I have stayed at the Pentagon Ritz Carlton twice while on business. There is nothing better when visiting DC than not having to rent a car to get around. The Ritz Carlton Pentagon City is 2 subway/metro stops from the airport and roughly 50 steps from the Pentagon City metro entrance, which is off the Blue and Yellow lines. The blue line will take you to most of the top DC tourist spots. They also offer government and military rates.
Once inside all the standard Ritz Carlton touches greet you. The front desk called me by name during my stay. I have no idea how they can remember one person out of the many who stayed there but they did. The room was spacious and comfortable with 400-thread count Egyptian cotton luxury bedding. Bathrooms have marble counters and fluffy towels.
The hotel is connected to Pentagon City Mall and is roughly a 5 min walk to Pentagon Row where there are several dining options such as: Thaiphoon, Asia Bistro (sushi/martinis), Sine Irish Pub, Champ’s Sports Bar, La Creperie, Murali (Italian, VERY good) and Lebanese Taverna just to name a few. There is also an Elizabeth Arden Red Door Spa if you have time to indulge in some relaxation.
Overall, the hotel was a wonderfully luxurious and convenient stay and will be my first choice on returns to the DC area.
