The Jefferson hotel in Washington has joined the Relais & Chateaux collection.

The 99-room hotel, which reopened in August after a two-year renovation, becomes the first Relais & Chateaux member in the nation’s capital.

The hotel, at 16th and M streets, is four blocks from the White House and is close to museums, embassies and other points of interest.
