ARLINGTON, VA--(Marketwired - Oct 29, 2014) - With both the nation's capital and Arlington National Cemetery just a stone's throw away from The Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City, patriotic pride surrounds the hotel. And while guests have long enjoyed excursions to national landmarks from the luxury hotel's convenient Washington, D.C. area location, the property's new Wreaths Across America contribution is an even better way to demonstrate an appreciation for one's country. 

Available now through January 31, 2015, the Arlington hotel's new offering enables guests to pay homage to servicemen and women who've paid the ultimate price for American freedom. When a guest reserves their stay, the hotel will donate (in the guest's name) a wreath for Arlington National Cemetery's annual wreath-laying ceremony in December.

In addition to sponsoring a wreath for a fallen soldier's headstone, guests will enjoy luxury overnight accommodations in some of the most lavish guest rooms in the city with feather beds; marble bathrooms; 24-hour, in-room dining; and flat-panel, high-definition televisions. Club Level and Executive Suite options are also available through the package and afford additional space and amenities. Family, friends, and loved ones can also enjoy an array of holiday festivities this season at The Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City. Indulge in a terrific Thanksgiving Brunch and Dinner and save room for three joyous Christmas offerings including Christmas Eve Dinner, Christmas Brunch and Christmas Dinner, all accompanied with live entertainment. Children can gather round for a special Gingerbread and Train Workshop, attended by none other than Santa and Mrs. Claus! Ring in the New Year as you enjoy a festive ambiance of live music and a savory pre-fixe dinner menu. 

Each year, Wreaths Across America inspires more than 600,000 volunteers throughout the country to lay wreaths on veterans' headstones. This year's event is scheduled for December 13th.

Guests are invited to join the Ladies and Gentlemen to participate December 13th in the wreath-laying ceremony or Saturday, January 24, 2015 for the wreath pick-up. Or guests can simply visit Arlington National Cemetery during their stay. (The site is open 365 days a year.) But this luxury hotel positions visitors to enjoy many additional activities while in town. Thanks to the Blue and Yellow Metro lines located directly outside the hotel's doors, guests can explore nearby destinations like historic Old Town Alexandria, Georgetown, Capitol Hill, and downtown Washington, D.C. Or they can stay closer to home and wander through the more than 250 shops and restaurants of The Fashion Centre at Pentagon City, which is directly connected to the hotel.
