U.S. News Review

The Jefferson has been catering to Washington's most elite visitors since 1923, providing a taste of European luxury in the heart of the United States' capital. The Beaux-Arts era reigns supreme here, with early 20th-century paintings and sculpture lining the checkered floors. The Jefferson's elegant accommodations are appointed with custom-made duvets, plush bathrobes, sleek flat-screen TVs and complimentary Wi-Fi. (For a little more space, upgrade to a suite, which will come equipped with Nespresso coffeemakers and, in some suites, private balconies overlooking the Washington Monument.) Recent guests highly recommend making good use of the on-site spa during your stay, and the in-house gourmet restaurants, Plume and The Greenhouse, earn high praise. They also give props for the Jefferson's location, just a short walk from the National Mall. Privileged guests who are members of Relais & Châteaux' exclusive Club 5C program are eligible for benefits, such as room upgrades.
