The best part about this hotel is the location, only a block from the Crystal City metro. Also, it does not have all those annoying extra fees for parking, breakfast and wifi...those are all included. My husband and I stay here fairly often for weekends in DC. Rates are lower on the weekend. The staff is competent and friendly and... More

I felt like got trapped by the booking websites, the pictures in the websites were way far from reality. The cleaning liquids they use in cleaning literally could killed me. Noisy Window air-conditioning units. Rooms' door locks are in a very bad situation, I struggled to lock my room's door. No fresh air in the hotel. Low WiFi signal was... More

Definitely this isn't the Ritz and the rooms are not huge and it would be nice to see some updating in the public restroom in the main lobby near the breakfast area but nowhere else in the area are you going to get free breakfast (cold cereal, oatmeal, fruit, donuts, bagels), free wifi, free parking, and cheap rooms in a...

FIVE STARS for cleanliness, affordability, and for being American owned --- you won't feel like you're on foreign soil. From a business perspective as a government employee, I firmly believe this is a way to save taxpayer dollars. The Americana is a three-minute walk to the Crystal City (Metro) Station. Nearly any location around the WashDC beltway can be reached... More

The Americana is an older style hotel with great rates. We stayed in room 404 and were very satisfied. The room was very clean and updated minus the bathroom. We stayed with our granddaughter and had two queen size bed. The room was large enough and had a large flat screen tv, a small refrigerator, and a desk. Now, for... More

Booked for an overnight layover at DC and my incoming flight got delayed. I tried calling them (no one picked up) and leaving a message on their website. Finally made it 4 hours before check out only to be told I cannot use the room I booked for a shower because I have been charged as a no show.

Stayed here for 3 nights during a month long tour of the USA. Good affordable base for hotels close to central DC. Two metro stations about 5/10 minutes away. Two excellent shopping centres also just minutes away with brilliant food courts. Breakfast served by the hotel was more than adequate. Large rooms with free wifi. Free parking. They even run...

Interesting hotel and a good choice when visiting DC. Close to the airport and metro. Free parking for the guests. 10-15 minutes drive to main attractions. Rooms and bathrooms are clean, but some furniture needs updating. Basic breakfast is served in the lobby.

The people at the front desk were hospital and very helpful. They helped me navigate DC. It's close to the airport and the metro station is within walking distance. They also upgraded my room at no additional charge. They also provide a shuttle service for free for hotel guests.
