I was traveling with my daughter on college visits and stayed at the Jefferson as a treat. The check in was great, location is perfect and bell staff excellent. Our first room was small but lovely. There were a few issues with the room (heating was very loud and red light on phone was on all the time) so we moved to different room on our second night. I did not like the second room they showed me (bigger but on a lower floor that looked out at the atrium) so they showed me another BEAUTIFUL room on the 6th floor. We stayed in that room for two nights and could not have been happier. Felicia at the front desk was very patient with my requests and personally showed me the new rooms. Additionally, the concierge gave us excellent restaurant suggestions. Coffee and complimentary muffins in the morning were much appreciated as was tea in the afternoon. Overal we had a fabulous visit and would HIGHLY recommend The Jefferson as it is a true gem.
We stayed at the Jefferson in mid-January with our daughter and her husband. It was our third visit and have no hesitation in saying it is one of the world's best hotels. The staff are terrific and the decor/furnishings are first rate. The concierge had no trouble in getting us tickets to the hockey (great seats) just an hour before the start of the game. It's great to see than my favorite breakfast (eggs benedict with Maine lobster) still on the menu! Looking forward to our next visit to Washington DC.
I recently stayed at The Jefferson for business and was blown away by how beautiful the hotel is. I stayed in a standard room that was more then "standard" The room was beautiful and the bed was one of the best I have ever slept in. The staff was amazing as are the mini muffins they bake each morning and are waiting for you in the lobby! I ate at Quill and Plume and the food at both restaurants was fantastic! I can definitely see why Plume has 5 stars. The hotel should have 5 as well in my opinion! The hotel is also dog friendly and only 2-3 blocks from the White House. Would definitely recommend The Jefferson when looking to stay in DC!
"Corner top floor suite with a view of Washington's monument "
Out of our window. Service was awesome! The bar was very cool and we loved the history of this hotel (letters written by Jefferson, etc). The concierge did everything they could to accommodate us and the location could not have been better for our meetings at the foreign embassy. The staff went over as beyond to accommodate us
"Beautiful Hotel. Dog friendliest hotel ever!"
I stayed at the Jefferson for three nights with my black Lab. When we arrived, they'd already put a dog bed in the room along with bowls and were extremely welcoming -- the concierge gave him treats every time we walked by. Unlike other hotels, which charge a daily fee, The Jefferson had a single one-time (and reasonable) cleaning fee. They also put us away from a main hall, so that our dog wouldn't be disturbed by people walking by (and vice visa!). Unfortunately, we didn't get to meet Monti, the house dog. The hotel itself is beautiful and in an excellent location. The rooms are well appointed with all the normal five-star amenities, except for an in-room coffee maker, which was mitigated by the complementary morning coffee bar near the lobby. There are interesting historical documents on display on every wall for history buffs. The physical plant is in immaculate condition. The staff is extremely helpful and the service is excellent in a friendly and unobtrusive. While we were there, a visiting dignitary was also there with an equally unobtrusive security detail, which didn't interfere with the comings and goings of us mere mortals. We were greeted warmly by the front desk staff and the doormen each time we passed by, and they thoughtfully gave us bottled water and a cold towel after returning from a run. The basement exercise room is smallish, but well-equipped with treadmills/ellipticals and freeweights/cable machine. There is also access to the University Club's pool across the street. The food was excellent and room service was prompt. The Quill Bar was crowded at 6pm on Friday evening, but hotel guests have exclusive access the the Book Room, a private library right next door, which was cozy and intimate. This is definitely the most dog friendly hotel I've ever visited, and would definitely stay again -- even if my canine friend can't make it.
