I have visted the Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City for several legal conferences. I can only comment on the conference rooms, as I have never actually stayed at the hotel.
The hotel itself is fairly standard for the upscale Ritz-Carlton brand. Doormen, common areas appointed with thick plush carpeting, wood panelling, expensive wall paper and wall art. The bathrooms are pristine appointed with marble and have seperate sitting rooms, cloth towels, and private floor-to ceiling stalls.
Unfortunately a HUGE negative for this hotel is that it's conference facilities completely lack adequate plugs for laptops and other electronic devices. The conference rooms consist of ballrooms with numerous folding tables and plush chairs placed in the center of the room. While the conference setup is attractive it is simply not functiona;. Most of the conferences that I attend are full-day eight hour affairs and at every break attendees literally have to scramble to find an available plug along the wall to charge their computers and phones. I have actually requested that the conference hosts not partonize the Ritz solely on this basis.
On the plus side, the hotel is very conveniently located on the subway line, less than 20 minutes away from the DC Amtrak Station. There are a number of (expensive) hotels in the area, and numerous buses that provide easy transportation to less expensive hotel options. The hotel is also located next to a galleria-type mall which offers a number of affordable dining and range of downtime shopping options.
