The Bartlett

For the most part its been great. Its a good mix of families, older couples, and college students so the apartment complex isn't too loud. There is a lot of construction going on in the area as the new Amazon headquarters is being built across the street. There is a pool, several lounge areas, and a nice gym. Management and the front desk have been easy to get a hold of and are typically very accommodating. The apartment complex is also very convenient as it is located right down the street from the metro and is above a whole foods. The apartments are one of the more affordable nicer options in the area as well.

IN LOVE

This apartment complex is only two years old and I absolutely love it here. It's about a 35 minute commute to campus (door to door). It's located a 5min walk from the metro and is right near a Starbucks, mall, restaurants, Costco, TJMaxx, the works. It also has a Whole Foods and coffee shop IN THE BUILDING. It has a rooftop pool, with a great view of the city, and a huge gym. Additionally, it has a large work bar where you can use desktop computers and print for free.

Great New Building

The building was built within the last year and has a great view of the city/Pentagon. It's a pet friendly building with all the amenities you need. Basically, the view and amenities is what caught my attention. It's also conveniently located near the mall.

Getting around Pentagon City


Pentagon City Reviews

34 reviews
Safe. Feels like a retirement community. Drivers stop to let you cross the street to the apartment.

For the metro, the ride itself is about 20 min. I just budget in extra time for walking and not wanting to arrive just on time. It shouldn't take 45 minutes to get to school unless they're doing maintenance. Then, add 10 minutes.
Lot's of restaurants and bars on our end, easy access to grocery and all. I'd love more "character" locally owned pubs or dives or something, but mostly is chains and cheesey sorta places.
The Crystal City and Pentagon City area has a lot of restaurants and shopping in convenient walking distance. The area tends to clear out after 5 on weekdays, but is often busy on weekends, mostly with tourists. I have always felt safe walking alone in the area at whatever time of day/night.
There is not a lot of green space, unless you count Long Bridge "Park", which is a dead-end, cement "bridge" that looks over soccer and baseball fields with some views of D.C.
The location is great. It's a 7 minute walk to the blue line metro, and the total commute to campus is 25 minutes (when the blue line is running properly). An uber takes about 12 minutes and costs an average of $5 per ride (with uber pool). Pentagon City has just about everything you could need. There is a Whole Foods across the street, and the Fashion Center mall is right next to the metro station. There are restaurants, coffee shops, and convenience stores, and a very well maintained public park.
General vibe is 30-somethings wanting to settle down, lots of dogs. Not a huge social scene (which I'm A-OK with).

Pros:
-Very metro-accessible (blue/yellow, so can get into the city in multiple directions if there are delays)
-Walkable - easy to get to grocery store, Pentagon City mall, library, restaurants, etc. within minutes
-Quiet and safe, and generally well-lit in the evenings

Cons:
-I'd like to see a few more restaurant options. There are good casual dining options, like Naked Pizza, California Pizza Kitchen, and the mall food court, but besides Bonefish Grill there's not much a step up from that.
-I don't feel much sense of community, and don't know my neighbors. Not as diverse-seeming as other parts of DC.
The Pentagon City area is safe, quiet (except for big shopping weekends!), and well-lit. Grocery store (Harris Teeter) and tons of other shopping options for all other needs. The metro station is convenient to all area apartment complexes. Great green space/parks across from mall with lots of walking paths. Closest churches however are on 23rd St in Crystal City -- which is not too far of a walk in good weather!
Pros: safe, lots of retail and dining, convenient to the Metro and highways and getting into DC in general. Not necessarily the "hottest" nightlife spot, but great to be near "hot" nightlife spots but not have to deal with it on your front step.
The neighborhood has good restaurants and is near the mall, which is great. It also has a Costco, which is awesome as well. Metro is super close to everything in the area. It's an upcoming area!
