The Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City Celebrates Spring with its Cherry Blossom Offerings

ARLINGTON, VIRGINIA – April 2, 2015 – While spring may be the most eagerly awaited season around the world, no place bursts into blossom quite like Washington, D.C. Since the first gift of 3,000 trees arrived from Japan in 1912, spring in The District has become synonymous with an explosion of delicate pink blossoms. The Washington D.C. Ritz-Carlton hotels, including The Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City, and the luxury brand’s properties throughout Japan collaborated on an exclusive guide to get the most of the cherry blossom celebration. 

From travel tips to cherry inspired recipes, the guide is guaranteed to blossom your cherry blossom experience. For an “off the beaten path” view of the cherry blossom trees, visit Arlington National Cemetery located only minutes away from The Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City, or explore the hotel’s top cherry blossom locations in D.C. 

fyve Restaurant Lounge has infused the cherry blossom theme into its delicious food and beverage offerings. Enjoy special beverages, Cocoa Cherry Martini and the Very Cherry Old Fashioned with Bourbon Soaked Cherries, at the bar along with Cherry-Crusted Crispy Calamari and the Cherry-and-Goat Cheese Flatbread. No matter what the meal includes, however, everyone must save room for dessert. The limited-time menu includes the ‘cherry-licious’ Triple Cherry Explosion and the Dark Chocolate Cherry Decadence. Find the recipe on Pinterest or The Ritz-Carlton, Pentagon City’s featured recipe page. 

In addition to the top 21 experiences, the hotel offers The Blossoming Adventures package. Designed to infuse every aspect of a guest’s stay with a sense of joyful discovery, the luxury hotel package begins with an exclusive cooler packed with cherry-inspired picnic treats.
