Because it’s outside the heart of Washington, D.C., The Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City requires a short drive to many of the city’s popular attractions. The Forbes Travel Guide Four-Star hotel is located inside the Pentagon City Mall, which is the closest traditional shopping mall to the city proper and offers a slew of shopping and casual restaurants. In addition to the mall itself, the luxury Arlington hotel is just a ten-minute drive or short Metro ride from D.C.’s many attractions. Explore Arlington Cemetery, take a trip to Georgetown for shopping and sightseeing, drive out to a Virginia winery, or plan an afternoon trip to scenic Old Town Alexandria or Mount Vernon. Nothing in the D.C. area is a trek by any means, so even though the hotel isn’t smack dab in the hub of the city, you’re close enough where nothing is too inconvenient.
