Spotlight On: The Martha Jefferson Suite at The Jefferson Hotel in Washington DC

August 7, 2013
By: Five Star Alliance

A top to bottom renovation in 2009 transformed this 99-room Beaux Arts gem into Washington's best small luxury hotel. The Jefferson Hotel in Washington, DC is just blocks from the White House and within walking distance of museums, monuments and embassies, the dining and nightlife of Georgetown and Penn Quarter, the downtown business district, and Dupont Circle. Both European and distinctly Washingtonian in style, it is rich in historical details and Jeffersonian influences, including the Martha Jefferson Suite.

This top-floor suite (#812) at The Jefferson Hotel in Washington, DC affords romance with city and skylight views accented by three Juliet balconies which open to allow an abundance of fresh air into the suite. Also known as the Bridal Suite, pale, Tiffany-inspired blue accents the suite's soft palette of creams and grays, which is carried throughout its living room (featuring a gas fireplace), intimate dining room for two or four, and bedroom with a canopied King bed.

The Martha Jefferson Suite's bathroom features a soaking tub for two and intricate mosaic tiling. An additional powder room is found in the suite and a second king bedroom can be connected to create a two-bedroom luxury accommodation.
