4/5 Good

  • Liked: Cleanliness, amenities, property conditions & facilities

Bell hops and front desk staff were incredibly friendly. The facilities are lovely (although the bathroom area could use more shelving in order to set toiletries) and the gym is first rate. The major downside was in the restaurant. The service was incredibly slow and not intuitive. They still didn't have a brunch/lunch menu at the time of our stay (2 weeks post opening) when we finally were able to sit down around 2:30pm on a Saturday. That was disappointing as a nice salad or sandwiches would have been welcome among those in our party.

Riggs is a newly renovated hotel in the old Riggs National Bank building at 9th and F, Great location, nice touches inside - bank vault inspired minibar/safe, bedside editions of Keats and Plath (perfect for the bipolar guest), excellent restaurant downstairs. Staff was very helpful and professional. My new "go to" property in DC.

Enjoyed my stay

Great hotel! Service all around was incredible. The guys at the door (may not be “doormen”, but over 3 days, I only saw 2 doormen who helped open heavy doors for travelers. If the guys standing at the door are not official doormen, they should t be there as they do not help. For a hotel of this stature, it gives a bad impression when you are struggling to open the heavy door with luggage, an umbrella and 3 of them are just standing there talking with no interest in assisting. Just a point, but staff everywhere else went above and beyond! Riggs cafe service was amazing, ate there all 3 nights (enjoyed the service more than the food, but it was good enough to keep me coming back). Only other critique is to have irons available in the room. By the time I realized, there wasn’t one, i was late and didn’t have time to call down for one to be delivered...but overall - this is my new fave hotel in DC!

The hotel was fantastic. The staff at the Riggs was exceptional. A lot of time had to be invested bringing on staff that shared such a high commitment to making guests feel like family. Makia checked us in and throughout our stay she made sure our needs were addressed. She truly understands how to make guests know how important they are! Thanks to the Riggs for hiring staff that are committed to creating a great stay!
