A hotel opens in DC’s 1891 Riggs Bank building

Lore Group has transformed Penn Quarter’s landmark Riggs Bank building into the elegant Riggs Washington DC. Creative director Jacu Strauss preserved its historic architecture, including the barrel-vaulted lobby, in his sweeping redesign. The hotel’s 181 rooms and suites feature Baroque-inspired wall covering and headboards. Its brasserie-style Café Riggs boasts a bar anchored by the bank’s original columns and detailed stonework. Silver Lyan, a subterranean cocktail bar, also beckons. Starting rates from $329. 900 F Street, NW; 202-638-4600. riggsdc.com
