It is an all you can eat brunch with a breakfast / lunch and dessert section. Not to forget the all you drink bubbly. Service good be a little more attentive -...

The Jefferson, a landmark hotel, was nice the last time I visited Richmond. It needed some 'refreshing.' Well, it got it. The room I had was enormous, beautifully appointed and comfortable. There were insufficient outlets previously, making it a challenge to get all of the electronic gear charged, but that's been solved. The fitness center was well appointed as well....

I stayed there after my son's wedding, it was absolutely perfect! The room was luxurious and impeccable decorated. I dream of returning. I have also dined at Lamaire and would give it an outstanding review! It is truly worth a visit. Go at Christmas....unbelievably gorgeous! It is truly worth a visit!

We spent a weekend in Richmond and stayed at the Jefferson on the recommendation of a friend. Everything about the hotel was as promised: the room was beautiful, service was amazing, and the location is great. We were greeted on arrival by the valet. We wanted to self park, so he gave us suggestions as to where we could best...

The Jefferson is a Classic in everything. How good to see this, nowadays, plenty of “Design Hotels” and other adjectives which, in most cases, are used to hide the simple fact that they do not offer what we expect from a Hotel. This is not the case at the Jefferson where everything, from check in to check out is of...

This is one of the finest hotels in the South. The main staircase was actually used in the film Gone With The Wind. The various restaurants offer a great dining experience. The rooms are well appointed and maintained. Service at every level is impeccable. Though an old hotel it has been well appointed. It's location is close to everything downtown....

Thank you for your review! We would be remiss if we did not let you and other readers know that the Grand Staircase at The Jefferson was not used in the legendary film, Gone with the Wind. It has, however, been a wonderful, long-time rumor. It is very easy to imagine Scarlett and Rhett on the Grand Staircase in those...

We were staying outside of Richmond, but had heard so much about the lobby in the Jefferson Hotel, that we had to visit it. We were not disappointed. The lobbies are so impressive. When you walk into the upper lobby from the main entrance, you see all these huge marble columns and then in the center of the lobby is...

We loved the hotel. It was super clean, had all the amenities of a high end hotel, and had great customer service. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is because there was no duvet cover. They use two sheets to cover the duvet but if you don't have something that completely encases the duvet, you and every...

Thank you for your review! We did want to address your concerns regarding the duvet cover as other guests may also wonder why hotels often choose to use 2 sheets to cover a duvet rather than duvet covers. The daily replacement of those sheets allows us to provide the most sanitary environment for our guests. We sincerely apologize, however, that...
