Overview

When Charles Dana Gibson and Irene Langhorne--better known as the Gibson Girl--hosted their engagement party on Halloween 1895, little did they know that their nuptial celebration would be the first in a long legacy of events at Richmond’s most revered hotel, The Jefferson. It opened that All Hollow’s Eve over 100 years ago, and from that moment it was a sight to behold.

The facade blends Beaux Arts and Renaissance Revival architectural styles--an eclectic mix of Spanish Revival, Italianate, Palladian, and Classical Revival. Walk inside and a life-sized Carrara marble statue of Thomas Jefferson, created by famed sculptor Edward V. Valentine, stands in the lobby, flanked by faux marble columns, a Tiffany stained-glass skylight, and a grand staircase rumored to have been the inspiration for the staircase in Gone With the Wind.

Fish and alligators once swam in the ponds in Palm Court, but today’s hotel does not rely on the unusual to attract its clientele. Each of the 181 newly constructed guestrooms and suites features a luxurious marble bath with soaking tub. The rooms have a residential feel with luxurious linens and furnishings, alongside conveniences like a dressing area and a Nespresso coffee maker. A full-service health club with indoor pool is on-site, and the Jefferson Hotel also boasts one of Richmond’s finest restaurants, Lemaire.

The list of celebrities and notable guests that have visited here is extensive, including 13 U.S. Presidents. But guests need not be political or Hollywood royalty to enjoy all that this iconic Richmond landmark has to offer.

The Jefferson Hotel, a member of Historic Hotels Worldwide since 1989, dates back to 1895.

Fun Fact Alligators lived in marble ponds surrounding the Thomas Jefferson statue in the Palm Court lobby until 1948.
