The Jefferson Washington, D.C.

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.

The elegant ambience of The Jefferson’s hotel rooms and suites evokes the hotel namesake’s cherished years in Paris as well as his time at Monticello. Extraordinary attention to detail conveys the sense that one is staying in a private residence. Here, you might find a book on Monticello on your side table, or perhaps a vintage copy of Goode’s Best Addresses.

The Jefferson is one of Washington’s must-visit dining destinations. Plume, award-winning restaurant, has been recognized with the highest Zagat rating in Washington, D.C., and the wine program has received Wine Spectator’s Best Of Award of Excellence. Quill, the hotel’s creative cocktail bar and lounge, offers classic grill and lighter fare. For breakfast, lunch, brunch and afternoon tea, enjoy The Greenhouse, where seasonal menus are inspired by the harvest from Jefferson’s kitchen gardens at Monticello.

This intimate setting caters to only a fortunate few at a time, with each visit custom-crafted to your own desires. The Petite's enticing menu offers massages, facials and body treatments as well as a specialized vinotherapy that reflects Thomas Jefferson's passion for wine.
