Lonely Planet review
The elegant, two-winged 1923 mansion has an ornate porte cochere, beaux arts architecture and a luxurious interior full of crystal and velvet, all meant to evoke namesake Thomas Jefferson’s digs when he lived in Paris. Favored by diplomatic visitors, the hotel’s antique-furnished rooms waft silk sheets, four-poster luxury, tobacco and earth tones, and Gilded Age class.
The 95-room luxury boutique regularly places near the top of Washington’s best-hotel lists. The on-site cocktail bar is superb for a nightcap while listening to the gentleman piano player.
Our independent authors have visited The Jefferson Hotel and selected this as one of our recommended hotels in Dupont Circle & Kalorama.
