Excellent accommodations in a perfect location.
Our stay was perfect. The location is central to so many sites, and great shopping, restaurants, etc. The staff was excellent and the room was spacious, clean and the decor was simple but lovely.

Exceptional 10.0
Despite the election results and streets closed all around, I finally made it to the front door. Front desk staff was very helpful and courteous with our very late arrival. Room service staff was quick and accommodating. The room could not have been nicer-bedding, amenities, furnishings. Beautiful.

Exceptional 10.0
It was amazing! Five stay place for very cheap- excellent service and great location! Very safe and clean, great for dog owners, and delicious food on location (rooftop bar was my favorite- they had glass panes separating and heat lamps so felt so safe!

Surprising gem right that hits all the right notes
Beautiful property! It hadn’t been on my radar at all but the upside right now (if one can consider it an upside with the impact of Covid19 on the hospital industry) of starting to travel again for my job is the opportunity to check out some of the five star hotels that would’ve previously been out of my budget range. The newly renovated property is beautifully designed and full of aesthetic surprises. The service is top notch but not heavy-handed and I enjoyed my stay enough that I’m returning next week! I especially like the qr code room service and dining menus. What a refreshing treat to have a nice dinner indoors in my hotel with a full menu - something i took for granted not long ago.

Great Place to Stay
The hotel was very nice and clean. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful. One suggestion would be to have coffee available for the guest.

Best Boutique hotel in DC
Riggs Hotel is a brand new Hotel in Washington DC. It was truly one of a kind stay. We stayed in the First Lady suite, which is different from the other 3 First Lady suites. Room was very spacious and comfortble. The bathroom was big and super clean. Amazing rooftop views and a great cafe for lunch. Over all enjoyed my stay. Will be back soon.
