Extraordinary hotel. Will return, luxurious.

southern hospitality is alive and well in Richmond at the Jefferson Hotel. Better than the Homestead, and what service. Worth a little extra to be driven, well attended and your pets adored. Can't wait to swim in that pool again, or have the lovely tea. Very special place.

The Jefferson Hotel was fabulous. We only spent one night there, but for that short of time, we enjoyed it. We went to High Tea at 4pm and comfortably enjoyed it for 2 hours. Breakfast the next morning was reasonable and very good. Learning about the history of the alligators in the hotel and seeing the alligator statues throughout was interesting.

Gorgeous hotel!

We have traveled the world and I have to say the Jefferson is one of the most lovely and comfortable hotels we have stayed in. The service was exceptional and friendly, including a complimentary car service which took us to and from the Art Museum. The main dining room, Lamaire, is wonderful, great food and service. We will go back the next time we're in the area!

Magnificent Belle Epoque Hotel

Posted Jun 10, 2011
Before one even enters the grand lobby of the Jefferson one is struck by the entrance, which sports fluted white columns and a bronze statue of the last alligator to live inside the hotel lobby (named 'Pompey', he died in 1948). Once inside there are more columns and a Belle Epoque atrium topped with a large medallion of Tiffany glass. One could imagine latter day Scarlett O'Haras flirting beneath it. The hotel has brought itself up-to-date with a gym, an indoor swimming pool, an informal grill and free internet access. The hotel also has excellent room service and a most helpful concierge. It is centrally located and offers a complementary shuttle service within a three-mile range. I would definitely recommend this hotel just to see the lobby.

Very memorable

We stayed at The Jefferson Hotel on April 30. We were upgraded to a Deluxe room at no cost. The hotel is one of the best I've ever stayed. Our room was so nice and quiet. Everything was super clean and the location was perfect. Walking distance to VCU and many other famous landmarks. Overall I highly recommend this hotel.

everything i expected and more

The Jefferson is an exceptional hotel and lived up to everything we had heard about the place. Once we checked in there wasn't a moment when we weren't greated by name through the hotel. The staff was outstanding. We dined there at lunch and at breakfast.......lunch was very good and breakfast was great.

The hotel is beautiful, nicely furnished and well decorated. We enjoyed high tea in the lobby on Sunday afternoon, drinks in the bars, and the convenience of the location for visiting our daughter who attends the VCU Brandcenter. We were disappointed to only have two bath towels for three people the first morning. The next day we had enough towels but the hot water was shut off to repair a pipe. I suppose repairs are to be expected in such an old hotel. We would stay there again, imagining Scarlett O'Hara descending the grand staircase to meet Rhett.
