Riggs Washington DC

Riggs Washington DC sits in the former home of Washington D.C.’s Riggs National Bank. Located in the capital’s Penn Quarter neighborhood, the 121,000 square foot property features 181 residential guest rooms and suites, an expansive restaurant and café, a subterranean cocktail bar, and rooftop event space. Riggs Washington DC is the first U.S. hotel from international hospitality company Lore Group – behind the iconic and award-winning Pulitzer Amsterdam and Sea Containers London.

Built in 1891, the landmarked building holds a place on the National Register of Historic Places and is one of the last few Richardsonian Romanesque Revival-styled builds still standing in the city. The property originally housed the Washington Loan & Trust Company before being acquired by Riggs National Bank in 1954. Known as the “Bank of Presidents” throughout the early 20th century, twenty-three U.S Presidents banked at Riggs, which was then advertised as the most important bank in the most important city in the world.
