  • 8.0.Very good

    Good and Bad

    Negatives first: They charge $15 for self parking for the night/day which is frustrating pending the hotel rooms are not cheap. The bed for me was not comfortable, my husband didnt mind it. I also got a soda ( can for $4 jeez, it was out of date). Pros: The icecream we ordered / smores was delicious. The bathroom was very nice, and the overall ambiance of the hotel was great.

    Best hotel ever!

    This weekend getaway was amazing! It was our 22 year anniversary celebration and we felt like royalty! We had a corner suite and it was spacious and beautiful. I love the decor, the diner at Lemaire restaurant was impeccable. The only thing I wish I had done was the spa… they get booked pretty quickly so book early. From the time we entered the lobby till we left, the staff displayed the best service. Maria was the front desk agent during our time there, she was so pleasant and friendly and made sure our needs were met. We did encounter a slight incident and had to change room and it was no biggie and we ended up in a bigger suite. I can’t wait to go back again as a family stay! We’ve stayed at so many hotels but none can outbeat this one. We’ve stayed at hotels in Japan, Okinawa, Hong Kong, Singapore, Korea, local states, and this is our most favorite hotel by far! Love love love it….

    We love The Jefferson!

    The Jefferson is an amazing historic hotel! We had a short stay, but loved every minute of it. All of the service staff was extremely polite and accommodating. We had the pleasure of dining at the hotel’s restaurant, Lemaire. It was top notch and even kid friendly. We all enjoyed our meals. Our room was very spacious and nicely updated, especially the bathroom! Heaven! The kids loved that there was a tv inside the mirror in the bathroom! We will definitely stay here again and recommend it to our friends and family!

    Always Feel Welcome

    Great place to stay with our dog on a long road trip. I missed the coffee in the lobby, but the staff found me some before the restaurant opened.

    Historic place. Unique.. only few hotels in the US with such a rick architecture and history, besides second to none service and state of the art amenities. For instance, you find a TV on the bathroom mirror.
