A Boutique Hotel Designed After Thomas Jefferson
It is Thomas Jefferson – epicurean, intellectual, farmer, and inventor – that has so inspired his namesake hotel, The Jefferson, Washington, DC, permeating every aspect of its design and culture. From the literal to the evocative, original documents signed by Jefferson on display in the lobby and the Book Room inspired by Jefferson's own Book Room at Monticello are representative of the Jeffersonian touches throughout. While Thomas Jefferson’s assessment of Washington, DC may have held true for generations, in more recent times the city has emerged as a vibrant cultural center offering rich rewards for visitors. The Jefferson’s enviable location, straddling the city’s political and social scenes at the corner of 16th and M Streets, Northwest, puts you – the guest – in the center of it all. The White House lies just four blocks to the south of The Jefferson, and just beyond it the National Mall, with its world-famous monuments, museums, and reflecting pools.
