Towering faux marble columns, magnificent stained glass, a marble Grand Staircase and a fine Carrara marble statue of Thomas Jefferson reflect yesteryear's attention to design detail.

    Perfect one night stay

    We checked in with ease and our room was magnificent! The staff was so friendly to both us and our dog Rugby - he had a blast and we did too. Even though it was expensive it was worth every penny.

    Simply Gorgeous!

    Ava our Shih Tzu had a fantastic time! She was greeted with treats and a poop bag and felt so welcomed. Everyone was lovely to her (and us humans!). It's going to be hard for her to stay anywhere but at a 5-star hotel (me too!). We can't wait to go back!

    Great Customer Service

    Besides from being a cool historic hotel with beautiful guest rooms, I was most impressed by how helpful and friendly the staff were. We were traveling with a senior dog and their helpfulness made our stay more enjoyable for sure.

    Worth the spoiling

    The people at The Jefferson know how to treat you and your puppies well. It is so nice to feel welcome and to feel they are happy to see your puppy! Everyone was so kind. Only issue was finding a good place to walk.

    Beautiful Hotel!

    We had a great stay at the Jefferson! We were driving through Richmond on a long drive and I was very happy to have found the hotel on BringFido.com. The glowing reviews were spot on! The hotel is gorgeous, the rooms are very spacious, and our large Black Lab was treated like royalty.

    One Pampered Pooch

    Every time we stay at The Jefferson we remark on how incredibly and attentive the service is. Not only do they treat humans with white glove attention but our Declan gets all the best attention he desires. Treats and scented poopy bags at check-in and 5-star canine friendly accommodations.

    Best 5 star pet friendly hotel.

    What a fabulous hotel and truly pet friendly! The staff was warm and friendly. Rooms were spacious and beautiful. Food from room service was fantastic. Great location in Richmond.

    Beautiful

    The hotel is beautiful. The restaurants are great. The pool is great. The gym is good for a hotel gym. Dog walking area is across the street. Many helpful staff around the hotel. Everyone fussed over our dogs and we had a very comfortable stay.

    I Want To Go Back!!!

    I had some medical procedures that would take an entire day.
    I do not drive in the city, because I have bad depth perception, so my husband drove me in to Richmond, and wherever my husband and I go, our not-so-little Italian Greyhound/Chihuahua mix Biscuit goes as well. That limited my options severely. I also needed a place that provided shuttle service to the hospital so that my husband could relax and only worry about Biscuit. This place fit the bill, even with the bill (you know the one that you pay at check-out). We stayed in (I believe) a grand premier king room, and it was fantastic! The mattress was luxuriously soft, Mama Bear would approve (from Goldilocks and the three bears). We were the first guests to sleep in this particular room since it was renovated! I felt so spoiled! The first night that we spent (we had 2 nights there), the air conditioning system was not working. When I called the following morning, the concierge had a very friendly and knowledgeable man come up and fix it. Also, without our asking, our first night was fully refunded! All over the smallest discomfort! I can't list the ways in which this hotel was beyond any that I had ever stayed in before - you must experience the magic yourself! It's grand, inviting... they make you feel like you are at home, and that you are a billionaire! You simply must stay here if you are looking to get a good tour of Richmond! The shuttle driver is knowledgeable and so is the concierge, and any questions that you want to ask them, they will answer it and make your stay just that much more valuable!
