The Jefferson is DC’s most chicly gracious hotel, cool but unstuffy, like the hotel’s namesake, no doubt.
Headliners avoiding the limelight and romancing couples heart the hotel’s location, a tad off-course from the thick of things, but within a stroll of the White House. The Jefferson collects top accolades like a braniac racks up A’s; most recently, the U.S. News and World Report named The Jefferson the second best hotel in the country.
Its 95 rooms include suites with a view of the Washington Monument; all rooms incorporate design nods to Thomas Jefferson (scenes of Monticello everywhere) and to his beloved Paris (French linens, toile fabrics).
Stop by Quill for a clever cocktail or dine on haute cuisine in Plume. Is that The Edge sitting next to you? Could be.
