My wife and I stayed at The Jefferson recently and had a wonderful time. We were greeted by several friendly porters, all wearing tails and sporting gold pins. They ushered us to an elegant reception area in the beautiful main lobby. There were busts of Jefferson and original documents penned by the man himself hanging on the wall. The reception area had a fantastic painting on the wall behind the desks. Overall, you really felt like you had stepped back in time when you walked through the doors. Everyone was very friendly and helpful, including one man who noticed us looking at the document display and came over to explain each piece.
The room was spotless and well-appointed, with beautiful furniture, a great bed, a fantastic bathroom (with the strongest shower I’ve ever seen in a hotel) and a flat-panel TV embedded in the bathroom mirror. We had room-service for breakfast, and the service was top-notch. It really showcased the attention to detail you can expect, from the warm and friendly person taking the order, to the table set-up in the room, and lastly to the delicious lemon ricotta pancakes…it was exactly how room service should be.
We had dinner at Plume, the main restaurant at The Jefferson. The meal was fantastic, the wine list was beyond compare, and the restaurant itself was absolutely beautiful. Once again, the staff didn’t miss a thing, and the sommelier was very helpful and enthusiastic.
Rather than trying to offer every amenity under the sun like a large resort property, the Jefferson takes a different approach and does a few things exceptionally well. This is a hotel that caters to people who want 5-star service in a quiet, elegant setting. In that regard, The Jefferson clearly hits the mark.
