This is a step above the kind of hotel I normally get to stay at. Very nice room, very comfortable. Everything taken care of. Great service. I wish the wifi was free and I wish they had free complimentary breakfast, but I guess one can't have everything in this world :-) The location is really great, right by the metro,... More

Incredibly exquisite hotel in the heart of the city with easy access to the mall, metro, pentagon, and everything DC has to offer. Includes all the bells and whistles of a luxury hotel, but with a matching price, so buckle your seatbelt, especially during the high season. Some exterior and interior construction going on during our stay, but its hard... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hotel in May 2014. It is relaxing with excellent service and in very close proximity to Washington DC.I would highly recommend this hotel. The hotel anticipates a guest's needs and goes out of its way to please.

I was expecting a lot from my first stay at a Ritz-Carlton hotel. Overall, this hotel was clearly below expectations on multiple fronts from service to decor. Service for example. I had to come back four times to the front desk before my room key would open the door and that I could connect to the wi-fi (name didn't match... More

I stayed here with my wife and two young children ages 5 and 3, and was very satisfied with my choice. We got a fantastic AAA rate. The location is great, it is literally adjacent to the Metro escalator at the Pentagon City station. This makes going anywhere in DC easy, and if you are flying into Reagan Airport, it... More

Very friendly staff at the Ritz Carlton and great room! We really enjoyed our stay and will come back if we are in the Arlington VA area again. The restaurant is good. The only disappointment was that there is no spa.

We stayed here on June 25 and 26, 2015 with the family; The hotel is very conveniently located in Pentagon City, on top of the metro Yellow Line (YL) and 3 stops away from down town DC. We opted for the club level (17th and 18th floor) which came with the complimentary Ritz Carlton Club Access (18th floor) with breakfast,... More

Each stay at the Ritz-Carlton gives me another reason why this hotel is my favorite places to stay in D.C. The beds are super comfortable, the location is superb (right off of the Blue Line), and the noticeable extra friendly staff will make your stay perfect and you will want to return too! The only down side is the thin... More

You can learn everything you need about a hotel just by observing the people who work there. Grumpy staff = run-down place. This Ritz has the most genuinely happy and friendly family of workers I ever met, starting from the bottom. These folk are happy from the inside and it shows on the outside....not just in the impeccable service, the... More

Enjoyed a great stay of some 10 nights for a business event in the region. The overall experience was great! We found the rooms to be well proportioned, the bathroom that we had enjoyed a separate shower and soaking tub and was beautifully decorated. One can access Fashion Square Mall through the hotel and the outlet stores such as Nordstrom... More
