We had a very pleasant three day stay here end of September. Our room overlooked the Pentagon, and was clean, well-equipped and spacious. The Pentagon City mall and Metro stop is a 5 minute walk, and it takes just 5 minutes from there into the the centre of the government area of Washington. There is also a supermarket for food 2 blocks away, and the room was perfect for
preparing and eating meals. Only negative was the lack of a kettle - we were told that these were not available. No major problem, just a bit surprising.The breakfast buffet was excellent.
Highly recommended as an alternative to staying in the more expensive downtown area.
