Expert reviews

Frommers review:

“If you can afford to, stay at The Jefferson, which I consider to be D.C.’s best hotel. And if you can’t afford to, at least stop in at Quill, the hotel’s delightful bar, where the bartender will invent a cocktail to please you, right on the spot.”

Featured as Frommer’s Exceptional Choice in Washington.

Fodors review:

“Many regard this small historic hotel, within walking distance of the White House and sumptuously renovated in 2009, as the city’s best. Distinguished guests have been staying here since 1923.”

Featured as Fodor’s Choice in Washington.

Forbes review:

“The Jefferson, Washington, D.C. underwent a major renovation before reopening in 2009, when the lobby was updated and an arched skylight dating back to the 1920s was unveiled. The decor and art throughout the hotel echo the taste of Thomas Jefferson — most of the furniture consists of custom-built replicas of pieces from Monticello, Jefferson’s home.”

Telegraph review:

“This historic boutique hotel in a 1920s building charms guests with its elegant design and Michelin-starred restaurant. A luxurious library lounge, stylish cocktail bar, high-end spa services and large bathrooms are highlights of this upscale hotel that pays homage to founding father Thomas Jefferson.”
