The staff was wonderful, courteous and helpful. The metro close and able to get downtown DC, Smithsonian, the Mall without any difficulty. Parking free, free WiFi!!!!!!!! Would not stay at any other hotel in the DC area! Save your money and spend your money on other things.

I'm not gonna lie - I was a bit nervous pulling up to the date-looking building, but once inside the cozy lobby with friendly front staff I knew I didn't need to worry. The room was clean and comfortable. It must be the 1960's concrete building, but the place is super-quiet! You can't hear a peep out of any other... More

We booked our stay at the Americana based on the generally positive reviews. When we arrived we were concerned about the outside appearance of the hotel which is sandwiched between a luxury apartment building and the Embassy Suites. Make no mistake, this hotel is quite old and definitely in need of some exterior sprucing up. There is no greenery or... More

I am a travel agent in Toronto, and recently I stayed at the Americana Hotel in Crystal City VA. The hotel is very well located in the Washington DC area. Easy access to the highways and only two blocks from Washington's underground transportation system. Parking and continental breakfast is included. The price was very reasonable in comparison to others. The... More

My first impression of the hotel was the exterior which had me wondering what I got myself into. It is an old hotel (probably constructed in the 1950-60's). The furniture in the room is old as well. The rooms were clean and the staff friendly. Considering that they offer shuttle service to airport , close to the metro, located in... More

When we first arrived we were given a room that was in serious need of renovation. Even though we were there for sight seeing and knew we wouldn't be in the room much, I knew spending 7 nights in there wouldn't work for me. I let the front desk know and they gave me a different room immediately. It was... More

The hotel was close to the metro, just a block away. That metro station has shops and places to eat and a drugstore if you have forgotten something. The staff went out of their way to explain the metro, they have maps so you don't get lost, lots of brochures and information available. Big bed and the room was clean.... More

This hotel was a very reasonable price, everything was clean, the bed was comfortable and the staff were pleasant. I stayed for 10 nights over Easter. My room was on the third floor. The bed was very comfortable and I liked the quilt which was cosy. The bathroom seemed to be the original fittings and not only was everything very... More

Great price for the hotel and prefect location. Free Wifi and free parking. The room was updated and nice. A lot of electric outlets. The only problems was the mattress are too soft for me and I prefer more firm mattress.

The Americana Hotel in Arlington is a ten-minute walk to the Crystal City Metro line. This gives one easy access to the metropolitan D.C. area. The price was very reasonable given the location. However, the tiles in the bath were broken, the sink had a crack in it, and the sliding door would not close completely (leaving a 1/2 gap... More
