“Good hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 6, 2013

Stayed here for the labor day weekend. Room was clean and staff was pleasent. The DC Metro is a short walk from the hotel {12 minutes by train to the DC Mall}. The hotel will shuttle you anywhere within a mile radius. Pentagon is a short walk from the hotel. The only negative was that there was a HS football team staying at the hotel, so having breakfest was an issue. Lines to long ,no place to sit.we left the hotel and went to a diner nearby. Would recommend staying at this hotel

Thank you for sharing your experiences at the Residence Inn in Penatgon City with other TripAdvisor readers. I'm glad that you enjoyed your time visiting our area. I apologize that you were not able to take advantage of our breakfast. The great news is that the HS team from Florida won their game that afternoon!!!

My family and I spent two nights at the Pentagon City Residence Inn in late June, 2013. The hotel is very large and seems to host many military personnel with Pentagon business. There were many uniforms, of all types, staying there. Great, if you're intrigued by military business as we are. The 2 bedroom suite was nice. One bedroom had a nice distant view of the Jefferson Memorial and the Washington Monument and the other bedroom had a view of a vacant lot in the early stages of construction...(or maybe just an empty lot). It is a nice, busy place. The buffets are hectic because of the enormity of the place and the food is adequate, but nothing special. The ice cream bar was nice, but their buffet is a bit sloppy. Perhaps we were there during an overly hectic time. We always try to stay at Residence Inn, but overall, the Dupont Circle location works better for us. It was nice being in DC. Pentagon City works best if you need a pool and you enjoy shopping at malls, as their mall is a five-minute walk away.

Room Tip: Try to face D.C. so you avoid looking over the vast empty lot.

Thank you for taking the time to recommend the Residence Inn at Pentagon City on Tripadvisor. I'm glad that the Residence Inn brand suits your family's needs so well. We would love to have you back, as we are also only 2 metro stops from the National Mall so I would argue closer to the sites than Dupont Circle, but our sister hotel there is a wonderful alternative.

Best place we found to stay in DC with young grandkids, ages 6 and 9. They loved the free breakfast with wide variety of items including make your own waffles, fresh fruit, eggs, cereal, juices, yogurts, etc. The food service crew was wonderful, handled large crowds well and replenished items quickly. Best to eat breakfast early - before 8 am to avoid long lines. Two block walk to Pentagon City Fashion Mall, food court and metro station. Two stops to the Mall and Smithsonian musuems on the yellow line express. Used the hotel shuttle service to good restaurants on 23 rd st (Legal Seafood, good Greek restaurant) as long as it within a mile or less away. Nice indoor swimming pool and fitness center. Good choice of free newspapers offered each day (USA Today, Wall Street Journal and even the Sunday Washington Post). Wi-fi works well. Fully equipped kitchen comes in handy for lunches and snackis. Maid service was good. Two bedroom suite was not spacious but accommodated 5-6 people very well. Parking was costly ($23 a day) but that's par for DC. Front desk was knowledgeable and very accommodating. No complaints whatsover. We'd come back

Great place to stay. Great location, within walking distance of many things. Lots of street parking nearby so don't waste your money parking in the hotel lot. Flavored water in the lobby was nice to come back to after a long hot day of sightseeing. Breakfast is great but make sure you get there early to avoid long lines but there's a lot to choose from. Very clean hotel. Hot tub was most def a plus though the lifeguard could've done a better job of keeping splashing kids out of it. From the top floor you get a nice view of the Pentagon. Also very close to popular D.C attractions. Overall wonderful place to stay.

Thank you for taking the time to recommend the Residence Inn at Pentagon City on Tripadvisor. You gave many great tips to future travellers. I know that our breakfast gets busy on the weekends. If you are an early riser, you can almost have your pick of any table before 8:30am. I will also pass on yourremrks to the lifeguard team. Thanks again for the great review and tips.

Highly recommend going this route for your trip to DC. A short walk to amazing shopping centre (Apple, Forever 21, Ann Taylor, Norstrum's) and the Metro subway. We were a family with 3 kids and so I booked a two bedroom suite, which included a small living room area and kitchen with table. Breakfast every morning (standard warm and cold offerings) and apparently dinner Monday to Wednesday evenings (we didn't try as we were out). Don't hesitate to book this- so much more space and cheaper than in DC and so easy.

Room Tip: Higher rooms get a view of Capitol Hill and the Pentagon. Give yourself time to check out the mall w...

I'm pleased your family had a great time, and look forward t welcoming you back on your next trip to the area.

This hotel seemed so nice and business traveler oriented on the web I was a little worried to take my three kids ages 9, 8 and 5 here. But it turned out awesome. The staff was very pleasant to all and really friendly to the kids. We stayed a two bedroom suite that perfectly met our needs. The room was ready well before ordinary check-in time and when we checked out the hotel put our luggage (a LOT) in a room to wait so we could make a last trip into DC. The airport and Metro are both super close. The Metro is only two blocks away and they have a shuttle which will take you anywhere in a 1 mile radius so you literally have access to dozens of eating places in all price ranges and styles. The metro gives quick and easy access to all points of interest in DC. I would definitely stay here again.
