The Jefferson, Washington, DC Reopens August 31

By Pardhasaradhi Gonuguntla

Totally transformed, The Jefferson will reappear on the Washington hotel scene August 31, 2009. This historic 99-room Beaux Arts gem, which presides over the corner of 16th & M Streets, N.W., is poised to turn heads following a top-to-bottom renovation that has created Washington’s finest small hotel. Here are just a few ways The Jefferson’s return promises to invigorate the D.C. hospitality scene:

1. An inspired design by ForrestPerkins, steeped in 18th Century American details – from the stylish guest accommodations (including 20 salon suites) that evoke Jefferson’s years in Paris, to a Private Cellar dining room that celebrates the founding father’s passion for wine, to a spa influenced by the garden at Monticello.

2. The introduction of Washington’s newest “power duo”: the restaurant Plume, where Executive Chef Damon Gordon makes his D.C. debut, and Quill, a luxurious piano lounge where inventive cocktails take center stage.

3. A service ethos like no other: the guest experience will be intuitive, flawless and highly personalized, reminiscent of a stay at a friend’s grand estate.

4. The reemergence of a magnificent 1923 vaulted skylight in The Greenhouse (The Jefferson’s daytime dining setting).

5. Three unique specialty suites, debuting Fall 2009, including the handsome Thomas Jefferson and intimate Martha Jefferson Suites, plus the mid-Atlantic’s only Spa Suite.

6. Intimate, refined meeting rooms, parlor-like spaces and private nooks – designed for high-powered meetings, exclusive social gatherings, and discreet tête-à-têtes – that allow every group to enjoy the detailed attention of The Jefferson’s skilled staff.
