Wonderful Stay

by dbruzer

We stayed at the Jefferson to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary. We had a wonderful time. We had booked a deluxe room over the premium but I'm not sure what the difference was other than the room was more expensive. I asked at the front desk and they told me it was about location in the hotel and sometimes having a bath. Our room was relatively small and the bathroom overall was small, but with a very large walk-in shower, no bath. The lobby is also quite small albeit beautifully decorated. The bars and restaurants are tucked away so you have to find them. But otherwise, we loved our stay at the hotel. Our room was exquisite - clean, comfortable, and very nicely decorated. The hotel has very nice amenities, free hot apple cider in the lobby, an ipad for music and ordering room service in your room, complimentary newspaper of your choice delivered to the room, complimentary water was in a beautiful bottle and they left us yummy shortbread cookies each day. The service is, of course, top notch. We did eat breakfast there. I was a bit disappointed about that. It was quite expensive and the food and service were just mediocre. The location was perfect for us, central to everything we wanted to see.

Superb experience!!!

This was hands down the most elegant hotel! They thought of everything from the amazingly comfortable room with great decor to the plush robes and slippers, a top of the line hair blower, bath salts, large size toiletries that smelled wonderful, great mini bar selection, espresso maker, and even a t.v. In the bathroom mirror! Food and service was top notch too! Comfort and beauty at every turn. We can’t wait to return! Would give them 100 stars if I could!!!
