Americana hotel is clean, affordable, and is conveniently located near the metro. Pentagon city mall, the underground shops at crystal city, Reagan national airport, and the dc attractions are also very close. Make sure to bring a printout of your online reservation because when I checked in, they were going to charge me more. Other than this, my stay was... More

Our family of four stayed here this June while visiting Washington DC for tourism. We could not have been more pleased with our experience. The hotel and rooms are immaculate and well tended. Each day, a housekeeper thoroughly cleaned the room and provided us with ample towels. Our room had a fridge where we could keep snacks, adequate power outlets... More

We were there the week of the 4th of July. The whole place is clean and neat. The room was comfy, the staff was very helpful, and the continental breakfast was adequate. We would definitely come back.

Whenever I'm in the Arlington, VA./DC area I stay at the Americana Hotel. Although a bit old fashioned (I like this), it's very clean and comfortable. The shower in my room was amazing. They have a wonderful continental breakfast every morning, free parking and it is less than a block to the metro. The staff is very friendly (and actually... More

My husband and I stayed in this hotel for four nights. Location is perfect, few blocks from the subway, restaurants and shops. The hotel is clean, offers free parking which is very rare close to DC, we never try the breakfast but is also included. The bed was very small and old, but what we suffer the most was the... More

I have stayed at the Americana over the past few years for Memorial Day weekend. Of all the hotels I've stayed in over the years I have to say the staff, prices and cleanliness is the best. I love the newly upgraded rooms. The area is beautiful and only a short walk to the METRO and Chrystal City attractions. I... More

After searching for a hotel close to the metro that was affordable for our budget, we chose the Americana Hotel. Beware-it can be tricky to find because if you blink you might miss the exit from the highway. When we checked in we weren't able to connect to wifi so the staff let us switch to one of the newly...

Pros: cheap, clean, free parking, shuttle Cons: breakfast is very limited, rooms are HOT, halls are sweltering I just can't get comfortable in a hot room. We requested a fan the first night and were told to call maintenance in the morning...so the first night - no sleep. It was cheap and clean, but the window unit just couldn't cool... More
