#3 of 153 hotels in Washington DC
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!

We had a family trip to Washington DC and the Williamsburg area. Our stay at the Riggs was amazing. The facility was beautiful. The location was excellent. The staff was wonderful. Our group included grandchildren and elderly grandparents. The needs of all the age groups were not only met, but surpassed our expectations. We would definitely stay there again.

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!

We spent a week at the hotel with our grandsons. The location was ideal for our DC sightseeing trip. The rooms, hotel staff and restaurant service were all impeccable. The food at Cafe Riggs was excellent and the ambience is lovely. Our grandsons also especially enjoyed the gym, which was substantially nicer than your average hotel gym. Thank you for a great week!

This hotel was perfect - especially for its proximity to museums, monuments, etc. The staff was amazing and, while still under covid protocols, took great care and even texted us to see if we needed anything during our stay. The room was a standard size, bed was comfortable and amenities were great. We loved the architectural features especially in the lobby and bar/restaurant areas. We also had an amazing experience at the main bar where a young gentleman took great care of us and certainly knew his stuff when it comes to craft cocktails! Sadly the rooftop and basement areas were still closed but we hope to visit those in the future. Would highly recommend the Riggs!
