“Excellent Service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2013

I stayed at this hotel for a 2 day conference and found every aspect of my stay completely enjoyable. It was extremely clean, the service was amazing, and I loved that it was attached to a 3-story high-end mall (the only deterent to spending more time in the mall were the insanely large groups of teenagers congesting it). There was also a lovely pedestrian area with shops and restaurants behind the hotel.

Bring cash to tip all of the people who are going to assist you during your stay.

Room Tip: If I had one complaint it would be that the walls are fairly thin, and the second night of my stay t...

Stayed here during a 3 day medical meeting. What you would expect from a Ritz in terms of service - kind and friendly with a 'can do' attitude... but the rooms were sort of a let down. They weren't terrible - just a bit worn and dated. Room was clean and comfortable though. Had an excellent lunch at their restaurant Fyve. Super flavorful and healthy - Ahi Nicoise salad.

Hotel is connected to a bustling and over crowded shopping mall. I think all the DC kid tour groups make a stop here... yikes! Great location for access to the metro (directly across the street) making it easy to get anywhere in DC quickly.

I would not pay more than 2-3 hundred bucks out of my own pocket to stay here. Not a bad place to stay though...

The staff of the hotel was fabulous. From arrival to departure the hotel staff made my visit very pleasant. Front desk, restaurant staff and bar staff went above and beyond to be accommodating. I look forward to my next visit. The location is superb and the access to the mall is a great addition to any trip whether for business or pleasure.

Great location next to Metro. Service is beyond description even for similar hotels. They are at the top of the game in every respect (food, service etc). They not only meet your needs, they anticipate them.

Stayed here for my brother's wedding with my wife and numerous other family members for a long weekend. Obviously the Ritz is known for it's amazing service but I was once again blown away by the lengths the staff went to ensure we had an amazing stay. Ester in guest services was very helpful in arranging some special items prior to our stay and even met us when she found out we were checking in. Bryan at Fyve Lounge was equally amazing in ensuring that we were all fed and "hydrated" as we relaxed in his bar each evening (I swear he lives there as he was there morning, noon and night!). We stayed on the club level and loved the service as well as the Club Lounge. We plan on coming back!

Room Tip: Stay on the club level is possible. The endless goodies, etc. on the Club Lounge are a great option...

We spent a long weekened while visiting Washington, D.C. with our young sons. The proximity to the Metro (right outside!) is amazing and the access to the Pentagon Mall was great. Could use some updating, however, the staff was pleasant and we would definately return!

I stayed at the Ritz-Carlton in Arlington, VA for three nights while on business in the Washington, DC area. The hotel is typical of the chain with comfortable, well equipped rooms and excellent service. It is only two stops on the Metro from Ronald Reagan National airport with the entrance directly in front of the hotel. Adding to the convenience of the location is a shopping mall with a direct entrance from the hotel. This is handy for any shopping you may need to do while traveling. My room was large and being on a higher floor had a nice view of the Pentagon building. The room was quiet and had a good array of bath products. The décor and furnishings are due for a refurbishment. The price was above average.
