The Hotel is not super fancy but it gets the job done very well. It is a 4 story, older hotel. The rooms are clean and comfortable. The bathroom is an older style but we loved the charm. Our room was very close to the freeway but road noise was not a problem. The hotel offers a nice basic breakfast... More

We had a great stay at the Americana. So close to the Metro and the shuttle took us right there. The price was great for being so close to the DC attractions. I was also impressed with how clean the hotel was. It was an older hotel, but the rooms and lobby were spotless!!

We first looked at this hotel because it had one of the cheaper prices in the area. Reviews were mostly good but the odd review was scary so we were still cautious after booking. We arrived after a 7 hour drive to a friendly, well mannered, helpful desk clerk! Check in was very easy. Our King room was average size... More

Great location near the Pentagon and Arlington, we had a great stay. Must mention Esther of the front desk who was especially kind to us on our stay. It is an old style hotel with a 60's-70's look and installations but well maintained. I enjoyed the trip back to the 70's and explaining how the things were when I was... More

This hotel was clean, no frills and perfect for visiting D.C. They had shuttles that would take you to the Metro but a Metro station was less than 2 blocks away. The front desk people were very, very nice and helpful. Breakfasts were fine (nothing fancy) and the price is really, really good and FREE parking!!! The only thing that... More

Hotel is well connected, but unfortunately rooms are old and bathrooms r really small, I asked for upgrade but hotel was full. Friendly staff, basic bf and shuttle service are good part of the hotel. There are lot of other options like Marriot, Oakwood etc in and around may be better options to pick from if ur not familiar with... More

A run down and tired place, the room smelled like a mix of damp rug and dirty piping. Internet is slow and doesnt work in all rooms (we changed rooms right away). That all said, the staff really seem to want you to have a nice time. The van will take you anywhere from the airport to the metro to... More

We spent three nights in the Americana on a sightseeing trip to Washington. Location excellent, staff very friendly and helpful. Don't be put off by the exterior, rooms spotless and comfy. Free shuttle around the area and to Regan airport- a real bonus. Excellent value for money.

The hotel from the outside looks tired, but the room was clean and comfortable. The hotel's shuttle bus to the train and neighbouring restaurants was an added unexpected bonus. Free Parking once you found them. The breakfast area was cramped But the free breakfast was more than adequate. The staff were courteous, helpful and professional at all times. A very... More

I won't repeat what is said about this hotel by earlier reviewers in terms of location, quality of hotel, etc. I give it two stars as somewhere I felt cheated. Here is why: - I stayed in a Standard Single Room. The Bathroom/Toilet size was smaller than a budget Hong Kong Hotel. I could not sit properly on the WC... More
