“Grand Traditional Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 19 June 2014

The public areas of the hotel are exceptionally beautiful. Every aspect of the hotel are first rate from the staff to the room and amenities. The courtesy transportation to the dining/entertainment district was a nice touch and the driver couldn't have been more friendly. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay. The only disappointment was that the bar in the lower grand hall closed at 4pm. It would have been a very pleasant place for an evening cocktail.

Thank you for your review. We do apologize that TJ's was not available beyond 4:00pm during your stay due to their summer hours but we do hope that you were able to enjoy a beverage in Lemaire Bar or on the Lemaire Patio.

We found the rooms very comfortable - especially liked the 2 comfortable chairs and ottomans. Room was spacious and bed was exceptionally comfortable. Bathroom large but could have used more counter space and places to hang towels. Also they were having wi-fi problems during our stay and we couldn't always get connected. Service was very good too. Stayed here as part of a tour so can't comment on value.

The rooms are super clean with upper cost furniture as you would expect of any 4 star property, yet they are in a rejuvation program. The food service and restaurants are tops with unique local dishes. The late Saturday afternoon harp music and snacks and tea is a wonderful respite from a. Busy week..The owners are preserving a civilize way of live that is always enjoyed

Room Tip: The basic suite seems to be the best value

I stayed at the Jefferson for a meeting. I called too late for the special group rate and paid $110 more than if I had called earlier, but when I arrived they had upgraded me to a suite.
Beautiful common areas. Very comfortable beds and VERY QUIET. never heard a sound in the hall, or toilets flushing or water running.
I would stay here again.
They have a shuttle thru the historic area which I did not use. But I like the self park ( valet is available) and we walked to Shockpe Slip for dinner in about 15 minutes
Well worth the price

This hotel has one of the most impressive lobby areas, particularly down towards the restaurant. Check in was incredibly easy, and the other employees of the hotel were very accommodating. The room was impeccably clean. The bed was very comfortable. The room was a bit on the smaller side, but not surprising for an antique hotel. The rooms were appointed with modern decor, including a desk and a very comfortable easy chair. The bath amenities were great. Breakfast in the morning was perfect. In the unlikely event I am in Richmond again, I will absolutely stay at the Jefferson Hotel.

I attended a wedding in Richmond on Saturday May 24, 2014. We stayed 2 nights at the hotel. We attended the wedding reception and a brunch at The Jefferson. The decor of the hotel was one of the best that I have ever seen. The service was flawless. Our room was top notch. They were even able to arrange to have my Lincoln washed for me prior to the wedding.

Room Tip: Our family party had a total of 15 rooms and EVERYONE raved about their room.

My friends and I stayed in this hotel for one night on our way down to Charleston and loved it.

The hotel was beautiful and staff very friendly. There were a lot of places to sit throughout the huge beautiful lobby. We enjoyed sitting with a glass of wine and relaxing down there.

The rooms were also very spacious and very clean and the beds were very comfortable.

Although our stay was short I would definitely recommend it to anyone staying in Richmond.
