Everything about this Washington,D.C. landmark exudes attention to detail, from the beautifully preserved historic documents and enviable collections of original art to the exquisite chocolates in your room. Just blocks from the White House, it has been the favoured haunt for diplomats and discerning travellers since 1923, its uniquely decorated suites reflecting aspects of Thomas Jefferson’s passion for classical architecture, sculpture and bird life. A number of them feature deep soaking tubs fashioned from the finest European hand-cut stone and marble. Plume, the hotel’s Michelin starred restaurant, showcases superb French cuisine, bolstered by a wine list comprising over 1,300 labels and incorporating the country’s largest Madeira collection, while Quill is the hideaway for upscale cocktails to the sound of a resident pianist. In the spa, vinotherapy rituals recall Thomas Jefferson’s enduring passion for wine.

Due to the warm and pleasant weather, the busy spring and late autumn periods are considered the best times to visit Washington D.C.. Summer tends to be hot and humid, whilst winter can vary from unusually mild days to the possibility of snow; visitors during these months can benefit from quieter crowds at the city's museums. The famous cherry blossom season is an incredibly popular time to visit, which usually lasts for 2 weeks from late March to early April.
