The Jefferson hotel is a nationally-celebrated and globally-recognized hotel. It is also bastion of American heritage and local pride, and its guests are uniquely positioned close to all of the historic sites of Washington DC.
Originally opened in 1923 as luxury apartments, the Beaux Arts facade of The Jefferson has long been a fixture in its prestigious neighborhood. The modern boutique hotel emerged in 2009, following a two-year renovation that saw its suites and common areas take on new, updated life. The renovation was not only enhancing, but also illuminating. A fantastic original skylight had been covered for decades until it was revealed and restored, assuming a place of pride over the heads of visitors in the lobby.
In 1955 The Jefferson transitioned from coveted apartment spaces into a luxury boutique hotel. Today’s traveler enjoys thoughtful updates and comforts across its 95 guestrooms. Soak in the tub in the marble-clad en-suite bath, complete with an in-mirror television. Other modern amenities include wireless Internet access throughout and a smart television balance the classic-inspired design and decor.
Guests may also opt to spread out in one of two specialty suites. Retire to the top floor and either the Thomas Jefferson or the Martha Jefferson Suites. Each feature a relaxing separate living space and numerous Juliet balconies that open out over Washington DC. The feminine-inspired Martha is decked in pale pastels and a romantic canopied bed, while her presidential counterpart commands a view of the Washington Monument and the White House.
Many aspects of The Jefferson pay homage to its namesake, founding father Thomas Jefferson. You will find lavish bespoke window treatments in each room that were designed after the Parisian toile textiles that Jefferson acquired to decorate Monticello. Stocked with antique tomes and historical works, the Book Room is inspired by Jefferson’s Book Room in Monticello. At the Quill bar, find parquet flooring modeled after the floors in Monticello, and maps of Europe from the 18th century that trace Jefferson’s travels through Germany, France, and Italy.
Quill is joined by two unique restaurants that are a part of The Jefferson experience. The Greenhouse is lit by the natural light from the building’s original skylight, perfectly complementing the light and fresh menu. Plume is a paragon of fine dining, honored by Wine Spectator and blessed with a coveted Michelin star.
