Overview

Distinguished, sophisticated and discreet, this 95-room luxury boutique hotel exemplifies all that its namesake, Thomas Jefferson, held dear - intricately thought-out design; twenty-three elegantly appointed suites; the most modern amenities, including a petite spa; experiential dining in the award-winning Plume and Quill; and, of course, exceptional personalized service. Since its re-opening from a top-to-bottom historic restoration, the hotel has been regularly heralded by leading travel authorities and experts including Travel + Leisure, Conde Nast Traveler, Robb Report and many more. Visitors to The Jefferson enjoy a sophisticated European ambiance with the residential intimacy of a private home, as well as amenities that are strikingly modern in their technologies and comfort. Guests also enjoy numerous on-site amenities, including complimentary Wi-Fi, a Monticello-inspired book room, and a fully-equipped fitness center. The hotel has an ideal location, just four blocks from the White House and within a short walk of the Smithsonian museums, national monuments and the city's many embassies. Dining options include Plume, the city's only Forbes five star-rated restaurant, and Quill, a craft cocktail destination. The hotel features versatile meeting and private events space, including a private board room, bar and wine cellar. The elegant ambiance of The Jefferson's hotel rooms and suites evokes the hotel namesake's cherished years in Paris as well as his time at Monticello. Extraordinary attention to detail conveys the sense that one is staying in a private residence. Here, you might find a book on Monticello on your side table, or perhaps a vintage copy of Goode's Best Addresses. The Petite Spa features express and full treatments inspired by the herbs and botanicals grown on Thomas Jefferson's farms. Evoking a stay at a grand private residence, each guest is personally greeted upon arrival and invited to settle into comfortable chairs facing residential-style desks for check-in. Service that is intuitive, flawless and customized to each guest creates a welcome haven from the bustling world outside, offering a guest experience without parallel at any other Washington, DC hotel.

Dining

Plume- Fine Dining Restaurant
One of the finest restaurants in the capital, Plume serves as a discreet and elegant backdrop to the culinary artistry of our Executive Chef as well as an acclaimed wine program.
Quill- Bar and Lounge
Enjoy an expertly-poured drink and fine conversation at Quill, our elegant lounge and cocktail bar, where house-made mixers and herbal-infused alcohols have enlightened the cocktail culture of Washington, D.C. The inspired "mix" of classic concoctions and signature drinks, an acclaimed wine list and a unique collection of specialty spirits provide a true taste of everything Quill has to offer. Steeped in Jeffersonian tradition, Quill's parquet flooring recreates the pattern Jefferson designed for Monticello's main salon. A collection of 18th-century maps on the walls follows Jefferson's journey through the wine regions of France, Germany and Italy. In warmer weather, relax on Quill's outdoor terrace where smoking is permitted.
Greenhouse- Breakfast, Lunch and Afternoon Tea
With a longstanding reputation as the go-to place for Washington, D.C., power dining, the sophisticated ambiance of the Greenhouse creates a perfect backdrop for business meals. The historic setting is also a favorite for gathering among family and friends. The original 1923 skylight creates an informal mood and airy setting for meals that perfectly complement the light, fresh and energizing fare on our menus.

We visited several states in the Northeast, including DC, as part of our first family vacation. Friendly staff, a beautiful lobby, and well-dressed rooms made our stay at The Jefferson and our DC visit unforgettable.

Luxury Boutique Hotel With Amazing Service

Would recommend Tue, May 26, 2015
We just returned from a two-night stay in a Deluxe King with bathtub at The Jefferson in May 2015. The hotel services and ammenities exceeded my husband's and my expectations and raised our standards for all of our future hotel stays. Our two sons (ages 5 and 3) were immediately sold on The Jefferson upon check-in when the receptionist rolled out the red Radio Flyer wagon of stuffed animals for them to choose a gift. The Jefferson offers a complimentary coffee bar in the morning and (very delicious) iced tea during the day. The complimentary wi-fi signal was a stable 10-15 mbs (download) which easily supported our 4+ devices for internet surfing and video streamining with no lag or interruption. The hotel also provides free sparkling and still water in custom frosted glass bottles. If you stay at The Jefferson, be sure to spend time in the Book Room/Library, which has a collection of books published during Jefferson's lifetime. My favorite section, however, are the newer books inscribed by the authors who have been guests of the hotel. The books may be borrowed by hotel guests during their stay, and I will admit that it is quite a thrill to read books that have passed through the hands of the authors themselves. Location-wise, the hotel is in a quiet area of DC that is near restaurants, shopping and major city sights. Our family felt very safe walking around the area, and in spite of being so close to downtown, we heard absolutely no street noise in our room. Speaking of the room, we were in room 201 (Deluxe King with bath tub) which has a king-sized bed and a large bathroom with a shower and a soaking tub which was so large that my kids thought it was a pool. (Room Tip: Not all of the rooms have bathtubs. If you need/want a tub, call the hotel to request one. Requests can't be guaranteed, but it may help.) Last, but not least, every staff member we met at the hotel was gracious, efficient and friendly. Check-in was swift, but it felt very personal and relaxed. You truly felt like each person's goal was to make you feel special and remembered.

Perfect night in DC

Would recommend Mon, Jan 5, 2015
We booked this hotel last minute and were very pleased with our decision. Check-in was pleasant and the room was perfect! Simply elegant with a beautiful bathroom and heavenly bed. The highlight was the Piano bar downstairs in the delicious food and spicy margaritas.

Room was very beautiful and comfortable. Bed was very comfy. Very nice clean bathroom. Only issue we had was the AC in the room didn't cool the room enough for us. We like it very cool. Other than that perfect.

Great hotel, beautifully renovated, excellent staff

Would recommend Mon, Jun 23, 2014
Terrific hotel in a great location. The well-trained staff were a joy to interact with. The restaurant was excellent. My room was...quirky. It was recently renovated and well-appointed, but the bathroom was oddly huge and the bedroom was so small that when I opened the luggage stand (I'm not going to bother to unpack for one night), I could not sit in the chair! Did someone reverse the blueprints or what? That was the one annoyance in an otherwise perfect stay.

Great Boutique Hotel - Small Rooms but great staff!

Would recommend Tue, Apr 29, 2014
Generally I loved the hotel -- clean, comfy, and very nice and professional staff. Just what you'd expect from a 5 star hotel. The room I was in was very small though -- I couldn't really move around much and the bed seemed too big for the room. Also, if you are a gummy bear fan, the gummies in the in-room bar are very sub-par, so bring your own :) I would definitely stay here again though!

Lovely, lovely hotel! Great cuisine & service!

Would recommend Sun, Apr 27, 2014
Although we couldn't check into our room because we were too early, when we arrived back at the hotel, our luggage was safely waiting in our room for us! The room was just lovely, and the bed was the best bed I've ever slept in...ever!!! Complimentary bottled water is provided in beautiful glass bottles in the room, free Internet, and chocolates in the evening. Many newspapers are offered for delivery to the room in the morning and hung in a bag on the door. The magazines found in room were extraordinary. The toiletries were very nice, as well as the slippers and bathrobes that were provided. We enjoyed drinks and snacks in the Quill bar, and dinner in the main restaurant provided an excitingly different menu that was truly a series of taste delights! The service throughout the hotel was top notch. Only two small issues: one was the safe in the closet, which is open until you use the safe. When I bent down to put something on the floor in the closet and stood up, I cracked my head on the safe door. Ouch. Also, the TV located in the bathroom mirror didn't seem to work. Regardless, the hotel folks who helped us load our car and waved goodbye was also a nice parting touch!
