The Jefferson Hotel has long been known as Washington, D.C.'s most discerning hotel, catering to the world's elite travelers. It enjoys one of the city's most prestigious and strategic locations, at the corner of 16th and M Streets - just four blocks from the White House and within a short walk of the Smithsonian museums, national monuments and various embassies. It is convenient to the dining, shops and nightlife of Georgetown and Penn Quarter, as well as the Washington, D.C. downtown business district and Dupont Circle.
The European ambience of The Jefferson's 99 guest room and Washington, D.C. hotel suite accommodations evokes Thomas Jefferson's cherished years in Paris while an extraordinary attention to detail conveys the sense that one is staying in a private home. These two influences blend seamlessly in the hotel's spacious suites, where marble-tiled entryways lead to gracious parlors furnished in the style of a Parisian salon, with velvet couches and whitewashed writing desks perfectly placed on parquet flooring under beautifully hand-crafted chandeliers.
As of January 1, 2010, The Jefferson, Washington, DC has gained acceptance into the prestigious ranks of the Relais & Châteaux luxury hotel collection. The hotel has the added distinction of being the first Relais & Châteaux hotel in Washington, D.C. in the 55-year history of the organization.
