This is a terrific property just four blocks down from the White House, so in walking distance to most of the key sights. It is a first class venue with impeccable service. We will definitely be back at the Jefferson the next time our travels take us to DC!

While the location is maybe not for everyone, we loved this hotel. The doormen, reception staff, concierge, restaurant and bar staff were all very welcoming and professional. The complimentary coffee and muffins in the lobby every morning were a lovely touch. The hotel is almost equidistant from Dupont Circle and the White House. There are 2 metro stations in walking...

Just had five pampered nights here and loved it. Will come back again with the family . Elegant, well appointed rooms that were also very clean . Staff was very accommodating and friendly . The kids loved the library. It is the place to stay in Washington.

If I could provide a higher rating, I certainly would. We traveled to DC with our teenage daughters and had the pleasure of staying at The Jefferson hotel. Upon arrival, I learned my reservations were incorrect. Despite the error being completely my fault, Joshua took on the problem as his own and found us a beautiful room to accommodate our...

The Jefferson is certainly one of the great hotels in DC. As a tourist in the capital the location is great (can you get closer to the White House?). What was particularly memorable though was the service and the staff. All were super friendly and helpful, from the concierge to the doorman who help us with taxis come rain or...

The hotel has a great atmosphere but the rooms are very small. The front desk was very helpful to meet all of my needs. The proximity to all things Washington was definitely worth the price. I would highly recommend this hotel!

Sophisticated understatement, elegant and yet current, Red White and Blue, Continental and yet very American delight. Highly personalized service balanced with discretion and insight. I really felt at home on a recent nearly two week stay. Love the bar, wine list, food and every aspect of service. Standard rooms are of not huge but very comfortable and well equiped.
