Just a few blocks from the Pentagon, downtown DC in 10 minutes by car. That is a good location. Hotel is simple and cheap, things work, room is quiet, bed is good, showers work. Wireless too. Breakfast predictable, plastic stuff, even the bagels were plastic I think. Coffee nothing more than brown water. Staff friendly but most of the time... More

I was there for 5 nights in October for a business trip. This hotel is really a nice hotel with all the facilities within a comfortable budget. The breakfast was really helpful as the restaurants are not nearby. The hotel also offers drop services to nearby restaurants for free. I loved staying here.

We have traveled across east US coast for last couple of weeks. Most of the time we chose the hotel via internet. In case of DC we just got discount coupons in virginia and we found out this hotel there. First impression: old hotel.... It was really a bad impression indeed. Spanish guy in reception even offered us better price... More

Tucked in among the mega-hotels of the mega-chains, this hotel seems like it may have been there before the building boom. It's quiet, it's clean, the staff is friendly. There's free parking in a surface lot, and the Wifi is free as well. Best of all, it's inexpensive, well under a third of the price of its neighbors. If you're... More

I'm going to say similar things as the other positive reviewers. I apologize for the wordiness, but I personally like to know what I'm getting into when I read the reviews (if you want to say only "it was great" or "it sucked" why bother to write a review?). The hotel doesn't compare visually to the surrounding hotels, but the... More

The Americana is relatively small and tucked between giant chain name hotels. The price I paid was about $300 for 5 nights here, vs nearly $300 for one night literally next door. The staff was very courteous, the room cleaner than I have experienced at the big chains, and the extras are most welcome. There is free internet in the... More

I was very pleasantly surprised by this hotel. I was to Washington on a business trip, and it turned out that no hotels were available in D.C. for less than 300 bucks/ night. I got positive recommendations from colleagues about the Americana, so I decided to book a room in it. The hotel itself is more of a speedway motel,... More

I needed a quick stop over for an early meeting in DC. This hotel was a great choice on my small budget. Nothing fancy at all but well worth the money, close to metro and clean.

We recently stayed for a week at the American Hotel. It was clean, convenient and very affordable. Also, the beds were comfortable, with no back pain in the morning. The shuttle service and drivers were great, especially after a day of walking in DC. The breakfast was more than adequate and was keep stocked. This was my second visit to... More
