Historical Traveller Reviews of The Jefferson Hotel
Beautiful Hotelfrom Welshquin
The lobbies are stunning - no words can do them justice - and have to be seen to be believed.
Our room was very comfortable and quite large (deluxe room).
We dined at Lemaire and had the "Autumn Sampler", which was a set meal of about 6 courses of autumn foods with accompanying wines. It was a lovely experience.
We had room service breakfast, which was served on time, by a friendly member of staff, who went out of her way to set everything up. It was very good indeed.
All in all, a great experience which comes highly recommended.
Charming and comfortablefrom thanford
Great service and beautiful hotelfrom A TripAdvisor Member
We did not indulge in the Jefferson's champagne brunch, but it looked very impressive. We had a buffet breakfast in Lemaire, which was very tasty, but the service was a little slow. the hotel also has a very modern fitness area and a nice pool. For Richmond, this is definitely a top place to stay. Would recommend.
A Grand Hotel in a Not so Grand Cityfrom ashia
Wonderful Richmond oasisfrom adamunc
One word: Wow!from A TripAdvisor Member
We got it on Orbitz for $179 a night for a deluxe room. After the long drive to Richmond, we arrived late at night and the friendly clerk upgraded us - we didn't ask - to a studio suite. The room had to be 600 square feet, with a full living room and everything.
THE PUBLIC SPACES
Truly unbelievable. From the amazing skylights to the Jefferson statue to the famous staircase, this hotel looks like it's a movie set. It's truly breathtaking - now we know why the hotel's tagline was "We'll pick up your bags and your jaws." We felt like we were on the Titanic or something - it was just unbelievably beautiful.
Absolutely gorgeous. I've stayed in some great hotels - Loews Hotel Vogue in Montreal, Otesaga in Cooperstown, NY, plenty of Westins, etc - and this was by far the best. I want to live in that room - it was just simply amazing. Free complimentary slippers!
All in all, this is well worth the stay. The Jefferson is an attraction in itself - its history is amazing! We're planning on returning to Richmond simply to stay at this hotel again.
soundproofing neededfrom dOuglask5
We also ate in the grill and found the service pleasant enough, but the portions small and the food overpriced.
The free in-town transpotation is a nice feature. The consierge was also very good.
Very nice hotel indeedfrom A TripAdvisor Member
Last year, I spent 220 days travelling, staying in hotels throughout the world, the US in particular. As a result, I've become something of a demanding customer, and look at all hotels through very critical eyes. That notwithstanding, I am delighted to report that the Jefferson is a charming hotel, with very friendly and capable staff and good amenities for the business traveller.
The free wireless internet is nice, and the rooms are well appointed and most comfortable. The restaurants are superb, and the staff make a point of referring to you courteously by name and never being underfoot (being asked how my meal is while I have my mouth full really, really ------ me off, and I'm glad they don't do it here). Also, small touches are very appealing to me, such as very new bathrobes in the rooms, good quality toiletries, secure in-room safes and well selected lighting - these things separate great hotels from good ones.
While the fabled staircase is nowhere near as pretty as it was before the last refit or two, judging from their historical exhibit in the corner of the Rotunda, this is a lovely property which does everything which could be asked of it, and I recommend it wholeheartedly.
I would liken this hotel to the Governor Hotel in Portland, the Hermitage Hotel in Nashville, the Fairmont Palliser in Calgary or the Plaza Hotel in New York (although mercifully less gauche than that). Nice company to be in.

Top Local Tips for Richmond
Traveling within Richmond You can have them park your car and then forget about transportation, since The Jefferson will drop you off and pick you up anywhere you want to go in Richmond, relieving the guest of concerns about directions, etc. We did not take advantage of this feature this time, but will next time.
A must try!! If you're in to fine dining, you must try Copper Grill at Short Pump Mall!!
OMNI hotel Keep dimes in your car. There is a toll on the way to the hotel which charges 2. 2 dimes that is. St Johns' church is famous for "give me liberty or give me death'. We enjoyed the history.
