We recently helped move my son to DC. I had researched hotels closer to his apartment in DC and was discouraged by the rates of upwards of $200 per night with an additional $25-$35 to park the car. Determined to find a better solution I went across the river to Arlington where I stumbled across TripAdvisor's reviews of the Americana Hotel. What a find! If you are looking for a luxury hotel this is not for you. But if you are looking for a comfortable and clean place, convenient to the Metro, at an incredible rate, look no further. We opted to stay in one of the deluxe rooms based on some of the reviews I had read that said that "deluxe" meant the room was more recently renovated (2012, I think.) The room was pleasing with an incredibly comfortable bed. The bathroom was a bit retro with its older facilities (sink, tub, etc.) and its pink tiles but was squeaky clean which is most important to us. The water was also very hot and plentiful. In the morning they offered a very basic continental breakfast (included in your rate) of bagels, donuts, muffins and cereal with juice and coffee. Parking is included in your hotel rate and on the day you check out you can leave your car there until midnight which gives you an added day to sight-see, etc. using public transportation. All of this for $93 (deluxe king.) Less than half of what I would have paid across the river. The only minor complaint we have is that the wifi was not strong enough in our room and my husband went downstairs to the cafe area to access the internet more reliably. We would stay here again in a second. Friendly and helpful staff, too.
