Enjoying a well-earned reputation as Washington, D.C.'s best small boutique hotel, The Jefferson has presided over the corner of 16th and M Streets since 1923, when the Beaux Arts gem opened as apartments and later as a hotel for the world's elite travelers and DC’s most important visitors.
Rich in historical details, this downtown Washington, D.C. hotel is both European and Washingtonian in style, and inspirations from its namesake. Tributes to Thomas Jefferson and his beloved Monticello are found throughout. Areas of discovery unfold at every turn; private nooks, original Thomas Jefferson-signed documents, a Book Room filled with leather-bound volumes on Jefferson's favorite subjects and signed editions by contemporary authors who have been among the hotel's distinguished guests.
Every member of the staff is dedicated to ensuring that each guest's stay is most enjoyable. The moment they arrive, guests are ushered to a comfortable chair for check-in. Individual needs are accommodated as when staying with a close friend at a private residence.
We hope you will join the new generation of "Jeffersonians" among our guests who make our hotel their home in downtown Washington, D.C.
