I chose Americana partly because of the retro exterior. The hotel was built in the 1960's and looks like it. The common areas retain the 60's appearance but the guest rooms are nicely updated. Our family of 4 functioned comfortably in the room which included a chair and ottoman and desk chair. The employees were very helpful as we were... More

I stayed here earlier this month when I had a friend in town and we went to a baseball game in D.C. I didn't want to drive all the way back out to western Fairfax County after the game (we had premium seats which included free alcohol :) ), so I looked for hotels to stay at. There's a dumpy...

I stayed at the Americana for 2 weeks in Feburary 2014 and had an overall great experience. I would say this hotel is the best for a budget minded traveler that doesn't plan to spend much time or money at the hotel, but needs a good home base. My one complaint is that on a Saturday night, there was a... More

We stayed there for seven days while taking our first trip to Washington DC. We were one block from the Marriott Hotel entrance to the Crystal City Mall and Metro station. We walked there each day to take the train to the monuments, museums and memorials in the city. It was super convenient. The hotel is very dated. The room... More

Ideal location is a short walk to metro, best staff, shuttle to nearby restaurants or shops, clean rooms, free wi-fi, breakfast is Dunkin Donuts, bagels, cereal, whole fruit, coffee, juice. Stayed 5 nights and would return for sure.

Why do people rave about this place? I don't understand it. It's cheap, but that's all. My flight arrived around noon. I called the hotel for a shuttle. The person who answered the phone was completely unintelligible. I called again hoping I'd get someone I could understand. No such luck. Painfully, I assembled enough dialogue to understand that the shuttle... More

Just back from 4 nights at the Americana. We chose it because of the excellent reviews combined with the budget price. We left feeling like it was a great choice for us, but at the same time the potential visitor should be fully aware of what to expect regarding some of aspects of the hotel. The positives: Great staff that... More

These guys really live up to their motto. Cheap rate and hospitality. It's not much to look at from the outside, and the rooms are small and need renovation. But everything you need for a stay in the D.C. metro area is there and they are conveniently located near the Crystal City metro station. Shuttles are available to take you... More

The Americana Hotel helped make our trip so enjoyable. The location and value are the biggest positives. Its close to the Metro and affordable. The continental breakfast included a good selection of bagels, donuts, cereal and fruit. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Would definitely stay here again.

This hotel has lots to offer. We stayed in a Deluxe King room for 3 nights. The rate was reasonable considering other area hotels. The room was very clean and well kept. The bed was very comfortable. The hotel offers free airport shuttle service as well as a daily breakfast. Breakfast included 4 cold cereals, fresh fruit, bagels, fresh pastry... More
