Travellers' Choice
Newly opened, Riggs Washington DC, has received a Four-Diamond recognition, has been rated "Top 5 Restaurants and Bars in the World", and "Top New Hotels in the World" by Conde Nast Traveler all within our opening year. The team at Riggs welcomes you to a refreshingly personable guest experience with world-class dining, amenities, and safety and sanitation measures to ensure the utmost levels of cleanliness. The hotel is located on the iconic corner of 9th and F Street in the former “Bank of Presidents" and is re-imagined for the modern sophisticated traveler in the city’s thriving Penn Quarter. The property features 181 guest rooms and suites – each reminiscent of a private safety deposit box, paying homage to the building’s legacy – Cafe Riggs, our all-occasion European brasserie-inspired cafe and lounge that celebrates its traditional European influences, offering comforting fare, re-imagined favorites, and an expansive plant-based menu – including delights such as the caviar grilled cheese. Rooftop at Riggs provides a sophisticated rooftop bar terrace where views of Penn Quarter are complemented by a bright and breezy menu of Mediterranean inspired aperitifs. Riggs’ lower level is home to Silver Lyan, a subterranean cocktail bar by the internationally acclaimed bartender and Lore Group’s Global Bar Innovator Ryan Chetiyawardana (aka “Mr. Lyan”). *Silver Lyan and Rooftop at Riggs are temporarily closed*. The hotel also offers pet-friendly amenities, custom complimentary city bikes, and a state-of-the-art fitness center. We look forward to welcoming you to Riggs DC!

It’s a delight to see the historic Riggs banks transformed into an elegant and comfortable hotel. I loved every detail. And Cafe Riggs is exquisite. The pastries are especially remarkable. Get a cardamom bun!!!

Hotel's Favourite
What a delightful evening we had! From the moment we stepped into the building looking like quite homeless (or perhaps disheveled) civilians we received nothing but the highest level of service! From the instant friendly smiles (or crinkled eyes behind masks) to the warmth and intimacy of every single staffer that we encountered over various shifts, we truly felt as if we’ve come home every time we step foot inside (and we LIVE here in DC!). The room was absolutely stunning! We were in the Ida McKinley First Lady Suite which was beautifully pink all over. There truly was no detail left behind. From the fresh flowers to the hand sanitizing wipes by the bed to the ringtone of the old phone. Absolutely brilliant! Could not have possibly been more impressed. We enjoyed the well stocked mini bar but made sure to have a delectable duck confit dinner. We loved the plush bed and we couldn’t help ourselves, we had to order our breakfast in bed and it came with some wonderful thick cut bacon. We had a chance to make it down to the gym which was also quite nice with the most luxurious boxing bag we've ever seen which was an amusing surprise. We had a wonderful time and we absolutely cannot wait to return. It felt swell to be outside of our own home, in a different part of the city and in such luxury!

Dear Derek, Our First Lady suites are always such breath takers. I'm so glad you were able to experience the Louisa Adams variant. You'll have to aim for one of the others on a future visit! With our eclectic menus and generous service (and generous pouring at Silver Lyan!), we cannot wait to welcome you back again soon. Yours in hospitality, Maximillian Sanson Director of Front Office

I stopped reviewing places years ago, but my stay at the Riggs required me to reboot my Tripadvisor account! I've stayed at many 5 star hotels in the U.S. and in other Countries, but as far as a kind and courteous staff goes, Riggs sits atop the mountain at #1. From the time we pulled up until the time we left, every employee we encountered was so friendly with nothing but nice things to say. They were so willing to help.....if you had a question or needed anything, the person you asked handled the problem....they didn't call anybody else or refer you to anyone else. Other hotels would be wise to copy whatever training program Riggs is using. This was my first trip to D.C., won't be my last and staying anywhere other than Riggs isn't an option for me. Capital one is basically a block away, and the proximity to all the best restaurants and things you go to D.C. to see can't be beat I don't think. Thank you Riggs staff. See you again whenever I find myself back that way.
