A friend and I went to the Jefferson about a week before Christmas to hear a band called 'The Offering' play Christmas music. The band was super and the decorations were absolutely beautiful. I've lived in Richmond 8 years wanting to go there every Christmas just to see the elegant decorations and I finally made it and hope to go...

We are delighted that you were able to visit during the holidays and do hope that you'll visit again this year. Our schedule for the Music at Midday concerts, in which The Offerings appear each year, will be issued in early fall and we recommend lunch reservations for TJ's well in advance as they are popular and fill quickly.

The Jefferson Hotel offers the experience of staying at a historic fancy hotel at a much smaller cost than Grove Park Inn and the drive to Richmond is an hour shorter than to Asheville for us, so for Valentine's weekend my husband took advantage of this and booked a night at the Jefferson for us with the breakfast package. We...

The Jefferson is by far the best hotel in Richmond! I stayed there during the summer, the staff is amazing and the rooms are very clean. The hotel has great restaurants, and an exceptional business center. Very very good hotel! A+++++++++++++++++

My wife and I spent one night here over the Christmas. Our only regret was that we didn't stay here longer. What a grand hotel! The hotel is a beautiful, historic property and was elegantly decorated for the holiday. My wife and I stayed in a Deluxe room. it was a little bit more money than the standard room, but...

I recently stayed at the Jefferson Hotel for two nights while on a business trip to Richmond. This is a very elegant and grand old hotel. I thought the room was rather small but understandable for a historic property. The room was clean but did show some wear and tear. The marble bathroom was nice and very clean but again,...

I stay at the Jefferson every month for an ongoing business meeting. The hotel in gorgeous and rooms are comfortable (except the pillows- they are too soft for my liking, so I pack my own). Definitely a place to take someone you would like to impress!

The Jefferson is one of those old, grand buildings with the beautiful ceilings and stately rooms. It is in a decent part of town, with some good nightspots within a few blocks. Rooms are decent sized, with high ceilings, free wifi, and nice amenities. Unfortunately, during our stay, the hotel was hosting a wedding rehearsal party, and some trial attorneys...
