I visited Washington DC and stayed at the newly opened Riggs Hotel. It has been completely renovated and designed to bring out features of its historic past as a bank.
The check-in desk looks like old-fashioned tellers. The image of the Roman goddess of money, “Juno Moneta” is highlighted in the lobby and in the hotel rooms, which I found to be a creative touch.
The service and food in Cafe Riggs were superb! (Be sure to order the brussell sprouts!)
We especially enjoyed our time spent in the Silver Lyan, the cozy chic lounge built in the bank’s vault in the basement. This lounge is the newest project the world famous Mr Lyan, who has created award winning bars in London and Amsterdam. The cocktails are works of art and the bartenders ( Look for Britt) are magicians!
I hear they will open a rooftop space for special events. What a view that will be!More
