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.

Perfect night in DC

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.
