A regal and intimate D.C. boutique hotel

73 Rooms / 23 Suites

The Jefferson, Washington, DC underwent a major renovation before reopening in 2009, when the lobby was updated and an arched skylight dating back to the 1920s was unveiled. The decor and art throughout the hotel echo the taste of Thomas Jefferson — most of the furniture consists of custom-built replicas of pieces from Monticello, Jefferson's home. In Plume, the hotel's fine dining restaurant, you can dine on fresh regional cuisine inspired by the gardens of Jefferson's home and gaze at the hand-painted mural of the south vineyard of Monticello on the walls. Framed maps throughout the hotel depict areas where the third president traveled to and was fond of, and some rooms have framed quotes from the leader. The hotel staff members are incredibly knowledgeable and passionate about Jefferson's life and the history of the hotel; they'll happily share many fascinating stories if you ask. Rooms have skylights or city views, Italian marble bathrooms, antique-style furniture custom built to work with modern technology and accents that nod to Jefferson's life, such as a throw detailed with subtle green drawings of Monticello. A personal butler greets every guest and will assist with any needs.
