The Jefferson: DC Luxury Hotel Honors America's Genius Third Prez

By December 31, 2012

Follow me on:


Thomas Jefferson would have approved of his namesake hotel near the White House.


Luxury Travel writer Eric Levin is partial to both Jeffersoniana and historic hotels.


And Eric was bowled over (in Revolutionary era argot, tenpinned) by this hotel.

The Jefferson is as tasteful as America's bon vivant third president.


It's elegantly done up in neoclassical Monticello style. And it boasts enlightened dining plus a Port wine collection to rival the polymath prez's own cave.

  • Take a look at the dignified rooms, acclaimed Plume restaurant, and high-society gym at The Jefferson in DC >>
