Portland, Oregon1 contribution
There's a reason why this hotel was listed as one of T&L's 2021 World's Best Hotels: The Jefferson staff are true professionals. Hospitable and welcoming, superb service, and excellent restaurant recommendations from Eric, the concierge, we were very sad to leave. Some of our most memorable meals in DC were at the Quill, friendly staff, and the food was great. Megan and Katie steered us right in recommending our favorite cocktail "The Hill Bee," and Stacie at the front desk is exemplary in hospitality professionalism. It was a treat to come back from a long day of museums, to an immaculate room with special touches like a piccolo bottle of champagne for the birthday, or to a superb in-room meal with all the accoutrements. We look forward to returning soon!

Hotel's Favourite
For five years before covid, we stayed at this top-notch boutique hotel as tourists visiting DC, in all seasons. Then, we moved here and as residents got to enjoy it all regularly. It has always offered an outstanding level of service, class, and hospitality. As it has just re-opened, it is so wonderful to see it hasn’t lost its touch. It’s as beautiful and welcoming as ever. We’ve had breakfast in The Greenhouse and dinner in the main dining room this week. The food is still amazing. As noted in another review, everyone on staff is helpful and friendly. This is a unique and special place. Beautiful spaces; a gracious and professional staff; very comfortable, upscale hotel rooms; excellent food; and, a superb bar and wait staff. High class all around. The Jefferson is popular with both tourists and locals. The efforts of all who work there create an atmosphere a cut above and you love being part of it. They have a loyal following of professionals in the city and residents who know how great it is. For tourists, it’s well-situated for lots of activities around the city; and, the staff knows how to make your stay memorable. After a year+ of covid shutdowns, and outstanding businesses having to close, it’s so gratifying to see The Jefferson open for business again. Highly recommend it.

We stayed at The Jefferson for several days at the end of August. The suite was beautiful decorated and very clean. We particularly appreciated the deep soaking tub and the great water pressure in the large shower. The housekeeping staff kept everything spotless. The room service was constantly delicious and timely (the chocolate covered strawberries were a true delight!). The staff practiced social distancing and 100% mask wearing at all times; we felt very safe staying at The Jefferson, and appreciated how diligent everyone was with public health. It's an easy walk to the nearest Metro station, and many great restaurants were in walking distance as well. The doormen at The Jefferson always had a cool bottle of water for us as we departed each day, and a friendly greeting when we returned. The entire experience was delightful. We have only glowing and positive things to say about staying here, and feel lucky we chose The Jefferson to stay at during our vacation trip.

We recently spent two nights at The Jefferson - the last stop on a long road trip. We were so happy that the hotel was open again. This was our third visit. The service received from all was better than ever! This trip was the first time we took advantage of the Quill where we had drinks and dinner. We made use of one of the comfortable "cabinet" meeting rooms. From check-in, room service, booking the meeting room, valet service - everything was Excellent!!!
