My husband i live in Williamsburg, just 51 miles from Richmond, but our favorite "go to" hotel for 20 years was The Jefferson, and we decided sometimes on a Friday aft to go for the weekend. It is luxurious in every respect, and we have always been treated like royalty at each visit. We loved eating at TJs and Lemaire and exploring Richmond where there is much more to see than you could ever imagine. Sadly, my husband passed away last summer, and i recently decided to take a baby step vacation alone. My first and only thought was The Jefferson. I had been in touch with the GM to let him know i would be alone this time, and i was taken aback by his kindness. A bottle of wine and chocolate covered strawberries were sent to my room the first night; i was given a suite instead of the superior room i expected; and knowing i wanted to see the exhibition at the Virginia Museum of Art, a ticket was waiting for me at check in. The hotel was decorated beautifully, and although seeing families and couples together was sad for me, there is no place i would rather have been during my first holiday season without my husband. THIS is what The Jefferson embodies for me: the kindness of staff and management, excellent accommodations (wait'll you see the TV in the bathroom mirror if you choose to watch an NFL game while getting ready for bed!), great food, courtesy at every point, and just a bit of sorrow the weekend had to end. Thank you to all of you at The Jefferson!
