Jeffersonian Influences at our Hotel
Thomas Jefferson – epicurean, intellectual, farmer and inventor – has inspired every aspect of The Jefferson, Washington, DC, permeating the hotel’s design and culture. The best of Jefferson is showcased throughout our hotel, from the literal to the evocative, in original documents and Jeffersonian motifs showcased throughout, as well as our assortment of top restaurants.
- Guest accommodations feature draperies fashioned from three original toile patterns inspired by the textiles and artifacts Jefferson brought back from Paris to enhance his beloved Monticello – which also inspired the fragrance of our customized bathroom amenities.
- Plume, offering culinary creations from Chef Chris Jakubiec inspired by Monticello's gardens to blend European tradition with American innovation.
