How it Ranks: The Jefferson Hotel ranks #1 out of 102 Richmond Hotels based on an evaluation of expert ratings and awards, as well as user reviews. The hotel scored high enough to make the U.S. News list of the Best Hotels in Richmond.

Our Take: The Jefferson Hotel is an award winner several times over: Travel experts find what real-life travelers uphold, which is that the Jefferson's design, furnishings and staff exude Southern charm. Recent visitors rave about the spacious suites, dressed in neutral tones, and appointed with deluxe amenities like sumptuous linens, lavish bath products and wet bars. For an extra dose of luxury, reserve the Presidential Suite, which sprawls across 1,400 square feet and comes equipped with a marble balcony, three fireplaces and a baby grand piano, among other features. One of the best-loved amenities is this downtown hotel's indoor pool, which also boasts a sequestered outdoor sundeck. Previous visitors also praise on-site restaurants Lemaire and TJ's. Lemaire is an upscale venue that specializes in New American fare, while TJ's is a casual Southern bistro that boasts an extensive selection of seasonal microbrews. Convenience is Jefferson's other perk, as it's close to the Museum District sites.
