About Riggs Washington DC

Riggs Washington DC is a historic wedding venue located in Washington DC. Constructed in 1891, this elegant hotel space was originally home to the Washington Loan & Trust Company. In 1954 it became Riggs National Bank, known as the “Bank of Presidents”. Now, it serves as a stunning hotel and special event venue and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The hotel is positioned perfectly in Penn Quarter and walking distance to the National Mall, Art Galleries, and other landmarks to provide additional things to do while your guests are in town. Riggs is family-friendly and pet-friendly with amenities to accommodate both.
