An opulent sleep near the Pentagon with views of the Potomac River, a locavore restaurant and an indoor pool

The Lowdown

Overlooking the Potomac River, three metro stops from Washington, DC, the Ritz-Carlton Pentagon City offers a seriously swanky stay for both business and pleasure travelers. Fyve Restaurant is a power spot for post-work Pentagon types, who sip from an extensive wine list of New World vintages and dine on new American fare like Maryland crab cakes with green tomato chutney or scallops with white cheddar grits and honey lardons. Work it off at the state-of-the-art gym or with a few laps at the indoor pool. Then retire to the cozy rooms decorated in Provencal yellows and blues with featherbeds dressed in Frette linens, marble bathrooms, flatscreen TVs and in-room coffee and tea making facilities.

In the Area

Adjacent to the Pentagon, a short drive from Reagan National Airport and 10 minutes from downtown DC, you’re well-situated for exploring both the District and Northern Virginia. Zip along 18 miles of Potomac-Virginia glory at the riverside Mount Vernon Trail, scoping out George Washington’s house and the art galleries and boutiques of Old Town Alexandria. You’re just three Metro stops away from DC’s monuments and the National Mall. The Smithsonian’s 18 museums and galleries have so many artifacts that less than 2 percent of them are on view at any given time. Scratch the surface with a visit to the National Portrait Gallery or the National Museum of the American Indian. Dine like a local by heading north to Dupont Circle for some mollusks at Hank’s Oyster Bar or a northern Thai tasting menu at celeb chef Johnny Monis’s Little Serow.

Good service, friendly staff

The club lounge is a trip saver, it offered convenience almost 24 hrs, it’s food is excellent & staff friendly.. rooms spacious but slightly old & miss some hangers in bathrooms, fitness center is old. Also staff need to learn how to knock on room doors less loudly & less aggressive as if they’re in a hurry but I could feel that the staff is trying all what they can to please us .. WiFi too slow.

Never Fails to Delight
Victoria S

The Ritz-Carlton Pentagon is our favorite local getaway for our mini-escape weekends. The ladies & gentlemen of this fine property, as with every Ritz-Carlton we’ve had the pleasure of visiting, never fail to anticipate our every need & exceed our every expectation. While this may not be the newest nor glitziest of RC properties, it remains an absolute classic through & through. From the moment you arrive & step through the door, the mere scent of the main hall & reception area has you feeling immersed in luxury. We received an exceptional, warm welcome from Dounia Chennagui, Guest Service Expert - which she proved herself to certainly be, ensuring we had a luxurious room with a spectacular view (as she handed me a glass of bubbly, nonetheless!). Sonia & her team in the Club Lounge welcomed us back like family & spoiled us rotten. And Front Desk Supervisor extraordinaire, Sayed Hekmat was always at hand, ensuring we had all we needed for an enchanted, delightful stay. Whether you’re in the DC area for business or pleasure, treat yourself & DO NOT miss this special gem of a property!

A solid R-C product but not 5*

This is a standard R-C property with excellent service. The room is good size but the bathroom needs updating. The lounge is fair and they run out of food in the evenings quickly-especially desserts.The highlight of this property is definitely the freindly and helpful service provided by all of the staff.
