Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City
Overlooking the Pentagon, this Ritz-Carlton property is situated directly on the Potomac River, just three miles from the National Mall. The 366 guest rooms include dark-wood furniture and Italian marble bathrooms, as well as nightly turndown service with treats. The hotel also has an indoor pool and a private entrance to the adjacent Fashion Centre at Pentagon City, an upscale shopping mall with stores like Kenneth Cole and Michael Kors. The on-site Fyve Restaurant Lounge serves New American fare beside a working fireplace, with live jazz on the weekends.
