I've been to DC so many times, and I've stayed at countless of high-end hotels in downtown. Yet the Americana is now the top hotel for me when I visit the DC area. The hotel is basic, simple, and yet amazing all at the same time. When you wake up in the morning, there is free breakfast plus a newspaper from 6 AM-10 AM. What a great deal - Dunkin' Donuts, coffee, bagels, cereal, muffins, juice, the works!
When you're ready to leave the hotel, you can either take the wonderful shuttle service (who will bring you directly to the Crystal City Metro entrance) or take the quick walk across Jefferson Davis Highway. Either way, it's no more than 5 minutes. You're close to the Crystal City shops, the Blue or Yellow Line of the Metro, shops that line outside of the metro, and the Arlington park across the lake from Ronald Reagan National Airport with beautiful views of the Washington Monument.
The bed is really soft with amazingly soft pillows, the bathroom was cleaned daily by a great staff with towels always available, the fridge was helpful so I could buy dinner and come home and put it in the fridge, and the television had great reception and was great to use when I was home at night.
If you're coming in from Reagan, this is a 3 minute metro ride to Crystal City. The staff is helpful, will give directions, and even helped me with a bottle of wine (I wasn't able to open the cork!). I've never been one to say this, but I'm in love with a hotel, and for the price, I'll stay again.
