Traveling with my family, I always look for hotels that are economical, yet provide a level of comfort and uniformity that I am accustomed to (Mainly, Starwoods properties). I was a little on the fence about the Sheraton Pentagon City as it was not in a popular area, but it did seem close to DC and easy enough to get around.
We arrived a little too early and were not able to check-in, but the folks at the front desk was very pleasant and took our bags and promised to call us once the rooms were ready. On initial inspection, I was pleased with the lobby. Clean, pleasing tones and welcoming. We headed out to DC for the afternoon, not thinking much about checking in at that point.
We promptly received a call at 3pm informing us our rooms were ready. We weren't going to be back until early evening, so no worries. Upon arriving back, I was informed that we would have access to the Club Lounge, even though I am only Gold level SPG. I was so surprised! Our bags were delivered to our room by the same front desk staff and pleasantly welcomed us to the hotel. It was my first chance to use the "Thank You" certificates that SPG provides for someone who gives excellent service. On top of Club access, we of course also had free wifi.
Since we hadn't found a restaurant yet and were pretty tired from walking, we checked out the Club. Decent selection of food on hand and, although not a full meal, was just enough to hit the spot and satisfy us for the evening! We enjoyed a great view of DC, Arlington and the Pentagon from the Club!
Next morning, we headed back to the Lounge where a tasty breakfast was served. Right on par with other Sheraton Clubs. We were now ready for more DC sightseeing!
The rest of the stay was enjoyable and restful. We had a great view of DC and our connecting rooms allowed the kids to have their space, but come over to our side easily if needed.
Upon checkout, I had one more surprise waiting for me! I was told that there was no parking fee. I'm not sure why we did not have to pay the $22 a night (or whatever it was), but it was wiped off our bill....of which we did not have one, since I used points. Seriously a fantastic stay!! Maybe a little biased, but the staff seemed to go out of their way and provide service above and beyond! Receiving several perks I did not expect to, I will certainly be staying here again if my travels take me to DC!
