Stayed two nights in the Jefferson Hotel. What a treat! Tour this hotel and you can picture the parties that must have happened here during the Roaring 20s. This historic property just screams “Gatsby!” Be sure to walk through the small alcove under the lobby stairs, which provides an interesting history of the hotel and its owner. The rooms were...

Thank you for your review and for your visit to The Jefferson! The hotel is steeped in history and we love to share that with our guests in our "museum" that you mentioned. Hope you got to see the picture of the alligators and the picture of Elvis in 1953 seated at the hotel's original lunch counter. We hope you...

We love to stay at The Jefferson Hotel, especially during the Christmas holidays as the decorations are extraordinary! Afternoon tea is a must, and the food is fabulous at Lemaire and the Sunday brunch is excellent! The Jefferson has such an interesting history...she is a refined and gracious landmark in Richmond. The rooms are furnished well and are very comfortable....

We stayed last weekend and had high expectations for our stay based on The Jefferson Hotel's reputation. The entire experience exceeded our expectations and recommend a stay at The Jefferson Hotel. Service was top notch. Our room was in an excellent location and the turn down service was a nice touch and greatly appreciated. So many little details added up...

I love The Jefferson Hotel because when I drive in someone is always there to take my bags and when we (my dog Una) go to the desk to check in they always have treats for her. I have a yellow lab who has stayed here several times and the staff treat her like she is a two-legged person. Aside...

It is a dreamy place to stay. Beautiful and historic. I think The room is comfortable with lovely toiletries. I just think the rooms are a little plain compared to the opulence of the rest of the hotel which is jaw dropping amazing.

Just read the review by "racist" which I found couldn't be farther from the truth based upon my stays at the Jefferson over the past 20 years. My brother and I (African Americans) frequently stay at the Jefferson on business and pleasure. Clearly the beauty, location, and excellent service speak for themselves. We have never felt uncomfortable in this hotel...

I've stayed here several times now on the recommendation of a local customer and haven't been disappointed. The gracious staff and eye popping opulent public areas are especially memorable. The rooms are very nicely appointed and still include pointed toilet paper and nightly turn-down service with a chocolate. The beds are very comfortable and the linens feel and smell good....

It was great to see this beautiful hotel. We arrived in a terrible storm. The bellhop was so accommodating-our minivan and family of 5 was a mess from a long road trip. I suspect we are not the average Jefferson guest. The morning we left they had transformed the lower lobby for a convention reception. Many businessmen around. The hotel...
