Staying at the Americana has become a habit for us when visiting DC. They have an EXCELLENT staff, very pleasant and friendly. Free continental breakfast, parking, wifi and a shuttle service to and from Reagan airport which is maybe ten minutes away. When we were looking for a place to have dinner the shuttle driver wasn't busy and dropped us... More

We stayed at the Americana during a DC snowstorm. Everything was welcoming and warm. The staff helped us with directions to the underground mall nearby and updated info on the airport . Our shuttle took us right to our flight the next morning even though snow was everywhere.

This motel is a gem. It is not the most fancy motel but the rooms are very clean and have comfy beds. The price was the best in the area. The staff treated us like we were family. They were friendly & quite helpful. They have a free shuttle to and from Reagan Airport (10 minutes away), which we used.... More

Although we started off a little iffy ... non-smoking hotel but got a room that reeked of cigarette smoke and it was 11:00 pm, this incredibly accommodating staff moved us into a different room for the night then set us up in another room the next day. Beds were comfortable and the room was extremely clean. It was bitterly cold... More

We were looking for a hotel in a convenient location for doing some sightseeing. We found this and more in the Americana. Sure, some aspects are a little dated but that did not concern us. Free parking, free transportation to the Crystal City Metro stop (only used in the rain, otherwise it's very walkable), free breakfast (basic but just like... More

I stayed there for two nights this past weekend. It is, I think the Americana Hotel is the last independently owned hotel in the Jefferson Davis Highway or Route 1 corridor in Crystal City. Yes, the decor is somewhat dated. For example, there is a coke bottle opener bolted to the frame of my bathroom's door. When was the last... More
