Modern Day Spa is a very relaxing place to spend a girl's day out and enjoy some pampering. Their prices are a bit high, but most spas are. I like the availability of gift certificates as well, which are great for bridal showers, mother's day, etc. The massages are definitely recommended, and they have a very professional staff.
I have gotten my hair done at Bubbles several times by different stylists, and there have always been consistently good results. They also offer up-dos, highlights, and coloring. The location inside of Pentagon City mall makes it very convenient and metro accessible. My only complaint is that the services can be expensive and add up quickly.
PROS: All good stylists, convenient location
CONS: Can be expensive
I recently took my car to Alexandria Toyota Scion for a routine emissions test, and the interior waiting area was very clean and comfortable. Unfortunately, the wait was very long on a weekday morning. If you are in a rush, I would recommend elsewhere, but everything else was just fine.
PROS: Clean, Efficient
CONS: Long Wait
Kay Jennings Toyota had the lowest price that we found while my husband was shopping for a 2005 Corolla. The salespeople were very friendly and gave us no pressure to buy. Everything was a breeze, and they even offered us discounts (college graduate program) that we didn't even know about!
PROS: Price, Staff
There are several reasons why I am glad to have chosen Northern Virginia Imports to buy my used car.
I was at first a bit skeptical of the size and location of the dealership, but the staff was very friendly and went out of their way to help. The prices absolutely can not be beat, they are very reasonable.
They offer excellent warranties as well. I have had my car for 7 months and have not had a single problem. Every minor ding and scratch on the exterior was repaired at no extra charge, and they even put in a brand new cd player/radio unit for free.
I would recommend them to anyone!
PROS: Price, Customer Service, Ease of Transaction
CONS: Small Dealership
Sunflower is a small vegetarian restaurant with many excellent choices for vegetarians and people going out with vegetarian friends. The "General Tso's Surprise" is outstanding and tastes even better than the "real" thing. The staff is very friendly, and the prices are great especially during lunch hours.
My husband and I are huge fans of Indian Food and chose to try Bombay Bistro through the recommendation of the Washingtonian Magazine. We were very disappointed with the buffet. I left with a stomachache and my husband was not feeling well either. The food was not warm enough, or even flavorful enough. There are much better Indian restaurants in the area that don't even cost as much.
The River House Valet Shop has great dry cleaning services with very fast turnaround time. The prices are great, and the location is very convenient. The staff is very friendly, and they have never disappointed me with their services.
Pentagon City mall has a large parking garage, as well as an on-site metro stop. The decor is gorgeous, and there are all types of stores to choose from. The food court is very good as well. The stores tend to be more on the expensive side, however.
Maggie Moo's is a cute little ice cream store in Pentagon Row which is very easy to access by car or metro. The ice cream is great. It is a bit pricey, but very good for the occassional treat.
