Staying at The Jefferson Hotel – Richmond, VA

This past weekend I was invited to stay at The Jefferson Hotel for my weekend getaway to Richmond, Virginia.

The Hotel

The Jefferson Hotel is a five-star hotel that has received several awards and recognitions including the prestigious AAA’s Five Diamond rating. As soon as we pulled up, I understood why this place receives so much hype.
I was lucky enough to book my trip in time to still see the beautiful Christmas decorations the hotel displays, including the life size gingerbread house, nutcrackers, and Christmas tree. Visitors and Richmond locals stop in for the afternoon tea, dinner at Lemaire or the famous Sunday Champagne brunch.
We made sure to pack our swimsuits and work out gear as the hotel offers an onsite spa, health facility and indoor heated pool.

The Rooms

The room was amazing and we were even greeted with a bottle of wine and a cheese plate upon arrival. Each room is luxurious and inviting with a super comfortable king-sized bed, cozy robes and slippers, Nespresso machine, water bottles, TV, etc. You can tell the hotel looks at the details as the room keys come in a little book containing information about the hotel and area. However, the highlight of the room is the bathroom. The marble bathrooms are huge with double sinks, a large shower and separate full bathtub. I cannot forget to mention the mirror has a built-in TV!

Dining

The Jefferson Hotel has an onsite restaurant, Lemaire, and their bar is open late so you can stop in and have a cocktail anytime. The menu is also available for room service. We tried the Jumbo Scallops with shrimp and bacon as well as the baked macaroni and cheese and both were to die for.

Activities

The concierge provided us with a list of things to do in Richmond including the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts and brewery trail, but unfortunately the weather was way too cold to partake in this. The hotel offers a shuttle to and from all the Richmond museums, which makes getting around very easy.
Whatever time of year for your visit to Richmond, be sure to check out The Jefferson Hotel
