Every U.S. president since Calvin Coolidge has visited the hotel — Ronald Reagan preferred to have his hair cut here.

Hotel Tip

Upon entering Plume from the lobby, look up — the spectacular 1920s skylight was covered for decades until the 2009 refurbishments.

LUXWT Review

By: Lauren Yochum ( @sporkwine )

The walls are lined with pieces of history, the lobby is buzzing with dignitaries and the décor (much like the people) are perfectly appointed. Situated on a prominent corner in DC mere blocks from The White House you’ll find The Jefferson. A hotel steeped in tradition dating back to 1923, today the space infuses modern day elegance and convenience into the stately Beaux Arts structure. The result is both distinctly European and Washingtonian, featuring the rich, historical influences of the hotel’s namesake, Thomas Jefferson.

You’ll be greeted by a friendly and organized staff ready to make your stay exceptional. This includes a knowledgeable concierge team that is always ready to assist with dining options, museum recommendations and more. The spacious and immaculate rooms provide the opportunity to relax after a day of business or sightseeing. 

At Plume, the only restaurant in DC to be awarded both a Michelin Star and a Forbes Five Star rating, you’ll find the perfect fusion of traditional and modern. Jefferson was said to be an avid wine enthusiast and the wine program is certainly a reflection of his passion. The core of their list is based upon what Thomas Jefferson drank in his time and what he might drink if he were still alive today. Within the list you’ll find over 50 different vintages of wine from the world’s most renowned regions. By day the space transitions to The Greenhouse and offers and equally impressive breakfast and lunch. If your dining plans take you out of the hotel, make a stop at Quill before dinner. Sip cocktails or a glass of champagne at the stunning glass bar or underneath wine maps from Jefferson’s personal collection. 

Jefferson once said “It is wonderful how much may be done if we are always doing.” When you are done doing all that needs to be done in DC, you’ll find the perfect respite at The Jefferson. 

Best of the Best, Awards & Accolades:

Hotel Highlights:

  • Lobby features historic documents bearing Jefferson’s signature.

  • Discover a library with a collection of books signed by famous authors that previously stayed at the hotel.

  • Take your seat at the nation’s only glass bar at Quill.

  • Order from a wine list inspired by Jefferson’s passion and enjoy while studying maps of wine regions from his personal collection. 

  • Conveniently located blocks from major sites and museums including The White House and National Mall.


Enjoying a well-earned reputation as Washington, D.C.’s best boutique hotel, The Jefferson has presided over the corner of 16th and M Streets since 1923, when the Beaux Arts gem opened as an apartment complex 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 (four blocks from the White House) is both European and Washingtonian in style. Tributes to its namesake Thomas Jefferson and his beloved Monticello are found throughout. Areas of discovery unfold at every turn; private nooks, original 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.


In homage to its namesake president, The Jefferson stands as the beaux arts belle of the United States capital. Detailed crown moldings, fine woodwork and frescoes of Monticello are found throughout, as are period antiques and Thomas Jefferson–signed documents. The 99-guestroom hotel features high-tech touches such as Smart TVs and in-mirror bathroom televisions. The restaurant Plume, having received five stars from Forbes and its first Michelin star, ranks among D.C.'s finest.
