#TravelTuesday - Staycation at Ritz Carlton, Pentagon City12:00 AM
Earlier this month was my husband's birthday, but I missed the first half of the day as I was in Phoenix for a press trip. I wanted to make up for my absence and hence planned a staycation at the The Ritz Carlton Pentagon City. While it was a gift for him, it was also what the doctor had prescribed to me, "Be a total bum and don't move an inch from the bed". What better place to relax and unwind than in the luxury of a The Ritz Carlton property.
The Ritz Carlton Pentagon City is located on the banks of Potomac in Arlington, VA stone-throw away from DC downtown. I love luxury hotels. The classy sophisticated vibe encompasses from the moment you walk in. There is also a private entrance to Fashion Mall, which is connected to the property. The fact that the hotel is decorated with Christmas decorations and is serving warm cookies and apple cider to everyone in the lobby, is simply a bonus!
There is easy metro access with yellow and blue line right outside the hotel which connects to the malls as well. The hotel is close to the Reagan International Airport and to the city where there are plenty of shopping and eating options to choose from.
We were fortunate to be upgraded to a suite, which was fantastic as it had a separate living area with a powder room along with a spacious bathroom and two closet spaces. The bed was extremely comfortable (hence!). We should know, as we spent the whole weekend in it. It also had a desk in the living room, which I appreciated as I am always working while I am on-the-go. The was free wifi for members, which might be a little inconvenient for people who are not but signing-up for the rewards membership is free and takes just a few minutes.
If you are looking for a staycation or are in town for work or pleasure the Ritz Carlton is a great property.
