If you don't already love putting on a nice, fluffy robe upon entering your hotel room, the turndown service at The Jefferson, Washington, D.C. will nudge you to do so, and fall in love. After a day on the nearby National Mall or an evening of customized Mastermind cocktails at Quill, the hotel bar, you'll return to your room to find the lights dimmed, the top of your bedcovers turned down and The Jefferson's impossibly plush white robe placed on the bed. Put it on and peruse the Forbes Travel Guide Four Star hotel's room service breakfast options, which are also placed on the bed on a large, black card.
If you haven't already slipped out of your shoes, get to it and slide on the robe's matching plush slippers, which are placed at each side of the bed on a white placemat. Pad to the bathroom and brush your teeth while you catch John Stewart or Stephen Colbert on the 17-inch TV that's embedded in the mirror, then retire to your bed for a cold glass of water. A bottle of the Washington D.C. hotel's house-bottled and -sealed water, in an etched glass bottle bearing the hotel name and logo, is placed beside your bed with glasses and a bucket of ice.
