When you plan your next trip to Washington D.C., you’ll want accommodations where you can be treated like a king or queen. The Ritz-Carlton hotel chain specializes in doing just that. There are two Ritz-Carlton hotels in Washington DC for you to choose from.
First, there is the the Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City, which features the Fyve Restaurant Lounge for your breakfast, lunch, and evening meals. This hotel provides convenience in that it sits just outside the blue and yellow Metro lines that can get you into Washington D.C. in less than 10 minutes. Should you be traveling on business then you’ll appreciate that the hotel has its own business center, over 7,200 square feet of meeting space, and high-speed Internet access.
Last, but not least, is the Ritz-Carlton, Tysons Corner. This hotel has its own shopping center directly next to the main entrance to the hotel. Tysons Galleria is big enough to keep you shopping and dining the entire day. When you’re not busy shopping, you can order a deep tissue massage at the Day Spa. Perhaps you’d like to order a seafood dish for dinner at the ENTYSE, Wine Bar & Lounge, where you can also sip on your favorite cocktail. The hotel also has its own indoor swimming pool, sauna, and steam room.
Things to Do
Both of the Ritz-Carlton hotels in Washington DC are close to all that there is to see and do in the city. When it comes to dining, you’ll want to make reservations at the Old Ebbitt Grill if you prefer American dishes, DC Coast Restaurant if seafood is more appealing, or Fogo de Chao for Brazilian cuisine. After you have your fill, you can catch a show at the John F. Kennedy Performing Arts Center, the National Theater, or Ford’s Theater. Sports enthusiasts can opt to catch a Washington Nationals Major League Baseball game instead at Nationals Park.
Getting Around Washington D.C.
Perhaps the most used method of travel when it comes to getting around Washington D.C. is the Metro system. There are buses and underground railways that are more affordable than hiring a taxi cab driver, although you can also take a cab if you require door-to-door service. Available for rent in the area are both cars and bicycles, but many of the attractions are within walking distance of each other for guests who enjoy getting a little exercise.
You can visit major attractions with ease from any of the Ritz Carlton hotels in Washington DC. You’re best bet is to start off at National Mall. When you walk from one end to the other, you’ll come across the Washington Monument, the Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial, and the Constitution Gardens. Afterward, you can stop by a few of the Smithsonian Institution museums that interest you. There is the National Air and Space Museum with its interactive exhibits, the National Museum of Natural History that has fossils and dinosaur bones to examine, and the National Gallery of Art with its sculpture garden and paintings from the Middle Ages.
