Wi-Fi and wired Internet access is complimentary in guest rooms and public spaces. After phoning the front desk for the password, I had no trouble accessing the in-room Wi-Fi. A small writing desk was paired with a non-ergonomic yet comfortable chair.

The Jefferson features three meeting rooms, several parlor spaces, and a boardroom. The Jefferson’s largest meeting and event space, The Gallatin Room, can accommodate up to 80 people. The lobby-level 24-hour business center offers printing, copying, faxing, and computer access, as well as notary public services.

The Jefferson also features a spa offering a variety of treatments inspired by Jefferson and the herb gardens of Monticello, a steam shower, and a 24-hour fitness room.


The Jefferson’s gem is its restaurant, Plume, which is, to put it mildly, a gastronomic wonderland and which we’ve reviewed separately.

Breakfast and lunch at Plume also draw D.C.’s power brokers, movers and shakers, and various social sets.

Private dining is available in The Wine Room, which is outfitted with a replica of the dumbwaiter designed by Jefferson that brings up bottles of select vintages from the hotel’s wine cellar. Adjacent to Plume, Quill lounge serves up cocktails and other libations.


The Jefferson is one of D.C.’s historic, iconic hotels, yet not one that is wedged complacently in the past. It’s luxurious, discreet, contemporary, and an impressive locus for conducting business, with a restaurant, Plume, that could very likely seal the deal. Even if you don’t stay at The Jefferson, put dinner at Plume on your must-do list.
