Entrance is on Eads St between Bank of America and Embassy Suites. Parking was free. The hotel looks like a throwback to the 1950's but don't let that scare you. We had a deluxe Queen room which I would say was a basic hotel room. It looked like it had been recently updated. If you are looking for luxury, you will not find it here. That being said, the bed was very comfortable (should have asked for an extra pillow), and the room was very clean. The bathroom was small but on par with what you would find in a typical home built in the 60's. Again, it was very clean which is what matters to me. The WiFi reception in our room was not great but it worked fine in the lobby.
We walked to the Crystal City metro (which is under the Marriot hotel) in just a few minutes. We also walked to Pentagon City shopping center, Costco and even to the Pentagon for our tour there. So, you can see that the hotel is very conveniently located.
Breakfast, which is included, consisted of 4 types of cold cereal, donuts, bagels and fresh fruit. I think there was some instant oatmeal as well. The coffee was good and there was some juice.
If you are looking for clean, basic accommodations at a great rate for the area, then I'd recommend the Americana Hotel.
