The Jefferson Hotel is a Richmond Classic. This magnificent hotel captures the historic spirit of America. In fact, the Jefferson is the only hotel in the world to host every US President.
Every staff member at this hotel is determined to service the guests to utmost perfection. It is rare to see this at an individually branded hotel; rather you would expect this from a Four Seasons or Ritz Carlton affiliated property. The Jefferson has been rated Mobil Five Stars and AAA Five Diamonds. Achieving both of these designations is a rare distinction.
The location is somewhat distant from Richmond’s major attractions, but I felt that the service, charm and history made up for this. You can expect a five to ten minute drive to Richmond’s more popular tourist’s areas. For business purposes, the hotel appeared to be quite central to numerous downtown office buildings.
The Rooms at the Jefferson are spacious and well appointed. Don't expect the newest in decor or feel, as the building was built hundreds of years ago. That being said however, rooms were well appointed, and offered numerous modern conveniences. Bed comfort was excellent, with fine linens and down comforters.
Our room, a studio suite, featured a small but nice bathroom with a bathtub/shower combination.
Food quality was excellent throughout the hotel. In room dining was also superb. The hotel is quite famous for it's Sunday brunch, as well as high tea in the lobby.
While staying in Richmond, you won't be disappointed with the Jefferson. This is a unique American Hotel experience, which was worth the added cost. Relative to other major cities, our rate was a great value for a hotel of this caliber.
