D.C.'s hotels aren't just for tourists. Many offer a welcoming place for locals to drink, dine and relax. Here are some of the most popular hotel hangouts in the District.
The Carlyle Hotel
1731 New Hampshire Ave. NW
When Michael Schlow opened The Riggsby inside The Carlyle in 2015, the Dupont Circle hotel flooded with Washingtonians, hungry for Schlow’s take on a classic spaghetti and steak type-of-joint. Two years later, the hotel’s restaurant stays packed. The bar is known for its selection of classic cocktails (negronis, Manhattans and side cars, to name a few); the pork chop landed on the Washington Post’s list of the 40 most essential D.C. restaurant dishes of 2016.
