SUMMER AT THE JEFFERSON PACKAGE

Celebrating the path best traveled

 

RICHMOND, VA (April 18, 2018): The Jefferson Hotel has been hosting visitors to the Richmond Region since 1895. During those decades, the hotel has witnessed everything from historical moments to questionable fashion trends. 

With those years of experience comes a degree of wisdom and valuable lessons learned about celebrating the differences between living and living well. 

This summer The Jefferson will be embarking on a virtual journey to share this unique perspective from the path best traveled.

Through social media, the hotel’s website and while visiting the hotel, guests can join the hotel on this trajectory as they experience The Jefferson firsthand while vacationing with family, on a business trip, reconnecting with friends or celebrating with a significant other.  Each idea will be presented in a fashion reminiscent of a calling card, communicating The Jefferson’s cultured sensibility in an artistic manner.           

“We look forward to giving a voice to The Jefferson that exemplifies our long-standing commitment to providing exceptional experiences for our guests.  After almost a century and a quarter, we think the hotel has a lot to say,” says Managing Director Joseph Longo.

Guests are invited to experience the path best traveled by booking The Jefferson’s annual Summer at The Jefferson package.  This summer’s offer includes a recently-renovated Grand Premier room, complimentary valet parking ($20 value) and a $50 Jefferson Hotel gift card to be used for exceptional dining within the hotel or shopping in the hotel’s curated gift shops.  Rate is $295 per room, per night.  Package is valid June 17 through September 9, 2018.

Reservations can be made by calling 800-424-8014 or on-line at www.jeffersonhotel.com/packages. Taxes are not included in the price.  Offer is subject to availability and advance reservations are required.  Gift card may not be applied towards room rate and fees.

THE JEFFERSON HOTEL COMPLETES RECONSTRUCTION

RICHMOND, VA (April 5, 2017): In March 2013 The Jefferson Hotel began a 3-phase reconstruction project. The hotel's 262 guest rooms have been quietly rebuilt into 181 spacious new rooms, including 15 suites. The enlarged floorplans feature entry foyers, dressing areas and luxurious new marbled baths including soaking tubs, walk-in showers and television screens in the vanity mirrors.

Each of the hotel’s magnificent public spaces has received a refresh, including new furnishings in the Rotunda and Palm Court lobbies that convey the residential feel of the guest rooms. The century-old Rotunda ceiling has been fully restored to preserve it for generations to come.

Lemaire, the hotel’s celebrated dinner service restaurant and lounge, received new furnishings. The signature ballroom spaces - Grand Ballroom, Empire Room and Flemish Room – have been redecorated with fresh, new color palates and draperies along with new LED lighting and carpeting.

This comprehensive renovation has left the historic property nearly brand new while the hotel’s legendary service has remained unwavering. The hotel has again been recognized as both a AAA Five Diamond and Forbes Five Star award winner for 2017, making The Jefferson Hotel 1 of just 51 hotels in the United States to simultaneously hold these two prestigious designations.

“The hotel has long been known for its breathtaking public spaces, exceptional service and beautiful décor. This project has allowed us to elevate an already unique travel experience to the next level of luxury,” says Joseph Longo, Managing Director.
