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

This is definitely a "retro" hotel - but what they lack in modern features they more than make up for in charm, service, and location. The rooms are not big and the bathroom was absolutely tiny (for a family of 4), but it worked out just fine. The staff was friendly and helpful, providing us "insider" tourist information and even...
