    The Jefferson Hotel
    Richmond, VA
    2.3 miles to city center
    • Free WiFi

    4.5-star Hotel Class
    • Free WiFi

    First accepting guests in 1895, The Jefferson Hotel in Richmond, Virginia, is an award winner several times over: Travel experts find what real-life travelers uphold, which is that The Jefferson Hotel's design, furnishings and staff exude Southern charm. Recent visitors rave about the spacious rooms, each appointed with deluxe amenities like custom bedding, Molton Brown bath products and Nespresso coffee makers. For an extra dose of luxury, reserve one of the Ginter Suites, which each sprawl across more than 1,000 square feet and come equipped with a king-sized bed, a dressing area and a kitchenette, among other features. One of the best-loved amenities is this downtown hotel's indoor pool and its 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 The Jefferson Hotel's other perk, as it's centrally located to visit both the Virginia State Capitol and the city's Museum District sites.

    5.0-star Hotel Class
    • Free Parking

    • Free WiFi

    This resort can be found about 46 miles west of Washington, D.C., in Middleburg, Virginia, but with its acres of rolling fields and relaxed atmosphere, it feels like it's worlds away from the hectic capital. Travelers love the colonial decor, complete with hardwood floors, plantation-style architecture and traditional design accents. Guest rooms are spacious and come equipped with flat-panel TVs, minibars and excellent views. Salamander Resort & Spa also features an expansive equestrian facility, allowing guests to test their horseback riding skills (for an additional fee). For something more relaxing, make an appointment at the Salamander Spa, which also houses an infinity pool and a fitness center. Lastly, finish off your day at Harrimans, which earns praise from guests for its locally sourced cuisine. Some caution, though, that service provided throughout the property is disappointing.

    If the looks are any indication of this Preferred Legend resort's excellence, we're sold. Lush grounds surrounded by Virginia's Blue Ridge Mountains, architecture inspired by the best Tuscan designs and guest rooms resplendent with soft fabrics and sophisticated furniture are all indicative of the luxury found at Keswick Hall & Golf Club. Recent guests were pleased with this resort's intimate feel (with only 48 rooms, Keswick has a commendable staff-to-guest ratio). Be sure to grab a snack at Villa Crawford, eat dinner at Fossett's restaurant and enjoy a nightcap at Villa Crawford Bar. All three options fare well with recent patrons, but some guests did report hiccups with service for large groups. For a more casual dining experience, retreat to the Club Grill, which also receives two thumbs up from past lodgers. When planning your trip, however, you should keep in mind that this property is located approximately 9 miles east of Charlottesville, Virginia.
