I stayed alone at the Americana April 16-19. I loved this place! It was safe, clean, close to the metro, free wifi and a decent (but not outstanding) breakfast. Breakfast consisted of donuts, muffins, bagels, fruit, coffee, juice and cereals. The donuts were pretty good.
The lobby always had a water cooler/hot water dispenser available. This was very useful as I was able to fill my water bottle before leaving for the day.
Don't expect anything fancy, because this place definitely is not fancy,. However, I really liked the old school retro styling of the place. I was worried that my room would have one of those old school nasty comforters on the bed, but no. They have updated to duvet covers. whew.. The bathroom had pretty sweet pink tile. win.
My only complaint is that the water pressure was low on the 4th floor. But, when you only pay $63 a night, it's fine. Seriously, compared to anything else in the area, this place is a steal.
Bonus: The diet coke machine sells 20oz sodas for only a buck. Yeah, I like that.
I'll be back the next time I'm in the DC area!
