We stayed at the Americana and used the metro so I didn't have to try to navigate the city. It was definitely not a quality hotel but we felt safe and it was somewhat on the cheap side. They had free parking and free shuttle to metro. Free breakfast was just fruit, a muffin and bagel and juice I think. They might have had some cereal too. Found the recommendations for it on tripadvisor. They seem to refer this one to anyone looking for a decent, but cheap place to stay. My teenager wasn't too keen on it, but all we had to do was sleep there....
It was a pretty old place and I know that there were stairs to get in and stairs to get to the elevator (because I was so annoyed with trying to get my ROLLING cooler to my room--- while the front desk person just chuckled at my sorry attempt!). Once you got up the 4 stairs, there was an elevator to take you to your floor. BUT it was VERY slow.
I would stay here again due to the value. The price is very reasonable and the extras that you get - free parking, free shuttle, free breakfast- definitely make this hotel a NO BRAINER!
