We wanted a nice place to stay without spending a fortune for our first trip to our nation's capitol. We are thrilled we decided to stay at the Americana. It is an older hotel, but the rooms are very clean and the staff is very friendly and helpful. The free breakfast consisted of a great variety of croissants, donuts, muffins and bagels, juice, milk and coffee, maybe hot tea too. There was always plenty, and we usually had enough left over for a quick snack of muffins, a welcome treat when we came in after a day of sightseeing in DC. (I took the pictures before maid service, so don't worry -- beds are made and towels are fresh and clean every day!)
Because we drove, the free parking was a definite plus, since many other places charged $15-20 a night. We parked right outside the lobby area. We didn't need the shuttle service, but two clean vans were always available. We always walked to the Crystal City metro station, only a couple of blocks away. Great shopping and restaurants nearby too. The staff was very friendly, and quite helpful with directions and suggestions for restaurants and anything else we wanted to see.
We will be going back to DC, and we will be staying at the Americana again. It was a tremendous bargain, we felt safe and comfortable. The hotel provided everything we needed, it was always clean, friendly and comfortable.
