First of all, to set your expectations right. Rave reviews do not necessarily mean a swanky hotel right in the heart of downtown, with concierge and butler. From outside, it looks like a motel. But in terms of value, quality, and service, Americana beats more well-known hotels hands down. Think about a standard clean Holiday Inn with consistent service but... More

The price was OK. The locations was OK. Everything was fine, except the Internet did not work for the three days I was there. And I understand that there could be technical issues. But when the staff talked to me like I was an idiot saying the Internet in my room didn't work because of the weather, I was somewhat... More

I attended a conference at another hotel a block away, so this hotel was convenient, not to mention affordable... about half the rate from host hotel (yuck) LOL Americana had all I needed... location, low price, great decor (rooms are so cute with their vintage bathrooms), daily breakfast. Front desk staff was always smiling and greeted me everyday :) Only... More

An Australian would know what I mean when I saw that on arrival I felt like I was looking at a motel on the Hume Highway circa 1960.....but once we got over that shock ......the rooms have been renovated and are clean and pleasant (a little more window cleaning would improve the outlook). Breakfast is free but eating it off... More

This is an excellent hotel for the Washington, D.C. Area. The rooms were comfortable and the beds were even more. The negatives were no microwave, slow elevator, and difficult but not impossible for the handicapped. But the price and location were perfect. Shopping and metro were closeby or you could take their shuttle. DC attractions were easy to get to... More

Chose this hotel because of proximity to DC and it fit our budget. Beds were comfortable, rooms clean (except for outside sliding glass door...that was filthy...seriously needs a cleaning), and a short distance away from Crystal City Shops. Wifi never worked on any of our devices and the cable was fuzzy the entire stay (went out during storm completely, but... More

Since I was on a budget I was immediately drawn by the rates, but VERY skeptical, so I took to the internet in search of reviews and all were pretty favorable; so I booked the room and hoped for the best. Before I go any further into my experience let me say I've stayed at some VERY high end hotels;... More

I've stayed at the Americana for long-term stays over the last several years as I work in Washington, DC but live in Boston. I've always had a good experience and this year was no exception. Many factors make the Americana #1 in my book--low price, convenient location, cleanliness of hotel, pleasant and accommodating staff, free breakfast and limo service, etc.,... More

We've stayed at the Americana twice now. Both times our room was available hours ahead of check in. It's clean, conveniently located, and good priced. The shuttle and staff are extremely accommodating. We'd definitely stay here again!!!
