Welcome to The Jefferson, Washington DC’s second most prestigious address. With an established reputation as Washington, DC’s most discerning hotel, just blocks from the White House and historic DC landmarks, The Jefferson is a 95-room luxury boutique hotel that exemplifies all that its namesake held dear including an intricately thought-out design, twenty three elegantly appointed suites, the most modern amenities including a petite spa, experiential dining in the award winning Plume and Quill, and, of course, exceptional personalized service.
Enjoying a well-earned reputation as one of the best small boutique hotels in Washington, DC, The Jefferson has presided over the corner of 16th and M Streets since 1923, when this historic Beaux Arts design building first opened as luxury apartments. In 1955, the property was transformed into a boutique hotel to accommodate the world’s elite travelers and Washington DC’s most important visitors.
Rich in historical details, The Jefferson is both European and Washingtonian in style, with tributes to Thomas Jefferson and his beloved Monticello throughout. New discoveries unfold at every turn: private nooks, original Thomas Jefferson-signed documents, a Book Room filled with historic leather-bound volumes on Jefferson’s favorite subjects, and signed editions from contemporary authors who have been among the distinguished guests of this boutique downtown Washington, DC hotel.
