My husband and I are obsessed with nice hotels — probably because we’ve accidentally booked stays at some really nasty ones in the past. Like the time we booked a one-night stay at a chain hotel near the London airport and a bunch of ladybugs dive-bombed from the hallway ceiling and smacked me in the glasses as I screamed bloody murder. Or that time in Colorado when we needed a place to crash after driving all day in an attempt to make it to Arizona in a timely fashion — ’cause when is a cross-country road trip ever a good idea? That hotel, though. The towels and sheets were yellow, and I sat there attempting to solve the puzzle… were they supposed to be a shade of yellow or had they turned yellow after many years of use? Who knows, but I used Malcolm as a pillow and didn’t shower the next morning because drying off my body with a yellow threadbare towel wasn’t something I was interested in. So, we like nice hotels. Hotels with beds so plush you want to stay in all day and order room service, and hotels with white linens. You can bleach white linens and that’s good.
The Jefferson Hotel DC is one of those really nice hotels.
The Jefferson is a 95-room luxury boutique hotel located in downtown Washington, DC and the rooms are elegant and comfortably furnished. We had the chance to stay there a few months ago and if someone offered me the chance to reside there permanently, I’d take them up on that offer in a heartbeat — especially because of the award-winning restaurants and because of the custom treatments at the hotel spa. Yes, please.
But back to the rooms. The beds were wonderful and we loved the robes and slippers the hotel provided. The rooms were clean and the furniture made me happy because it was elegant and that’s exactly what hotels in Washington, DC should look like.
And the best part: they’re pet friendly! Dogs staying at The Jefferson receive their own dog beds, bowls, and treats, and owners will get information regarding nearby dog-walking routes and other pet friently places around the city. They even have their own dog mascot named Lord Monticello or Monti (cute, right?) and he’s been living at The Jefferson since January 2014 which I think is completely adorable. We thought about bringing Malcolm and Ollie to this pet friendly DC hotel; however, we didn’t want to embarrass ourselves since they’re evil and horribly behaved. Maybe next time… or after some extensive training.
Have you ever stayed at The Jefferson? You should!
