The Jefferson, Washington, DC

A hotel at once classic and contemporary. We bring delight to the details.

The Jefferson has long been known as Washington, DC's top small luxury hotel, catering to the worlds most elite travelers. It pairs a powerhouse location just four blocks from the White House with a culture of service unlike any other top-tier hotel in the city.

Rich in historical details, the hotel is both European and Washingtonian in style, and inspirations from its namesake, Thomas Jefferson, are found throughout. It is home to one of the cities finest restaurants, Plume, and a lounge, Quill, that is elevating the art of cocktails in Washington, DC.

Every member of the Jefferson staff is dedicated to ensuring that each guest's stay is most enjoyable from the moment they arrive and are ushered to a comfortable chair for check-in and as intuitive to individual needs as if guests were staying with a close friend. Their team hopes you will join the new generation of Jeffersonians who make our hotel their home in Washington. Thomas Jefferson once said, Every generation needs a new revolution. At The Jefferson, Washington, DC, a revolution in comfort and hospitality has begun.
