Located across the Potomac River in northern Virginia, The Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City makes an ideal oasis for business and leisure travelers alike. The property features a business center and plenty of meeting space, which makes it easy to work from the road. And sightseers love that the Arlington National Cemetery and the Pentagon are nearby, while indoor access to the metro makes commuting to the National Mall in Washington, D.C. a breeze. Plus, if you've got little ones in tow, this Ritz outpost offers a variety of family-friendly amenities, including kid-friendly menus. When hunger sets in, retreat to fyve Restaurant Lounge for delectable modern American fare and inventive cocktails. And when it's time to turn in for the day, you'll sleep easy with plush duvets and 400-thread-count Frette linens. Accommodations also come equipped with flat-screen TVs, marble bathrooms and lavish bath products. While most recent guests report a satisfactory stay and stellar customer service, some said that the hotel facilities could use some updating, as they aren't quite up to the Ritz' high standards. Since Ritz-Carlton falls under the Marriott umbrella, if you participate in the Marriott Bonvoy program, you can earn or redeem points by choosing to stay here. Note that the hotel is connected to the Fashion Centre at Pentagon City shopping mall.
