for the wonderful visit "
We just got home from a visit to DC and we stayed at the Jefferson with our 5 month old baby. I cannot say enough how wonderful everyone at the hotel was to us and how accommodating they were for our baby. Starting off our room wasn't ready yet because we arrived early and while we waited we were allowed to hang out in a private meeting room and feed and change the baby. When we got to our room we had a pack and play, a diaper garbage, baby shampoo set and more special for our little guy. Everyone made us feel so welcome and gave our baby tons of smiles and waves during our stay. The hotel also had great wifi which came in super handy at night after the baby went to sleep and we would take the monitor downstairs to the fantastic restaurants and bars in the hotel to get dinner and drinks each night. We especially loved our meal at plume-very delicious and beautiful. Thank you to everyone at the hotel. We will see you again!
