The Jefferson prides itself on providing unparalleled personal service. From furnishings, familiarity, and friendliness, the Jefferson gives an immersive customized experience. The Jefferson Apartments opened in 1923 just four blocks away from the White House. The Beaux-Arts design by architect Jules Henri de Sibour was the first building erected on 16th St. between Lafayette Square and Scott Circle. The apartments were converted to a hotel in 1955 and quickly caught the attention of discerning travelers.
To bring this landmark into the 21st century, the hotel underwent a full-scale renovation to infuse modern-day elegance and convenience. Combining the talents of the world’s finest architectural, design, and construction firms, the final product is both European and Washingtonian, featuring the rich, historical influences of the hotel’s namesake, Thomas Jefferson. The Jefferson has a unique collection of antique furnishings, curated art, an impressive book collection, and nine framed documents bearing the signature of Thomas Jefferson. The President's penchant for gracious hospitality, fine dining, exceptional wine, literature, and travel are expressed throughout the property.
When it comes to dining, The Jefferson features three award-winning restaurants serving the intimate to the unforgettable. Michelin-starred restaurant, Plume, serves impeccable cuisine using seasonal ingredients. For eclectic fare, enjoy breakfast, brunch, or lunch under an impressive skylight at The Greenhouse. Relax with creative cocktails and contemporary comfort food at Quill.
