The average price for a guest room is about $500 per night at The Jefferson, Washington, D.C. Prices vary depending on the season (winter months are slower), but the hotel's most basic guest room — the classic room — averages $450 per night. There's little that's basic about these rooms, however. You’ll find complimentary water that is bottled and sealed onsite, a Bose Wave radio tuned to classical music upon your arrival and other technological amenities including a television embedded in the bathroom mirror, a flat-screen TV and free Wi-Fi.
The room's furnishings are traditional and include touches inspired by the Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel’s namesake at every turn. Art, from the hotel owner's own collection, is inspired by Jefferson, as are the curtains and pillows printed with schematics and images of the former president's estate, Monticello. You won't find this fabric at local stores — it's been specially licensed to the hotel by Jefferson's estate.
Larger rooms at the Washington D.C. include more space, better views and, in the case of suites, extra rooms, parlors and even an on-suite kitchen. Premium king rooms average $500 per night, and deluxe king rooms, which include the hotel's eight tub rooms, are $550 per night. Suites start at $950 per night and go as high as $7,000 per night for the top-level Jefferson suite, which is bigger than most Washington homes. It includes a breathtaking view of the Washington Monument and White House and has probably housed many of the authors in the hotel's library of writers who have been guests, including Diane Keaton, David Baldacci and Ron Reagan, son of the 40th president.
