This Ritz has an excellent location. Two stops from the airport via the Metro---don't waste your money and TIME taking the cab over. Take the Metro which dumps you right at their doorstop. Most convenient. As par course, the staff and services were excellent. It is directly attached to a fine galleria of shops which include Macy's and Nordstrom's anchor stores, a CVS is across the street if you forget any necessities. The Metro takes you to any of the DC sites.
While this Ritz was clean, it seemed to lack the "energy" of the downtown one. For some reason, the lobby struck me as a little "cold". Not the staff, but the general ambiance of it. The rooms seemed older, were well appointed. Because one side of the hotel faced the roof of the Galleria, the view in our room was not particularly one you wanted to throw open the curtains to write home to Mom about. But, that was a condition that cannot be helped by the hotel, so no sense slighting them on that.
We'll certainly continue to use this Ritz as a home base as it is so nice to have the luxury of stepping off of a plane and stepping into a luxury hotel within minutes of landing. Maybe some flowers and cookies in the lobby will sing "welcome to your DC home" the next time we come in :)
