The Destination
Washington's best-kept secret isn't even in the city proper—it's in Virginia. Less than a mile from the scenic Potomac River and boasting postcard-worthy views of DC's major monuments, Pentagon City places the whole of Washington at your fingertips from the seclusion of an upscale suburban setting. All walks of DC life converge here whether it's inside the Metro system's most-traveled subway stop, under the glass atrium of the Washington area's biggest shopping mall, or on the wildly popular bike trails that run all the way to Maryland. Proximity to the nation's capital is Pentagon City's biggest draw, but visitors will find it an adequate destination in and of itself.

The Digs
Sheraton Pentagon City Hotel's proximity to power is obvious—it overlooks both the iconic Pentagon building and the Potomac River. Traditional rooms offer plush pillow-top mattresses, marble-clad bathrooms, and stunning monument views. Perks like in-room movies and video games and high-speed Internet provide delightful distractions, and daily newspaper service keeps you up to date with the news across the river. In the morning, the on-site Potomac Restaurant serves Belgian waffles with strawberries or steel-cut oatmeal with cinnamon, pecans, and raisins along with coffee, tea, and juice.

The Diversions
It's easy to see why this Virginia-based Escape is for lovers. The adorable Village at Shirlington is the perfect place to stroll hand-in-hand down its tree-lined streets touting a slew international restaurants, boutiques, and entertainment venues like the award-winning Signature Theatre. Still, you'll want to spend an intimate evening in DC, and the Pentagon City Metro station is just two stops from the heart of downtown. Get off at Gallery Place and tour bustling F Street where Madame Tussaud's, Ford's Theatre, the National Portrait Gallery, and the International Spy Museum are mere blocks away. For lunch, grab a baguette at Cowgirl Creamery—a tasty cheese shop on F Street. Grab a cocktail at the Speakeasy inside LivingSocial's 918 F Street. For dinner, get close with shareable plates: Ping Pong Dim Sum serves up scrumptious Asian-style dumplings while La Tasca lays out a spread of savory Spanish tapas.
