The Jefferson Hotel

4.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

We were in Richmond to visit my son in Fort Lee's Naval base. Hotel was great with it's stuff and amenities. The ambience of this hotel was delightful. We all had great experience on Sunday brunch in hotel. Thanks to Jeanita,the consierge,who made this happened.

we had major problems with air-conditioning and hot water when we arrived and these were sorted out by about 1900. The staff were excellent and the hotel compensated us handsomely for our trouble. A good recovery from a bad situation; these things happen. It's how you deal with them that counts. And the Jefferson did excellently.

The best Hotel. Clean, good staff. Well you can see for yoursef when you'll be there.

Beautiful hotel with many period features. Food was great at TJ's and in the lounge. The service was terrific all around.

This was a beautiful, historic hotel with excellent staff. I highly recommend it.

We only stayed one night, but every second was top notch. All of the staff went above and beyond in all of their interactions with us. Polite, helpful, professional in every way. The hotel was gorgeous and emasculate. We were also impressed with the pool and gym. Best gym I have ever seen in a hotel. I truly felt like the price, although high compared to hotels I usually stay in, was well worth it for this special occasion stay.

The hotel is absolutely beautiful, great staff, very clean rooms and an excellent location.

We were awestruck when we entered the lobby. Registration was flawless. An upgrade to a Studio Suite was quite a surprise. Very relaxing indoor salt water pool. Quiet Comfortable Elegant room. Pleasant, courteous staff and exquisite dining. Not use to spending so much for a room. but this will be a lasting memory.

The jefferson was absolutely gorgeous.Valet was on point,the gentlemen who checked me in were so gracious. The decor was so unique and historical.I live in florida and when i heard about the gator story,felt like i was back home.The replica was so real and perfect.Definatley would return.

Amazing staff at this historical landmark in Richmond. Free shuttle service to local attractions.

This is a great hotel. Next time I am in Richmond, I will definitely stay there.

Dining room was good, but not great - staff was wonderful, warm and welcoming - breakfast had a creative menu

Upscale and friendly. The food was delicious and such nice atmosphere.

The service and accommodations we great. We had one meal in the hotel which was excellent. All in all in was a great experience. I would recommend the hotel to anyone planning to stay in Richmond.

We stayed two days to see a little of Richmond. This hotel is lovely, well maintained, has an on-call car service that was great for easy transportation around town. Food at he hotel's restaurant was very good, service excellent, etc.

Free local car service is good feature. Beautiful lobby. Nice gym, and free access to Y across street.

Roomy rooms, upscale accommodations. Great ambiance in this late 1800's hotel. Great tradition and southern charm is apparent.

Was there to attend Board meetings around Richmond. I've stayed in Richmond over 20 times, and have used five other hotels. Nothing compares.

The hotel property is beautiful - comparable to a Ritz Carlton. Check-in: desk clerk was polite and efficient. Room: clean, well stocked, beautiful. TJ's: ordered steak (outstanding), waitress was nice but asked "Is everything OK?" too many times (I'm nitpicking, I know). In the morning asked bellhop for directions to the hotel restaurant - he was rude and disrespectful (I have no idea why). Check-out: hotel tried to charge me for the stay again! Check-out clerk would not admit it was a mistake or apologize but claimed to reverse the charge. But would not give me a charge slip showing the reversal. The unauthorized charge to my Visa and the rude bellhop is enough for me to not recommend this hotel. Too bad because the hotel is historical and very elegant.
