This is a very nice hotel attached to a very nice mall called Tyson’s Galleria. They are finishing the “Mono-Rail” train that will connect this mall to the other mall (Tyson’s Corner Center) about a 4 Minute drive away(approx.).
While staying at the Ritz we took advantage of the free shuttle to this 2nd mall which had many nice stores that were.... a "little less high end” than the Galleria. Many nice restaurants and cafes at both Malls.
We also took the free hotel shuttle to the Metro train/Subway to be able to visit Wash DC City Centre. Had no issues whatsoever and the shuttle will come back for you when you want to be picked up at the Metro. They ask that you avoid between 4 to 7pm as this is “rush hour”.
Our main Driver “David” was a pleasure as was Mustafa on one occasion.
The Concierge “Baris” was a huge help with assisting on plans for visiting the Capitol, Smithsonian, etc. He even booked our tickets for the “Olde Town Trolley Tour” which we took at night. See other reviews for info on this tour as well as other Washington area places.
The Ritz has wonderful service. I arrived early(my wife arrived later in the day) and Erica at the front desk managed to find me a room hours before the normal “noon” check in. She was very pleasant.
The pool, steam room, sauna and whirlpool were excellent. A little dated but still wonderful. The service at these areas was also top notch.
The room service was a little pricy of course but it was excellent(see pic). It was fast, hot and delicious! I also ate at the Entyse Bar/Resto which was very nice.
The room was a little small but had a wonderful view (see pics)
Overall would recommend this hotel for business or pleasure.
