What a find this hotel proved to be for us! FREE PARKING validated until midnight on the last day of your stay. Convenient to the Metro, and therefore, to all of the Washington DC area. Comfortable beds. Yes, the decor is "Americana," but we found that charming in a way. The staff keeps everything spotlessly clean. And they go above... More

I stayed at the Americana hotel for 3 days and 2 nights while attending a conference in Washington DC. As a woman, traveling alone, in DC for the first time, I was extremely nervous. I choose this hotel based on price and amenities that were offered. Needless to say I was not expecting much but wasn't I pleasantly surprised. The... More

We stayed at this hotel at the recommendation of a good friend. The hotel itself is decently clean and the front desk was quite friendly. The shuttle driver was nice. The hotel is located a short walk away from Crystal City shopping area and the metro system. My main two complaints are this: 1. The hotel had a mildewed smell... More

Read other reviews before we booked this hotel and would have to agree. It doesn't look all that nice from the outside, but our room was very nice as was the lobby. Our room was very comfortable, king size bed, also had a fridge. There was free parking (unlike many hotels we found on line) and also had a free... More

Not the nicest place that I've stayed at, but it did the job. The place is older, and in need of some modernization - the room I stayed in was one that was not recently renovated. The wifi was spotty, working better in some parts of the room than others, the old square TV was out of date and had... More

This was to be our first hotel out of a total of 9 we were to stay in in the following 3 weeks (we did a East Coast road trip). We arrived tired and had to wait for around 5 minutes before the female receptionist who was on the phone decided to acknowledge our existence. After chatting a bit more... More

The other great reviews convinced me that this was the place to go and they were right on! It was so clean and comfy. Staff made us feel so welcome and were so nice. The location is great, didn't even use the shuttle to the metro as it was so close by. We used the shuttle to take us to... More
