Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.
Learn more about our review moderation.

I picked The Riggs Hotel because of great reviews, a great location and it looked fantastic in all the photos. And who doesn’t like the idea of staying in a building that once was a bank? Of course, you never know until you check in… It turns out the hotel lived up to every wonderful thing that reviews and magazines awarded it. The restaurant is beautiful, the rooms are unique and lovely, the bar—in the one time vault—is great. The staff is friendly and accommodating beyond expectations. We will definitely stay there again the next time we visit Washington DC.

The Riggs is my new favorite hotel in Washington DC. I've stayed at the Ritz, Four Seasons, etc. and I must say I enjoyed my stay at the Riggs just as much if not more. Hospitality is very important to me and The Riggs exceeds. I can't wait to go back

Great for families, beautiful installations, well maintained rooms and common areas. Breakfast is outstanding served at the lobby bar - Cafe Riggs. The staff is very attentive and made us feel welcome.

Loved that the Riggs retained the original bank signage and the words "hotel" does not appear. The uninformed observer would think that people going in and not coming out for a considerable amount of time are communing with their money.

Beautiful rooms and fabulous staff. Bathroom was not as upscale as I would have expected. and the Cafe Riggs was disappointing. The Bar downstairs in the vault was spectacular! Just can't give a full 5 stars for this hotel.

Only 1 block from the arena, and a very nice hotel. Look very close at all the bank-themed touches, as this was a real bank HQ way back when. We always stay here when in town for a Caps game. Parking is a pain so go with valet parking.

This hotel is labeled as a 5-star property but overall functions as maybe a 3-star at best. The rooms are excellent and the food is fantastic. The service is lackluster, however. It took 90 minutes to get room service, even after a reminder phone call at the 45 min mark. Inaccurate estimates of times and just general overall confusion with the basic running of the place. There are plenty of other options in Penn Quarter.

Despite the renovation ongoing in the lobby, the hotel was clean, the staff was professional. the room was quiet, nicely appointed, and comfortable. My only complaint was the breakfast French Toast and sausage would have been over the top if it didn't take 1/2 hour to arrive ( with a half full café ) and was served cold. I would have sent it back except I needed to leave for a commitment. Would I go back to the Riggs? Yes.
