3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 25, 2013 via mobile

we stayed in a two bedroom unit for our family of 5 and we were disappointed to find that the rooms were smaller than in any Residence Inn we've encountered. the kitchen was teeny tiny, and the desk was in one of the bedrooms instead of being in a separate living area. beyond that, the breakfast was nothing special, and ended very early, 9 a.m. on weekdays. every morning someone would come down around 920 and be surprised to find that breakfast was no longer available. in fact, everything was gone and put away by 9:05, so if you arrived just a few minutes late you're completely out of luck. the staff was nice and friendly, except for the lifeguard at swim pool. he spent most of each evening looking at his tablet computer instead of watching the children playing in the pool, looking up once in awhile only to admonish one of the kids, God for bed they did something that disturbed his tablet viewing.

The rooms at the Residence Inn Pentagon City are remarkable when you are a dazed DC tourist. The kitchenettes are spotless and the rooms are spacious. Staff at the front desk are remarkably able and courteous in this busy hotel. You can stay here with no car and use the Pentagon City metro to do anything, including taking a Metro right to the Reagan airport nearby. Pentagon City Mall is grand and there are good places to eat on Joyce. Particular recommendation is Saigon Saigon or the Lebanese Taverna. This is a concrete city but safe and a great place to hole up at night for dining and shopping when the monuments and free museums are closed. Parking garage is very safe and secure and the facilities are upgraded and fresh and clean.

Room Tip: Ask for a view towards the Pentagon if available.

Thank you for taking the time to share your experiences at the Residence Inn at Pentagon City. I agree that our location is next to it all, and yet very safe. You are correct that no car is necessary between our local hotel shuttle that will take you to the many restaurants, Pentagon City Mall, and 3 metro stations, and the airport pick up service from Regean National Airport.

The room was amazing! Clean and spacious, and with everything you can possibly need.
Breakfast was really good and Staff was very friendly and helpful when we needed a table.
The location was perfect, the subway station two blocks away.
A great stay for a very good price!

This hotel was unusually welcoming. Right from the moment of check in, the staff was courteous and anxious to answer questions and to help direct us around the area. This gracious attitude was evident in all of the workers, from the front desk down to the maids and the breakfast clean up staff. Unlike other hotels, the staff seemed to be genuinely glad to be there, and glad that you have chosen to be there too. We would definitely stay there again.

Stayed on a weekend , excellent price of $95, considering its $269 during the week. Rooms were comfortable, clean, very modern. Beds very comfortable . Breakfast had eggs, sausage , potato wedges, oatmeal, make fresh waffles with lots of toppings . Variety of Cereal , juices, coffee.
Bagels, muffins.etc... Everything was hot and delicious. Staff was very friendly very informative, instead of paying the $23 parking , they suggested parking on the street because it was free on the weekend . They have a shuttle that will take you wherever you wanna go. Hotel is close to everything.pentagon centre( Chevys tex mex and California pizza kitchen) pentagon city has a huge food court with anything you would want. I would definetly stay here again:)

Thank you for sharing your experience while staying at the Residence Inn in Pentagon City to your fellow TripAdvisor readers. I'm glad that you were able to enjoy a weekend with us, and that the staff was so helpful. Although it seems like our local shuttle can take you wherever you want to go, we can only take you withen 1 mile of the hotel. That does include the Pentagon, Air Force Memorial, DEA meseum, Pentagon City mall, dozens of restaurants, and three different metro stations.

The fitness room was under renovation, and I wish I'd known that before I came. There was no mention on the website nor on my reservation. We also had a fire drill at 1am the first night I was there. Not a good start. But breakfast the following morning was wonderful, albeit crowded. It felt like every sixth grader in the western hemisphere was here on a field trip and eating everything in sight. It's a very easy walk to the metro, especially if you walk along Army Navy and through Macy's into the mall. The room is very large, and the TV swivels so you can see it from pretty much anywhere. Everything was in good condition, and no cleanliness issues. (And I'm a stickler!) The hotel could use some additional elevators, or just make them faster.

Room Tip: Some rooms have an excellent view of the Pentagon and the Washington monument.

Thank you for recommending the Residence Inn at Pentagon City on TripAdvisor. I'm sorry that you were inconvenienced by the fitness center renovation at our hotel. I am happy to report that our fitness center and pool are both open now. The work took longer than expected, and some website information did not match the actual completion date. For that I do apologize. I hope when you visit our area again you get a chanc to work out in our new fitness center.
