Best bar in DC. Oh and nothing beats their Caesar salad. The ultimate test of a hotel other than a concierge of course!

If you stay at the Jefferson, there is a good chance you will see someone famous (at least C-SPAN famous). The Jefferson's restaurant, Plume, and bar, Quill, offer visitors exceptional food, drink and service. High tea in the Greenhouse is not to be missed on the weekends.

One of DC’s ritziest hotels, the Jefferson Hotel also boasts a remarkable three in-house restaurants. For visitors willing to spare no expense, Plume is one of the city’s most over-the-top fine dining experiences, with an award-winning wine list. For a slightly less haughty dining experience, the restaurant’s cocktail bar Quill offers a classed-up (grill heavy) bar menu—with a whimsical menu of cocktails (including rotating specialties, like the Indiana Jones inspired ‘Chalice Cup’ (Beefeater gin, Lillet Rose, blood orangecello and lemon juice) and a sizeable selection of appetizers, entrees and salads (with a wide price range – most menu items $14-40). Finally, there’s The Greenhouse, the hotel’s elegant tea room specializing in breakfast, brunch, lunch – and of course, lavish afternoon teas.

One of the classic DC hotels. A lot of moving and shaking goes on here, particularly at the bar and restaurant on the ground floor. Very convenient to National Geographic Headquarters as well as the White House. An iconic DC venue.

This hotel is like lifestyles of the rich and famous meets a PBS documentary on American statesmen.

You won’t find a throng of people waiting behind velvet ropes to check in here. Soft-spoken attendants sit noiselessly behind small, ornate wooden desks adorned with fresh flowers, waiting to take care of you in a civilized manner.

Spaces are small and intimate – in fact, the elevators are so small that I recommend if you ride with others, you know them intimately beforehand because you definitely will when you are done.

In the Greenhouse, where you can get breakfast, lunch and afternoon tea on Sundays, you can enjoy the bright and airy atrium. It's like you’re outside, except without the bugs. The Plume is truly the home of high-powered lunches. You can eat in nooks with semi-circular couches and heavy drapes tied back with gold ropes. The Jefferson’s bar, the Quill, is very manly – a lot of wood and high-backed chairs.

I wish I could give 99 stars to this place. Amazing restaurants, fantastic little rooms and cubbies to sit and work during the day, beautiful guest rooms (no room is the same as another) with scrumptious duvets and crisp sheets. There was a TV in the bathroom mirror....you know, since I need to check my stock prices while I'm brushing my teeth!
