Hotels We Covet – Discover the Historic and Elegant Jefferson HotelSaturday 19 August 2017
One of the best boutique hotels in the country and rich in historical details, The Jefferson Hotel, DC is both European and Washingtonian in style, with tributes to Thomas Jefferson and his beloved Monticello throughout. New discoveries await at every turn: private nooks, original Thomas Jefferson-signed documents, a Book Room filled with historic leather-bound volumes on Jefferson’s favourite subjects and signed editions from contemporary authors who have been among the distinguished guests of this boutique downtown Washington hotel. The Jefferson invites guests to enjoy the most gracious hospitality in its sumptuous quarters in the heart of Washington.
The elegant ambience of the guest rooms and suites evokes the hotel namesake’s cherished years in Paris as well as his time at Monticello. Extraordinary attention to detail conveys the sense of staying in a private residence. Here, you might find a book on Monticello on your side table, or perhaps a vintage copy of Goode’s Best Addresses. Rooms feature one of three elegant colour schemes, select rooms and suites feature windows that open to the outside and deep soaking tubs made of hand-cut Italian and Spanish stone and marble.

The Jefferson hotel’s top floor accommodations feature two expansive speciality hotel suites: The Thomas Jefferson and Martha Jefferson Suites. Both are exquisitely furnished, with soaring nine-foot ceilings and French doors that allow daylight to stream in and open to exceptional views of Washington, DC. In addition to the Thomas Jefferson and Martha Jefferson Suites, The Jefferson has eighteen additional sumptuously appointed hotel suites that provide a serene escape from the energy of the city. The suites are available in a choice of gold or platinum colour palettes, and each has a spacious parlour and small dining table to make you feel at home.
The Jefferson hotel is one of Washington, DC’s must-visit fine dining destinations. Plume is an award-winning restaurant and has been awarded a prestigious one-star Michelin, and the restaurant’s wine program has received Wine Spectator’s Best of Award of Excellence. For lighter fare, try Quill, the hotel’s creative cocktail bar and lounge offering a classic grill menu. For breakfast, lunch and brunch, enjoy The Greenhouse restaurant, where seasonal menus are inspired by the harvest from Jefferson’s kitchen gardens at Monticello.
The Petite Spa at The Jefferson hotel offers an exclusive, enlightening spa experience in Washington, DC. This intimate setting caters to only a fortunate few at a time, with each visit custom-crafted to the client’s desires. Fragrant botanicals, ancient spa traditions and the latest wellness techniques join together to help you look and feel your best. The enticing menu features massages, facials and body treatments as well as a specialised vinotherapy reflecting Thomas Jefferson’s passion for wine.
If Thomas Jefferson were staying away from his beloved Monticello, we believe that this luxury hotel in Washington, DC would be his first choice.
