Old is new again for the holidays at The Jefferson

Richmond, Va, is hot this fall, even as the temperatures start to cool. Come for the history, the sports, craft brews and music, but stay for the holiday celebrations and packages at The Jefferson.

Built in 1895, The Jefferson Hotel is located in the heart of downtown Richmond and is within minutes of the city’s most popular attractions, restaurants and shopping. It is a member of Preferred Hotels and Resort’s Legend Collection and a charter member of Historic Hotels of America. Guests of The Jefferson enjoy complimentary downtown transportation, fitness center and indoor pool access, high-speed internet access and evening turndown service. The Jefferson is also home to Lemaire Restaurant, TJ’s Restaurant, Afternoon Tea at The Jefferson and Richmond’s most famous Sunday Champagne Brunch.

The Jefferson is now offering some unique holiday packages to take you through 2017.

From "The Holidays at the Jefferson Package" to "The Bed and Breakfast Package" to those looking to indulge in a "Champagne Brunch."

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.

2017 was the Grand Re-Opening and now you can experience it this holiday season.
