        Ideal doe our purpose, of an overnight stay in Richmond. the concierge was very helpful and booked a restaurant for us, and organised the hotel shuttle - we weren't comfortable with the thought of walking in the locality. The driver of the shuttle was very friendly and informative

        The hotel was not worth the cost, and we were charged and additional cost - for something that we didn't have - refunded by the bank credit card - when I questioned it.

        Hotel had nice seating in the lobby. The bed linens were great. Big flat screen tv, late checkout, easily accessible parking.

        The minor details didnt impress me- one chocolate on the pillow instead of two, rap musci blaring in the gym, lack of water in the water cooler, slightly cramped room, small tub, no great views.

        The service at The Jefferson is the best I've ever experienced at any hotel anywhere in the world. Period. Without exception, everyone we met was friendly and courteous and went out of their way to be helpful. Besides the service being exceptionally good, the hotel itself is beautiful...truly in a class by itself.

        The staff was extremely friendly and attentive; the lobby was classy and luxurious.

        The walls were rather thin and we could hear the people in the next room.
