This Ritz doesn't have the Palatial Grandeur of many of its other properties, but when in DC and getting a Conference rate, it was quite a good deal. The rooms were comfortable and clean. The halls are like walking through a freezer (bring a sweater). Being on the Metro line and having a high end mall at your finger tips... More

I like to check into local Ritz Carlton's for a fun staycation with club access included. I have been to the Tysons location a few times and this was my first visit to the Pentagon City location. A friend of mine and I took the metro and hotel was located right across from the exit. This location is very convenient... More

This hotel is convenient (public transpiration just outside), beautiful, close to everything, staffed with helpful and friendly staff, and a wonderful choice for a large conference. Enjoyed the trip and hotel!

I visit DC annually to visit my father at Arlington National Cemetery. My wife and I have stayed in some great locations in DC itself, but for future trips and for our purposes, the Ritz/Pentagon will be our hotel of choice. We'll have to rely on weekend specials to access the hotel as the business week prices are exorbitant (major... More

We stayed at the Ritz Carlton for 5 days. The service from the hotel stay was excellent. We had breakfast at the in-house restaurant on most days. On three consecutive days we were served grapes (which we did not order) with fungus. We pointed this out on each day. On the last go around, we escalated the issue as we... More

The property itself is next to the Fashion Center at Pentagon City. Great location next to Nordstrom. The beds were comfortable and the shower was great. There were two things I found very odd. (1) The pool is only open from 6:30 - 9:30 am and 4:30-9:00 pm during the week. (2) The room service "All Day Menu" stops at... More

So, this Ritz-Carlton is a big rundown (as compared to other Ritzs), but my room was clean and the location was great. This hotel is right near the mall and the metro. If you get a good rate, this place is worth it.

This hotel had a nice government rate (you have to call the hotel directly when booking) so we opted to stay here because we love Ritz Carlton's and couldn't pass up a good deal. We were not disappointed. You definitely aren't in the middle of the action if you are a tourist but you have a very easy walk to... More

The Ritz Carlton Pentagon City was a great place to attend a conference. The location was right at the Pentagon City Metro stop and has direct access to the Pentagon City mall. The conference room worked out very well with really good chef inspired meals. The room was clean and the front door and lobby personnel were really attentive and... More

first the good points - the staff were attentive and friendly and often tried to anticipate needs. The room was well appointed (apart from the hairdrier that had a lead of about 18 inches!) and very clean. BUT the air conditioning was very cold - I'm a Brit so I thought it was just me but quite a few US... More
