Washington DC, USA
You can’t stay at the White House – but this five star hotel comes pretty close. And we’re not just talking about its location near DC’s most famous ‘house’. The Jefferson Hotel also has a distinctly ‘Presidential’ air about it. Inspired by the beloved plantation of the third US President, and hotel’s namesake, everything from your guestroom’s drapes, to the ingredients in Petite Spa’s treatments, to the epicurean delights at its Michelin-starred Plume restaurant, has a nod to Thomas Jefferson. Even the hotel’s pet pooch is named after his plantation, ‘Monticello’. Inside its beautiful Beaux Arts wrapping, mod cons like complimentary WiFi mingle with a vast collection of antiques, artworks, and historic documents signed by Jefferson. But the pièce de résistance is the original 1923 skylight, flooding light into The Greenhouse, one of the hotel’s three exclusive dining venues.
